 I removed the rear bumper cover from the car to install a trailer hitch. three of the four nuts were not tightened on the right side of the steel bumper cross member. the nuts were loosely started onto the studs. the nuts are located in an area that cannot be inspected without disassembling the rear of the car. i believe this is a serious safety issue as it affects crash crumple zone integrity and protection for the rear facing jump seats in this vehicle. there was no accident and i do no believe there is a design problem. however, there is an assembly quality control issue. *tr
