How do I get this fixed?
I bought a 2007 ford ses December of 2006. The tires and shocks went bad at 17,000 miles. We replaced them. We are now at 38,000 miles my 2 rear tires are bald , one has threads coming through. The front tires are bulging on the inside and appear to be toed. The Ford dealership states that this is no longer covered under our warranty after 36,000 miles. I feel like there is something wrong with the alignment and I do not know where to go or what to do.
Try another dealership.
Things like that are typical in Focuses, I have one myself and I had recently replaced my driver side suspsension. The big reason to all your problems is that some of the parts in your car have been made in Japan. And one thing about Japanese companies is that they dont sort out their metal before melting it, so you have various metals in their parts when their manufactured, which can reduce the overall strength of the part. Its possible that your alignment can be affected by your suspension, check your sablizer bar and see if it is mounted correctly. For your suspension system, if it does go bad again, get Duralast brand. I haven't had problems with my car since I got that brand, they're US made and you can grease the suspension system for more lubrication unlike Ford factory parts. In intrest to your tires, I would replace them as soon as possible. The cheapest brand that I can tell you would have to be Falken tires from Discount Tire Co. The next best brand is either Goodyear, Nitto, or Yokohama.
One key to this question is you said the fronts are bulging, check your tire pressure against the door sticker. If it looks toed and you ate up shocks in 17k you likely also have an alignment issue have it checked. Also what brand of tires did you have put on?
