Can't the dealer simply unplug it and run your car like a dog then plug it back in when they're done?
Yes, that is true...but, c'mon guys, give us a break. We've got better things to do than "Hot Rod" your car. What you should worry about is how it was driven...before you bought it!
I was service manager at a Mazda dealer and also racing a car in the Playboy Endurance Cup through SCCA Pro Racing. My dealer let me drive any of the fast cars when they came out. The 1987 Turbo RX7 was released and I drove it with the dealer principal to 145 mph, myself. By 5:00 that evening that same car had 100 miles on it and had gone though a whole tank of gas. Did the same thing when the Buick Grand National came out, as we were a Buick dealer also. We were wondering why, as fast as it was, that it would only do 125 mph...then I hit the brakes...:trollFace:..the doggone thing wouldn't stop!
That was back then, I'm sure similar things still happen, think about it, it's a test drive on a new car. Even my own 2007 STS-V had 98 miles on it when I first saw it and 207 by the time I got it home, that's because I went on the dealer trade and drove it back from San Diego. But rarely do we even see techs, porters or managers abuse customer cars ,:chair: you can get canned for that.
