multiple punctured tires by multiple screws... and bent rear trailing arms
Just want some opinion on what could have happened and I must have some real enemies!
Yesterday, when I was heading out for lunch at work, driver side rear tire alarm went off. After I checked tire pressure at a nearby gas station, I found that the tire has no pressure at all. I got run flat tires so I was able to drive with no issues. After filling up the tire again, I went to a nearby dealer right away to see if I could get it fixed. My car is a new car with about 3 months into the lease and I have tire warranty. Unfortunately, the dealer doesn't have the tire in stock and I will have to wait until next Wednesday to get it fix. I needed the car for this weekend so they helped me find another dealer that has the tire. So I booked the appointment and took my car in this morning.
To my surprise, after inspection, both rear tires got multiple screws in them and front tire on the passenger side also has a screw, though the tire is not punctured. Dealer also found that both rear trailing arms were bent. Service manager told me that it seems that somebody jacked up the car by the rear arms and put the screw in. Not sure how this would happened as other than my house and work, I only made short stops here and there in the last few days. I parked in the garage when I am home. Therefore the only possible location that this would happen is at work. I went back to the parking lot where I work and found that there is a security camera pointing to the direction of where I parked on Friday morning. Interestingly, from just the look of it, the camera seems only able to capture the area where the front driver wheel is and there is no screw in that tire at all!
I am going to ask HR to help me check out the camera footage on Tuesday but in the meantime, it is really hard for me to think this could happen at work. I have worked there for 10 years and have not heard anything like this has happened.
So what do you think could happened to the rear arms? Could this be done really fast?
