Yup they indicated that’s what they are going to be doing. Just thinking about it, I think there may even be criminal liability here if there’s a fire resulting from a faulty install, now that they (meaning the dealer) are aware. Wild stuff.
Definitely criminal liability for the installers. Not sure about the dealer but it is possible
