This is terrible... Dealers mistreating your car..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=bE4Dh_82kMM


Found this video on youtube of a guy who brought his 2010 Camaro in for a few little complaints. He hid a recording device and finds out that they're beating the crap out of his car... I fear for my car when it's in for service.

Just read this. Whats better is the absolute flaming destruction of the dealerships FaceBook page!

I would be half tempted to burn the place down after that! lol

The funny thing is the dealership's name: Best Chevrolet-Kia in Easley, S.C.

What a joke.

Their facebook page is pretty entertaining right now: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Best-C...740127?fref=ts

I've gotten my car back with gum on the pedals, broken clips on the cowl, and they scratched my Stett intake piping...

That Camaro story was on Jalopnik. I say this counts as a repost and should be moved to the off-topic section. OP, /facepalm

Reminds me of a story of my buddies.

Bill Jacobs of BMW in IL stole my buddies Subs/amps one time for a simple car wash. No biggie he had an invoice and they gave him a check.

Another occasion he has a V1 stolen from his car. Car wash story again and they replaced it.

He took the car in for service and he caught the tech racing my buddies younger brother in his m3. He burned out and did some reckless things. Dealers suck. He yelled at him so much but they couldn't really do anything it was his word against the techs.

This is their old location and the new one has been doing so much better.

Sound recorders can do video?

jk.



Screw this dealer. Call me ocd, but I write down the mileage of my car when I take it for service, anywhere.

The owner illegally taped someone, but it ocurred in his car. This is a privacy v. property rights case. Interesting to see how this plays out.

When i got my car back last week (they had it month waiting for parts from the mother-land) 2 of my center caps were ruined (chemical reaction of some sort) and i have a dime sized ding on the edge of one front wheel. When i mentioned it they just shrugged it off, I'm sure glad they are just cheap reps.

I read this story...this is bad.
We need 2 things in expensive cars.
1. Valet parking Mode : In this mode the RPM should be controlled and max speed shd be 40-50mph and password protected.
2. Blackbox type data recorder for the time the car is in dealership.
