I will copy my first email to Classic below followed by an update.
I dropped off my vehicle on January 5 and, after a mix up at the loaner counter that Mr. Adamcik resolved, I was on my way. Mr. Adamcik kept me informed about the process and the delays from BMWNA regarding the parts required for the N63 repairs. While the vehicle was in for the N63 recall, I also had several other items I wanted checked including abnormal wind noise at the passenger front door and a wheel repair.
Unfortunately, when I picked up my vehicle on January 15, I realized numerous issues with the services performed. The passenger door wind noise was substantially worse and the "adjustment" performed resulted in a door that did not close completely. The latch was horribly misaligned and any one looking at it would have seen the 3/8" extrusion of the door from the body. Also, the wheel was not repaired. And, I noticed a high pitched whistling sound upon acceleration and a decrease in initial power delivery that was not present prior to the repairs.
Most concerning, I noticed a noise from the engine bay that was caused by an engine cover that was not secured properly. While affixing the cover correctly, I noticed that your technicians, in the course of the work performed, broke two plastic clips that hold vacuum lines on the engine. Also, lines were not secured in retaining clips and were misrouted. I discovered these issues with a just cursory glance. That was completely unacceptable and I am certain that the repairs were not completed properly. At a minimum, there is a vacuum leak in the turbo system resulting in the whistling sound and loss of power as a result of the repairs performed by your technicians. When I see such sloppy and careless work, I have to question whether all the repairs performed were completed properly. Given the severity of the issues, I find that utterly unacceptable.
I sent the above email to the GM and Service Director at Classic and I did receive a response from Chuong Nguyen, service director. He asked that I give his service department one more chance to fix the issues and I agreed. I dropped my X6 off on 3/2 and the Shop Foreman and Chuong met with me. The shop foreman agreed that the issues were unacceptable. He stated that the whistle was probably the active exhaust valve. During the SECOND week they had the car, they stated that the noise was normal. I refused to accept that and BMWNA got involved. 14 days later, Classic discovered that it was in fact a vacuum related issue, the pump they installed was bad. Oh, and the wind noise, that Classic stated was "normal" was easily fixed with a new seal. The old seal had a small tear in it. I would not let this service deparment fix my lawnmower.
To add insult to injury, I picked up my car to find that it was filthy, had numerous tar and grease blobs on the paint and had 12 miles of range left and no gas! I dropped it with over 1/4 of a tank. This dealership service department is completely incompetant and they clearly do not care about their customers. The manner in which my vehicle was returned was clearly retaliatory (or grossly incompetent).
I Recommend This Dealer:
David Adamcik, Chuong Nguyen
