Should I buy a Trade Assist vehicle that has been fixed?
Found a great BMW X3 at a great price at a used car dealer, test drove it, checked with BMW on warranty coverage, clean Carfax, asked the right questions, after making initial offer, sales mgr tells me car is a trade assist they purchased at auction. Fuel sensor, tank other stuff repaired. Stay away or try and get a great deal? Low miles....
Be very careful buying one of these, they are actually lemon law vehicles that were caught before the law was in acted by the previous owner by BMW. even though the car fax maybe clean the BMW vehicle records will show trade assist, so when you try to trade it in for another vehicle that will show and your trade in value drops considerably. If you are still thinking about this, have the dealer show you the BMW vehicle history report and then make your decision. Personally I would run away from this one.
I agree with Tennisshoes, run away as it is not worth the risk.
I had a dealership in Ma sell me a 2013 BMW X3 they told me it was the demo car so it had some miles on it. Initially there were problems with the title (they lost it) had to order duplicate and I thought everything was ok. Fast forward to 37k miles and turbos need to be replaced. I have since moved to CT and having it serviced at another dealership and they informed me that it was a trade assist vehicle. Does anyone know if they had to disclose that and what recourse if any I have?
