While Nexen tires have been the subject of some consumer complaints, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data, there are no recorded recalls. The following takes a look at each of the three tire lines about which consumers issued complaints to the NHTSA, and what your options are if involved in an accident caused by a tire defect.
Nexen N5000 Complaints
The most recent complaint regarding the Nexen N5000 tires came in September 2014. According to the complaint, the passenger side tire developed bubbles on the sidewall. Other drivers experienced rear tire blowouts, bubbles on front tires, and loss of air pressure.
Nexen Roadian HP Complaints
The Nexen Roadian HP also had a complaint filed against it. In October 2014, a consumer filed a complaint with the NHTSA, stating that two of the six tires on his RV “developed ridges down the center of the tire and came apart.”
Nexen CP671 Complaints
Consumers filed five complaints with the NHTSA regarding the Nexen CP671 tire line. These complaints involved concerns of low tire pressure warnings, blistering of the tire leading to the eventual loss of air, front tire separation, sidewall fractures, and bubbles on the surfaces of the tires.
NHTSA & Manufacturer Have Not Issued Recalls
The NHTSA is responsible for issuing and publishing recall and investigation information regarding dangerous tires. Currently, there is no recall regarding Nexen tires.
But even though the NHTSA has not found reason to issue a recall, if a Nexen tire was defective, caused an accident, and you suffered injuries because of it, you may hold the manufacturer liable. You must prove that the tire was defective and caused your accident. You must also thoroughly demonstrate the damages you suffered.
