Firestone Spare Tire Recall

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:42 by admin
Six years and hundreds of deaths after the original Firestone tire recall, as many as 200,000 tires may still be on the road. There have been 271 deaths from crashes involving Firestone ATX and Wilderness AT tires. Over six million tires were recalled in 2000, nearly three years after executives at Firestone began discussing possible problems with their product.

On July 21, 2006, Firestone renewed its original recall after three deaths in the last two years were linked to spare tires mistakenly used by owners. According to reports, many of the replacement tires were sometimes scarce at the time of the initial recall. Owners also forgot about their spare tires which, on Ford Explorers and some other SUVs, are attached to the vehicle's undercarriage.
