Bought 4 grand spirit touring tires size 185/60tr15 on 6/15/05. Belts on two of these tires separated. One on 7/21/08 the second on 12/19/08. Manufacturer of these tires is tbc tires. One of these tires was prorated and replaced. I was informed by tire retailer, tire kingdom, that the tire is no longer available. Now I have a tire with belt separation and two more that will no doubt do the same.

I bought the vehicle 2 months ago. Since then I have put $750 into repairs and have estimates for $1000 more worth of repairs. The manufacturers problems included a rear main oil seal leak, an oil pan gasket leak, and a distributor switch leak. There was also a bent wheel, damaged tire, and bad starter. The dealer (dick morris Chevrolet) will do nothing to fix it.

While driving at 65 mph on the freeway my left rear tire blew out spinning me out of control. I hit a road side sign (one leg of the sign 12" X 24" post) on the left front quarter panel, continuing down over a small incline and coming to rest a few yards away. My seat belt failed to retract, air bags failed to deploy and the seat failed to keep me in an upright position. All this failures resulting in my being throwing around inside the car.

My Neon has 16,000 miles on it and the tires have screeched since I ibought the car. The dealership said that is normal in rainy weather. Well the weather is no longer rainy and Chrysler refuses to stand behind their brakes. They told me I need new brakes shoes and the rotors shaved and they even charged me to tell me that.

I brought my car in October of 99 and I've been through 11 brand new tires for some unexplained reason I keep having blowouts all the treads are intact but the sides of the tires end up with chunks missing from them. I was driving in the city doing about 30 when I felt my car pulling away from me and I could barley control it so I pulled over to check it out N there were 2 chunks missing out fot the outer side of the tire from it blowing out and the inner side of the tire looked like someone took a can opener to it. Needless to say the 4 original tires my car came with did the same thing those tires were replace and my tires can only be replaced by good year model P185/60R15 no other tire fits I had 4 tires replaced in mayof 2000 then I replaced another 3 because of the same problem in feb2001 all at my own expense and it is now July and a nother tire blew im sick of it. At first I thought maybe it was just wear and tare but not im starting to wonder 11 tires in less then 2 years something has to be wrong. (tiresize: P185\60R15)

Car was pulling to the right. Dealer said a screw was loose, so they tightened it. Month later still pulling, they did an alignment, that still didn't work. 3 inch bar that holds back wheel was bent, support bar. Driver's side tire was bent inward.
