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

bonnet catch on my 106 failed and up came the bonnet on the gas struts, couldn't see anything, slam the anchors on at 70 as there was a car right in front, then over onto the hard shoulder.

Also had the wiper motor overheat and stop in heavy rain on the kingston bridge in glasgow with no hard shoulder, had to follow the foglight of a mate in front who realised what was happening. The other thing was that the fuse that controlled the wiper motor popped and also controlled the hazard lights and the electric windows. scary stuff.
