Ladybug46 from WA signing in
Greetings all. Purchased my Silver Touring Clarity March 2018. The car now has 11,679 miles.
Have been following the Clarity Boards with great interest and am grateful for your collective questions and advice. Just returned from a road trip to Glacier National Park. The Clarity performed magnificently, especially going over mountains! On the advice here, I carried a spare tire, just in case; fortunately, did not need it there, but did a week later returning from an appointment in Seattle.
Low Tire Pressure and Blow Out
The left rear tire was the one affected. I pulled over on the 520 bridge, called AAA and was towed to Discount Tires. Debated overnight whether to buy four (4) new tires, the bottom line cost of $800 deterred me. I talked to my sales person and asked if I bought a new Michelin tire (that was what was on the Clarity), would he honor the warranty against defects and road hazards for all the tires. He did one better. For $103, I purchased the warranty for all 4 tires and he threw in the Michelin tire for free. Hats off to Discount Tires. New tire is now on; all tires are now covered by Discount Tire.
If you are the least bit concerned about your tires go to a place like Discount Tires: (1) purchase the warranty and (2) buy a spare I had mine put on a rim because it was better for me.
Again, thanks to all for your wisdom and advice!
