CUSTOMER REVIEWS.

Our centre star rating is based on customer satisfaction scores from real customers. It is based on information collated by BMW UK over the past 90 days of new car sales and aftersales service transactions, where the customers have subsequently elected to complete a satisfaction survey online or by phone. You will also see below customer comments, which are unedited.

I constantly had to chase for an update on my car at Arden. They said they would contact me and never did I was always the one contacting them

Service

In light of the fact that BMW Maidstone lied to me last year i am completely disatisfied with the service they have provided. When the problem was idenitified to them it took them over a week to resolve the problem.

Service

An air filter required for servicing was not ordered and the car was also not washed following the service. It took persistent calls and almost 2 weeks for the service to be completed. This is not the service I expect to receive from a premium brand

Service

At this point of contact,I have no complaints,everyone was helpful and kept to time etc.

Service

My service advisor Elise was efficient and I was kept informed of progress. Also l was given a lift to and from my home which was very helpful.

Service

knew their job

Service

Job completed on time and for the price quoted

Service

Took a bit longer than anticipated so had to wait 2hrs at reception before car was ready due to brake pad replacement taking longer than originally stated.

Service

The Staff were helpful and polite and the garage is well presented. I'm happy to continue with future serviceing.

Service

Happy with service. But, I was phoned to say car was ready for collection, when I arrived at Arden 45minutes later I was told it hadn't been cleaned yet, I then waited another 45 minutes for this to be done. Also courtesy car requires 8 weeks notice.

Service

Because I was completely satisfied

Service

As above, although I had some dealings with the service department on tyres pressure that was very good. My new car was sold to me with indifferent tyre pressures 3 of which were very low and over 1 bar lower than the recommended pressure.

Service

All my concerns were dealt with. (Only a couple of weeks after the service in question.)

Service

Courtesy car was not available even with my booking car in for a service over two weeks prior to the appointment

Service

I was told the car would be fully washed and cleaned inside as part of the service. This did not happen

Service

As above. Had to chase the dealer all the time and no one seemed to take ownership of my enquiry, or indeed appear to care.

Service

Received a phone call at 3 o’clock to say the car was ready, arrived at 3.25 and waited until 4.05 as the car wasn’t actually ready.

Service

All the estimated times and work duration were on point and I was in and out as quickly as was estimated. Everyone I spoke to was polite and extremely professional.

Service

let me know what the holdup was

Service

As I explained to the Service Manager:1) Total lack of communication2) No specific conversation took place regarding disconnecting my safety cameras 3) Was told I would get a call if the car was ready earlier - didnt happen4) Car was not cleaned

Service

Same as previous but would add that the lady on reception Christmas Eve when I arrived at just past 7 am was very helpful and made sure everything went smoothly on what is after all a bit of a rundown day.

Service

My car was brought in Arden by BMW assist so as I was at the garage I booked the car in for its next due service and told no curticy car till March , useless ! No Good doubling the size of the garage but keeping the same amount of curticy cars , ????

Service
Thank you for your response, please accept our sincere apologies. We will pass on your feedback to our third party company who organise the rental vehicles.

The actual service was carried out efficiently without any issues. As I mentioned above, my main concern is the inability to book an appropriate service at Arden BMW within a reasonable time period and the way prices have increased recently.

Service

I had a trye changed under the BMW price promise, very competive took a bit longer than a tyre shop, but much nicerer surrounds and good coffee plus a valet.Very pleased.

Service

From telephoning to make my booking to receiving my car back looking so well groomed makes for a satisfying service experience.

Service

I had an MOT, and end of warranty check done They said all was ok

Service

All checks & service work were carried out as discussed when I initially rang to booked the service . It is a pleasure to collect the car washed & vacuumed looking spotless

Service

Excellent customer service,. Staff are polite and courteous, keeping me informed and managing expectations in terms of the length of time the job would take.

Service

Booked for service/ winter wheels/tyres. Initial appointment cancelled due to fault on courtesy car but subsequently had choice of Saturday or Friday same week which was very satisfactory. Appreciated efforts to get alternative appointment

Service

Service

Go the extra mile

Service

Car was MOT'd while I waited, the test was completed without undue delay

Service

Service

Service

Mark always provides first class customer service

Service

When booking in the car, i explained several latent issues which were picked up during a previous service. Straight away I was told these were not covered under warrantly, without the matters being considered - agressive from the start

Service

Service

Good service, polite staff, reasonable charges

Service

Friendly staff and great service, reasonably priced.

Service

Customer facing team leave you with the impression that you as an individual matter.

Service

1. I asked if a brake fluid change would be carried out as part of the work and was told not so I booked with bmw specialist and then it was.2. Forgot to install a part3. My pre-requested old kit was forgotten twice and now having to still go back

Service

great service completed quickly

Service

Staff always friendly and attentive. Always take time to cover the things that you're not quite sure on and genuinely seem to have your best interests in mind.

Service

lack of courtesy cars stopped giving5 stars

Service

The time taken for service advisors to retrieve cars from the offsite service shop is ridiculous. I had to wait 30 min from the time my advisor left until he returned. Other customers had the same issue. This is unacceptable for BMW!

Service

Best experience on offer

Service

I wanted to complain about the second issue (the first was resolved at branch satisfactorily) but I was told to refer the complaint to head office. I did so and head office said they couldn’t deal with my complaint and to refer to branch!

Service

Car clean and all done as required

Service

On time and phoned when work completed as requested

Service

Excellent customer service, excellent communication, excellent work carried out on time, on spec, on budget. I only wish all business's ran like this!

Service
Thank you for your 5 star review, I am glad to hear after your minor issue all was sorted out and we met your expectations. I will pass on this positive feedback to our service department. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

good environment, nice service and friendly staff

Service

Dealer experience is good. Service team friendly and easy to deal with.

Service

Car was serviced whilst I waited within the 2 hour slot I was given, nice touch to give it a clean particularly as it was pouring with rain on the day of my visit but they did it anyway!

Service

As above plus the waiting area is of a high standard

Service

It met all my expectations

Service

Customer service is first class. Quality of serive mechanics is really poor,

Service

My car come in for service and fix back wiper as it works when it wants Car service was but back wiper still not working

Service

Service was not fully completed after having had the car for 7hrs approx. Damage done to ignition coils, and spark plugs not replaced as per service requirement.

Service

This is my 3rd BMW but after reciving such of poor service exp i am thinking to go else where now

Service

Very helpful at Arden but surprised no courtesy cars were available even tho service was booked a number of weeks in advance, first availability was a month after my service date.

Service

Emlyn the sales person we dealt with was brilliant. We went in unsure between two types of BMWs, he arranged for us to test drive both, gave us details on both choices and gave us his time and patience during the purchasing of the car and once again

Sales

Excellent salesman who was sympathetic to my needs, helpful, patient but did not patronise me.

Sales

Very professional service at all times from all departments that I dealt with.

Sales

Everything went smoothly and all my questions were answered very satisfactorily.

Sales

The salesman Luke Wilkinson was first class from start to finish.

Sales

Car in separate showroom with a personal welcome notice, made me feel special.

Sales

I was kept informed of progress and the car actually arrived 3 weeks early, in time for Christmas. The car was beautifully presented for an indoor hand-over, which made the whole experience personal and private.

Sales

At first I was told that I would have my car within 5 to 10 working days,but was very disappointed when it didn't happen and was told it wouldn't be till after Christmas 28 days.However Emlyn managed to get it by the 22nd for me . Well done Emlyn !

Sales

I WAS UNABLE TO COLLECT THE CAR BECAUSE I WAS IN HOSPITAL SO MY WIFE PICKED IT UP. SHE TOLD ME THE LUKE WAS VERY HELPFUL IN EXPLAINING HOW TO OPERATE THE CAR.

Sales

Had a problem with one wheel being scuffed which is not good on a £100k car. Overall there are issues with the car which must be put right. The sales team have acknowledged these and are dealing with it.

Sales

Everything happened as was expecting

Sales

Polite staff and informative

Sales

The sales man Charles was very helpful and don’t make you rush and look around at many diffract options what’s nice there was no presssur is sales talk But was promised a call after the weekend that we got the car but never did so a little unhappy

Sales

When at the centre - excellent customer service and very nice new showroom with private viewing area for orientation of new car. Answered all our questions thoroughly. Occasionally some issues with communication over the phone.

Sales

Very personable sales. Loved the hangar service for collecting the vehicle. Answered all my questions. Great treatment all round.

Sales

Nothing was too much trouble, no pressure, made the whole experience stress free.Again, when taking delivery, nothing was too much trouble, not rushed, everything about the car was patiently explained

Sales

The salesman Terry Linford was approachable, knowledgeable & friendly. It was a pleasure to have the sale handled by him. I would have no hesitation in recommending friends to go to Terry at Arden Maidstone to buy a BMW car.
