This is a cumulative failure. The failure and failure modes are identical to the GTO failure currently under investigation NHTSA action number: PE07010. Make: Pontiac, model GTO, 2006. Component : suspension:front: Mcpherson strut. Tires:sidewall. Date investigation opened : February 16, 2007 and still open. ODI received 69 complaints that alleged a front strut to tire interference condition in model year 2004 through 2006 Pontiac GTO vehicles. The complaints indicated that the condition caused inner sidewall wear to the tires. Seven of the complainants alleged tire failure caused by the interference condition of the strut to the adjacent tire. Four of these complainants claimed they were traveling at speeds of 40 mph or greater when the tire failed. One of these complainants also stated the tire failure caused a crash. A preliminary evaluation was opened to assess the frequency, scope, and potential safety implications of the alleged defect.
