Who Should Pay For This Guy’s Car Damage, Him Or The Dealership?



When you take your car to the shop, the last thing you expect is to get it back worse then you left it. But when Vince Hansen took his pride and joy, an Audi S4, to Titan Motorsports in Orlando to get performance parts installed he had that problem. After dropping it off a few days earlier, he came back to pick it up. The dealership told him a technician was going to take it for a quick test run to make sure everything was working while he took care of the bill. Nothing wrong with that. However, when the phone rang and the technician said he had wrecked the car, Hansen assumed the dealership would take care of the new damage. But they expected him to file a claim under his insurance, even though he wasn’t driving at the time. What would you do?
