I have an ethical question for you -- would like to hear your opinions:
I recently stumbled on a web site for a company that offers products and services for certain cars, and on this web site they are promoting a product of theirs and using a photo of one of MY cars to advertise their product.
I don't know them, never did, and my car never received any product or service from them (not in my ownership, and not with any previous owner). On their web site, they have a heading for the product, and below it is the photo of my car, implying that my car has received this product/service, when in reality this particular part of my car is factory original.
The photograph is not mine. It was taken by the previous owner of my car and posted on a web forum back when he owned it.
Question 1: If you were in my shoes, would you say anything? If so, what?
Question 2: Does this make you question the vendor's integrity or honesty with regard to the rest of their products/services?
Now, to throw a bit of a curve ball . . .
I'm interested in that particular product, because I would like to do something about it on my very car that is pictured on their site! (ironic, no?
) There isn't much market for a solution to this issue with the car; it's not something that a bunch of vendors have or carry; there are a few scattered solutions for this, none of which are ideal or as good as the original. This one looks like it might
Question 3: They are offering a solution for what I would like to correct on my car; can I trust them?
Question 4: Should I not by on principle alone (assuming the product is worthy)?
What do you think?
