DURING TRAVEL ON INTERSTATE 40 AT EXIT 56, DRIVERS SIDE FRONT TIRE SEPARATED CAUSING DAMAGE TO INNER FENDER, WINDSHIELD WASHER ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS, AND FENDER AND NEARLY CAUSING CATASTROPHIC LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL AND LOSS OF LIFE OF AN ENTIRE FAMILY. ALL TIRES WERE AT THE PROPER INFLATION AND TEMPERATURE RANGE AT THE TIME OF THE INCIDENT. WITH ONLY 20,000 MILES ON THE TIRE, THIS SEEMS TO BE MANUFACTURED DEFECT FROM THE GENERAL TIRE COMPANY. I NO LONGER CONSIDER GENERAL TIRES TO BE A RELIABLE PRODUCT AND WILL RESEARCH AND SEEK REPLACEMENTS FROM OTHER REPUTABLE TIRE COMPANIES. I DO RECOMMEND PRODUCT RECALL OF THE AMERITRAC LT235/80R17 TIRE LINE AS WELL AS PRODUCT SAFETY COMPLIANCE INSPECTIONS OF THE GENERAL TIRE COMPANY.

UNKNOWN OR OTHER

11/13/2014 - PALMYRA, VA
THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN MAINTAINED ACCORDING TO THE MANUAL PERFECTLY AND IN MOST CASES MAINTENANCE DONE BEFORE REQUIRED. ON THE DATE ABOVE I WAS DRIVING HOME AND THE VEHICLE LOST POWER. SINCE I WAS 2 HOURS FROM HOME I HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED TO THE LOCAL DEALER. THEIR REPAIR ORDER INDICATES THAT ALL 6 INJECTORS, THE DPF, CRANKCASE BREATHER FILTER, THERMOSTAT, OX SENSOR AND 2 TEMP SENSORS MUST BE REPLACED. IN ADDITION, THE ENTIRE FUEL SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE CLEANED OUT INCLUDING ALL FILTERS, AIR AND FUEL AND OIL CHANGED AND FILTER. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT ALL THIS WORK WILL COST ME $7500. THIS TRUCK HAS TOO LITTLE MILEAGE TO NEED ALL THIS WORK. THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE LAST TRUCK I WOULD OWN FIGURING THE CUMMINS ENGINE'S REPUTATION. INTERESTED IN WHETHER THIS TRUCK IS AN ABERRATION OR IS IT SIMILAR TO TRUCKS WITH THE FIRST CLEAN BURNING ENGINE?
