All kinds of GMTs in the shop today.
TB owner - "What do you mean the gas cap wasn't on?"
Bravada (I rarely see these in the shop) with the incorrect oil capacity written on the air box cover.
I've worked on hundreds of these trucks and had never seen the cluster (and radio) set to another language. Darned if I knew how to change it back. All I know is that I was conductor 2!
I also had a G3500 5.7 with an "Ever since...." story. Ever since I replaced the leaking oil cooler lines, the left bank intake gasket started leaking. Those things never leak, right?
I've said it a million times - dealers deserve their reputation for screwing you. For some reason this story really makes my blood boil.
I know it would not do much good, but why find another job and go public with this?

Sad part is, I don't work at a dealer. (For clarification, there are archived posts on trailvoy where I said that I did, I started this place in March 2010.)
Been to the dealer (10 years), they suck. Did retail and independents (over 6), they suck too. I'm staying here until I can do my own thing. Then I'll do a tell all book. Or movie!
I'd be tempted to tell them privately anyway.
It is tempting, but I can't trust that they won't march back into the office saying "Do you know what you're mechanic just told me!"
