Camaro owner catches mechanics at dealership abusing his car


quote:

One South Carolina man was worried enough that when he took his 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS in for service at a Chevy dealer, he hid a voice recorder in the car. He was right to be worried: The recorder caught mechanics doing burnouts and discussing how to make the owner pay for a ruined clutch the car didn't have before coming in. Now the Internet Justice League has taken the wheel.

This time, the voice recorder hidden in the door pocket catches employees doing several burnouts and hard launches in the Camaro; Smith later says the techs drove it harder in 20 minutes than he had in three years. Once back in the shop, the mechanics realize the Camaro's clutch has been fried, and come up with a plan to blame the damage on Smith, saying to "write it up as him buying a (expletive) clutch," while saying another part failed under warranty so that General Motors would pay for its replacement.

I know several mechanics from a couple different stealerships and this isn't uncommon at all. Well except for the getting caught part.

Like lawyers, a good one is gold.

A lot more good ones than bad ones.

Bunch of uneducated dirt balls. I've started doing any repair I can that doesn't require a lift or special tools which is really a lot shite...too bad it's not enough to avoid them all together

Yes finding a good one means they will get my business forever.

Everytime i go somewhere new, even for an oil change for example they say o this and that looks pretty old I'd reccomend replacing it now while youre here so you dont have trouble down the road

Mechanics are easier to find than front-end men.

Good front-end guys are real, real tough to find.

Some of these knuckleheads don't know what a radial pull is and will try to work around it.
