      Ron Tonkin Chevrolet in Portland Oregon. Car is a 2016 Camaro and had around 7000 miles which the ****-brained mechanic (definitely DIW) lifted the car at all 4 corners on the rocker panels.

      Dealership claimed no damage. I went to my insurance and got the rocker panels replaced. Took one of the rocker panels into the service manager with a copy of the repair bill. Got a call a couple days later from one of the Tonkin family members informing me that they wouldn't be paying for it since I didn't give them an oportunity to repair it themselves. According to USAA they have started the legal process.

      Worst possible way to run a business. I'll be making sure to leave reviews everywhere once the legal side is finished.


      No Damage.....

      Make a new thread in the lounge so this doesn't clutter up this one. That is rage inducing. I hope it works out for you.

      Please do make a thread.

      The "we damaged it through our sheer incompetence but trust us, we can really fix it ourselves" dealership logic needs to die in fire.

      If there is one thing I have learned from this forum in the past week, it is not to buy a new Camaro.

      Hard to see but the a-pillar claims that "this just the beginning", what shenanigans I wonder led to the demise of this Cavalier.

      I just hope that 370z was junk before they modified it.
      Because it is definitely junk now.

      Sorry for the quality, I had to use the zoom on my phone. That's a "SRT Design" badge on the hatch. Maybe Sergio found a buyer for FCA?

      213% of braking occurs with the front brakes. Obviously not.
