problem #3

We had just driven about 200 miles on the highway and pulled into our hotel parking lot. The car was in perfectly fine working order with no indication of a problem. When we returned to the car to go out, it made a scraping clunking, sound from the front driver's side wheel when we moved or turned the wheel. We managed to get it to a nearby repair shop where it was determined that the front driver's side coil spring had snapped while it was parked in the hotel parking lot. The coil was replaced.
