2001 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

problem #3

In the past few months, I have had 2 bulges on the sidewalls of my tires as well as a flat (again on the sidewall portion of the tire), which appear to be a result of product failure. The mastercraft sensys 01 215/70R15 were installed at a dealership on the front of my 2001 Pontiac Montana. Upon return to the dealer, he replaced the faulty tires and returned them to the distributor. The distributor replaced one at no charge to the dealer and charged him for the one with the bulge. The other tire with the bulge is currently sitting at the dealership, waiting for a representative from the distributor to view it, prior to replacement.

Tire came apart on inside of tire, this is the second one it happened to, the first time was last spring, I thought it was just a fluke until it happened again. I looked on this web site to see if there were any recalls or other complaints associated with this tire, but didn't see any. We had the tire replaced at sam's club where we had purchased the tires.
