Unhappy Tire Blow out.

Had my driver's side front tire blow out in Fort Wayne IN going to the Indy 500 on my 1994 coach. Ended up in the median with major undercarriage damage. Not drivable so I had it towed to Newell in OK. Had them do all repairs plus some extras. I was truly disappointed when I got the coach back. Cracked front windshield, 2 of the 3 A/C's were inoperable. The same ones they worked on from the undercarriage damage. Had them put a new radio in and that did not work either. They never aimed the head lamps that were ripped off either. Only thing the service department says it was all working there.

That's a big disappointment! Normally, they are pretty good. I have a 94 also and live on Coldwater lake, just off of I-69 at the 3 mile marker if you're ever in the area. In the process of refurbishing ours.

how fast were you travelling when the tire blew? It sounds like the damage was HUGE!

I agree with Larry, That a HUGE disappointment. Newell Service is usually top notch all the way. Who was your service tech?
