Wow
Capain Obvious "That Blows !!!"
Who ever did it, definatly has done it before, it looks to be a semi pro job, the way they poped seat belts out of door holsters and such, when they could have just smash/cut/grabbed em... Hopefully you didn't sign over liability from lot to yourself in documents, and see if anyway possible to get finger prints from people that work there, unless they used gloves (probably did) you could try and connect the dots, but it all seems a shot in the dark, keep your eyes open on the black market for the parts, and merry christmas Carster.

Sorry to disagree with you but there is a major difference. His vehicle was left in the businesses care for a service that was getting paid for. It is the responsibility of the business to return his car in the same condition plus what services were being paid for. <--One thing that was drilled into my head in a Business Law course years ago. Maybe that has change but doubtful.

OP, please don't listen to me or anyone else except to seek the advice of an attorney. $5500 is enough of an incentive to seek professional advice to know what your options are.

If it isn't the responsibility of the shop, you would have all these dodgy service shops opening up, specifically to rip off people with modified motors. "Sorry mate, your problem! Claim off your insurance."
I don't buy it. Get a lawyer and see what they say.

on the other hand, you could curb the crap out of your wheels, run some fake mods, take your car in to subaru to be serviced...have someone jack your wheels and have it covered by the dealer?

i wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t state somewhere in the paperwork that you signed, that they are not responsible for your car when it's on their property getting fixed. Any case if you need to picket or boycott to help get your things back without having to pay, I’m there. Just pisses me off that they are willing to take our money but not willing to cover our cars when damaged on their property while getting fixed.

Having a shop push your car into a bay every night isn't super un-reasonable. Smart Service pushed my car into a bay every night before they locked up when my tranny blew.

Looks like it's time to lawyer up, and never go back to that dealership again.

Sorry about your loss, it feels like you were violated doesn't it?

Angry Heck no lets go picket their store, this is bull!

You drop ur car off to get serviced not robbed and its their duty to protect ur car. So if ur car was in the building and it burnt down, its not their fault either? My old honda car was wrecked by a toyota dealer and they repaired it that week! And gave me a car rental and a bunch of servicing on top! This is plain and simple bull.

while I may not agree with it, let's not hate a dealer because some thieves broke into their lot and stole a customers stuff. It's no wonder we end up with reviews like "that dealer is a POS", when things like this happen. IMO, it's not the dealers fault.

I just dont find a comparison between a dealership burning down with your car in it, or a dealer wrecking your car to someone climbing a fence and stripping a car on the dealers property. I'm not trying to get down on aspiring cause his car is beautiful and nobody deserves this kind of ****.

If your car was jacked at the mall would you expect them to pay for it? How about an overnight airport parking lot?

Exclamation You truely must not see the light,

Lets put this another way, the dealer is responsible to protect ur car! Are u supposed to sleep overnight in ur car every night its there? No, ur paying them for a service and they r to perform such service in a safe and protected environment! What if a mechanic walked by and scratched ur 5,000 dollor custom paint job? r u going to say oh my bad ill pay to get it fixed! Heck no ud be charging them for the paint job, this is the same case and they r responsible for the car in everyway!

I agree the dealer should pay for the mechanic that scratches your car. And that again is an ill comparison to wha t occurred. The mechanic scratching your car is the fault of the dealer.Some idiot burglarer (yes its burglary because they unlawfully entered a fenced in area with the intent to commit a crime) isnt the fault of the dealer, its just a full on lack of respect from an idiot or two who probably weren't spanked by their parents as kids.

The job of a dealer is to service your vehicle and in this case it was to repair the motor. But if you're willing to pay for increased dealership premiums so they can stock their yards with security or a couple of dobbermans..enjoy.

Again, is the movie theater responsible for your car while you're inside watching Flipper? Maybe the state should pay for any collission I may be involved in on their public roads (this is an extreme, as are your examples)

I'm done squabbling about this. This is about aspring's loss and not our uneducated opinions. I can only wish that he gets a propper resolution to what happened.

C: it's not the dealerships responsibility to protect your car from theft/vandalism

that's what your insurance is for.
read the fine print before you sign any service contract/agreement


I'm sorry about your car
this happened to my better 1/2 when he WORKED at a (different) dealership years ago

He left his car there for a couple of days
they jacked his seats/belts and more...

I feel your pain and hope your insurance company gets it sorted quick

I dont know Jamie, this does sound like an inside job, maybe not someone who works for the dealer directly removing the items from the car but, this sure looks like something planned or tipped off. With no forcefull entry to the site or to the car. Just sounds fishy.

Now i know the dealer said this hasnt happend in like three years they should be atleast willing to try to help you out some, i dont know the whole story but something. I hope they are. It is true they are not liable and that sucks.
Ive been to there lot as ive had my old car serviced there before never over night, and it really could use some servalance or some more lighting. I hope the PD runs a background check on the employee's around there, or atleast the dealership does an internal investigation on how someone could get items like this out of there lot without being seen or heard if this was not an inside job. Ive seen 10 or more new STI's in this lot at any given time so they have a job to protect there own cars atleast.

They are responsible for your car while it is in their possession/lot, waiver or no waiver.

You are paranoid - for no reason.

I say no way

A shop mechanic makes enough $ to buy any auto part they want/need

Why in hell would they rob some seats from a customers car
seriously, it's asinine.

Renton. 4 day weekend. Nobody around. Buncha bored kids/thugs.

I've been working for multiple dealerships for 5+ years now
this can, and occasionally does, happen -

it's not not often but there are low life scumbags out there with nothing better to do.

Jam~
