Just spoke to the dealership. The seat bottom has already been ordered, and once it gets in, they will set up an appointment to fix the seat and the paint.

While your dealership may be good, they should not have scratched the paint and ruined your seat. That is just plain shoddy work. On my first car when the top was replaced I got my car back just like I left it. Actually better. It was fully detailed inside and out. Be aware of every little nook and cranny of your car.

I fully agree with you. However, the dealership did sub out the top replacement. It was this company that caused the damage. The company that did the work is well known in my area for top replacements and interior repairs/upgrades, and they have been in business since 1926. If I was to take my older cars to have anything done, I would have selected the same spot.

I have only had this car shy of 3 months. I am still learning all the nooks and crannies.

One moral of this story might be to proactively remove the back seats before taking it in for the top replacement.

Maybe that means removing the subwoofer as well.

Just a thought.

Mine was outsourced also. The guy actually lives about 3 miles away from me and I stopped by once to see my car. Just makes me wonder if anyone actually takes pride in their work anymore.

I happen to agree.

A coworker told me today that his father had to have his Galaxy 500 in the body shop after someone hit it. Within 3 days, the body shop backed a Mercedes in to the grill and broke the grill. The next night, the left the car on the rack and lifted, and the rack dropped the car. They are still checking to see if there is any frame damage.

I do IT work, and I treat every machine I touch like I own it. I don't get the carelessness that goes on at this point.

Quick update...

I still have a hole in my seat. The dealership has not gotten the part yet (so I am told).

Oh yes, classic response & easy out for the dealer. Maddening. Take LOTS of iPhone pics with dealership/clock in the background when you drop it off.

Unbeliveable. When I worked at a Pontiac dealership in 1981, we were super careful with customers' cars because it was the right thing to do. Sad to see things have degraded to this point.

Same here, I'm an IT trainer and never skimp on a class, and treat mechanical things the same way. Does nobody care about the job they do anymore?

Scared to take my vert in for rear window road noise. Wondering what I'll do when 3 year warranty is up. This car is *too beautiful* to trade, but what else would be the same or better - Corvette? Lexus? Mercedes? No, because they are not the hot stuff that is a Camaro. I hope the stars align and I don't have to get rid of this car because the warranty expires.

From your lips to God's ears.

My 2012 IBM RS (black top) was the most beautiful car I've ever owned...or ever will own.
