Nexen Tires are Failing Consumers, Causing Accidents
Posted on May 28, 2015 | Categorized: Tire Defects
While customers have been complaining about Nexen Tires, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) still hasn’t issued a recall on these dangerous tires. Nexen manufacturers several types of tires, the Nexen CP671(2), the Nexen N5000, and the Nexen Roadian HP. As of May 23, 2015, twelve complaints to the NHTSA have been filed regarding Nexen tires, as they are causing accidents that could otherwise be prevented.
What Drivers Using Nexen Tires are Complaining About
Drivers using any of the tires made by Nexen are filing complaints with the NHTSA, and some of the complaints include:
- Nexen tire blowouts with no apparent cause.
- Nexen tire failure after less than 30,000 miles of use.
- Bubbles forming on the side of Nexen tires, causing tire instability.
- Lack of response from Nexen when reporting defective tires.
- Nexen tires where the tread simply comes apart and the tire fails.
- Cracks in the Nexen tire sidewall with minimal use of the tire.
There have been no investigations on the safety of Nexen tires at this time conducted by the NHTSA, but it is apparent that these tires are failing while drivers are on the road. The potential for an injury lawsuit is high if you have been injured in a car accident because of faulty Nexen tires.
