Questions & Answers

Mechanic Q: Media Inquiry: Car Vandalism?

I am currently working on a story about auto vandalism for and was have some general questions about vandalism and what it does to the vehicle. Thanks so much for your time. 1. What are some of the worst cases of vandalism that you have seen or heard about in regards to cars? 2. What exactly does putting sugar in someone's gas tank do to the car? Are there other substances that are put in gas tanks? 3. If acid or other caustic substances are sprayed on the vehicle, does this cause damage only to the paint or the metal underneath? 4. Any other information or tips about vandalism and a car would be appreciated.
