Default Dashcam Video of visit to Loeber Motors - Sprinter with 994 miles on it

As promised, here is dashcam video of visit to Loeber Motors in Lincolnwood, IL.

Part 1 - Sitting in lot, pulled into shop


Part 2 - The big repair


Part 3 - Five minute test drive


Part 4 - Just sitting - provided for continuity


Part 5 - Scratching it up


Part 6 - Aftermath


The dashcam video is in 5 parts, due to youtube length limits.

This may not play properly as an embedded video. You may need to view it at youtube. To view it at youtube, click on the youtube logo in the footer of the viewer.

Charge was $146 for what appears to be 5 minutes of tech time, for what seems like a warranty repair -- resetting misbehaving SRS warning. Car wash resulted in extremely noticeable scratching to hood and other painted surfaces.

Invoice attached.

Wow. Talk about quality documentation.

That's even more egregious stealershipping than my local SS charging me an hour (over $100 IIRC) for tightening the large rear door latch nut on my T1N. I didn't get a wash, though.

Care to enlighten us on your camera setup? Works perfectly and appears invisible to casual passers by.

Absent this forum, I'd never have bought a Sprinter.

The dealer doesn't have a great website. Here's the materials they do have on the unit:

If you search on "dashcam", you'll find a list of the issues I have with this camera. Short version: There are problems, but it's not the worst unit out there.
