Just kidding
Kidding about what? There are no free rides, even the lot boy has a price. Many buildings are leased, inventory is on a floor plan, after 90 days that car is costing them $$$ just to sit if it doesn't sell. Tools particular to certain vehicles aren't free or cheap.

Dealers R all the SAME--we have all heard Horror Stories about Women getting RIPPED off at Dealers.
Wifey took Acura MDX to dealer for Factory Service and was told that it needed Brakes & Rotors (17,000 Miles) plus Front end alignment and they would B glad to do it while she was there for $ 879.00.
She declined and took it to a Local shop and was given a clean Bill of Health.

They prey on the FEAR Factor by mentioning Brakes, Tires etc as they know all ladies are familiar with those items and know that Bad things can happen if they R defective

The word ALL is painting a pretty broad brush, to the tune of 10s of thousands of dealerships across the country based on the experience of one person. Not to mention it may not even be a reflection on that entire dealership, but rather a lone crooked service writer.

If the manager at my shop found out about something like that a head or two would roll.

By that logic, ALL ffls are crooked because one tried to force me to buy a bore lock from them instead of bringing my own...
