I’ll tell you when it rains, it pours. Yesterday, dh took the car into get serviced. This had nothing to do with last week’s service on the car. After a few hours he returns to the dealership to see if the work on the car was finished. The guy brings the car out and it’s been scraped. Apparently, ‘Sparky’ hadn’t learned how to take corners and missed. So now we’re driving a rental while the dealership puts our car into the body shop on Monday. The sad thing is this is the second time something like this has happened in the past three weeks here. A guy dropped his Porsche off at the dealership a couple of weeks ago and when he went to pick it up it had $25,000 worth of damage done to it. One of the dealership employees had driven it over to a car wash and accidentally left it in gear. It ran into a wall going close to 40mph. Porsche, at the time of the story, had refused to pay for the damages. At least our dealership was proactive in their remedy to fix the problem. Yikes!
