Complaint: I leased a 528 XI from JMK in 2012 and vouched for signing up for additional wear and tear coverage. For which i paid additional $800+. I was told by the accounting person doing the paper work and selling the additional add on packages that this would the wear and tear warranty included any damages for up to $5000 at the time of the lease end and included items such as (body damage, brakes and tires). When i returned the car at *** ** ************** they gave me a bill of $2250 which included damages to the windsheild ($600), front bumper ($400) and 3 Tires ($900) and deposition fee of ($350). I was covered for up to $5000 so i had nothing to worry but no i was wrong. I did pay the desposition fee which was not covered and i understand that. The coverage covered me for the Front Bumper ($400) and the windsheild($600) but not for the Tires ($900). When i called the *** *** they gave me a runaround first... later said i should contact the insurance company (********) i called them they said they do cover the tires but for the specific type of insurance i was sold its not covered in that. However, all *** wear and tear insurance cover tires - JUST NOT MINE. Since few months i have running between the JMK, Insurance company and *** Financial (after me to pay up the $900 balance). Now *** Financial has given my case to COLLECTION Agency who are after me for $934.75 ALL THIS EVEN THOUGH I HAD BOUGHT ADDITIONAL WEAR AND TEAR COVERAGE
Desired Settlement: I WANT SOMEONE FROM *** JMK TO CALL ME AND RESOLVE THIS ISSUE. EITHER PAY THE COLLECTION AGENCY OR ISSUE ME A REFUND ONCE I PAY OFF THE COLLECTION AGENCY. THE AMOUNT IN DISPUTE IS $934.75... ALSO THEY SHOULD STOP ADVERTISING WRONG INFORMATION AND MISLEADING CUSTOMERS INTO BUYING ADDITIONAL COVERAGE THAT REALLY DOESNT COVER EVERYTHING AS PROMISED.
****** S********** spoke to customer. Contact states tires are excluded. But, *** *** will send check to customer for half of Tire claim. Check will be sent to customer for $ 470.00. Customer has agreed to this.

Complaint: When purchasing the car I agreed to purchase wheel and tire insurance on the basis that the car is fitted with run-flat tires and per the manufacturer run-flat tires cannot be repaired in the event of a puncture, and the wheel and tire insurance would cover replacement of punctured tires. The car was a certified BMW from a BMW dealer - BMW wheel & tire insurance covers replacement of punctured run-flat tires as described above - JMK substituted aftermarket wheel & tire insurance from ******** (I do not recall this being made clear at the time of purchase, the sales invoice simply states wheel & tire insurance, and in the documentation package from the sale there is no ******** wheel & tire insurance literature). When I recently had a puncture and my local dealership contacted ********, they stated that they did not cover replacement of punctured tires - the promised benefit of purchasing the wheel & tire insurance through JMK and the sole basis for agreeing to purchase such insurance. I was forced to have the tire repaired at a third party tire shop so that the car was drivable in the short-term. I contacted JMK who acknowledged that the manufacturer believed this car to be dangerous to drive on account of the plugged run-flat tire and that it should be towed to the dealership, however communication between the sales and service departments at JMK was so poor I had to drive the car there myself regardless. JMK were candid that ******** changed their terms and other customers had had the same problem, and ultimately replace the tire at their expense on this occasion, however I am still left with a policy which does not perform the purpose it was sold for in the event of a future puncture and JMK do not currently appear to have any solution to this issue.
Desired Settlement: Replacement of the ineffective ******** policy with a proper policy from BMW that covers replacement of punctured run-flat tires. Failing that a refund of monies paid for this wheel & tire insurance.

Complaint: On January 30,2014, I took my 2001 BMW X5 for electrical diagnosis in order to find what was draining'juice' from the new battery to the extent that I always had to jump-start it every morning.They claimed that it was the trunk door lock that was causing the problem and that a particularunit must be replaced with a new one. I disagreed and did not want to have a replacement. Theservice personnel stated that their diagnosis machine would not allow them to "proceed" withfurther diagnosis if that unity was not changed. After more of persuasion, I told them to goahead and change it as long as the problem would be resolved. I had earlier brought it to theirattention that a spot-like parking light by the lever stays on all night after the engine had been turned off, stating that that could be part of the problem. After completing the repairsI asked if that light had been taken care of. I was told that the light will automatically "disappear overnight". I paid a total of $398.93 for this so-called diagnosis and repairs. 1) Thatparking light still stays on till today. 2) I drove the vehicle to work overnight on Friday,January 31st. On Saturday morning I had to jump-start it. On Sunday February 2nd I had to jump-start. On Tuesday February 4th I had to jump-start it. I have been using jump-start technique to start the vehicle EVERY DAY SINCE THEN. For, whatever they claimed to have done did not clear the problem. I gave them a call on February 4th to let them know that the problem had NOT been solved by the repairs they claimed to have made. They asked me to bring the vehicle. Two days later, which was February 6, I took the vehicle there. They said that I would need to live it with them overnight. Asked if I would be paying another $139.00 for diagnosis. They answered in the affirmative. This was a shock to me. I protested that they gave me a wrong diagnosis in the first instance and the problem was not resolved, and that I spent unnecessary amount of $398.93 for nothing.
Desired Settlement: I am NOT, repeat, NOT, prepared to pay them one cent more. They will need to resolve the problem by finding the right cause of the problem or give me my $139.00 back. I had wanted to seek redressby contacting all news media, newspapers, radio talk show, department of consumer affairs, etc. before a co-worker who had similar issue told me that a police officer called to the scene told her that she should contact the BBB, and then request her lawyer to seek redress from a court.Thanks.
Business Response: I SPOKE TO CUSTOMER AND RESOLVED ISSUE. JMK PROVIDED CUSTOEMR WITH A LOANER VEHICLE TO GET TO AND FROM WORK. VEHICLE HAS A SMALL DRAIN THAT WE ARE TRYING TO LOCATE AND FIX DIAGNOSIS WITH ELECTRIACAL DRAINS TAKE SOME TIME TO ICOLATE. CUSTOEMR IS AWARE AND UNDERSTANDS THE TIME NEEDED. JMK IS WORKING WITH CLIENT TO ADDRESS ISSUE AND RESOLVE THE PROBLEM.CUSTOEMR IS LEAVING VEHICLE TILL FRIDAY SO THAT WE MAY COLD START VEHICLE OUTSIDE AND CONFIRM VEHICLE IS FIXED CORRECTLY
Thank you for your ability to resolve the complaint. It was amicably resolved, and the Service Manager, Tino at JMK BMW, was great in his effort to take care of the issue.
