No word of a lie.

2001. I had just bought a new Audi. It had no end of problems from the beginning. On the phone to Audi UK.

Me: “I’d like to report a problem with my new Audi”
Audi: “Are you sure Sir?”
Me: “Yes, I’m quite sure”
Audi: “But it’s an Audi Sir”.

How about
"It wasn't doing that before you serviced it"
"It didn't make that noise before"
"Your mechanic must have done that"
"It fell off after YOU repaired it"

Garage mechanics/owners have a black book of these type of comments
