I have a 2003 Dodge Neon with yokohama tires that are 185/60/15. I bought 4 tires and in a month in a half 2 of them both one that was a left front at highway speed the tire blew out the sidewalls. The other one that was on the rear left blew out 3 weeks earlier at highway seeds the sidewalls. I personally has to pay out of pocket to correct the problem.

I was in a small collision at the speed of 10 mph or less. I rear ended a Ford F150 truck because my brakes skided on the road, my 2003 Neon fishtailed, and I hit the bumper of the truck. My right headlight was smashed, and my radiator was also broken. After 3 minutes my engine caught on fire, and my entire car was engulfed in fire within 5 minutes after the collision. My airbag on both driver and passenger side did not go off, I didn't hit the truck at a highspeed, yet my car went up in flames. Everything in the car was melted, and I think this car is very unsafe. Had I hit a truck or been hit by another large or small car, I hate to wonder what would of happened then. Would I of made it out in time before it caught on fire, or would it blow up on impact?! Neons are not safe, and I think this car will catch on fire at any speed. I have pictures of the car that shows the damage from the collision, and you wouldn't ever think the small damage could catch this car on fire.
