Zephyr 6-cyl

  • 60,000 miles


After having multiple flat tires - which I incorrectly attributed to bad luck - I discovered the problem was not my tires at all, but was instead, the chrome peeling on the inner rim of the wheels, which not only created an air leak from the seal not holding, but also damaged the very-expensive-to-replace tires. I learned this when I tried to put 4 new tires on the car, thinking maybe all the flats were due to the brand of tires, and costco showed me the peeling chrome problem and told me not to waste my money on new tires until the wheels were replaced. Was informed this manufacturing defect with the chrome plating is not a problem Ford will fix at their expense and the cost for putting new non-chrome wheels on the car would all be mine. Apparently sudden flats due to defective chrome is not regarded as a safety issue by Ford.

2006 Lincoln Zephyr. 22K miles. All 4 rims corrode causing tires to loose air. Tire shop broke down tires and cleaned rims. Applied sealant around lip and remounted tires. Tire shop owner indicated he has cleaned and resealed a number of 2006 Lincoln Zephyr aluminum wheels. At 35K miles all 4 tires were replaced at Lincoln dealer. Two weeks after new tires installed front driver side tire came off rim due to low air pressure. I complained to dealer that the tires are leaking air. Dealer acknowledged problem with rims and replaced tire free of charge. Dealer also indicated all four rims were cleaned and resealed.

The contact owns a 2006 Lincoln Zephyr. The contact stated that all four wheels on his vehicle were defective. The wheels cause the tires to flatten and will not hold air. The contact must place air in the tires each week. The dealer stated that the vehicle needed new wheels, but at the contact's expense because they were not covered under warranty. The failure mileage was 43,905. Updated 4/16/09 updated 04/20/09.
