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 !
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.
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.
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.
