Okay....I found out what the mistery-ghost-car-in-barn is....and its a good one! Up close and clearing away junk from the front end it turns out to be a 71-75 Caddy deville 4 door, doesnt even seem to be in that bad of a nick.....who the hell just leaves that laying around?
They're called stealerships for a reason.
Also, is she certain that she actually got a timing belt change? Or might they have just charged her for it and just claimed they did it instead of doing the work?
Considering doing it requires dismantling literally the entire engine and a cheaterbar longer than the car, and she dropped it off at close last night and picked it up at 8AM, I'm going to go out on a limb and say they changed the oil.
Period. Unless they have some illegal Mexicans work through the night (which is a distinct possibility).
Yeah. Moral of story: Always require a shop to show you the removed/replaced parts and tell them of this when you drop the car off. No evidence, no pay.
