I bought a 2020 Escape. At 2350 miles a tire blew out through the side wall. The dealership insisted I hit a pothole or sharp object, because they said tires NEVER blowout thru the sidewall, so they would not warranty the tire. We purchased the bumper to bumper warranty and were told that it covers everything including oil changes and brake pads. I asked to speak to the owner, who never contacted me. I had to buy a new tire. I did not do it thru the dealership, because of the way the issue was handled. Well guess what! Continental tires DO BLOW OUT THRU THE SIDEWALL.
Here is a article about Continental tires blowing out thru the sidewall and there is a recall. Someone owes me $215. Like that, or an apology will ever happen. After 7 straight Ford vehicles, I am done with Ford after this ordeal.
