Another reason to avoid the stealership (Video evidence)

Well it seems this thread is soon to become epic. Already on jalopnik.com and other sites so I figured I'd post it up here:

The thread: Dealer tech takes my car on a 'test drive', at WOT... And I have video evidence... - Subaru Legacy Forums

It's a lightly modded 2005 Subaru Legacy GT.

I wish this was a joke. I'm sorry this happened to your vehicle.

What ever came of this video? Wish there was an easy way to set something like this up in the ranger just to see what they do when I actually have to drop the truck off to get something worked on.

We "get on it" in some nicer "fast" cars at my work...

But most of the time the owners tell us to rag on them...

One guy with a lightning that I was babying on a test drive, i did brakes on it and he told me to do a burn out in the parking lot.. so I laid it down..

Deff. wouldnt do anything if it had cameras in it though!!

That happened about a year or so ago. Someone took their cobra in to get worked on and a tech ragged the hell out of it. Then was a big enough dumbass to go posting about it on a forum that the car owner was on. He got caught and fired.

thats nothing.. a friends dad took his chevy avalanch to the tech guy lefted there for the weekend cause work didnt got finished by friday...

so he went to dinner with his wife and sees his chevy prked infront of a bar.. he gets down to see were the tech guy is .. when he saw im taking a few drinks he went home and brought the spare key to take his car away....

the tech gy went nuts with the police and everything an called the lo-jack ppl to track it down... when all the police dropped to his house the tech guy just fainted so they had to also call the ambulace cause he hitted his head on the floor........ lol

lucky if that was me the owner i wouldave most certainly killed the m..f..

Pretty stupid to do that to a customer's car, especially because they usually don't wander to far from the dealer after. I can't say that when I worked at the dealer I never did something like this, but I tended to only do it to trade-ins :)
