Oh boy...

So had the X5 for a week. 2010 CPO low miles. Determined that bad bodywork as been done on passenger door and found that a poor repair has been made to the interior plastic on the door panel....it appears that someone maybe filled screw holes and then filled and painted them....oh and the rear power liftgate just stopped opening and closing last night. Heading to dealer this week. Fun times.

With the rear liftgate, make sure the bottom part is properly closed. Sometimes people almost have to "slam" it shut. That only really applies if it doesn't close. Yours sounds like it's not opening?

Hey Brian...yeah read every post in the book on the liftgate. It latches, locks and unlocks...but zero movement and no motor noise.

are you saying the dealer CPOd a car with substandard repairs? Are they now saying the BMW warranty will NOT pay to cover issues due to the prior repairs?

be careful. and good luck!

Protect yourself. Please understand that the BMW dealer does NOT speak for BMWNA.

You should look up the acutal CPO Inspection Criteria....not the CPO brochure, but the details of what the dealer should inspect. Did they give you the completed CPO checklist? Complete and signed? This is a requirement.

I'd force them to unwind the deal.... they'll promise you to make everything 'right', but do you want to trust them?

Thanks Ard...appreciate it. I do have the signed checklist and will check it out when I get home. I don't remember any commentary about this. What perplexes me the most are the repairs to the passenger door plastic...what, how, why was someone filling and painting holes in the door panel plastic...they look like screw holes. Maybe damaged when they took the door apart.
