I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT THESE ABS SYTSTEMS HAVE NOT BEEN RECALLED, DURING A PANIC STOP THE SYSTEM FAILS, PEDAL DROPS TO THE FLOOR AND PULSATES, AND LEAVES YOU WITH NO BRAKING. HAD ONE ACCIDENT AND SEVERAL NEAR MISSES. IN A VEHICLE THIS SIZE AND WEIGHT THIS PROBLEM SHOULD BE RECALLED BEFORE MORE FATALITIES ACCUR.

TIRES

9/4/2001 - JOPLIN, MO
AFTER I PURCHASED A REPLACEMENT SET OF TIRES ( IDENTICAL TO ORIGINAL EQMT TIRES) I NOTED A VIBRATION WOULD DEVELOP ABOVE 63 MPH. I TOOK THE CAR BACK TO DEALER ( A FIRESTONE STORE )... THEY RE-BALANCED THE TIRES...THE VIBRATION CONTINUED...A SECOND TRIP TO THE DEALER RESULTED IN NOTHING- THEY SAID THE PROBLEM MUST BE IN THE VEHICLE EVEN THOUGH I POINTED OUT THERE WAS NO VIBRATION WITH THE OLD TIRES...THEY REFUSED TO TEST DRIVE THE CAR. AFTER DRIVING THE VEHICLE SOME 43,000 MILES ( MOSTLY STAYING AROUND 60 MPH) ONE TIRE BLEW OUT IN THE SIDEWALL WITH A RADIAL FAILURE FROM THE TREADBELT TO THE BEAD.. A 'CATASTROPHIC' FAILURE. NO ACCIDENT OR DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLE RESULTED BUT THE VIBRATION WENT AWAY AS SOON AS THE SPARE HIT THE ROAD. THE DEALER ADJUSTED AT 50% COST OF A NEW TIRE ON A "ROAD HAZARD" WARRANTY EVEN THOUGH THE TIRE WAS OBVIOUSLY DEFECTIVE FROM NEW. NOW I AM RUNNING ON 3 REMAINING TIRES AND NOW FIND A SIMULAR VIBRATION DEVELOPS AT 70 MPH. (TIRESIZE: 245 75 R16)

ABS WILL CAUSE LEFT FRONT WHEEL TO LOCK UP PREMATURELY, AND PULL A LITTLE TO RIGHT DURING HARD BRAKING OR WET CONDITIONS. DEALERSHIP HAS EXAMINED VEHICLE, AND NOT BEEN ABLE TO DETERMINE A REASON FOR THIS PROBLEM. CONSUMER STATES LEFT FRONT LOCKS UP ON SLIPPERY SURFACE OR ON GRAVEL ROAD, DURING LIGHT BRAKING, VEHICLE PULLS TO THE RIGHT, DEALERSHIP COULD NOT FIGURE OUT PROBLEM.
