Re: What's the scariest car failure you've had while driving?

Worst thing that happened to me was when I was driving my mother [who has severe dementia] home after visiting my terminally ill father in hospital and the brakes on my Clio decided to give up! Was terrifying! Was coming up to a roundabout and although braking, the car seemed to be going faster! Pumped the brake like mad and it got us stopped. Managed to get the car home by pumping the brakes like mad every time I needed to stop. Rang the RAC who came and checked the car - said nothing was wrong! Took the car to the garage the next day and it cost me over 300 to get it fixed. Don't think I will trust the RAC again though!
