TIRES

9/18/2000 - MARIETTA, GA
AS I WAS DRIVING, I HEAR A NOISE COMING FROM OUTSIDE AND COULD FEEL ROUGHNESS IN THE RIDE AND THE STEERING. I PULLED OVER WITHIN 30 SECONDS TO FIND THAT MY TIRE WAS 80 % FLAT. UPON REPLACING THE TIRE I SAW THAT THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE OF PUNCTURE OR NAILS TO THE TIRE. A FEW MINUTES LATER AFTER I HAD PUT MY SPARE TIRE ON, I STOPPED AND INFLATED THE FLAT TIRE TO SEE WHERE THE DAMAGE MIGHT BE. AFTER INFLATING TO ABOUT 10 PSI I STOPPED BECAUSE I NOTICED THAT THE SIDEWALL NEAR THE OUTSIDE EDGE(NEAR TREAD) HAD A VERY SOFT SPOT THAT I COULD HAVE PROBABLY PUSHED MY FINGER THROUGH. IT WAS ALMOST AS SOFT AND THIN AS A INNER TUBE. THEN I ALSO NOTICED SEVERAL LUMPS ABOUT 1 TO1 1/2 INCHES IN DIAMETER ALMOST ALL THE WAY AROUND THE TIRE CASING NEAR THE OUTER EDGE. THIS WAS ALL ON THE WHITE LETTER SIDE OF THE TIRE. I BRIEFLY LOOK AT THE BACK SIDE BUT DID NOT NOTICE ANYTHING. ALL THE TIME I NEVER HEARD AN AIR LEAK, ALTHOUGH AN HOUR LATER IT WAS FLAT AGAIN. AS I STATED EARLIER I ONLY PUT APPX. 10 PSI. WHEN I SAW THE KNOTS APPEAR I STOPED IN FEAR OF THE CASING RUPTURING. IT DEFINITLEY APPEARS TO BE AN INTERNAL PROBLEM SUCH AS BELT OR PLY SEPARATION. BEFORE I CONTACT CHEVROLET OR FIRESTONE I WANTED TO BRING THIS TO YOUR ATTENTION SINCE I THINK THIS MIGHT BE RELATED TO THE CURRENT PROBLEM THE THE OTHER RECALLED TIRES AND DID NOT WANT THE EVIDENCE(MY TIRE) POSSIBLY LOST OR DESTROYED WITH YOU HAVING A CHANCE TO SEE IT IF YOU WISH. NON THE LESS I NOW NEED A SPARE, SO I HAVE TO DO SOMETHING SOON. I WILL KEEP THE DEFECT THOUGH. I REALLY DO NOT WANT TO PUT ANOTHER FIRESTONE ON MY TRUCK. UNTIL TODAY I THOUGHT THE PROBLEM WAS ONLY ON THE 235 TIRE. ME AND MY FAMILY NEED YOUR HELP TO ASSURE US THAT MY FIRESTONES ARE SAFE OR SHOULD I BE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER TIRE. PLEASE ADVISE SOON AS POSSIBLE. THANKS GEORGE( DOT NUMBER: V672WLI070 TIRE SIZE: 265/70R16 )

SEAT BELTS: FRONT: RETRACTOR

9/13/2000 - CHULA VISTA, CA
AFTER PURCHASING NEW 2000 VEHICLE, UNABLE TO PROPERLY SECURE CHILD'S SAFTY SEAT INTO MIDDLE POSITION OF THIRD ROW SEATS DUE TO POSITION OF SEAT BELT. ADDITIONALLY, THERE IS NOT MEANS PROVIDED TO SECURE SAFETY STRAP. THERE IS ONLY ONE SECURE POINT PROVIDED, BUT IT IS NEXT TO A WINDOW AND SEAT BELT CAN'NT BE PROPERLY SECURED TO PERMIT NO MOVEMENT WITH CAR SEAT. ALSO, THE SEAT BELT SNAPS ARE NOT POSITIONED IN THE SEAM OF THE SEAT BUT SEVERAL INCHES OUT FROM THE SEAT BACK, THUS MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE TO SECURE ANY SEAT WITHOUT MOVEMENT. MANUFACTURE REPRESENTIVES HAVE ASSURED ME THAT THE SAFEST SEAT IN THE VEHILCE FOR CHILDREN IS THE MIDDLE POSITION. THEN WHY IS A SECURE POINT NEXT TO A WINDOW AND USING A SEAT BELT THAT RELIES ON SUDDEN STOP OF VEHICLE TO STOP THE THE MOVEMENT OF THE SEAT BELT? 2ND ISSUE - FIRESTONE TIRES PROVIDED BY MANUFACTURE WERE ONLY INFLATED TO 24 PSI (THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN 80 PSI),WITH VEHILCE WAS DELIVERED AT SALE. THUS GIVING FALSE SAFETY TO NEW OWNER. IT WOULD APPEAR THAT DEALER MIGHT NOT BE FOLLOWING PRESCRIBED SAFTEY REQUIREMENTS IN PREP OF VEHILCE PRIOR TO DELIVERY TO BUYER. IN LIGHT OF THE NATIONAL CONCERNS REGARDING FIRESTONE TIRES, IT WOULD BE ASSUMED THAT ALL FIRESTONE TIRES NOT TO MENTION ALL BRANDS SHOULD BE UP TO PROPER SAFETY INFLATION STANDARDS PRIOR TO SALE TO PUBLIC. PLEASE PROVIDE INPUT ON HOW THESE ISSUES CAN BE RESOLVED.
