.

I recently bought a BMW 335i with 24000 miles on it from Carolina Motor Cars and traded mine in. When I bought the car the salesman told me that it had been in an accident, hit a curb and that they had to replace some plastic to make the car right. I normally wouldn??t buy a car that had been in an accident but I felt like I was getting a fair deal.

When I took the car to Leith and had a tech look at it, he discovered that the front bumper was not the original bumper? lots more plastic than I would have imagined after hitting a curb. Also he noticed that the strut springs had been pushed up so hard that they actually dented the inside of the car under the hood, finally he discovered that the driver side door wasn??t closing properly(neither of them) and found over spray under the hood on the strut tower ( the part that holds the shock at a particular height and angle) and in the door jam. I told him I notice that the passenger side head rest would vibrate at a certain speed and he said that that was a symptom of a high speed impact to the front of the vehicle. I bought a car fax( a little late now but I asked to see one at the dealership the way the commercial says but don??t think I saw it) and it said that there was an accident??s last xmas to the right side but this was fresh paint overspray on the left.

I called Carolina Motor Cars and explained that I was unhappy. They said that we could talk about it and when we did I asked if they could discount the price of the car based on the fact that it way worse than even they knew ( or they played dumb real well) and that the damage did in fact have an impact on how the car rides now. They had the nerve to offer to pay for of the repairs if I let their repair guy do it. Everyone in the business knows that body shops will inflate the bill so the customer ends up paying for it all. I wanted a discount and they want more money for this wrecked car.

They said they would have their expert look at it and assess the damage but I can??t trust them now to do it fairly based on the fact that they screwed me once already. Buyer Beware of Carolina Motor Cars
Check engine light came on day 3 and it been at the local bmw dealer since. Intake and exhaust camshaft bearings are bad and need replacing. Waiting for parts from Germany and driving a Cobalt now.

Pros: Fair price if the car is not wrecked and poorly repaired

Cons: Car fax doesn't tell the whole story.
