k... idk about actual employees from the service department but a notoriously large tip and an unlocked gate? heck ya!.. When you walk through this S.D. more than half the techs are between 20 and 25- Ther all into the tuning scene- ive scene ther cars, Ive scene what they stock ther 'parts' room with. JDM tite air spencers and other ricerific goodies you dont see at chaplins Theres a youthful influence to this Service department and theres no doubting that.... nevertheless I will add.. which ive been meaning to: whoever uninstalled my seats took them out nice and carefully.. Even I knicked my door jams when putting these things in. It feels like they had time to kill whoever did it- Only damage is my front bumper because the soobie jack stands that were used were waay too low to the ground.. leasurley? -si-

I wouldn't say its necessarily an inside job, but I would say the dealership is responsible for taking care of your car while you are paying them to fix it.

Dude... I totally saw this on Judge Alex! Someone dropped a golf cart off at the dealership to have it serviced and it got jacked! The dealership had it in the locked fence and they broke the chains to get in. Anyway, the dealership was found liable only because they were negligent. They said the only way you can win a case against a dealership is if you can prove that they were negligent in storing your car. Sorry this happened. Maybe that helps... it's court tv and probably isn't the best for legal advise but...

When I was shopping for a WRX in my price range, one of the salesmen at Walker's called me on my cell saying he had 3 that were sub $15,000 in stock. I got there, all three were $17,999+ and 1 of them was an RS. I told them to forget about it and drove back home 40 miles.

Never again would I ever deal with that place just because of that Oh ya, since he had my cell phone #, he called me like a month later saying he got some more cars in stock that I might like. I had to call him back and tell him to stop calling my cell phone and that I all ready bought one.

Anyways, hopefully everything with your car gets situated soon. Give them hell Or.. give them hell after they fix your engne.. lol

How much of the aftermarket stuff was your insurance company aware of?


I know USAA will cover your first dozen CDs, but after that you're SOL. I lost about 200 cds once. Now I have an ipod with my entire collection, and if it gets stolen I've still got it covered.

However, dude. You left your entire cd collection in the car when you dropped it off for service?

Ok, sorry. It's a good learning experience. I'm sure you're pissed about it, as you should be. I hope Walker's takes care of you, as it really sounds like it might have been somebody with an inside connection.

If you want me to pick up those wheels today, that's cool, but if you need something to rest your car on other than your front bumper then use them. either way I don't mind. And I wish a very unpleasant life on those bastard thieves and their children, and their children's children, and so on....

I'm sure the dealership have something call "business insurance". When THEY (because it's in their hand) damage customer's car on their property, the business should take care of it. It was their responsibility to monitor customer's car while it's on their hand. That's why we call it "customer service" . It really doesn't matter who did it, it matters where it was done and this was done on business property, not private property like someone's driveway.
The dealership should contact their insurance company first rather telling their customer's to go to their insurance. That is just too irresponsible.

to the OP

it is possible the dealership may cover your loss
They do have insurance against theft.
All depends upon how it reads out.

I hope for the best for you.

to some of you who've never seen this type of thing before.
news flash: there are scumbags out there

the 2 customer accounts I have personal knowledge of, whereupon this has occurred in the past...

1) random thugs (quite obvious) took some wheels and body bits from a car
they obviously did not know what they were doing
and damaged most of the bits removing them and the car as well.
obviously had no knowledge of the car or bits they were after.


2) kid with a modified car, and no money
kid had a very heavily modified wrx (bought it that way)
kid blew motor
car not under warranty due to mods
kid could not afford repair bill
car was on the lot. locked. secluded. surrounded by other cars
A passerby would never know it was there.
yet mysteriously, within 24 hours, there were parts missing off of the car
car itself was not damaged - just missing parts
an insurance claim filed and paid
just a bit too convenient for anyone to swallow
yet they never found the parts or had concrete proof of the obvious theory.


Look guys
what you fail to understand is this

Most folks who work at dealerships are not enthusiasts

they dont know squat about aftermarket parts
they dont wanna know about them, and they dont care about them.

makes no sense to me based upon my experience that anyone at any dealership would do this at all

IMHO it's a random act. and a sad one.

whoever is responsible is a pathetic, sorry excuse of individuals

Karma is a bitch.
and that bitch will come calling sooner or later.

plain and true.

Jam~

a random act...

so someone just randomly carries 20 pound jack stands around.... as well as removing 2 nice seats, with out making any scratches....


you said something that kind of stood out there....


~car was on the lot. locked. secluded. surrounded by other cars
A passerby would never know it was there.~


still seems really iffie @ best. i understand you want the dealership to look good and all. but there are just way to many factors in play here that point to the dealership.

Renton, you'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

My bro's S2k seats and steering wheel were stolen when he was in Renton.

Wow that really sucks dude. To the guys thinking this is a inside job, I doubt it, too much risk. Even if the cops think it was they can not and will not run a background check and fingerprint all the employees. As far as fingerprinting the car they will put what they find on file but guess what any of the employees prints could be in that car for any reason without raising a flag. Printing the car will only be good for the next guy they rip off, as they will link it to yours but they don't have anything to go on unless this asshat has a record and prints on file and even with that they are unlikely to actively search out this guy. It will not be the dealerships responsibility to recoup your loses IMO. I am sorry this happened but I'm just trying to show the reality of the way things work. I would not blame the dealership or think any differantly of them but thats just me, s happens. Best of luck to you. Keep us updated.

Apiringrex--

You should post up the phone number to the dealership and give us the general manager's name so we can call and let them know that we are very displeased with what has taken place.

I have participated in such actions and have found it to help out in similar situations.


Also, I would contact this guy over at Subaru of America. He is my inside contact at Subaru...

While the mechanics make good money and don't typically care, I would wager that there are a few lot boys, lube techs, and other low-paid positions held by kids who are in it because they are enthusiasts. And not having a lot to lose when it comes to an entry level job, ...

yea yea.....


lol.


i would agree that having other people call and ask to speek to the manager will do something. hard to tell if it will help though. they just might get pissed off. then not make any effort to try and make things right.... not that the average stealership would make an effort, maybe these guys will be the gigger guys and try and help you out....
