I made a point of checking the lug nuts on our Outback each time I stopped with a torque wrench. I was surprised how many times one of the nuts was a bit loose. After checking the the first leg of our trip I noticed on our way home that they were all tight. Please do check yours as the manual recomends.

Thanks, that's a good idea. I've read about a couple of instances where trailer's have lost a wheel because of loose lugs. There's that little sticker above the wheels on both sides that warns to check the lug nuts.

Y-Guy...

You seem obsessed with my nuts!


Seriously, I've had some lug nuts loosen a bit as well. I keep a torque wrench in my trailer, but it seems more complicated than it should be to set it. Then again, I'm no Engineer either!

Lisa I had the same thought!

I'm no Engineer either, but I did stay in my Outback last week
