Owners of a Mercedes-Benz AMG S63, BMW M6, and Maserati Quattroporte destroy their defective vehicles when all they really needed was a lemon law attorney.
Frustrated by the fact that the dealer was not able to repair their defective vehicle, these three owners decided to publicly destroy their expensive cars. These videos, filmed in three different countries show infuriated owners of a Maserati Quattroporte, Mercedes-Benz AMG S63, and BMW M6 destroy their defective cars.
One thing that unites all owners is the fact that they were not happy with the service they received and their automobile dealerships.
Mercedes-Benz AMG S63
A report from Euronews states that an owner of a Mercedes-Benz AMG S63 destroyed his luxury vehicle in front of a Mercedes dealership in Gwangju, South Korea. The vehicle was worth half a million dollars in South Korea. It has more than 600 horsepower and accelerates from 0-60 in 3.4 seconds.
According to the source, the vehicle kept having engine related problems. The dealership was unable to repair it after several attempts. The owner, thus, requested the company to exchange the vehicle or refund the amount he paid for the car. After the company refused the refund, the owner decided to publicly destroy the car right in front of the dealership.
Next comes the owner of a BMW M6 that destroys his car for a similar reason. According to the source, the dealer failed to repair his car after 10 attempts. According to Japonlink, the owner, an Italian businessman, complained of vibrations, rattles, jolts, and bad shifts in his 120,000 Euro ($160,000) vehicle.
BMW Italy, however, refused to provide any remedy to the owner. He then decided to take the matter in his own hands. The owner then took his M6 to Frankfurt Auto Show, the largest auto show in Europe, and destroyed the vehicle for the public to see.
“I wrote BMW a letter – no answer. Now I’m answering [back]! With this action!,” the owner told the German paper Bild.
Daily Mail reported that a Chinese Maserati owner identified with his last name Wang, decided to publicly destroy his car as a sign of protest. The owner was reportedly experiencing problems with his Maserati. The car needed repairs and the owner was not happy with the quality of the repairs.
The source says that, Mr. Wang learned that during one of the repairs he was charged for a new part, whereas a used part was used by the dealer for the repair. This was the final stroke that caused Mr. Wang to setup the public destruction of the sportscar.
He reportedly hired a team of three to smash the Maserati with sledgehammers in front of the Qingdao International Convention Centre where an auto show was set to take place.
While we cannot comment on laws of other countries, California lemon law provides remedies for consumers when the dealer or the manufacturer fails to repair their car according to its warranty.
