This dealership is local to me, and I think it's a fitting story for here as well...

When you take your car to get serviced, how do you know the mechanics aren't driving it like it's a getaway car in a heist movie? This 2010 Camaro SS driver figured out one very clever way: he placed a voice recorder in the car to capture the dealership employees driving and working on the car.

He's probably glad he did — his recording captures audio of mechanics beating the crap out of the car.

According to the video and the description on YouTube, this driver had a gear grinding problem at parking lot speeds and so he took it to Best Chevrolet in Easley, South Carolina. But the audio captures the technicians "cutting ass" in the car at high speeds for 20 minutes and joking about other times they've done the same.

"He drives like a ****ing maniac when he gets in one," one employee said to another about the tech who drove the car.

But that isn't the worst part. That comes when the shop is apparently describing how to bill the customer and charge General Motors for warranty work as well.

"If it was me, I'd write this ****er up at him buying a clutch for it... him buying a clutch disk, let them warranty the pressure plate, bill them in on two days later so I'll get paid to put a clutch in it and then get paid to put a pressure plate in it.

Really nice, Easley Chevrolet. We hope this driver's problem gets resolved soon, because it wouldn't look too good for the dealership if this went to court.
