I haven't been on here in a while b/c ownership has been pleasantly unremarkable. But thought I'd share my one bad experience I'd had recently. A few months ago, I had a blowout on the interstate. When I went to change the tire, the lug bolts just spun around like they were stripped. I realized they were just little caps over the actual bolt. But I had no way to "make" them work and ended up calling roadside assistance. When the guy got there, he said these caps are flimsy and when they get overtorqued, they no longer properly contact the underlying bolt and won't let you remove them. He ended up having to basically pry the caps off to get to the underlying bolt in order to change the tire. Anyone notice this or have an experience like this?
