    Driving on W.E. Highway in Mumbai at 100. I pass in front of a truck to go left (signalling first of course). Suddenly my car sputters and stalls ... right in front of the speeding truck. I shift to neutral and cruise to the side. I can hear the trucks tyres squealing behind me but its only when I get down and people gather around do I realize what a close call it was.
    So why am I writing about this on the service sub forum?
    Because the car had just got back a day ago from a routine service.
    What happened was...

    Well don't leave us hanging here! What went wrong and which service center was it?

    The WEH in my opinion should be downgraded to "dirt track with a film of tar on top". I have seen better roads in Ladakh! Other than the bumps and pot holes I have frequently come across overturned trucks near the foot of the flyovers and cars rammed into the barriers at the foot of the flyovers. Yes it's mostly over speeding and bad driving, but the flyovers are very poorly designed and the whole stretch is ill maintained. I would not exceed 80-90 on this road.

    Why this half story? Also the title is very frightening. Kindly make full posts so that there are no speculations and uproars.
