DEARBORN, Mich. (Nov. 27)—Ford Motor Co. is looking at the possibility of offering tire warranties, a spokeswoman for the auto maker said. The car maker is not releasing details beyond that. The program appears to be in addition to two separate initiatives Ford CEO Jacques Nasser has said the auto maker would undertake: to notify the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration immediately of all foreign recalls and customer satisfaction programs and to work with other tire makers, NHTSA and Congress to develop an "early warning system" to detect the first signs of tire defects. General Motors Corp., since 1996, is the only car maker that offers a warranty on its original equipment tires.
