Firestone FR710 tires. Cracks were noted in the sidewalls. The tread appears to be separating around the entire circumference of the 2 tires on the passenger side of the car. The tires are date coded 4210 and have approximately 17000 miles on them. The tires have been well cared for and rotated every 6000 miles. Photos are available for review.

problem #2

Malibu 4-cyl

  • 2 miles
Vehicle at highway speeds of 65 - 75 mph will experience a vibration that can be felt in the seats and in the steering wheel. Vibration will not go away and will worsen after a wheel balancing. Manufacturer has stated that the vibration is inherent in the vehicles design and they will not repair the vehicle. The vibration causes premature tire where that could lead to possible tire failure.

2011 Chevrolet malabu does not come equipped with spare tire; only an air pump. This is absurd, unsafe and dangerous. If flat tire occurs it will not hold air, rendering air pump useless, and leaving driver stranded. Dealer did not tell about no spare tire when making new lease 6-30-11. Understand all 2011 Chevrolet do not have spare tire. Immediate action needed to require all cars be equipped with a spare tire.
