Yup. It wasn't THAT bad (not as bad as it could have been, I actually agree), but that's not the point. I'm starting to think it's maybe getting a bit out of hand. Some of the comments are so irritating. People bashing the brand, the car, and me (even though I feel like I did nothing wrong. Maybe I did idk). I never gave CarScoops any info like that. I was PISSED OFF so I shared my exp on this forum, FB, and reddit. Now ppl are resharing, arguing, and leaving bad reviews on a dealership that they never personally dealt with.I saw that article yesterday and had no clue it was a forum member, that's crazy.
The comments are ridiculous though. The two people involved (you and the dealership) both agree this was a problem and hence the employee was fired. Why is everyone else chiming in?
The fact that most of the comments are saying 'the joyride wasn't THAT bad' really shows how idiotic they are. The point is he went on a ride without a service related reason, which just should not happen, end of story. It only adds insult to injury that he clearly rode out the gears when cold and had zero concern or respect for your car. f$%k him.
Oh and that comment by 'therealist', oh man.
I'm getting upset on your behalf. I know others are saying pursue this but I personally think you should just put this to bed. He was fired. If there's no lasting damage to your car then I would just save the energy and move on. Not worth your time.
