#14 - Tire problem of the 2004 Ford Expedition
The VIN of this Expedition is 1FMPU16W74_. In may 2004 I purchased a 2004 Ford Expedition XLT 4x4 from crossroads Ford in cary nc. The vehicle odometer reading was 10 miles. The day after the purchase I returned the vehicle and three of the original continental tires were replaced due to excessive road force. N August 2004 I brought the Expedition back to x-rds Ford for service. A fourth continental tire was replaced due to excessive road force. I took the Expedition to perry bros. In smithfield nc for service at 11000 miles in November 2004. Perry bros. Told me that two of the continental tires were worn out. I took the Expedition back to x-rds Ford as soon as possible and they found that all four of the second set of continental tires showed excessive and unusual tread wear. Crossroads Ford offered me a third set of continental tires which I declined. I was charged $273 to have a set of michelin tires put on. I believe that there is some defect in either the continental tire or Ford Expedition or incompatibility arising therein that is causing this vehicle/tire combination to be dangerous. I understand that people were killed and injured by this same problem about four years ago. I feel that my family and I were placed in jeopardy by Ford and its agent, crossroads Ford.

All four of the tires in my Ford Expedition lose 4 pounds of air every week. There is some kind of defect any the dealership isn't fixing the vehicle. I was told by Ford that a engineer looked at me vehicle on the 7th visit and this never occurred. I have been lied to by Ford and my vehicle still has not been fixed even though it is under warranty.

#23 - Tire problem of the 2003 Ford Expedition
The car is a 2003 Ford Expedition. 2003 Expedition shakes while traveling, with the shake/vibration increasing as speed increases, and becomes severe. Have had to dealership 3 times now, but continues. In searching online, this is a common issue, and appears to be linked to the continental tires. Between the shake in the vehicle and unknown what is occurring to tires as the vehicle travels and shakes, I would think there is a risk of damage to the tires that could result in injury to the occupants. Ford seems to be shirking the issue, which seems strange to me based on the issues they experienced with tires and the explorer. This problem occurred on Dec. 19, 2003.
