Dealer shares mileage information with insurance companies
During a conversation with my auto insurance company this morning about annual miles driven, I discovered that the insurance company had records of mileage and service dates for both my Mercedes cars that I get serviced and repaired through a Mercedes dealer. This information was being used by them to calculate annual miles driven.
I was shocked to find out that this information was being given out by the dealer without my permission. I have written to the service manager demanding an answer.
Is anyone else aware of this practice?
