A dealer shop should be able to replace an engine in under a day if they know their stuff, like they should. I've had the intake manifold replaced on my Subaru and it took 2 hours at the dealer. They're doing a brake job for me on Friday and said it won't take more than an hour. The only job that should take multiple days to complete is bodywork. If they have to order a part, they should be loaning a car for the night and paying for the gas. It's their fault their inventory wasn't up to the task and you shouldn't have to pay for that.

But, this guy sounds like a con artist so I would have had to steal my car back or hire some goons to rough him up.

Vera and other customers who are complaining of mistreatment have it wrong, the man said. "There are two sides to every story," he insisted.
True. But that doesn't make both sides correct.

Finally. See media? You *CAN* admit this.

Sounds like the guy was running multiple scams and figured he'd be able to use the Coronavirus as another one.

Knowing this and the reputation of a lot of towing companies I wouldn't be shocked if there was a deal between the two where they specifically targeted owners that wouldn't be able to pay the impound fees and split the cash once the cars are sold.

It also wouldn't shock me if he had a financial stake in that tow company and impound yard.

Lucky you to have a good repair shop. The dealer for my car tried to scam me when I took it in for service recently. If not for a dash cam installed that showed they never did the test they claimed I would never have known.

Crooked/lazy shops outnumber the good ones by a significant margin.

Hyundai has had a dealership issue for years. Back when they were still a joke, they capitulated and basically gave dealers anything they wanted to keep the brand. Now that they have a good product, they are stuck with terrible dealers whose rights they cannot legally pull unless something major like this happens. It was good of them to step in here for the wronged customers.

It's depressing realising how many sociopathic sub creatures (Dealership owners) run for and win public office.

I guess we're lucky, then; my wife has a Tuscon that she took to the dealer for some A/C work, it was completely covered under warranty, and they found 2 unrelated issues that they fixed (also under warranty) at the same time and within the timeframe they quoted for the initial repair. Of course, the same owership has a Subaru and Mazda franchise, in addition to Hyundai, perhaps those two brands have been historically more selective.

I wanted to try a newly opened Chik-fil-A on the Westside, but the parking lot was a complete mess. Watched a single tow truck, not a monster platform one, just a regular "hook" up one, hassling some guy who "illegally" parked in the section marked out for a pharmacy. Five linebacker sized dudes, how did they fit in that one truck? Why did that make it even more suspicious?

Not all of them are bad, but the bad ones stand out more than most other brands.

I know here on Fark we want to be all high and mighty, take the high road, and not resort to our neanderthal ways, but some people just deserve SEVERE corporal punishment sometimes.

This is one of those cases, anyone at the dealership or the tow company who had anything to do with this deserve to have the customers use baseball bats on them.

Not quite Pharma Bro levels but yeah, that smirk isn't doing him any favors.

Maybe not punchable (I never remember to take my rings off first or things happen so fast no time to do so) but we could throw eggs at him. Rotten eggs, of course. I wouldn't waste good ones.

I can't think of any experience I have had with a dealership that didn't make me pissed off.  They farked up the steering on my wife's truck (It worked fine when it went in, and had tremendously excessive play when we picked it back up), they replaced the explosive air bag on my small car and forgot to hook the horn back up, tried to charge me for new wires to replace the wires I had just replaced on an engine misfire (I fixed that myself after telling them to not touch it and leave the keys in the driver's sun visor), changed a drivers-side half-shaft when the one that was worn was the passenger's side.  I'm sure I could come up with more if I thought about it, but it's pissing me off anew.  And that is just the "service" department.  The crooked sales policies are another rant.

Find a good non-affiliated mechanic and buy your cars from people, not dealers.  At least if you get screwed someone makes out good on the deal.

That place gave me such unwelcome vibes that I bought my second-place car, a Toyota, the next day (last summer). Glad I dodged that bullet.

// Imagine the entitlement of a Honda dealership in the 1990s. Then imagine having hundreds of cars, yet not being able to provide one for a test drive(!)

Dangit, I should have finished the thread before posting.

Still stand by my comment about using one to beat the other one, though.

I'm glad they can but in this case, I'm thinking the owners are telling the right side of the story, not the dealership. Especially since they're all pretty much saying the same thing and this guy got busted for fraud last year.

Toyota says 20 hours for a replacement. I had a rebuild installed in my 98 Tacoma and I know it took longer because my mechanic is anal about his work. It took longer than we both liked but the end result is an old new truck that runs so smooth it sometimes doesn't feel like it is running at an idle.

He can drop a junk yard engine in in one day but the full rebuild like mine? It is a time sink due to all the bolting of parts from the old one to the new one along with all the cleaning.

Some things just take time to be done right.

I heard that in both of their voices. Like, very distinctly heard them.

Also, a Hyundai dealer named Nissani, with the unlikely first name of Hooman? This is satire, right?

I know it's not cool to make fun of names, but Hooman Nissani sounds like it was made up by a dog who was pulled over while driving a Juke.
