Ford Explorer Tire BlowOut
I had just purchased by 1997 Ford Explorer in June 1997. In September 1997, my front tire blew out. Luckily, I kept control of the car and was able to exit the freeway in a safe manner. I took my vehicle back to the Ford dealer, but of course they said that nothing could be done because there was no recall. My question is can we be reimbursed for the tires we paid for because of the blowout or do we have to eat the charges?
