History
Picked it up from a VERY well know Mid-Atlantic dealership that everyone raves about for some reason. After purchasing it, they dented the vehicle, denied it, and then turned their backs on me. I complained that the stock TD04 was going out and that I was experiencing a puff of smoke upon startup. As a result, they "inspected it" and stole my stock turbo heat shield then left the turbo return line disconnected causing an oil consumption issue and safety hazard that took years to identify. Vehicle was a Maryland vehicle.
