I took my car to Canadian Tire for an oil change. I picked it up and my wife drove gently around town for 14 km. She was idling up to a stop light when the car came to an instant stop. Motor now has con rod through side of block. Canadian Tire claims that the bolts came loose from the piston causing the rod to separate and go through block. The motor was running perfectly up to this point and had never been apart since new. There aws no warning, like overhaeting or anything like that. Car was running fine one second and comepletely destroyed instantly. The car move less than 5 feet stop.
