Now, I know what your thinking ; this just looks like a typical safety recall........ What am I so amused about.....

Well, so I don't spoil the effect: page one describes "Mispositioned" jack etc. etc. ......
page two shows some pictures , no big deal here......
page THREE , #2 and #3 , yes you read correctly...........!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Notice how there is no mention of the "P" word until pg. 3 of 5. I must admit, I thought of BMW when I saw this, but I don't think even they had the guts to try this!

GM "spare tire" and accessories meeting:

GM: really , a plastic jack ?

Designer: sure no problem boss, the kids who purchase these vehicles will never use it ; there is no App available to change a flat tire!

GM: Perfect!

What are we coming to, though, where the product recall, issued to and executed by dealership ‘technicians’ only - has step-by-step instructions on how to locate, identify and remove the jack…

As a mere layman, without the extensive training of a technician, in fact without even seeing the vehicle, I think I’d feel competent to carry out the task.
