Dude first body shop I ever worked at the owners sone took a 95 TUBRO RX7 out for a weekend of racing tires bald and car was ran hard as hell. Owner of the car never had any idea, it was his sons.... WTF I notice if the move my air vents to get the air off of them... But you have to watch that stuff I am at a dealership now and people same some of the weirdest things and we test drive yeah of course. But some people swear we go 20 miles or so.. then others want us to drive there cars home with us to hear the noise or check engine light to come on...

You sure they drove your car? j/k

I have a standard routine when dropping a car off at a dealer for recall or service. Turn off radio, climate controls etc. If you are short..you may want to push the seat back for them as well.

I had everything off when I dropped it. Including the stereo. It was off when I picked it up, but on a different track and volume.

Well now.. at least they didn't leave garbage in the car after their little jaunt. This isn't one of the normal places you go where you know the people?

That explains it.. you promised them a little fun and didn't give them a ride...
