I actually did check the above mentioned items a few days later. King pins were tight, steering box was fine, tie rods had a very slight slop to them. So he was trying to rail me on it.i had to do that many times. and even had a firearm flashed a few times. you either push it away and sign a waiver or have it towed.
that is an insurance thing.
it merely needs to be out of spec. not necessarily ready to pop apart.
you never know when you are being 3rd party tested.
now that is with actual physical issues....
then there is the perfectly functioning side of things...where they are just stealing...sometimes its paperwork....somtimes its a hotspot in a tire.
my son just got a taste of that recently.......cost him 80 bux to have the tow company push his bike out of thier yard 20 feet to the trailer....
which is legal theft... but he fawked up by not having proper plates and insurance ect....
while it pisses me off.....i just make fun of him for not listening when he had the chance.
Had a ford dealer do it to my wife with her old taurus. They picked it up for an oil change and said "the brakes went to the floor" when they pulled it in the shop.
She called me freaking out cause they wanted 1100 bucks to fix it. I called them and when i really questioned them they said "it only happend once" and was fine after that. Total bullshit.
