firestone stores at 11865 w 95 overland park ks 66214 and one at 7575 wornall rd kansas city mo 64114 are falsifying dot registration on over 90% of tires sold. process used is that a fictitious number that has the right series of characters is used on all tire invoices regardless of size or type. this is also entered into the computer which accepts the fictitious number as long as the character string is long enough. the number is given to new hires as it was me when i started and when i reported this to superior i was fired. over a period of 1 month over 700 tires were sold in this fashion and no other employee saw the problem with the policy other than to say they did not want to lose their job. *nm

Ford Focus 2001
Ford Motor Company
Safety incident date:
Aug 22, 2007
Location:
Louisville, KY

bought new in '01 ford focus. noticed right off brakes would make a grinding noise and squeak. tires were worn real bad on inside on one front size since we bought it. repeated alignments with no improvement. still experience this problem. started experiencing problems with it missing during acceleration. check engine light came on in february 2005 and took it to the dealership. they replaced sensors that had recall,was recall code p0401. engine light stayed on. they said that we were using gas that was dirty and waiting too late to put gas into the car and that was why it was stalling. we paid $272.98 for them to replace this whole section that had to do with the fuel being filtered. car loses power and stutters going around curves with even over a half a tank of gas. stalling to the point we must pull over into the emergency lane afraid of accident! i own car i bought brand new and it jerks and sputters like some piece of crap from jd byrider! everytime we start the car you smell oil burning for15 minutes afterwards. had it checked no leaks or anything could be found. april of 2005 noticed when the car idled at a traffic light the thermostat would show shoot up showing it was running hot! took it in to the dealership and they found anti-freeze leaking. was told the thermostat housing and thermostat had to be replaced. retested it and was told problem solved. our bill was $375.00. this was first brand new car and was taken well care of, it only has around 78,000 miles on the odometer. i was told there was a silent recall on these for the engine problems and they were being fixed for no cost to the owner. we were not notified of a recall and paid for all of this out of pocket .car is paid off now and cannot enjoy having a paid off car with low mileage because we are scared to drive it and bought a new car that was safe to drive around with our kids! time goes on and it is getting worse. sometimes not wanting to start at all! engine still stalls despite all these repairs. *tr
