My rating is based on Craig???s work. He answered all my questions. He walked through the lot and looked at every truck with me until I found the one I wanted.

My first BMW. Fast, comfortable, roomy, and excellent fuel economy. I commute daily, and and impressed by the over 30 mpg mileage. Seat warmers, steering wheel warmer and awd make it a great winter car. Great car made from high quality materials, very dependable and efficient. Great handing is a no brainer its a BMW ?
As he always has, service advisor Chuck Griffith again went above and beyond for me providing exceptional customer service rarely found anymore these days. He understands that a premium ownership experience drives customer loyalty. I called him to make an appointment for a passenger power seat malfunction on my 2015 X3. He called to my attention that my warranty was going to expire in just 3 days. I thanked him, but told him there was no rush to get an appointment because had purchased an extended warranty from Germain BMW earlier in the year. He quickly reviewed the documentation for on file for my vehicle and reminded me that the extended warranty has a $250 deductible. With a genuine customer focused sense of urgency, he was able to schedule the service appointment for the we following day and provide me with his personal loaner vehicle which we needed because were rushing around with Dr. appointments, etc. prior to flying back to Milwaukee for the holidays, and have only one vehicle her in Florida. I am extremely grateful to Chuck for everything he did to save me $250 with such a small window of opportunity and making it so convenient for me. Like he has in the past, he made me feel like I am his only customer. And as a valued Germain BMW owner, he returns that loyalty with unparalleled service, support and convenience. Accordingly, my rating is a ???slam dunk??? 5 stars, and even higher if your rating scale allowed.
A reliable car for a young professional
by Greg from Bowie, MD

I was looking for a reliable car to start my professional career, something to get me back and forth to work without issue. This car is that car. It has great handling, the design looks good, and it has parking assist features. The only things that I dislike about the car are that there is no sunroof and that there is no navigation in my model.
As a Detroit woman who has enjoyed driving a stick shift for over 50 years, including a Porsche on a track at Sebring, I appreciated the acknowledgment John gave me in knowing cars and in finding exactly what I wanted without attempting to steer me in another direction when one was not available for about 6 weeks. The day a used vehicle like I wanted came in, he put my name on it and called me immediately. JJ knew I was sad about no longer being able to clutch without pain and was having to literally change gears to an automatic, so he highlighted the paddle options on the car to make it still fun to drive. Germain dealership also gave me a very fair price on my beloved Mustang. I could not be happier with the buying experience and subsequent service. Highly recommend JJ and Germain.
I love it.

The 328i is an excellent all around vehicle. From the exterior to the interior there isn't one feature of this car that will disappoint. This car handles like a fine tuned machine. BMW's are for road enthusiasts and I recommend this car.
It was nice to get beyond the dickering that one is always subjected to from car salespeople. Buying from the comfort of home was nice.
Certified preowned, 3 years down the road
by Lessona learned from San Luis Obispo

Having previously owned a BMW Z4, I knew repairs and maintenance are very expensive so I purchased a maintenance warranty at the time of purchasing my pre-owned BMW 328i. Little did I know that the brakes on the BMW 328i 2013 edition would last to 90k. Can you believe it? I can't, but that's what COAST BMW OF SAN LUIS OBISPO is telling me as my maintanence package was about to expire and I asked for (and was promised by the forder finance manager ). Oh, and that they only require oil change every 15,000 miles.....again what my on board computer tells the "service writer". Not much value to a $2600 maintanence package. I got 2 oil changes and 2 sets of wiper blades during the 3 years of the warranty period. I like the car, but dislike the "service" after the financing was done.
Vroom rushed me thru the process of purchasing a vehicle from them. Had strict requirements of receiving payment within 48 hours. I was rushing my loan department to get my paperwork completed ahead of other customers in fear of losing the vehicle I wanted to another buyer. The loan paperwork and a check had to be overnighted to Vroom to meet their qualifications. THEN CAME TIME FOR THEM TO GET THE THINGS I NEEDED TO ME!!! I HAD TO REPEATEDLY ASK ABOUT THE ARRIVAL OF MY TRADE IN TO THEIR FACILITY (which they kept telling me for 15 days that it hadn???t reached their facility??!! Yeah right)!! THEY DRUG THEIR FEET ON SENDING THE PAYOFF OF MY TRADE IN SO LONG THAT THE 15 Day PAYOFF THEY WERE QUOTED EXPIRED AND I HAD TO PAY THE DIFFERENCE FROM MY OWN ACCOUNT!! I WAITED 26 DAYS TO RECEIVE TITLE PAPERWORK!! BUT THE PAPERWORK THEY NEEDED FROM ME HAD TO BE SENT WITHIN 2 BUSINESS DAYS!! YOU SHOULD GIVE AS GOOD AS YOU EXPECT, VROOM!! I HAD TO KEEP REQUESTING A REFUND OF THE $500 THEY CHARGED TO MY CREDIT CARD TO HOLD THE VEHICLE FOR A WEEK!!! LASTLY, the 2nd person I dealt with following the sales person was RUDE.
My 550GT is 7 years old , the rear suspension had a slow leak, they installed new units at a competetive price to non BMW dealers and gave me a loner while the work was being done. Car came back cleaned like new !

Omen of the best car I have ever owned.
by Nei A. from OK

This car is excellent in performance and it’s a luxurious car that meets all my needs.
I love it and enjoyed driving it.
One of my favorite things in this car is it’s 4 cylinder motor that when driving in turbo mode, it is fast as you can think.
When you buy the car you are told how great the car is (and it is) After you buy it they take you in a room and try to sell you all kinds on extended service stuff ,car care. You are told you will spend over $6000 in service in the first 4 years. Now they tell you, your NEW car is a money pit. Leaves a bad taste. The service on this car should be an oil change every 10,000 miles and the first 3 are covered.
2015 BMW 328i

The car has met all my needs. I get the best gas milage in ECO Mode of any car I have owned in the past 10 years. In performance Mode the car performs as a BMW should, it is fast off the line and corners smooth as silk. This is my second BMW and I can't imagine driving anything else!
My concern is with the buying process. I feel that I was given misinformation by the seller. The car info stated there was no warranty on the car, but during the purchase negotiations the salesmen looked at the computer and stated that the car had a warranty until 11/2018 and therefore convincing me that the written information was incorrect. This issue came up at closing about the warranty and I told the closer that we were told the car was warranted until 11/2018. The closer met with the salespeople I was led to believe the warranty existed. 30 days later I had an issue with a coil needing to be replaced. I was told I had no warranty. The dealer paid for the coil replacement. Within 45 days another coil failed. Again I bring it back and the dealer says there is no warranty. After negotiations with the General Manager we agree that we will each pay 50% of the repair cost and I now have no further warranty. My disappointment is that the dealer could have fixed this at the day of closing and I am not sure I would have purchased the car. The dealer has some work to do to repair my relationship before I would purchase another car from them. The service people did an excellent job. I feel the General Manager was fair with me under the circumstances as he was not in the employ at this dealer at the time of my purchase. I do feel that the dealership has some work to do with its sales force making sure the company's integrity is more important than an individual sale.
I had an issue with the roof closing on my 428i. I thought it was probably something simple (a computer program glitch or electrical switch issue) but it had to be fixed immediately because I was leaving town the next day for a few weeks. I called the Service area and asked specifically for Christian Hoza who helped me in the past. I described the problem. He also thought it would be easy to repair and told me to bring the car in right then. I had no appointment but was delighted to get the response I did. Long story short, Christian met me when I arrived in the Service area. He immediately took care of me, kept me appraised of what was happening and in two hours I was driving home with the car repaired and washed as well. I cannot praise Christian enough. He is a real asset to Germain BMW. What a great dealer!!
