Description

CBS News reports on "new dimensions of the Firestone Tire/Ford fiasco, as the first lawsuits were heard in court and new allegations involving other Firestone tires surfaced." The series exposes legal tricks Firestone used to delay trials and frustrate victims, and sheds light on some recently discovered problems with Firestone rescue vehicle tires. The major finding is that there is a pattern of cover-ups in regard to the tire blowouts both in Firestone and Ford. The investigative team has conducted off-the-record interviews with Firestone employees who confirm information on continuing flaws in production.
