and yeah i believe it to happen but what i can't believe is


Unfortunately for Smith, there's few other steps he can take that don't end in court. Dealers are regulated by states; Clark can file a complaint with South Carolina officials, but even with an audio recording the assessment of damage isn't so clear-cut as if the mechanics had wrecked it on a test drive. Instead, other Camaro owners have taken up the cause, posting Smith's video to the dealership's Facebook page and otherwise making noise about the problem.

You can hear the entire exchange, including the profanity, here. A lawyer for Best Chevrolet, in a request to Yahoo Autos to take down this story, told us in an email that the audio was "misleadingly edited." Clark has said the dealership has threatened to sue him over the audio, but has also spoken with him about buying the Camaro back. The dealership may soon learn that in the Internet era, one burnt clutch can create quite the stink.

Saw the video a few days ago. I'm too lazy to read through the thread, how did it end with the dealership?

I'm sure that what the techs pondered about at the end... happen all the time. Do the clutch on paid time.. and then do the clutch on company warranty time.
Get paid 2x: bingo.

Exactly the reason why when I buy my cars, they never see the dealer again.

Best Chevy (the dealership where the car was abused) is starting to take a beating on business rating sites...
