12 month old limited , dead gearbox

My dad rang me today day , whilst I was at jeep dealer getting my trailhawk temp probe fixed , and says " well here I am 100kms from home And well that service I got done for the recall? The wire harness is faulty and they rotated my wheels and forgot the tighten the nuts on one of them, now the rim is ruined , and three nuts of sheeted off !! Great jeep dealers in Canberra ! "

The bloody jeep could have rolled and killed my parents due to the total incompetence of the dealer !

and now more...

FCA (australia) rang my dad (after I got into contact with them directly), are picking up my Dads Limited, getting it to Canberra, getting him a hire car, and getting it fixed and getting it back to him. One rim is totally ruined, so they will be replacing that.

The total luck of that wheel not comming off, and the Jeep rolling, and them rolling down a cliff face... I am amazed at the incompetance of this one !

Glad that it wasn't worse than it could have been.

I remember when I was in High School Automotive Class (1973), one of the teacher's wanted her tires rotated, so it was given to another student to do. Same thing, he forgot to tighten one of the wheels and by the time the teacher realized something was wrong, each of the 5 holes in the rim had been elongated to where they were almost touching each other. Fortunately, she found this out right before jumping on the freeway. It would have been real bad if she did...
