I'm sure the insurance companies will have them sold or auctioned to third party companies who can repair them sell them in the used car market! In US BMW has the highest resale value more than Honda and Toyota. BMW itself might not have time to do all this.

Kudo's to Mazda for taking the consumer-centric decision, but an equal amount of brickbats are due to BMW. How dare they claim that the cars will be repaired and sold as new? Damaged goods are damaged goods....at the least, potential customers should be informed of the mishap and given a better price.

Some cars might be like fender-benders. Just replace the bumpers, fenders or fix the cosmetic damages and they all look new.

Thats a good move by mazda. This would go a long way in terms of their brand value. Am sure there will be a lot more mazda buyers after all this.
