it's such a hypothetical question. the only determining factor is the character of the person who drove your car. one guy might another might not.

more importantly does it really matter? These things are very very tough. Very Very hard to kill even wearables like the clutch, much less the hardparts.

I'd just ignore it unless they are obviously joyriding it for no purpose other than to take it for a spin.

100% agree.

You'ld be better served worrying about members of Al Queida tea bagging you in your sleep and posting the pic here at NASIOC.

Well one,If it was your wheels and you never opened it up yet and were breaking it in real
mellow you would be getting a little nervous.
Two in the other threads they made a big
stink about breaking it in first.I know the dealers who went to pittsburg for training
said all the cars had over 1000 miles on them before they were messaged.Also there
is a silver one at the dealer with a blown
engine.It was stupid question like the guy said it depends on the person character.I was just trying to vent last night!! Matt

I make sure that the service advisor notes that there are to be no "test" drives without the owner on board. I also make a second copy of my on list (a Word document I through together with VIN, model, color, tag number and what needs servicing) and tape it over the stereo so the tech is clear on everything.

i work at a subie dealer here in montreal, and have never seen any of the techs or the jockies treat the cars with anything but the utmost respect! i for one have been on the road with customers cars and was nothing less than super careful and respectful. just my 2 cents.

I doubt for the most part the mechanics care anymore... They all joyrode the cars before delivery

I doubt also that they have a separate set of standards for vehicles. If you're so worried I'd learn to start and work on the car yourself.

Could not have said it any better. It happens ALL THE TIME, regardless of what car you have. Hell I just saw a tech from a Chevy dealership the other day mashin' the crap out of a 2004 Silverdo HD(window stickers and all) coming out of the gas station on a PDI gas fill up. Like Stevie said, if that's got you paranoid then I suggest working on it yourself for peace of mind.
