Over tightened screws?

Over tightened screws in a satellite seems a bit naff. Last year I found the bolts on my car's front wheels were not torqued properly (or at all) after an MoT and a replace of tyres. I nearly reached for a lawyer instead of a wrench, when I eventually traced the knocking noise on deceleration. Thankfully wifey's car didn't end up on its nose first or worse.

How the hell can something as basic as torque be screwed up on something so expensive and destined to be rather remote?
