Our 18 month old Continental tires have had 2 of the 4 tire sensors replaced. this has cost us over a $100 each to be replaced. Will never buy their tires again. The actual tires seem to be good no problems. Has anyone else had this experience?
Within the past week, I've experienced two (2) blowouts while operating my 2017 A6 on the freeway(s): The first (1st) caused collision damage from the force of the tire literally exploding (guess who's stuck paying for the deductible). The second (2nd) occurred (three (3) days later) while I was doing the speed limit on I-696 in the middle of the day with clear skies and just out of nowhere, I hear a loud pop!
I contacted the dealership (Audi of Rochester Hills) to convey the aforementioned, their Service Center Manager stated that they recommend either Michelin or Pirelli tires: Then why are you selling vehicles off the lot with Continental tires?! Outside of leaving my comments on this site, I'll also be contacting the BBB in addition to an Attorney. I am beyond grateful that no one was injured during either incident, however, I'm certain that this company has been made aware of their piss poor products! If I could give zero (0) stars, I would have: Please stay safe everyone and stay away from Continental tires!
When exiting the off ramp from the freeway my tire exploded. Very scary moment for me. My 2013 Buick Verano only has 46,000 miles on it. The whole outside of the tire is shredded. After googling the problem I found others that had the same problem with Continental tires. Needless to say I will replace all 4 tires with a more one. Being a senior I felt my life was in danger if it would’ve happened going 65 mph.
Purchased a new 2019 Ford F-450 Limited with 19.5” Continental tires from factory. At only 18,500 miles the tires are worn out on the inside and outside edges. There are also chunks of the tires coming off. Vehicle serviced at Ford and there was never a mention of the tires wearing out. Noticed tires having issues and returned to Ford Country in Las Vegas where I was told that it was my fault they were wearing out. Was referred to third party tire company who informed me that they constantly replace these tires on F-450’s. These are on the front of this F-450 which if they would have failed could have resulted in serious injury or death!
Cost to replace front tires with only 18,500 miles to ensure my safety and the safety of others around me on the road was almost $950 at my expense! How is it that Continental Tires and the Ford Motor Company are allowed to risk the safety and lives of people? If anyone is interested in more information, I have pictures that prove this!
2020 AMG, Continental Run Flat tires are totally unsafe,10,000 miles and sidewall bubbles appear, one month later rear tires blows. I have lost confidence driving this car in fear of the tires. Complained to Mercedes Benz and they offered to pay half the price of one tire. Continental Tires are unsafe, I will be changing all 4 tires ASAP!! Based upon other reviews this seems to be a well known problem!!!!
I purchased a 2019 Chevy Blazer and unfortunately it came with Continental cross contact tires.. Flat at 20000 miles... Split inner sidewall front right. Had to buy new tire at $208.00. WILL NEVER BUY AGAIN!!! And telling Chev Corp to discontinue the brand or they should pay... IT'S BS!!
I purchased a set of Continental winter tires in Dec.2019. While product review was good, my purchase was solidified based on their promotion of a Rebate Incentive. Almost 5 months later (mid-April 2020), I have since had the winter tires removed and yet still no rebate received from the company. Seems like a scam to me. I've tried contacting them; get the "so sorry, it takes time"; then they tell me they sent the rebate 6 weeks ago, (which I have still not received) but they will re-send; so I will have to wait another 4-6 weeks. Completely unacceptable. Regardless of how many redemptions they say they have had, no rebate should take this long to process. Very poor customer service in my books.
I purchased the Pure Contacts for my Chrysler 300. I didnt expect to get 80k out of them but 40k was a bit ridiculous. I would strongly recommend a more reasonably price 40k tire and save yourself $500 bucks. I'm truly disappointed in these tires.
I just bought a 2019 Subaru Impreza last year in March and I got brand new continental tires on my car. Well a few days ago I travel to Odessa only 30 mins away. Before I leave town I check my car just to make sure everything is fine. Well I get to Odessa and I stop to get gas I see a bubble on the side of my tire on the front passenger side. It wasn’t there only a few hours ago. These tires are only a year old and I have them check with every oil change to make sure there is no nails or anything in them. It’s ridiculous these tires only got 13K on them the tread is still good on them and I make sure to avoid potholes and curbs. Continental needs to check their tires for defects cause a year old tired shouldn’t be getting bubbles.
We were on HWY 35 leaving Killeen, TX. headed to Tulsa, OK. Going 80 mph, my check tire light came on. There was nowhere to get off. A couple of minutes later we heard a boom sound and I managed to slow down and pulled to the right side. My sons (40 & 36) had to remove all our luggage. They got busy changing the tire. I called 911 because the semi trucks are not moving to the left. So I get out and walk quite a distance behind our car to direct traffic. My younger son is watching out for his brother. This was a thirty minute ordeal. I was yelling (they can read my lips) and motioning for everyone to move over. When these trucks are zooming by going 80 and 90 mph, it's scary. I was wearing a red shirt. I am a mom. My protective mode went on full force. This should NOT have happened. By the way, 911 never showed up.
