A few months ago we posted a story about Ford dealership employees going for a ride in the Customer’s Mustang and being caught on the BlackVue dashcma installed in the car (unfortunately, the video was since removed from YouTube).
Today, we bring yet another example of the Ford dealership’s shenanigans, this time also caught on BlackVue DR900S-2CH (available for purchase here).
Both the previous story and this one were covered by Jalopnik (read the article here). Interestingly enough, it was that previous article that prompted Karol to install a dashcam in his Ford Focus RS. He did it before taking his vehicle to the dealership urged by the recall notice by Ford (head gasket replacement).
And turns out it was a very good thing he did that – as the dealership’s employees decided to organize an impromptu driving class in the Customer’s car. You can hear the entire process and the contents of the “driving stick 101 lesson” in an over 10-minute long video Karol uploaded to YouTube.
The dealership is yet to make an official statement about the case, but Ford Focus RS’ owner was contacted by them privately to resolve the issue.
The story sparked a debate in the comments under the article:
As pointed out by the above comment, even having a dashcam is not a guarantee that you will be able to catch the culprit. Thankfully, we have a solution for that – BlackVue Tamper-Proof Case that can be fitted over your BlackVue dashcam. The case will prevent any unauthorized person from messing with the microSD card or the dashcam’s wiring. Learn more about our Tamper-Proof Case here!
