But, safety data reviewed by CBS News...does NOT support the suggestion that Ford SUVs are more prone to rollovers than other sport utility vehicles. It is true that "2 door Ford Explorers" have a HIGH rollover fatality rate "more than twice" that of comparable mid size cars. But, the larger "4 door Explorers" have "one of the LOWEST rollover fatality rates" among ALL SUVs. JACQUES NASSER, FORD CEO: This is a Firestone tire issue, not a vehicle issue." Ford CEO Jacques Nasser told Congress... Explorers fitted with GOODYEAR tires...have experienced no tire failures. There are almost three million Goodyear tires on Ford Explorers that have not had, as far as we know, a tread separation problem." At the same time new "confidential" documents... obtained by CBS News... reveal that Firestone knew LAST YEAR its tire problem was getting much worse.
