BSM Successfully Challenges OEM Denials of Warranty Reimbursement Rate Increases

Over the past several months, BSM lawyers have successfully resolved warranty reimbursement rate disputes with BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Nissan. After following the procedures set out in each dealership’s respective state franchise laws and submitting a request for an increase in their warranty reimbursement rates, these manufacturers rejected those requests. 

BSM brought legal challenges against BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Nissan for each of our dealer clients to enforce state franchise laws which give dealers the right to be reimbursed for warranty work at the equivalent of the dealership’s retail rates. Each of those cases was resolved without the need for a trial or final hearing. 

These cases are the latest example of dealers taking advantage of the rights they have under their state motor vehicle franchise laws and exercising their right to challenge any failure by the manufacturer to abide by those laws.
