The damaged vehicle owners could maybe appeal the over turning by citing the service manual section addressing wheel installation and/or replacement. While determining if a "tire rotation" does or does not include torquing lug nuts to some degree certainly a dealership would have or should have access to the service manual. In that regard they failed to properly install the wheel no matter under what circumstances it was removed and re-installed.
I'm not an attorney naturally but how this case ends up will be interesting.
if the car came in with tight lug nuts, then it damn well should have left with tight lug nuts.
"understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of your car, oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of your car, horsepower is how hard your car hits the wall, and torque is how far your car moves the wall."
My jaw hurts after hitting the ground. To think it took $70,000 of Lawyer & Court fees to come to such an assignine conclusion simply suggests a lack of Common Sense the supposed "intelligent" people displayed when passing down such a verdict...regardless of what the Defence presented.
