Driver Records South Carolina Chevy Dealership Trashing His Camaro [Video]

Oct 7, 2012 Full story: Jalopnik

When you take your car to get serviced, how do you know the mechanics aren't driving it like it's a getaway car in a heist movie? This 2010 Camaro SS driver figured out one very clever way: he placed a voice recorder in the car to capture the dealership employees driving and working on the car.

EASLEY, S.C. Best Chevrolet has purchased a debated 2010 Chevrolet Camaro today and will auction of the vehicle for the March of Dimes in the coming weeks.

The vehicle in question has been the focus of a recent viral video created by a local man. The person who brought the car to the dealership secretly recorded discussions between two employees and later released a portion of the audio on the internet. Today, Best Chevrolet is releasing the entire 30 minutes of the audio to give the full version of the situation.

At the end of the tape, he drives the vehicle in a similar manner to the one that he complains about. He drives the car just as hard. A car of that style needs to be driven hard to test for the problem he stated. It is a high performance car and is not likely to be damaged in such a way.

In his own words, his vehicle already had been damaged at another location.

The vehicle in question was not originally purchased at the dealership nor ever worked on at Best Chevrolet. The vehicle was brought in for a diagnostic in September, but no work was ever recommend or performed.

Best Chevrolet takes all customer complaints seriously. The dealership prides itself on reputation and service. They are pleased to say we have reached a deal that ultimately will serve local charities

He stopped the recording before he drove off. So you have no idea how he drives it. He's never "melted the clutch" like the mechanic admitted to doing in the audio. So, YES, thats harder in twenty minutes by them than in three years by him. Where he bought it is of no concern to you. He brought to Best Chevrolet in Easley, SC to be professionally evaluated. BUT Best Chevy intentionally created a problem in order to get paid twice. All evident on the recording.

I encourage everyone to keep this subject alive and well. I downloaded the video before it was pulled from youtube, and have been posting it everywhere I can. Keep hounding G.M. until they pull their franchise from "Best" Chevy.

I just don't understand why someone would trash a perfectly good car. I love my Chevy dealership in Waynesboro, Va. I have never been disappointed with their service. http://www.joebowmanautoplaza.com
