    Forget getting compensations. Expose the dealership. it WILL cost them a whole a lot more in business loss.

    I think any attempt at bringing the speeder to court would be a waste of time. There would be all kinds of ways to kick the camera footage out of court. Unless a cop witnessed the speeding he’ll get off. The thing I’d be pushing is that the hooligans were talking about the clutch burning. That right there says they know they were hurting the car and kept going for more.

    If they take care of you, then you can plug them on the follow up on the news about them being awesome, etc.... That's good advertising for them.

    I worked with the hudson county prosecutors office and medical.examiners office for a few years before leaving for the south. As soon as I saw the video I knew exactly where it was.

    Does JCPD drive Ford vehicles? Do they buy from Stevens? If the answer is yes you should be careful about trashing the dealership online.

    It's about abusing someone's property not speed. You get it?

    What, why? OP isn't doing anything illegal. It's not like this is defamation of character. I doubt the dealer will go out of business over this either, so the JCPD can keep their barn house. If cops in OP's area target OP's Mustang over this then that's some petty crap. This kind of stuff is on the news every day...

    I bet the local chief of police would also like to see that video of those morons going 75+ MPH through the neighborhood. Luck they didn't total your car or kill somebody doing that stupid stunt.

    I'd be smearing that dealers ass in every way possible !!

    This is a great example of where a dash cam pays off and shows its value. If you didn't have the footage it would be a he said she said game that would go no where, or you wouldn't even know it happened. I've been looking at getting a dash cam for some time, but now I'm defiantly going to get one.

    Side question, what wheels do you have on it? They don't look stock based on the pictures posted on the articles.

    Let sleeping dogs lie. I am not an attorney so I have no idea what can or can't be claimed, but why take a chance.

    The OP has every right to seek restitution for the damage caused by the reckless acts of the dealership employee. Going on the internet before seeking legal advise or seeing the big picture is a bit risky IMO.

    The tech has been fired and Stevens offered to refund the money.

    The damage has already been done so there is little chance the OP is going to get anything from Stevens now. What does Stevens have to gain now that the video is all over the internet.

    Sounds like a nightmare, I have the best tech at my dealership. I told them that I want to be there when my car is worked on, they got insurance approval for me to be in the shop and now I help him with any work that is done on my car as long as im wearing steel toes.

    Couldn't be happier with my dealer. Just saying this because there really are some dealers and techs who care about their work and cars and would be super annoyed seeing this happen to you.

    Go down there....always works for me. I tell them I'm NOT LEAVING then I go strike up conversations with other customers in the showroom service waiting room, loud enough to be overheard by pretty much everyone.....This has never failed me although I am 6'3" 250# and about half batsh!t crazy to begin with.
