    Default My local Dealer are a waste of time

    Popped in to my local dealer this morning to talk to them about my Goodyear NCT 5's being split across the width of the tread. My car's a 06 signum.
    He came back with a document saying this is only a problem on tyre's made in week 1 to week 24 2005 and it was for split's in side walls not across the tread. He told me he was going to speak to the warranty guy and see what he say's. I dont expect a call from them it just seamed like i was wasteing their time.
    My tyre's were manufactured in week 51 of 2005.
    So now i'm at a loss at what to do.

    Well balls to to VX i just called Goodyear HQ and they siad yes they are a known problem. He advised me to go to a Hi Q garage and get 3 new tyre's and they wil send the problem tyre's to Goodyear for inspection and they will reimburse me the amount they are valued at due to the ammount of tread. 480 quid for 3 tyre's OMG. Lets see how much they say my 12k miles tyre's are worth.

    I would say they would suggest 12K was about the lifetime of the tyres. Unless they apportion the amount of legal tread left to the amount of life left in them?

    Well all sorted. 2 out of the 3 had major split's across the width of the tread. 3rd one had just started. They are sending them to Goodyear for the inspection. Manager at the garage said they have had over 150 tyre's off the police vectra's in 3 month's.
    He also said what VX told me about them date's is wrong. He said all Slovenian made goodyear's in 05 have had the same issue.
    It's not like VX to tell porkies is it.

    Oh well at least someone was in the mood to be honest about it all, shame it wasn't the dealer though.

    Shan, I got 4 Turanzas the other week from Kwik Fit for £300 all in if this helps at all.

    All the PSNI Vectras have recently had their NCT5 taken off and replaced by Goodyear Excellence or Dunlop SP9000. I suspect there were problems with the NCT5 in service.
