VIN: JM1CR293080****

Summary of Complaint

We bought 4 of these tires 1/23/2018. The first failed within 3 months (passenger rear). The tire distributor no longer carried them, so we fit the next best ... a different Primewell. Now, the driver side front tire has developed a bulge where the tread and sidewall meet - similar to the first failure. We cannot drive it and - still - the distributor no longer carries THAT tire. We have - as of 9/1/2021 driven the car a TOTAL of less than 14,000 miles since the purchase. The 50K warranty was ignored in the first failure; and we have been told that it is irrelevant in this second one. The size is 205/50R17 for both - all four. Both tires were continuously losing air and had to start carrying a portable air pump. Just noticed this weekend that the driver side tire was ONCE AGAIN low on air. When I went to fill it, noticed the bulge. Do not know hoe long ot has been there ... just noticed it this weekend.

Summary of Complaint

I BOUGHT 4 KUMHO TIRES SIZED 205 50R17 FOR THIS CAR IN SEPTEMBER OF 2015. IN AUGUST OF 2017, AT ABOUT 25000 MILES ON THE TIRES, ONE OF THEM DEVELOPED WHAT WE LATER LEARNED WAS A BELT SEPARATION. THE SYMPTOMS WERE A SEVERE VIBRATION, AND SEVERE PULL. WE REPLACED TWO OF THE TIRES. 10 MONTHS LATER THE CAR DEVELOPED EXACTLY THE SAME SYMPTOMS, AND IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT ANOTHER OF THE TIRES HAD A BELT SEPARATION. I REPLACED ALL 4 TIRES WITH ANOTHER BRAND. I CALLED KUMHO TO REPORT THE ISSUE, AS THEY CLEARLY HAD A BAD RUN OF TIRES FOR ME TO HAVE TO OUT OF ONE SET. THE PERSON ANSWERING THE PHONE (WARRANTY DEPARTMENT) INSISTED THAT 'BELT SEPARATIONS ARE COMMON', THAT THE RECENT RECALL WAS A "VOLUNTARY RECALL BECAUSE THE ENGINEERS JUST WANTED TO SEE THE TIRES'. I ASKED TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE IN THEIR SAFETY OR ENGINEERING DEPARTMENTS. SHE SAID "WE DON'T HAVE ANYONE LIKE THAT".

Summary of Complaint

REAR SLIDER DOORS FREEZE SHUT. THERE IS NO WAY TO KNOW THAT THIS PROBLEM IS GOING TO OCCUR UNTIL IT'S ALREADY AN ISSUE. AT THE SAME TIME, THE REAR SLIDER DOOR LATCHING MECHANISM FREEZES IN 'OPEN' POSITION. IF THE DOOR IS ABLE TO BE OPENED AND NOT CLOSED, THE DOOR HAS TO BE TIED SHUT WITH BUNGEES. IF THE DRIVER DOES NOT NOTICE THE OPEN DOOR LIGHT AND THE PASSENGER DOES NOT NOTICE THAT THE DOOR DID NOT CLOSE AND LATCH, THE DOOR WILL SLIDE OPEN WHEN THE CAR IS MOVING. THIS HAPPENED TO MY DRIVER SIDE DOOR IN 2013 AND MY PASSENGER SIDE DOOR ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19TH. THE 2006 MAZDA 5 WAS RECALLED FOR THIS SAME REASON (4306K). *TR

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING MAZDA 5 AND STOPPED FOR TRAFFIC LIGHT AS IT WAS RED. AS THE LIGHT TURNED GREEN, I MOVED MY FOOT FROM BRAKE TO ACCELERATOR PADDLE, THE CAR STARTED GOING IN REVERSE DIRECTION. I IMMEDIATELY APPLIED BRAKES, I TRIED TO ACCELERATE AGAIN AND AGAIN THE CAR WAS GOING IN REVERSE. NO I DID NOT HAVE MY CAR ON REVERSE GEAR, THE CAR WAS ON "D" DRIVE ALL THE TIME. I TURNED OFF THE CAR AND RESTARTED THE CAR AGAIN AND OUT THE CAR ON "D" AND AGAIN THE CAR WENT ON REVERSE. I TRIED THIS PROCESS AGAIN, THIS TIME ALL THE CAR DASHBOARD LIGHTS CAME ON AND CAR DID NOT START. I IMMEDIATELY CALLED 911, ON 5TH JULY (SUNDAY) AROUND 3:00PM. MY CALL DETAILS CAN BE RECEIVED. I TOWED MY CAR TO DEALERSHIP AND THEY ARE SUGGESTING ENGINE FAILURE. THE CAR CAN NO WAY HAVE ENGINE FAILURE. IF IT WAS ENGINE FAILURE HOW CAN THE CAR GO ON REVERSE? I AM THANKFUL TO GOD THAT I DID NOT HIT THE CAR BEHIND I HAD A 4 YEAR OLD CHILD IN MY CAR. THIS IS A SERIOUS ISSUE WITH THIS CAR. I WOULD SUGGEST PEOPLE ARE AWARE OF THIS MAJOR ISSUE AS THIS CAN LEAD TO MAJOR ACCIDENTS. ALSO, I GOT IT SERVICED 3 MONTHS BACK AND NO ISSUE WAS IDENTIFIED. I LIKE MAZDA 5 MINI VAN I HAVE BEEN DRIVING FOR ABOUT 4 YEARS BUT THIS INCIDENT HAS GREAT SETBACK ABOUT MAZDA IN MY MIND. I ALSO HAVE MAZDA CX-7 THAT I AM SO SCARED TO DRIVE. I CAN NEVER IMAGINE THE CAR GOING INTO REVERSE WHILE IN DRIVE MODE. THIS IS LIFE THREATENING DEFECT IN THE CAR. THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU. P.S. THE VEHICLE SPEED WAS BETWEEN 0-5 MPH, THE SPEED WHEN YOU TAKE FOOT OF BRAKE AND PRESS SPEED ACCELERATOR. *TR
