Yes. This is a rant.
I've been driving a rental Chevy Cavalier for the last week. Its an automatic so its even another notch of suck.

On the 10th, I left my car with the body shop to take out the 'lot scratches' and the dent they put in the fender. I almost expected the car to be ready Friday when I got the call.

Except the bodyshop guy forgot to call service to install the parts.

It'll be Monday. Right.

Monday afternoon- I call. All they have to do is install the center console where the parking brake hit and rubbed a spot. The boot was ruined as well.

The circus, I mean service shop said the wrong part had been ordered. The console didn't include the ebrake boot.

Now I really wouldn't have minded what had been going on until this point except the advisor said one thing...
"Well... its a bad design. They all do it. Even my 1995 Mustang does that."

That says to me, half-ss is good enough.

I will say that the NewCar Sales GM has been helpful. He's paying for the rental car and does what he says.

Wow man I feel your pain. I just hope you'll be back on the road real soon. Some businesses could be a real pain in the a##. Sometimes they act like they don't care. People have a bad night and take it out on everyone they see. Hang in there. Absence makes the heart grow fonder if that helps. All will be well again. Keep us posted. My wifes Taurus was just in the shop, and we got the Chevy Cavalier as a loaner. Wow, what a piece of crap.

I feel your pain. I was in the same boat. I was stuck (due to the tragic events and the airport closings) in Norfolk, VA for work last week. I was driving a 4 door escort around..... Also, once a month I am given the opportunity to drive an evaluation fleet car around for a week. Since I have gotten my Bullitt I have passed on that too. I just can't drive another car knowing I could be driving my car :grin: !!!!!
