Additional Notes

Complaint Category: Failure to provide promised assistance or support for products or services

Complaint: Auto Masters of Clarksville sold me a vehicle that 3 months later needed a new engine. Salesman lied on several occasions and failed to fix as promise
Salesman at Automasters sold me a 2004 BMW X5- I placed 8000 dollars downpayment. 3 Months later the engine needed replacing. I was told I would be taken care of and the issue was never fixed. I ended up turning the car in as a Voluntary Repo after a month of the car sitting at the mechanic. AutoMaster failed to uphold the "We-owe" part of the contract - Auto Masters also failed to communicate with me truthfully on numerous occasions to include being told the car was being sent to BMW to be fixed which it did not. Automaster failed to stand behind their vehicle and their word to help me out when the vehicle had the issue. Now Auto Masters is saying I am still liable for the remainder of the balance on the loan even though the car is trashed and not in my possession.

Business' Initial Response
RE: ****** ******* contract *****

To Whom it may concern;
Mr. ******* bought a 2004 BMW x-5 on the 25th of March 2013. Mr ******* test drove the vehicle numerous times and had his mechanic over view the BMW before purchasing. Mr. ******* also bought a $3,000 warranty for the vehicle from an independent company.
Mr. ******* brought the BMW back to AutoMaster's after 3 months and many miles later complaining of problems to the vehicle. ****** Automotive and BMW of Nashville, TN both agreed that the V8 BMWX5 had valve cover issues. BMW will fix it at $70 per hour at 28 hours worth of work in which Mr. *******'s warranty will not cover.
Mr. ******* was made aware the vehicle would cost $1,960 plus parts. We offered customer a different vehicle in which he would be responsible for the down payment to cover taxes and title. Mr. ******* refused to do so. As you can see, we have the "we-owe" form that states the serpentine belt needed replacing and vehicle was sent to ****** for verification of this problem being fixed.
AutoMasters contract specifically states vehicle was sold "AS IS" and Mr. ******* signed four seperate places that insured him of the BMW not having a warranty and was being sold "AS IS". We went as far as to cover the financial difference to have vehicle fixed but Mr. ******* and his $3,000 warranty did not come to fluition.

Consumer's Final Response
