When Mechanics Attack

Taking your car to a repair shop is like going to a doctor. You expect to be treated professionally and have your problems fixed. But sometimes doctors make terrible mistakes, such as amputating the wrong leg or leaving a scalpel in your body. Mechanics are no different. Here are some extreme examples of mechanics gone bad:

You would think most me chanics would be extra careful when it comes to exotic cars. These pictures prove otherwise. Here's a $300,000 Bentley Azure "resting" on its side.

Most mechanics will test the car out after a major tune-up or repair to make sure everything works correctly. Some take the test a little too far...

Like the mechanic who drove this Acura NSX up to 110 mph and crashed it through a fence.

... or this mechanic who lost control and drove a customer's Lamborghini Diablo up a curb and into a wall

This mechanic had just finished fixing a small scratch on the side of this $450,000 Porsche Carrera GT. Of course he had to "test" the car out to make sure the car was still aerodynamic. Too bad he made the problem worse.
