    Future Edge Replacement

    CD6 is a "flexible" platform and a FWD based platform can built from it. Sharing common platforms reduce costs and increase profits. https://fordauthority.com/fmc/ford-motor-company-platforms/ford-cd6-platform/

    More 2020 Explorer issues...

    You could not be any more wrong about that. I had a set of Continentals on my first new car purchase, a 2006 Ford Fusion, that after 14K miles, were worn down to the tread bars on all four tires. Receipts showing rotations a 5K and 10K and alignment check at 8K. Ford dealer may sell tires but are not a servicing tire dealer per Continental. I contacted Continental and was directed to a "servicing tire dealer" and I was able to get a pro-rated adjustment for my prematurely worn tires that was satisfactory to me and kept me a satisfied Continental tire buyer.

    Many years ago..I was the manager of a Montgomery Ward Auto Express. MW sent me to the Michelin tire plant in South Carolina for tire training. I learned many things about tires and what you had was known as in "impact/pinch break" to the inner rubber liner of the tire casing. it is caused by many things, chiefly curb strikes but also potholes too that were not enough to make the tire fail immediately but caused a small break in the liner as the rubber was pinched between the rim edge and the hard surface you just hit. A person so "vehiculary afflicted" would get out of the car, look at the tire and be thankful that the tire was not shredded. The problem is that once the pinch break was created, air would begin to leak through it to the outer casing of the tire and cause the slight budge (also called an egg bubble) in the sidewall. The leaking process would take 1-2 months of driving to create the bulge in the sidewall and typically, the car owner simply forgot that they hit the curb/pothole and want to claim a defective tire. PS: The last place you would take a tire for defect/warranty inspection is the car dealer where you bought the car. You should contact the tire manufacturer and ask them where (tire retailer/service center) you should bring the tire to for inspection. The old story goes that car manufacturers want three things in a tire for their cars..they want them black, round, and cheap and the first two don't really count.

    '19 Year End Sale Totals

    The 45K number was an MSRP estimate...did you pay MSRP for your V8 Grand Cherokee?? Of course you didn't...discounts would invariably be had for the "tough Escape" too...

    So, the comment below is inaccurate....thank you for the clarification. I get it now...the '18 was your first turbocharged vehicle purchased.
