ROFL they actually have the longest conversations about going to get the ice cream...in a customer vehicle. What idiots :facepalm:

However I don't get how the turn into the stealership allegedly caused a "cracked rim" either. That can't possibly true unless MB makes their wheels out of cheese, lol. Either a harder impact happened somehow (but it's all recorded so doubtful) or that wasn't caused by the stealer.

I rather the tech stop for ice cream during a test drive than beat on my car (which they didnt do)

Also, bs on the mess that he accused the techs made. The whole area is filthy already. they prob got a drink tray for the frosty - why would they take them out and put it in the holder? even if they didnt, theyre covered with a drink lid and a frosty is almost solid, no way it would spill like that.

I think the owner is just a rich dbag that got butthurt for the techs talking shit about him

I honestly sometimes wonder when I bring my car in for an oil change if they actually do it or if they just leave it there for an hour and tell me it's ready,

And put the car up for 11 minutes and never did any work that they suppose to and charged 1.5 hrs for the work that was never done.
The total service time is 1hr and 30mins. You did see the timestamps of coming in and out? The car was running for 11mins only, cameras dont record in OFF.

Can I borrow your car? I have a craving for a burrito...
No mechanic has ever taken your car for a test drive. Ever.

Not sure what people expect happens in the shop? This is pretty normal, they drove within the speed limit the whole time. The guy claiming they bent his rim is total BS, they never hit any curb.

Yes, after an oil change and that was the last time I went to that particular dealership.

happens at all dealerships. Nothing surprising at all. At least those monkeys did not crash the car and drove it in the vicinity of the dealership and not wander off to Square One per se.
You do realize that thousand's of cars are serviced every day at New Car Dealerships and if this happened as frequently as you are suggesting there would thousand's of videos like this one.
You cant paint all the dealerships with the same brush just like in any other business there are good apples and bad apples.

Other than not completing the work they were paid to perform (I didn't read the story, so not sure if that's the case or not), I don't really see an issue. The area around those cup holders is already dirty. I find it hard to believe the cup holders were spotless but the rest of the area was filthy. The guys didn't beat on the car whatsoever. They took it for a short drive and stopped for ice cream. Not a big deal, unless a test drive wouldn't have been required at all as part of the service. In that case, I would want to know why they were driving my car when it wasn't required. I saw absolutely no evidence of them hitting anything that would have caused damage to a rim.

If that was my truck they were driving, I wouldn't think twice about it. Yeah, the conversation wasn't flattering to the owner, but they believed they were having a private conversation. People say things all the time in private that they wouldn't want others to hear. I wouldn't hold that against them.
