No offense to any dealer mechanics out there, but I never put faith in the dealers work. I know I'm stereo typing and that I'll probably offend a few honest mechanics, but I don't think I'm off base by much.
I always do one of two things. First, fix it myself. Second, diagnose the problem so I know exactly what needs to be done. Dealership mechanics are paid on commission at a flat rate. A call-back just means more money for them in many cases. So to think that they did proper diagnosis with a DVM is not certain. If they got it to start they probably shoved it out the door and called you to pick it up.
