Stupid Things We’ve Been Told About Our Cars…By Dealerships

At some point in our lives, we all hear a bit of bovine by-product which is as far-fetched as it can be — but delivered in complete earnest by the person informing us of it.

In the plug-in car (and mainstream automotive) world, it’s become fairly common to hear dealerships, politicians, and sometimes even the media come out with some truly ridiculous claims that should have us chortling all the way to the funny house.

Earlier this year, I experienced some for myself when visiting a Chevrolet Dealer. I was told using non-OEM tires on my car would void the warranty and risk damaging the Bolt EV’s regenerative system.

So what silly things have you been told — and how did you respond? Leave us your best ones and maybe we’ll do a holiday special of the ones that make us laugh the most!
