Not sure if this should be a complaint just yet but wanted to provide a watch out perhaps. Our Ascent is 6 weeks new and has around 1900 miles on it. Wife driving today as low speed when low tire pressure warning came on. She drove on a little way to a safe area and as she stopped noticed smoke from the rear. Got out to see a blown out sidewall in the rear tire (about 10 inches). Early in our investigation and will engage dealership but certainly a manufacturing defect is in my mind. Presuming they are the Falken tires. Hopefully a one-off situation and no one was hurt but don't want anyone else to be hurt either. If anyone has had a similar experience, please respond with details. Thanks all - glad to be a new member.
