X5 Radio/Dash Buttons HELP!

So, recently my mom bought a used X5 and the radio buttons are all screwed up. All of the buttons seem to not do what they are labeled to do.

It's a 2004 X5 3.0i


The button where it says AM or FM don't work, instead, change to a preset station, while buttons to the left or right change AM or FM instead.

Basically, if you press a bunch of buttons you eventually figure out that it works still, just none of the buttons are labeled correctly, as if the wires got crossed somewhere inside. Not really sure how this happened, Carfax gauranteed there's nothing wrong, but knowing Carfax it may not be true.

Should we be worried? Is this easily fixable?

We still have until tomorrow to return it with no questions asked.
