I spoke to the dealership and once again the Service Advisor John was extremely informative. I called for two reasons, one to explain what I read and he said absolutely, the other, to inquire as to why was someone driving my car to a quickie shop for a bite to eat. My camera dvr installed in the car caught it all. I just saw it this morning and the person left the car running for over 30 minutes. I politely explained you have a yard for this and test driving the car did not entail stopping for lunch. John was flabbergasted and said he will contact the service manager asap. One bad allegedly apple does not spoil the bunch. John is a former Marine so I have to trust his integrity as he knew nothing of this. The camera cut off at 30 minutes and there is a 4 hour block of recording that went missing. Coincidence, maybe. Meaning....he was still there or the person shutoff the car and did not record due to lack of power. AH something to write home about. Its not like the dealer did not know I had a camera in the car. I showed them so they knew it was plugged in to the rear power-point NOT hot wired so it would not void any warranty concerns. Still not too upset, just livid that people do this sort of thing. I never would have checked the memory card if it did not read full on the screen. Lesson learned.

As the day wore on I am getting more upset. Think it's time to move on. I mean hell what really goes on when you drop off your car? Bad enough you need to worry about valet parking now this? The pair on the individual. I am not really a person who dislikes confrontation when I am wronged. I am fair to a point. But i am a bulldog. Need another freaking dealer? Come on sheesh!!!!!!

Thinking of posting on YouTube titled HEY THAT'S NOT ME DRIVING MY CAR WHO DAT LOL

Fun times driving my car. Thanks for letting my car run unattended and hope your lunch was yummy! The tech went right from the parking lot straight for a bite to eat. He was in there for over thirty minutes then the cam stopped for over 4 hours. Wonder what happened. I have zero footage of when the car left the store. Thanks for not wearing a seatbelt buddy and breaking the law!!

Looked like he went to pick up beer from that liquor store.

It's a 7-11 type store. You see he left my car running. I have those clips. Again, makes you wonder what happens when you leave your car t the dealer. BS he was road testing my car.
