Consumer Alert - Faulty Tire Stems Could Cause Fatal Accidents
As many as 30 million potentially faulty tire valves have been installed on cars and vehicles throughout the U.S. between September 2006 and June 2007. The small valve stem lets air in and out of your tire. Several American tire makers and car and auto companies have used these valves.
The valves were manufactured in China and have a tendency to crack and split, which can result in a tire blowout or serious auto accidents. The valves lacked adequate ozone protection in the rubber, which can cause the rubber to crack prematurely and degrade more quickly than normal.
More than 200 complaints were filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration who has upped is investigation into the faulty valves. Driver complaints included seeing signs of cracked valves and leaking air, which caused flat tires and blowouts within eight to 14 months of usage. An additional danger is posed when the valves fail while the vehicle is in motion, giving the driver little time to react or correct the problem.
NHTSA recently expanded its investigation based on vehicle owner's complaints that Ford's North American models (between 2007 and 2008) have these defective tire valve stems. Models in question include Ford F-150, Mustang, Edge Fusion, Expedition, Explorer, Focus and Escape and the Mercury Grand.
Here is some important information and a few tips to determine whether the valves on your tires are safe:
