I don't want to be critical but...(I WILL, that's just me)......alot of this is due to regular hard working guys that work at the port of entry and depending on what port your vehicle was delivered to could mean the difference between someone who is paid fairly, or maybe in the case of a non-union port someone who has fake documents/visa/etc. and just doesn't know any better. I really don't know what to say about this, but the regional distributors are surely aware that any problems will be resolved at the dealer level, (UNDER WARRANTY). So they (DISTRIBUTOR'S) will continue to do whatever their personal ethical boundry allows.
