: the contact stated the vehicle vibrated badly at any speed. The dealership aligned the front end, balanced the tires, and rotated the tires three times to correct the vibration, but the problem persisted. The dealership determined the left front tire's belt was broken and replaced the tire. On June 10, 2006, the tread on the left front tire detached and caused extensive damage to the vehicle.

Since ownership of vehicle consumer noticed that the front tires were not balanced, vehicle would vibrate at 60 mph, consumer was advised by dealership that they would not try to balance tires until the vehicle had at least 1000 miles on it, once vehicle obtained the miles consumer took vehicle back to dealership and was then advised that the two front tires could not be balanced because they were defective, the rear tires were balanced but would not be satisfactory to transfer to the front as they would probably shake, consumer has replaced all four (general tires) and is now requesting reimbursement.
