I took my 2016 car in to the dealership because it was leaking air in two of the tires. They told me I had a nail in each of my tires. They could patch one, but not the other because one of the tires had already been patched in that spot. Nobody in my family had ever patched it, which means they sold me a new car with at least one used tire if not more. Is this common among dealerships? Is there away that I can prove this?
You might be able to have an expert determine the true age of the tire(s), but it may cost you a pretty penny to have that determination made. Plus, considering that this is a 2016 vehicle, I imagine the dealership accused of having sold you used tires will claim that in the two years that you've owned the vehicle, any number of things could have happened, causing this. Finally, the dealership may want to point fingers at the tire shop, claiming they want to simply make more money by claiming a prior patch up. In short: it would likely cost you less to buy new tires than to thoroughly investigate this claim (and possibly hire an attorney.)
