Luckily he only had it lifted up about a foot or two, I was standing on the opposite side l, heard a BOOM, looked over and the left rear corner had dropped to the ground. He hadn’t even lifted it up enough to place on the first lock.

It’s still possible that the tech may have exceeded the capacity of the lift without realizing before it was too late. This Sprinter van was loaded down pretty heavy!

Yeah warranty won’t cover this. The Chrysler regional rep was in the store when this came through. The VIN is now flagged for power train restriction.

...young kid, mid 20's owns the car. We suspect he didn’t know how to drive it properly. Transmission was also shot as well. This is off of a 2019 Vw Jetta 1.4L. ...3000 miles on it.

Wrecker motor installed before current owner purchased it. ‘10 Forester 2.5. Came in for external leaking, found coolant dripping from heads. Oil too from a few spots.
I pulled the motor to do it right. On a stand so I could do the oil pan too. Walked by and noticed red down the thermostat housing. Found this.
