Exclamation Green Diesel Engineering Review: Bad

They have caller ID and do not answer the phone to earn business. What I mean is they want an easy sale. If you start asking questions about their product for pre-sales purpose such as a call back for a question, they know you are calling them again based on caller ID and refuse to answer. They don't return messages.

Their product is way over priced. They need a competitor! Their product is merely software in an OBD device worth around $150 and maybe an hour of personal attention worth around $100, but they charge $700 for both (unethically advertised as $695 odd pricing to deceive you). They are greedy capitalists who only care about making easy money and don't care to make the world a better place.

If you use their product, your vehicle won't pass many state's smog / emissions testing.

Did you actually buy anything from them to review?

It seems like you didn't buy anything, but had some tiff with them so you are trashing their product.

You aren't actually posting a "review".

Are you 100% certain what you are saying is true about not passing smog?

I dont have any of stuff but run my own businesses and getting "reviews" by non clients is something Im sensitive to.

You know what I find terrifying, as a non-business owner that (like most of us) relies heavily on thousands of different businesses in order to eat and survive? .. that there are so many self-rightous tyrants out there who feel entitled to the efforts of hard working and creative people while denying them a profit and simultaneously raging against their existence.

A business relationship is just that: a relationship, between people. One person brings only money to the table, the other brings something of value. An exchange takes place, and everyone benefits. Even if the exchange is unfair, everyone still benefits.

"The customer is always right" is a strategy applied to try to have a successful business. It's not literally true. Capitalism has made us all richer, but it has not made us all smarter

I would be reluctant to use such a product on my vehicle. My vehicle runs fine and when it doesn't, I will investigate why using various resources such as, among others, the collective wisdom of this forum.

Everyone's circumstances and financial resources very, late model sprinters are expensive to own and maintain. There exists two options, Pay others the long dollars for repairs or learn how to perform many repairs yourself. If you decide the latter, start studying because there's a lot to know and figure on buying a clone.

Now you have 2 promotional threads to keep GDE at the top of the latest posts. How much is he paying you?

Not a promotion if you passed kindergarten (which apparently you didn't) and can read the title. Only GDE associates and affiliates (aka trolls) will read much past the headline.

I don't have any GDE compatible vehicles, but are willing to send him a few bucks to show my support.
