Went to pick up my 07 335i (CONTINUED!!!)

If anyone recalls I posted a story about picking up a 07 335i at BMW of Roxbury, NJ. I spoke and emailed them several times and agreed on a price of 26k and went to pick the car up the next day (or so I thought). I had to travel almost 3 hours to get there, and upon arrival they let me know the car was bought the night before.... (now the continuation).


I saw that the car was still up on cars.com, autotrader.com, their website and then the kicker.. I saw a brand new add I week later advertising the same car on craigslist. soo.. I had some friends email them (along w/ myself) ask info on the car yesterday (leaving phone numbers etc..). Then this morning the emails and phone calls start coming in.. "good news, the car is available, when would you like to pick it up?" So finally I call them back.... I talk to a salesman and ask about the car.. "why yes it's available", I ask twice if he's sure, I even made him go out physically check to see if the car is actually there. Finally I brake out my story from 10 days prior and demand to speak to a the sales manager. "Well, he's in a meeting..". I refused to hand up and ended up waiting 30 minutes being promised a call back. The salesman even tried to tell me, 20 minutes into the wait, that he discovered the car was sold (as I told him), but the owner didn't come to pick it up yet. But then I mentioned the fact that he told me 3 times the car was available, confirmed visibly and I had maybe 5 emails stating the exact same thing (from 3 different salesmen).. Anyways I never got a call back from the dealership. I have since filed my 2nd complaint w/ BMW corporate and just filed a complaint w/ the NJ Attorney General's office.

BEWARD BMW OF ROXBURY.. and don't call about this car:

What?!!! Let it go?!!! The guy is owed some thanks for sticking with this. Who knows how many other people are getting suckered by this tactic? And while it's possible he's doing this out of sense of revenge rather than altruism, he's got a right to be pissed. They seriously wasted his time in a manner that smacks of disrespect at best and dishonesty at worst.

Wow... I was actually looking at that car too for my mother in law, and I was thinking it's pretty cheap for the shape it's in. Glad I did not waste any time going out there to take a look at it.

Good job on finding out about this scam, don't let up and make sure the AG follows up. Report them to thee Better Business Bureau as well. And we all should vote with our money and avoid BMW of Roxbury.

Yes, invest the time. Pain of finding the right car, and I am sure everyone would then understand how it feels to not have it and not let it go to someone else either.

My commiserations OP.

sometimes you also want to be done with it, and it becomes more of a quest to figure out why you were refused. Not that the same car is the only thing available, its stressful and pisses the buyers.

CAs and dealers who do it, SUCK!

A friend had a similar experience in Pacific BMW in Glendale, California.

This needs to be posted on in the OT section in supraforums and nasioc. Get a couple of forums calling them about the car. This could be epic!

It wasn't that I just wanted the car (although it was a very good price for the mileage etc..). It was the fact that they knew I was driving 3hrs (160 miles) to buy this car. They had no problem leading me to believe it was available, when they knew it wasn't. I guess I have always just held BMW dealerships at a higher standard.

If you want to see a humorous email, check out the punctuation and grammar by one of their sales reps.
