Vince purchased a new Honda Accord from Capital Honda, his local Honda dealer. Standard equipment on the Accord included a set of top-of-the-line tires from Top Tire, Inc. However, Vince was able to save $400 on the purchase price by allowing Capital to substitute a lower priced discount tire, manufactured by Cheap but Good Tires. Unbeknownst to Vince and Capital Honda, Cheap but Good Tires had negligently designed the tires, with the result that a tire would occasionally blow out when the car was traveling at a high rate of speed in hot weather. On August 15th, Vince was traveling 90 m.p.h. in a 65 m.p.h. zone. A tire exploded, resulting in damage to the car and injury to Vince.
If Vince sues Capital on a theory of strict liability, is he likely to prevail?
