Default Tread Quarter Issue Williamsburg Virginia

Took my 2005 Corvette in for new tires that I special ordered on Monday 7/18/2016. As I was being checked in I asked for my own peace of mind that they knew how to jack up a Corvette and was assured they did. Last night when I was washing the car i felt a rough spot under the rocker panel and discovered a crack in the fiberglass on the left rocker panel. I took in to Chevy dealership and the repair will cost me 409.76 .You could still see the grease smudge from the lift. I went back to tread quarters and just as I expected the young man that worked on the car said he didn't do it and didn't jack up the car there!!!! He did give me back the corvette vavve caps he "forgot" to return and I made no mention of the incorrect info he gave me that the tire pressure monitors would "learn " the car???? Its called lack of integrity!! Repair cost 409.76 !!

I make a point to care the jack pucks in my car. I make sure if it has to be lifted I talk to them about using the pucks and how to lift it. I've learned never to assume they know.

Sad it has to be that way!

Is the manager at least going to pay for the mistake of his tech?
