Driving down interstate going approximately 65 mph when we felt a strong vibration coming from the rear of the automobile, as my husband let off the gas the back passenger tire lost all pressure and the SUV began to swerve, my husband being very experienced allowed the car to slow to about 40 mph before hitting the brakes keeping control of the car. Vehicle was 08 Expedition with approx. 1000 miles on it, we had owned it for less than a month. We changed the tire, which had a hole all the way through which caused immediate dispersion of air from tire. The hole was a perfect circle, all the way through the tire as if it had been plugged. We took the tire back to the dealership, they accused us of hitting something. There was no object inside the tire that had been fully penetrated, and as I stated before the hole was a perfect circle.
