    Anyone else play this game when driving around, and no I dont mean driving around without lug nuts on my Tacoma. I mean looking at other peoples cars and counting their lug nuts to see if they have them all on or in some cases all tightened...

    I dont have any pictures, because most of the time I play this game when driving (stopped at red lights), and WOW there are a ton of cars that are missing atleast one lug nut. I saw a car at my office that was missing 2 out of 5 on one wheel. Saw a car at the grocery store that was missing 1 out of 5 on every single wheel, and out of the other 4 2 on each wheel was clearly not tight, they were sticking out very far! :eek:

    Just find it amusing and unsafe, and even more funny when people have crazy aftermarket wheels and are missing them, or have a brand new (Inifinti, Acura, BMW... etc) and are missing them...

    I had a 5K service done at Toyota of Riverside and unknowingly drove 15 mins on the freeway with 2 out of 6 lug nuts. The dealer ship played it off like it was no big deal :mad::mad:

    Apparently, it was "it was just human error and no damage was done." When they came to deliver the lug nuts an hour later, they could only find chrome ones. I had to wait a week for them to order black ones which I had to drive to the dealership and wait 45 mins to pick up. They sent me out the door without even an apology. Lesson learned; if you want something done right, do it yourself.

    I changed brake pads for a girl once.. Was missing 2 nuts on one wheel... On a 4 lug... I actually took a nut off my car so she would have at least 3...

    My truck was missing one when I got it

    ^She also drove a Toyota with 12mm lugs?

    What's a verbal apology worth? Stupid mistakes like this, call Toyota Corporate and lodge a complaint. You can probably get a free oil change or something more out of it.
