Just eight months after purchasing four new tires from just tires, I felt the car sliding in the rain and decided to take my car to the Toyota dealership to be checked. I was informed that the tires were completely bald and too dangerous to drive on. I live in los angeles, I do not drive on road-wearing terrain but residential streets and freeways, so there is no obvious reason as to why the tires were worn out just eight months later. I then contacted just tires directly with my complaint and brought them the worn tires. Their response was that the cause was due to the wheels not being aligned. However, on examining the original work order from just tires, it shows that the car was ¿checked for alignment¿. if the work wasn't carried out, I should not be held responsible for just tires shoddy workmanship and if the work was carried out then the fault was with the original tires and, again, I should not be held responsible. To solve the issue, I would like a full refund for the tires including all ¿extras¿ namely $986 (the cost of replacing the tires and labor). I originally paid just tires $612.12 and they have now offered me paltry sum of $292.

I have a 2006 Toyota Highlander hybrid. It has the four wheel drive "I"system. Any time the vehicle senses slipping in the tires it cuts power to all wheels. I have been stuck in very manageable conditions. Not only do you not get 4 wheel drive to help out of adverse conditions, you get no drive to any wheels and are left stuck. I spoke with Toyota and they said that the vehicle is designed to do this to prevent damage to the hybrid system. There is no information in any of the literature provided when purchasing a vehicle. This vehicle should not be sold to anyone who drives in snow or on any thing other than an improved road. Toyota acknowledged that they have received other complaints regarding this issue but will not correct it, nor inform buyers about it's design. This will undoubtedly strand drivers in adverse conditions they deem manageable.

During routine maintenance of my vehicle, I was advised that the tire tread was separating and that all of them needed to be replaced. The mileage on the tires was less than 16,000 miles. The tire model is toyo transpath A11.
