Another Case Of A Dealership Employee Taking A Customer’s Car For A Joyride
November 13th, 2018
We’ve seen it before but you would think with all the technology and dash cams, dealership employees would get the hint: stop taking customer’s vehicles for joy rides. Jalopnik reports that Jon Martin took his 2016 Chevy Corvette into a Michigan dealership for an airbag recall. To be clear, this problem was fixed solely by a software update and there was no mechanical work done at all. It should also be noted this car has a “Valet Mode” which records out the front dash. You can watch as the employee takes the Z06 out and at one-point hits 94 MPH in a 45 MPH zone. Martin reached out to the local police department about citing the driver as an unauthorized user of the vehicle but no files were charged. How upset would you be?
