We have contentended from essentailly day one that this unscroupulous husband and wife team and owners ( Randy & Gayle Tashman) and the salseman that day of King of All cars LLC, has failed to diclose the oil pan leak during our brief inspection of then car which happen to be on a Sunday, where THEY agreed to open the small dealership that day, so we couldn't get or take the car to an UNBIASED mechanic to thouroughly check the car for this defect let alone ANY other major defect(s). So, right there we had to take the salesman and owners whom we contacted a few days later on their word that the car was OK Mechanically.
The Salesman Chris, claimed the car was JUST low on oil from "sitting around" and just needed a little oil and the OIL LEVEL light indicator would go off, which remianed on during our rushed inspection of this vehicle, which "allegedly" only had 85K miles and I have to admit along with our 17 year old son whom we purchased the car for, was cosmetically very clean in and out and was the PRIMARY reason we went to see it and would purchase it on a Sunday, since they oddly would opened up the business just for us on that day.
At any rate, we had to wait until the following week to get the car checked out by our OWN mechanic. We brought it initially just for the OIL ChANGE and to get scanned for the error codes for any other issues they may have NOT brought to our attention. After that "1st OIL" change which was a few days after the purchase, the certfied mechanic we took it to immdiately informed us we had a pretty bad oil leak that would ONLY get WORSE. I then contacted the OWNERS above and told them about the problem.
Of course, they denied it over and over and basically said they used the car periodically but never once saw any oil on there driveway! Of course NOT.. as BMW's have covers underneath that MUST be removed to reveal the leak. Otherwise, it would just collect in the large pan underneath, as was the case. The OWNERS only agreed to "allow" us to take it to their own mechanic even though we thought that was UNFAIR and a conflict of interest, we went along with it. The irony is, their own mechanic admitted and showed where he believed the leak was coming from.
The Oil Pan Gasket and to fix that on a 325 BMW would be an ALL DAY at least a 7 hour job because of many components that had to be removed to get to the pan and change the $5 gasket. I told him to tell the owners (his business associates) what he told me was wrong and what the repair would cost for LABOR and parts. I NEVER HEARD back from the owner and when I did ( I have the e-mails) he now says his mechanic told him the car had a small leak and that was it.
In any case, he and his rude wife, refused to PAY for the ONE repair he failed to disclose to us. That is ALL we were asking and rightfully so, since had he been HONEST and told us about the leak "period" I would have NEVER bought the car for almost $9000 or wpould have asked for a reduction in the PRICE to offset ONLY the OIL REPAIR! ISince I contacted almost every State and Federal Agency with our issue//complaint against Randy tashamn and King of All Cars, LLC , he became very resentful and now told me he would do NOTHING for me since me nor my wife who was and still is battling cancer as we speak BECAUSE we filed several complaints. The problem is since all this time went by awaiting on responses fronm the agencies that I thought were suppose to HELP people with a legitamate complaint like we had. They did VERY little to help us and the owners twisted the truth and convoluted the REAL issue here.
Now, they would make us "the buyers" look like the bad guys. They went as far as to go to their local police dept in Howell NJ and outright lied and had the audacity to tell the police that we were harssing them and threatening them when in actuality it was totally the other way around. Besides the DECEPTION and OIL LEAK ISSUE, as if that weren't enough, I have close to 35 e-mails that clearly will show that "owner" Randy Tashman and his Wife Gayle Tashaman are very UNPROFESSIONAL AND USE DECEPTIVE PRACTICES that SHOULD definately put them OUT of the business of selling of cars to the public and honest consumers like ourselves.
Furthermore and out of spite he kept the license plates after his salesman promised to FED X them to us because we lived quite far away and moreover because I was disabled and my wife was going through her mastectomy at that time. SO, on top of ALL the stress he has put on my wife and family I had to send my 17 yr. old son Joey down there to personally pick-up the plates despite what we were told when we handed over $8600. $4000 in cash and the $4600+ in a check.
Since his paperwork that Allegedly "he thinks" protects hima and prevents me from filing a lawsuit in small claims court "after" we PAY for the expensive repair, he is in for a surprise just like I told the Howell twp. Police Officer that this Randy Tashman/Owner actually had CALL ME about harrassing him when the truth is this whole thing totally and ONLY INVOLVES CONSUMER FRAUD just as the 2 attorneys I just consulted with told me, I can get him on if I choose to get reimbursed at this point. Well, now that my son has told me the car is now smoking and reeking of oil because it is obviously dripping on the manifold or hot exhaust/component, I am taking the car in for 2-3 estimates and evaluation since I did NOT trust his OWN smalltown mechanic who he initially reffered me to.
I might ADD , we were ALSO denied the CAR FAX , why? The car is pending the inspection by 2 -3 NJ certified and REPUTABLE BMW mechanics for the extaent of the damage done, if any, from the OIL LEAK and to determine WHY there is so much sludge that can be seen from the valve cover?? Obviously the car was taken care of Mechanically. End of Story. Then after I get the BILL OR RECIPET "if we decide and it's worth fixing" I will file a small Claims Civil Suit in Momouth County Superior Court even if it inconveniences me to appear in court down that way. I already spoke to the court clerk and I can file just by printing out the Forms on-line at their web-site after the car is repaired OR can be repaired, which is when I will contact the a lawyer again. I have 2 years to file a civil suit for Consumer Fraud.
