Continental issues tyre recall in the US

German tyre maker Continetal has issued a voluntary recall program involving approximately 3,800 passenger vehicle tyres in the US. The recall covers Continental ContiProContact P205/65 R15 95T XL (extra load) tyres manufactured in February 2015. According to Continental, the faulty tyres were sold only in the replacement market.

In its official statement, Continental has said the aforementioned tyres may experience tread separation. While Continental has not received any reports of accident or injury resulting from this condition, it seems the tyre maker has observed discrepancies in the functioning of the tyre during internal quality tests/audits.

The faulty or recalled tyres can be identified with the DOT code – VY UR 471B 0615, suggesting only the tyres manufactured during the Week 6 of 2015 are affected from the recall.

After inspecting the situation, Continental notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the US about the fault in tyres on July 7, 2015. Further, the company is also in touch with its tyre distributors and dealers to identify consumers who have purchased affected tires. Owners having tyres from the faulty batch will be notified immediately and the faulty tyres will be replaced free of cost.

Continental will also be providing assistance to its customers on the company’s official website where consumers will be able to identify affected tyres.
