You say not to use the factory jack points as they are not reliable. Is this in fact correct? How can the factory indicate this for a jack point if they are not reliable. Is sounds really, really dangerous. On the other hand, I don't like the idea of using jack points other than recommended by the factory. I am confused what to use.
