Recall Overview

Harald S. from Alpharetta, GA reports:

State where accident took place: Greenville, SC

DOT Tire Number: W2

Make of Vehicle: 2000 Ford Explorer

Date of Accident.: 10-7-00

I was in the left lane of I-85 when the car started to act strange (left front vibrate/shimmy). I put my turn signal on to move to the right and get off the highway when it veered to the right and I lost control.

I wound up rolling the Explorer over and hitting a tree. I believe the vehicle is totaled. I have about 10 stitches in my elbow, but walked away from it.

I am very lucky, the seatbelt and airbags saved my life.
