What's the difference? If you didn't end up buying the car either, you did the exact same thing. Maybe the dealer intends to buy one later on, or can speak from personal experience to potential buyers on how it drives.

I'd rather a dealer who has actually driven the car and knows about it, than one who's got his head in the sand like an Ostrich and is just regurgitating what is written in the brochures.

Im a big guy 6'1 300lbs and i got in and out of the Camaro just fine, something that i cant do in a Corvette. the visability is pretty typical of a sports car and was manageable. the cloth interior on the 1LT was just ok to me. The sound system was great and the connectivity package is a must have option! The exterior aesthetics are beautiful and will draw a crowd wherever it goes. We had people coming in all day and night drooling over the car. The V6 exhaust note at idle is quite tame but when you put your foot into it there was a real nice growl that emitted from behind me. All in all I am still in love with this car and am very excited to be a part Chevrolet providing these fine vehicles to you guys. for those of you waiting and waiting it will be worth it!! this car delivers as promised in the feel good/look good department!
So you and I going for a drive today hahaha

alright whatever... I got it. BUT it is different, I am a consumer testing something out, he is a salesman beating on a product with no intent to buy it. Maybe he will buy on some day, whatever, does that mean he should thrash this one around.

Agree with me or don't. I don't care. I am just saying that it isnt right b/c someone is going to buy a car that was improperly broken in. Maybe it will be your car... how would you like it if the dealer did shit like that to your car before you took delivery.... as it was said, its their car to do what they want with until they sell it...
