I bought a car that was supposed to come with new floor mats that were supposed to be sent to me later and were not.
On 12/23/15 I bought a 2013 BMW X3 from ****. I live in New Orleans and made the deal by phone, then drove there to pick it up. They told me before that the car would come with new floor mats, but when I got there they told me there was a mix-up in shipping and the mats weren't there. I was then told and given a receipt saying that they would send the mats to me in New Orleans. Two months later, they still haven't been sent, but more disturbing is the way I'm treated whenever I call about it. I am always left on hold for a long time and each time I call they have been more and more rude to me. The last time I was asked if I was the "Chinese guy" because I have an accent. If this was a problem with a local place, I could just go there and clear it up, but it's not. The car is great, I just want what was promised in the deal without having to beg for it and be subject to people who don't know what's going on every time I call. In two months I have gotten no response from messages or voice mails left concerning the matter. I was supposed to get tan mats at a cost of $130, which was to be paid by Dewey Barber Chevrolet. The serial number of the car is VIN *****************.

Desired Settlement
I want the floor mats promised by phone and by contract mailed to me as they were supposed to be when I bought the car and found out they weren't there.

Business Response
The floor mats have been secured and are being shipped to the consumer. We were forced to wait until the vehicle was registered, which, for some reason, was delayed by the consumer. Once that was confirmed, the financing was finalized and the floor mats were shipped.

BBB promotes truth in advertising by contacting advertisers whose claims conflict with the BBB Code of Advertising.

BBB asks advertisers to prove their claims, change ads to make offers more clear to consumers, and remove misleading or deceptive statements.


What government actions does BBB report on?

BBB reports on known government actions that are relevant to the business's marketplace dealings with the public.
