    Did he buy it new?
    And when you say been in the shop are you refering to the dealer?

    I would have your father call the Service Manager and explain the issue and tell him it has already been in multiple times with NO resolve.
    If he won't take care of him and adress the issue go to another dealer and do the same with there Service Manager.
    He needs to bypass the service writer completely.
    If there is ANY rattling like you say there is something wrong.
    It has the 18"s on it?

    17"s are the base wheels.
    Glad he got it fixed.
