Hankook Brand Tire – Chipping, Cutting And/Or Unusual/Accelerated Tread Wear – 2015-2018 Ford Explorer

Posted By PSME Admins, Friday, 18 May 2018

2015-2018 Ford Explorer with defective tires -- unusual accelerated tread wear.

There is a new term now in the motoring world. After the term "Sudden Unintended Acceleration or SUA" now comes "UNUSUAL ACCELERATED TREAD WEAR or UATW"

Ford Philippines is NOT telling the owners of Ford Explorers that many of their vehicle have this problem of unusual accelerated tread wear. The tires affected are of Hankook brand.

Owners of Ford Explorer who brought their vehicle are then made to wait for 5 months or more before they get a free replacement. Ford will then argue for a 50% coverage of the warranty only after putting the lives of their customers in danger by not issuing any warning. This delay forces their customers to buy a new set of tires just to be safe.

PSME is issuing this statement to call the attention of FORD Philippines and to serve as warning to the public of the dangers poise by tires with UNUSUAL ACCELERATED TREAD WEAR to motorist and pedestrians.

We are also calling on the Department of Trade and Industry and the Department of Transportation to look into this matter for the sake of public safety.
