My car was in the dealer for a prolonged test to try to find a hard to duplicate problem.
When I got the car back, I decided to look at my FreeDrive logs, and found out that the tech had decided to drive my car 106MPH. I took a screenshot of the log and brought my laptop with me so I could show the logs to the Service Manager. The tech got suspended w/o pay for 2 days, and the issue was taken care of to my approval.
Has anyone else used their carputer to catch someone doing something that they shouldn't with their car?
So this just goes out as a thanks to everyone who I posted things on this board that helped me with my carputer over the past year and half. You all helped me catch people abusing my car, and my trust.
Moral of the story....Don't **** with a tech!
Heh, and I think that people at that dealership will be afraid to work on my car now. Knowing that it's watching them
What type of test/repair was your car in for? Maybe it was needed to drive it for so many miles in order to duplicate the problem?
Although on the flip side I have a friend who is a Toyota Master Tech and he always cruzes customers cars to lunch and stuff. "road test" he calls it.. And of course he always rips all their CD's to his laptop.. But I'll give him this, the guy is a damn good tech.
Sell me your stuff.. please see what i'm looking to buy
Corporate policy states that they can't excede the speed limits to diagnose a problem. The car was supposed to be driven on cruise for a prolonged period of time to try to diagnose a torque converter lockup solonid problem.
It wasn't that they drove the car a long distance, it's that they drove it at 106 Miles Per Hour!
i love that haha!
sweet.. i must get that.. even though i do all my own work on my car....
Reminds me of a comic strip I saw many years ago in a comic magazine called CARtoons...Originally Posted by fooshizn1x
A gu gets pulled over and explains to the cop, "The boss said to rotate the tires. Rotating them at 90mph was my idea."
That is very cool.
Old Systems retired due to new car
New system at design/prototype stage on BeagleBoard.
I usually turn my computer off when I take it in. I'm paranoid about someone wanting to **** with it. But....this would be a reason to leave it on!
