Ford representatives have met with INDECU, the Venezuela consumer agency. Ford has discussed with INDECU and proposed that INDECU form an independent committee to conduct a technical evaluation of the tires made by Firestone Venezuela and the Explorer made by Ford Venezuela. We have delivered to INDECU a number of samples of tire sections in both the 15" and 16" sizes clearly showing early evidence of tread separation in the Venezuelan-manufactured Firestone tires. These tire samples would be provided to the independent technical committee for its evaluation.
