This past Sunday, alternator problems left my car stalled on the side of the 101 in Thousand Oaks. We had it towed to Silver Star Buick GMC dealership and service center on the tow driver's recommendation. The repairs took until Tuesday. When I picked up my car, I'd already left Thousand Oaks when I noticed some items were missing from around my console. I called back to see if the mechanic could explain, but he guessed that no one in his shop "needed" a jar of quarters or pens, so they "probably" didn't take it. When I stopped, I discovered my entire trunk had been cleared out, save for some towels and other "junk" items. Apparently I have no recourse because I signed a document stating I'd removed all my valuables from the car and that the mechanics aren't required to notice things missing. Did they not notice items from inside my glove box strewn across my seat?
Apparently someone with the keys to my car OR someone who took advantage of it while it was unattended and unlocked on their lot managed to make off with all of the contents of my car (we're talking big beach coolers, a car jumper battery, a school backpack, a picnic basket, art supplies, bags of camping supplies, etc) without ANYONE noticing or ANYTHING captured on camera. Service manager. Dominic Coggiola, says they just don't have a camera pointed on their driveway, "so sorry!" Shame on you Silver Star.
