Looks like dealers cannot win.

I get these after a service or check and find them useful.

I would never crawl under my car, the video does show tyre wear across the width, suspension, exhaust and general condition of the underside of the car.

I guess you could just ignore it.

A 46sec video about the condition of my tyres is pointless as I got it in the written report.

To add insult to injury, I saw the car being taken out of the service area at 11:15 & at 12:15 (after I'd been assured I'd be gone by 12:00 when I booked the car in for a 2 hour window) I was still waiting ......, car was covered in greasy hand prints and they had not looked at the 2 (non service) items I'd asked them to look at. Apparently they were short staffed in the office.....pretty simple to ask the receptionist to tell me what I going on and ask for my patience. I was the only person in the waiting area and people that had arrived after me had already left. No excuse for poor customer service.

I would not have any objection to getting pics ( especially pics taken underneath the car :) ) I just put them in the File I keep for any car I have had. Can be a use full reference at a future date.
