Hi there, looking for some advice. I bought ds4 in August 2019. I have bought 4 tyres from asda tyres and got them fitted in the local garage in February 2020. Once they have replaced them I got in the car and the under inflated tyre light was on(front left). I got back to the fitter and he added some air and told me that the car needs to calibrate itself and drive some distance for it to reset.
When driving home from garage my car was pulling to the left constantly and didnít drive well. When I got home Ive seen there was not much air left so I have used compressor to top it up enough to go back to garage to check it over again. While pumping the air a bubble came up on top of the tyre and it burst. Damaging the side panel, rubber underneath and my hand - as I was trying undo the air hose. The pressure gauge was showing 1 and was still in red zone. I have contacted local tyre centre and they have sent the mobile van and replaced the tyre. While changing the tyre the fitter seen there was one nut wheel missing. I went to the garage next day and the manager inspected the car further, could not find any nail in the tyre or damage apart from the blow. Ive contacted asda tyres and they told me to send form and that the tyre will be investiagted. After a lot of chasing I have found out the tyre was never sent and they claim the damage to the car couldnt happen by the tyre blow. Nobody wants to take responsibility and the cost to repair would be around 500. Any advice from you what I could do?
I'm assuing you're in the UK, since you're talking about Asda.
