Nope. I'd rather take it to a mechanic, not a kid with a shop manual. The only time I go back to the dealer is for recalls or warranty work.

And I know more than any sales guy. Just five minutes on here qualifies you for that.
I'm with you on this one. I use dealers for test drives, but that's about it. They are shady and love to waste your time, I've walked on MANY deals from dealers, and I've always gotten a call back. I did all the negotiating and paperwork on my M2 before ever seeing the car, then I hopped on a plane, dealer picked me up, did paperwork, and left. This is how it should be. They did make me wait over an hour for the "manager" to be free, but she was just sitting in her office alone, so idk what that was about.

As for the work on the vehicle, if it's warranty work, then the dealer will handle it. Everything else I try to do myself, and if I can't, I know someone who can. Don't want to pay dealer rates for some dumb kid with tools to half-ass the job. I have WAY too many friends that work at dealerships, so I've heard their stories... No thank you.
