problem #3

Sep 162011


  • 120,000 miles


Uniroyal 2256016 awp II on all four wheels. Van started pulling to the right and got progressively worse until I took it in for alignment. Alignment was fine. Kept driving. Pulling got so bad that van would start careening off road if steering wheel was let go (even at slow speeds). Removed front right tire and put on front left wheel - van started pulling left. Took van in to tire store - technician indicated tread had approx 15,000 miles left, but tread was separating from rest of tire.

: the contact stated the tire was very low and seemed to be flat. The vehicle was taken to a tire dealer who determined the valve needed to be replace and the tire was inflated. In July, one of the other tires were very low. The vehicle was taken to the tire dealer who determined the tread was worn out and the tire was replaced. The tire dealer also determined that all the tread on all tires were worn and needed to be replaced. Only one tire was replaced at that time. The vehicle was taken to the service dealer for a second opinion who agreed that the tread of the tires were worn and recommended new tires. The other three tires were replaced at the tire dealer. The vehicle was taken back to the service dealer for an alignment. The vehicle had only been driven for 14,500 miles before the tires had to be replaced due to tread wear. The tires had been serviced regularly for tire pressure and tire rotation. The tire manufacturer was contacted who determined that they would reimburse for the tires.

MPV 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
Bad vibration caused by the front brake rotors being out of round. Dealer resurfaced rotors two times and now needs resurfacing a third time. The MPV only has 31,000 miles on it. The dealer will not replace under warranty. This should not happen at approximately every 10,000 miles. It is a 2003 purchased new in 2004. The tires are wearing in the front due to the alignment to the point of needing replaced. The alignment should not of gone bad in this short of time.
