Is there any truth to this? I had a service technician that came out yesterday to pick mine up to take into the shop, and he showed up in a Ford Escort wagon, and loaded into the hatch face down.....


I'm a little freaked out on this one.

it is generally not recommended, as this puts excessive stress forces on the plasma glass, so you're increasing your chances of breaking it. i've seen cringe-inducing pictures of the results...not good.


however, if it breaks, i would have to think the service tech/company would be held responsible. still, who wants that headache?

No potholes in your neighbourhood? No "street-calming". PITA hunks of raised/rounded asphalt to roll over on the way to the repair shop?


Anything that could cause a jarring reaction in the car might adversely affect a laid-flat plasma's glass. Too much stress on the glass. If at all possible, transport it upright in the backseat, covering it up with a blanket or somesuch - and use the lap/shoulder belts to secure it.
