Rear cargo tie-downs both broken.

2014 JGC Overland.

Both of my rear cargo tie-downs are bent/broken with minimal usage of the cargo net.

Anyone else with similar issue and/or experience asking to have it fixed under warranty?

Re: Rear cargo tie-downs both broken.

The rear cargo tie down points are fixed into the plastic spare tyre surround - each one by a single 10# self tapping screw.
Certainly not suitable for securing anything substantial.
If you were making a claim to an Australian dealer i think it would be difficult to mount an argument - pretty much impossible to say what weight was fixed and how it was restrained when the damage occurred.
Good luck
John
