I would still contact your insurance and explain to them what happened. They should be able to help you as well. And they have their own attorneys....thats what you are paying them for to protect you. Make them work...

Never known anyone that worked in a dealership that wasn't a dirt bag. Few and far between the good ones are.

Be calm and check your position first

Wow, this is something out of a car fanatics nightmare. I certainly hope you are able to roast their a$$ for this and get yourself a new ZL replacement. The stress this kind of crap causes are really tough on people so try and take a big breath, enjoy the holidays and know that if you need all of us from the Camaro community to rally behind you that we are all here.

Social media is a wonderful thing but we can certainly make it a disaster for them and flood every internet review system known to mankind with how bad this dealership is. I'm sure we can also arrange a few hundred of us to show up at the dealership to rally to your cause, and so be it if it happens on a weekend they are having an event.

Remember, if you need to raise the price of poker that you have a lot more resources then they do with all of us behind you. Look what's happening inside of one day.

Was going to say, anyone know how to hack their site and put a new position on there for Crash Tester




Somebody may have gone to their website and filled out a vehicle inquiry that may have gone a little like this...

"I heard you guys have a deal on a slightly used 2012 ZL1 that has been thoroughly crash tested for safety this past weekend. Good to know. Maybe I can come by and look at it. From the pics I've seen, I think that will buff out of the front right fender, if we can find it that it is."

If all that is said is true, not saying it isnt... (this is the internet) Then what business would do this. I mean, any responsible business owner would replace the car.

hELP RIP 1635 zl1

Some of you guys may have read the thread about the members ZL1 being taken for a joy ride by a dealers employee,and totaling the car..now the dealer is not willing to help out with replacement or even give them the insurance information,just hoping that they will go away and deal with it out of their own pocket..show your support post a negative review on google pls help out the member you would want help if it was your beloved car..

Call the local media. When a reporter stands outside of their dealership and repeats this story to the community that supports their business, I bet their position will change.

This would never happen at my dealer. This had nothing to do with your car being serviced, they weren't even open. Your car was stolen when they were responsible for it by some a$$ that worked for them. Press charges against the guy and sue the dealer for your loss.

Wow, that's all I can say. I hope you get this resolved! I have been to that dealership several times to look and decided to buy closer to home in Salisbury. We too have an equinox and camaro. I would call WBOC and a lawyer!!

I'll be honest, I didn't believe a single word of this until their facebook page got deleted.

I'm still scratching my head as to why you don't have a lawyer involved. EVERY lawyer I know would chomp at the bit to take payment after settlement on this case, as it is 100% winnable and pretty much open and shut. You left your property in someone else's care where it was destroyed.

I also don't buy that you can't press charges. If not against the dealer, against the service writer. As you've mentioned, they don't have anything you signed waiving liability or implying they needed to test drive your car.

My lawyer gives free consultations. I can guarantee you some good ones in your state do too.

Source: I'm a small business owner. There's no way they're not liable.

Forgot to ask:
Did you own this car outright, or does someone have a lien on it? It's in their interest to get this resolved too.

PM "Chevrolet Customer Svc". I know for a fact they have made calls to dealerships on behalf of members on this board.

As others have said, approach your local TV station that does consumer advocate stories.
Get an attorney, this should be a slam dunk (but we know nothing ever is as simple as it should be).
Sue both the dealer and the employee

I have to say you have handled this like an adult...Brother I would have went ape shit and used PTSD as my excuse...You seriously need to consult with an attorney and when you go to trial have the dealership pay for legal representation. This is definitely not a small claims court case so this will need to betaken up with the state because the value of your property. Please let us know what dealership this so we dont go to it...Hell maybe there should be a STICKY for shitty Dealerships...
