Dealership Employees Take Rare Ferrari Out On Highway, Crash It

When you bring your vehicle in for repair, you sort of expect that your vehicle will be waiting for you when you return.

The Subprime Meltdown Is The Tip Of The Credit Iceberg

The ongoing subprime meltdown is merely the first destructive wave of credit catastrophe to wash over Wall Street, according to Slate’s resident explainer. Americans drunkenly bandy credit around in several forms: mortgages are the most prevalent loans turning sour, but credit card debt, student loans, and auto loans are silently conspiring to threaten our macroeconomic well-being.

Many SUV And Truck Headrests Suck, Don't Protect Against Injury From Rear Collisions

Why should you care? Because you’re more likely to need the protection of a headrest than you are an airbag. Rear collisions are common.

Dealership Wrecks Customer’s Corvette, Won’t Compensate Him

Poor Mr.Williams. He brought his 2005 Corvette into San Rafael Chevrolet to have a bad antenna and a jammed trunk fixed, and instead he got a wrecked ‘vette. It seems that “Gene B.”, an employee of San Rafael Chevy, took the car of the lot (against the owner’s specific instructions) and smashed into a big box truck. The ticket issued for the accident says that Gene was driving too fast for conditions, and as if that wasn’t damning enough, Mr. Williams found a bottle of codeine/acetaminophen under the seat. Now Mr. Williams wants the dealership to replace his car or compensate him for the loss of resale value. They’ve said no.
