2004 BMW 530 Repair Question
2004 BMW 530 Suspension torsion bar
I have a 2004 530I with 60,000 miles. I bought the car from a BMW dealership with 100,000 warranty. as I speak, its in the BMW dealer repair shop and i have been told that the torsion bar needs to be replaced at a cost of $730.00 and it is not covered because BMW says its a wearable part.
Firstly, I think its a very gray area that its a wearable part.
Secondly, if its a wearable part, why was it not replaced [like most parts] prior to the sale of a certified BMW car like other parts [brakes etc]. cant have it both ways.
While I have agreed to have the dealership do the work, i will talk to the General Mgr. at the dealership. I would be interested to what everyone thinks about this situation..
This is rather curious because BMW does not utilize torsion bars, do they mean sway bars? If so, I would be interested in seeing the printout of the final bill as well as an explanation for the repair and why they are not standing behind a CPO warranty, even if only for goodwill, do not tell me goodwill does not exist for a 4 year old BMW.
