Last weekend my son had terrible noises and vibration while driving. He went to a tire shop where they discovered that the lug nuts were loose on the left front wheel. So, the car had been worked on a week before, when a shop did brake work on the back among other things. They say they didn’t remove the front wheels, as the front brakes could be examined through the alloy wheels. So, this seems to leave four possibilities:
- The shop is not being truthful.
- The nuts worked loose over a 9 month period from the tire rotation done last spring, when they maybe were left a little loose.
- Vandalism–it is parked on the street.
Any bets? I am particularly interested in the reasonableness of 1 versus 2…
