A tire failure is always potentially dangerous, even when the vehicle is a stroller. That’s why Kolcraft is recalling more than 96,000 Jeep Liberty strollers. The tires on these three-wheeled strollers have inner tubes that can rupture and cause the wheel rim to fracture and fly off as a projectile.
At least 18 people have been injured by these tire blow-outs – including two children standing near the strollers – according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The CPSC said there have been at least 39 reports of inner tube ruptures. In most cases, this happened when the tires were being inflated.
Yikes! This has been a bad week for the 'Jeep' brand! Anyone have this stroller?
