The contact owns a 2012 Dodge Avenger. The contact stated that while driving 55 mph, the tire warning light illuminated. The contact later discovered that wiring from both rear tires was exposed from the sides. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection where they stated that the tires needed to be replaced and that the vehicle needed an alignment. The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred on the rear tires within 8,000 miles. The manufacturer was notified of the failure but could not determine that cause of the failure. The failure mileage was 13,400.

13400 miles on car when right rear tire went flat. When I took off flat inside shoulder of tire had worn thru cords. Took to Dodge dealer in covington, tn and they said alignment must be out. Noticed left rear tire also showing steel cords on inner shoulder. Tech said didn't look like car had alignment at factory. Did alignment and alignment was.03 degrease off on one tire the rest were within spec. Dealership cant explain what happened, no one ive talked to can explain what happened. 2000 miles from home in a new car and have to spend $400 on tires and alignment.....not happy.
