    I just don't have luck with dealers!

    Took my Miata ND in for a warranty work (replacing the rag top) two weeks ago. Told the service advice about being careful with my car LOL!!

    When it was time to pick it up, I found a scratch (to the bare metal). Normally the scratch would be on the door's side as a result of hitting somebody's car or wall when opened. I am assuming during the top replacement the doors were opened and something fell on that spot and another one near the vin tag inside (no pic posted). This is the same car that almost 3 years ago when I bought it late at night that had a long scratch and a dent. Car was perfect before I signed the docs. I am assuming the guy who washed it scratched it with his belt. Drove 90 miles back to the dealership to have the dent pulled out (PDR) but asked them not to mess with the scratch since I didn't want them to burn my clear coat by wet sanding. Since the car is white, its hard to see the mark directly.


    When I had my 350z, brought it in for a second oil change and found a hole in my bumper LOL!! I don't want to even visit the dealership unless its for warranty work. When I had the Tacoma free maintenance, I did my oil change...

    I took my Miata in to the dealership for an oil change one time, and the tech/mechanic/idiot jumped in the car and backed it into a UPS truck right in front of me. I couldn't believe my eyes. Needless to say I completely snapped and they fixed it for free, but still..now my Miata had an accident history because of those cretins.

    Once they get your money, I've found those places don't give two shts about you or your car. Sorry to see what happened and good luck getting it fixed.

    Hey guys. I need advice on choosing a car for my wife. I just already chose to buy a Japanese car, alto 800 price list see here, I think it is reliable. And question about staff. What equipment is better to buy in addition to the standard?

    The equipment to quit trying to get us to click random links on your 1st post. That would probably be your best bet.
