While driving I would hear rattling noises coming from under the vehicle. I took it to a repair facility and it was discovered that a propeller shaft bolt inside the torque tube assembly came lose and damaged the bearing inside the torque tube. It is my understanding that this could have caused the transmission to freeze/fail, lose control and cause an accident. I had to have the entire torque tube assembly removed and replaced. This occurred one week after the expiration of GM's five year drivetrain warranty.

My husband was pumping gas at a gas station on an interstate access road. Car was not running and was locked. He had been at the pump for about 5 minutes and then walked into the store for something to drink. All of a sudden I heard people yelling and turned to look and then saw my husband's unmanned car slowly rolling out of the gas station into the access road during rush hour. A couple of individuals tried to stop the car but it was locked and my husband had the keys in his pocket. Several vehicles swerved to miss the car but it eventually hit an individual's vehicle in the center lane of the access road causing damage to both vehicles.
