Abused while shipping?

Hello everyone, new and first post of this forum. Few weird things going inside my head. You guys are the only way I can clear all those issue. I am just 2-3 months away to buy a brand new 86 and I am from New Zealand. I heard car gets abused while do shipping from Japan assembly centre to our dealers. What is your opinion on this case? How much I have to worried about this kind of cases. Thanks in advance.

You mean sexually? Don't worry about it. Just get the car tested for any STDs (sexual transmission defects) and just wipe the interior down with some disinfectant.

My car was a rescue. It was fingered by a preppy teenage boy till his buddy's give him shit for fingering a car of color.

I came in and treated my car as a proper sports car. It had the shitty tires and ***gy hella fuck stance look along with lame ass drift charms.

My car as sever ptsd when ever it's next to "stance" cars. My car feels safe along side my MR2 turbo only because it's been in wars and killed a few V8s in its life. If it wasn't for my MR2 my BRZ would have committed suicide.

That being said, I highly recommend you never to buy 86. Spend your money elsewhere. You don't need all this drama of a suspected molested 86. Some will never tell you they been abused they will live with it for all its life and it will show its ugly self one day.

Sadly most the abuse is brought on because they dress super sexy. Those sexy lines and those sweeping curves will make any person want to get inside them and ride them hard.
I admit at times I do become rough with her, enough to where her tires screem. But she's cool with it from time to time.

So yeah. Don't bother with 86.
Get a proper V6 or V8 sports car. Even a turbo 4 banger is way better than a molested 86.
Best of luck to you.

Hold up, OP said weird things. Sex with cars and doing donuts isn't weird. I think he meant like licking the tailpipe like people are doing now with ice cream.
Maybe weirder like hiding notes in the car on how the demons that haunt their dreams tell them to wear women's undergarments, never bathe and seek out what is in Area 51!

Can it happen? Yes. Does it happen? Probably. Is it common? No.
People love their cars and think everybody else do as well. Keep in mind that the people moving these cars around during shipping do it hundreds of times a day. It is their job. If they screw up too often they lose that job so they take it easy on the cars. When you get a new car with 20 or so miles on it there simply is nothing that they could have done to hurt it in any way in the few minutes they drove it. Car are shipped with just enough fuel in the tank to make it through the shipping process. There isn’t enough to go on prolonged red line joy rides.
Don’t worry about what your new car has been through since it will be a boring mundane experience.
Never buy a demo car unless it is dirt cheap. Those poor things can be beat to hell very quickly.

Yeah @Tcoat pretty much summed it up and ruined all the fun. Still wipe that tailpipe since there's no telling who had their tongue all up in there.

It was a reasonable question.
Just hope that this dude isn't the delivery driver. He apparently get's around.

Don't listen to any of these people. The 86 is a slut. She asked for it and enjoyed it.

Hello alone1i and welcome to our "funny" forum -

Congratulations on your decision to purchase a new 86 -

As @DarkPira7e mentioned, just do a close pre acceptance visual inspection of the car.

Relax, you are just suffering from the pre purchase jitters. Prozac and/or CBD oil may help -

not sure why you are worrying about something you have zero control over. pop a xanax or something and enjoy your car when you get it.
