    In front of a Mercedes dealership no less.

    He apparently had a point to make?

    It was a new car. No acceptable reason it should've been stalling out. Boo on the dealership for being jerks.

    The man responsible for the decision making was reportedly gone and so they couldn't resolve his situation then and there.

    Makes perfect sense to smash the **** out of your vehicle, in that case:upeyes:

    Judging by the display put on by the owner of the car, I'd be more apt to call him the jerk.

    Can you say "impulse control issues" and/or "anger management issues." This guy must be a prize to live with or work next to.

    See, I disagree about him being a jerk. Telephones work almost everywhere. You shouldn't have to wait for someones physical presence to perform an action.

    My brand new car stops on the highway in fast moving traffic. - Unacceptable. 20 days in the shop. - Unacceptable. Another 40 days in the shop after they thought they'd fixed the problem the first time. - Unacceptable. Deeming it fixed again and saying the dealership will swap it out for another if it happens again and then being unavailable when it does. - Unacceptable.
    Part of the premium behind paying for an expensive car is that you answer if I call you. You're being paid to be available and if for some reason you cannot be available you apprise someone of my situation and grant them the authority to act in your place. Heck, that's just part of running a good company. The world doesn't stop spinning because you have a meeting in Singapore and you do not inconvenience your luxury customers. Apparently at least a dozen other owners have had the same problem.
    So through my eyes Dealership - Jerks
    Golfer - Frustrated owner that used a golf club instead of 6 pipe-bombs

    No one's absolving the dealership or Mercedes of blame. They probably handled it poorly. Dealerships generally are great until there is a problem, then they suck. However I'd like to think a high end company's dealership would be an exception to that rule.

    The owner of the car is also a jackass. Justify his actions as you wish, but they're not justifiable as anything other than a prepubescent tantrum. I can understand why the guy would be angry, and I probably would be as well. But my avenue wouldn't be to destroy the vehicle.

    Really? I hope it says that in your sales agreement.

    My solution has been to contact the regional sales manager for the manufacturer, and copy the CEO of the company with the communication, which is always by certified mail.

    I've only had to do it a few times on luxury cars, but the response was instantaneous and quite satisfactory.

    Yup. Only someone with no adult problem solving skills reacts in a manner such as that. He fixed nothing.

    Say what you will about the original problem, but you have to admire the durability of that golf club.
