when I got in my accident two months ago; I just got my car back and it just occured to me that the tow truck driver didn't use a flat bed. I kind of knew that was not right, but after the accident that was the last thing on my mind, I was....dazed kind of. I am going to mention it to the place that fixed my car; I think the tow truck driver works for the same shop, so that presents kind of a problem since the shop then has a reason to lie.
I have a friend who is a UTI graduate who works as a Jaguar mechanic that I may look at it at his shop on the lift, see if he can see anything, probably have him change the diff. fluid too.
It was only towed probably less than four miles, so that is good, but it still pisses me off that the ignorant tow truck driver that tows cars, FOR A LIVING, doesn't know better.
It is a lease so I am not too worried about it, they don't even know the accident happened, but I still want to make sure she is ok for the next year and a half.
I am just wondering, how you all think it should be handled. I am thinking I will mention it to the mechanic, give him a chance to get his word, and go from there. There is also a warranty on the work, but I wonder how broad it is.
They changed some rear quarter panel cosmetics, a strut and then this back piece that was part of the suspension; when you looked at the car on the lift it kind of stretched from one side of the frame to the other, side to side, wheel to wheel, and that was replaced because he said it wouldn't go into alignment; anyone have any idea what that part may be?? There was probably other stuff as well but that was the major replacements.
