It really is a diesel, not a misbadged gasser. And yes the salesman filled it full of gas and drove it back to the store.

A Body Control Module on a 17 chevy duramax. Was parked next to a Ford, and the lightning jumped from the Ford to the chevy and fried it. 2 days in 7 modules later, still finding more crispy bits. Oh, the Ford didnt survive either.

It’s over $9000...

What’s actually broken: Upper oil pan, fuel tank, rear prop shaft, exhaust crossunder pipe, rear exhaust/muffler assembly, left front lower control arm..

What’s just cosmetically damaged, but needs to be replaced anyway because it’s a lease: front subframe, some heat shields and plastic undercarriage shields.
