TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
I am a Firestone employee who has been handling most of the recall issues with our store. It makes me sick to hear all this dumb nonsense about these tires!!! If people actually knew half of what they think they know and wouldn't blame eveything that happens as the tires fault, we wouldn't have half of the country worried!!!
I have seen too many tires that people say, "it just blew out", to actually sit back and not say anything at all. We see it all the time and 90% of the time you can show them why it did what it did! now that this recall has started, it has gotten even worse.
Two incidents stick in my head. First tire came in as blow out. We happily pulled the nail out and the guy left driving on it! Second tire came in as a tread seperation. The guy was driving and the tire did exactly what they said the tires were doing. Too bad the sidewall was chewed out of it because someone didn't repair it properly and the patch came off when he was driving 70 miles per hour.
I guess I want to voice my own opinion after I read all of the "Voice your concerns" section. More than a few of them are exactly what I am talking about! There would be alot less worried people out there if the media and people would quit blowing all these stories up!!
PLEASE POST THIS SO OTHER PEOPLE CAN SEE IT - A PHONE TIED FIRESTONE EMPLOYEE
