Brian Jessel BMW knowingly sold me a new car that had been in an accident!
Purchased a new (400kms - they told me a sales person had been driving it) - X3 from BJ BMW. Months later I was in a minor collision -someone bumped me from behind at a red light. I took it to a local collision shop where they informed me that while they had it apart - it was clear that the vehicle had been in a previous accident - substantial enough to require declaring it. They provided me with pics of the previous repairs and I took these back to BJ. First they denied, then they played it down, then they said they have no record of it being repaired. Oddly, while it was in being serviced that day - they sent it over to 'their' collision shop, where someone there accidentally noted on the service form that it had in fact been repaired there initially - before I purchased it. A copy of that was inadvertently given to me at the same time they were still denying any knowledge of any accident or repairs while their sales guy was driving it. I've since learned that this sketchy practice is commonplace in the car industry - but really expected better from BMW. They even went so far as to say - 'well, you've been in an accident in it now too, so it really doesn't matter anymore'. Can you believe that!? My response was that - a) you are obligated by law to inform me it was in an accident; b) if you had done that, I probably would not have bought that vehicle - or if I had, I would have negotiated a much lower price. I guess that's the point though isn't it. So people - my advice would be to avoid Brian Jessel BMW -- you just never know what you're going to get!
