Perhaps some of you know about this, but in case you don't, here's what started a sequence of posts that got the author of this passage RIGHTFULLY fired:

"MAN IT WAS WAY COOL, DROVE A '03 COBRA VERT TODAY THAT WAS IN THE SHOP, ME AND ANOTHER TECH TOOK IT OUT AND DROVE IT, DROVE HER HARD, 6 SPEED TRANNY, WE HIT 140 MPH REAL QUICK, TALK ABOUT POWER. NOT THAT WE DO IT HERE ALL THE TIME, BUT I JUST HAD TO RUN IT, IT WAS CALLING MY NAME... THE POWER IT HAS IN UNREAL, YOU JUST NEED TO GET OUT AND TEST DRIVE ONE TODAY, BY THE WAY, THE CUSTOMER'S COMPLAINT WAS LACK OF POWER AND POOR GAS MILEAGE, WHAT A CROCK... NEEDLESS TO SAY, IT IS OWNED BY A FEMALE, SHE EVEN SAID IT WAS DYNOED AT A SHOP AND THEY TOLD HER THAT THE CONVERTORS WERE TOO HOT AND THE FUEL TRIM WAS WAY OFF. I HOOKED IT UP TO THE COMPUTER, FUEL TRIM WAS NORMAL, CAT TEMP WAS OK, NO CODES, AND IT RAN GREAT. GO FIGURE.. OH YEAH, SHE EVEN TOLD THE SERVICE WRITER TO MAKE SURE THAT NO "PUNK" DRIVES HER CAR, WELL SINCE I AM THE MUSTANG SPECIALIST HERE AT THE DEALER, I GUESS I AM "THE PUNK", ALL THE MORE TO DRIVE HER '03 COBRA VERT AND SEE WHAT ITS GOT.. HEHE HOPE SHE DIDNT HAVE A HIDDEN CAMERA IN THAT CAR...... GET THIS, HER PLATES SAY "**** **""

god, what a moron. to take a $35,000 car and treat it like he's driving his car. for one thing, the service writer did not write down on the R/O to drive in excess of 100 mph to check engine performance. and second, its a paying customer's car, before i worked at that chevy dealership, some fool got fired for taking a corvette and running the hell out of it. i do road tests, i did one on a camaro Z-28, just got done doing a tranny service and flush. when it was time to do a road test, i drove it at regular driving conditions, just to make sure it shifts right. all in all, taking someone elses car and driving it like that is just a stupid thing to do.:mad:

BTW, just so you all know, it happened at Northside Ford in San Antonio Texas.

Actually, that's probably the place to go to now because I've heard that they've taken a lot of heat for that. Basically, people from all over the U.S. have either called or mailed them expressing their "dissatisfaction" at what happened.

To boot, that post made it's way onto many different boards, even a Honda board!!!
