Poor service regards speed, locating fault( bad mechanical diagnosis) and provision of courtesy car.

Service

It really depends on who you deal with. I spoke with a salesperson called Luke who is absolutely excellent. Some of the others do there job satisfactory but it seems as if they are not fully committed.

Service

The car went in for a recall, it had to be done. I asked in advance for the car to be washed as I had my MD out with me the next day, second service visit, second time yet again the car was not washed!! This was frustrating especially as I asked.

Service

work completed on time and car cleaned

Service

The dealership have done nothing to compensate me and my family from the damage they caused to my vehicle.

Service

Service was completed on time. The service record was not initially updated in the vehicle and I had to return , but this was rectified promptly while I waited.

Service

The recall work was done quickly and I was kept fully informed about the process and timescales.

Service

Over the years I have had four, maybe five, BMW's. They have all been comfortable, reliable and have served me well. Arden is perhaps my nearest BMW dealer.

Service

Not all issues were sorted on visit but plans were made for more detailed assessment at a later date

Service

Courteous and helpful.

Service

My car was returned with dirty seats after being recovered on behalf of BMW

Service

Terry was fab!

Service

Car was serviced well and given a clean bill of health.

Service

I had to return hire car and collect my one. This could have been done for me. service centre was professional but busy so had to wait. However they were very diligent and not only fixed issue but also fixed a separate recall issue without me asking

Service

Se oreviiys comment

Service

Good service as you would expect, just points mentioned above brought it down slightly.

Service

Perfect work

Service

Arden are pretty good. It does depend sometimes on the person you are assigned to for the service. As my X5 was subject to a recall relating to a battery lead ? I asked whether it would be possible to test the battery for capacity - £80 crazy ?

Service

As always, very thorough with servicing and inspecting the vehicle - raising any necessary points.

Service

There was some confusion after I booked where I was told my car did not have service inclusive when in fact it does which was caused by the centre still having my old car on their records not the new one which is on the same private plate.

Service

Dropped car to dealership first thing in the morning, was told the car would be ready by midday and I would get a phone to say when ready. Never got a phone call and did not get the car back till the next day.

Service

Friendly and professional service with a comfortable customer area.

Service

please see above...the guys at Arden are ok but, as expected, not admitting a manufacturing fault

Service

Professional service.

Service

Arden provided what was needed efficiently

Service

I was not overly satisfied with the way that I was spoken to by one member of staff who asked the question of whether I would be paying for my MOT or someone else. When it was only myself dropping off my car to the centre.

Service

Good and friendly staff, always polite and helpful and the car comes back washed and clean.

Service

Already said why

Service

how things were organised from the courtesy car and timing in general of the corrective works on a brand new vehicle.

Service

How many more times do I have to tell you They did what they said they were going to do

Service

You need to book 6 weeks in advanced for a courtesy car. They phone you the day before trying to sell you every product on offer but don't look at you history which shows you already have it. Ending the call saying

Service

Friendly helpful the best as always

Service

When I got into my car, the "service" indicator was still lit, the Service Reception Assistant very kindly readjusted the message.

Service

The Service consultant was very helpful and we talked through the work done on my vehicle. However the receptionist did not offer or let me know I could get a drink.

Service

Service was done properly and promptly

Service

It was a very easy experience

Service

Michael Lee the service agent that handled my car was particularly good. He personally really helped manage my expectations and made the process both efficient and smooth. The use of the courtesy vehicle was essential and I was v. happy with the work

Service

effortless booking and collection

Service

Waiting time for paperwork to be collected from the machinery shop to the guest desk took a long while.

Service

Great service

Service

They are ok at best as a dealer but closest to me so I tolerate them. Always very pleasant but kept me waiting 20 mins at the initial runnning in service even after they called me to say the car was ready an hour before.They lack the finishing touch

Service

very prompt

Service

Good

Service

My car was collected and returned on time

Service

Cost of additional items was agreed beforehand. It was ready for collection later than agreed though.

Service

Arden staff have tried to resolve issues amicably on each occasion a problem has occurred.

Service

The car although being 4 years old has only been used for 12100 miles

polite friendly staff. obviously knows about the cars and details.

Service

It's ok but nothing special. Low range of loan cars. Jaguar give clients a decent car with the objective of selling benefits of an upgrade. Arden seems to offer the lowest cost.

Service

Luke Gould cannot do enough for you... brilliant customer service.

Service

Very quick service and attentive staff.

Service

I wasn't completely satisfied due to one matter. My dashcam was disconnected whilst the car was on site, which is fine. However all 3 leads were disconnected, not just the power. And disappointingly none of the leads were reconnected.

Service

Had my car booked for service and MOT. service advisor said car had not done enough miles for service just an MOT due, I would have been non the wiser if had been serviced so thank you to him

Service

very professional service by all of the staff and extremely helpful.

Service

Would rate as Completely Satisfied, except yet again had to fight to get my breakdown issue seen too (standard answer is "we can only see it in 3 weeks time").Problem solved in 48hrs after service manager agreed to fix if/when a gap. Thanks Gary Page

Service

The additional work was carried out very efficiently

Service

They collected and returned the car within six hours having found and rectified fault with EGV

Service

Good service

Service

My car was taken back to the garage just days after perchacing it from brand new for a fault. When the car was returned the problem was not rectified. It has since been back to the garage and is still not fixed. It's due back in mid June.

Service

Elise was absolutely charming and helpful in explaining what was andc would happen

Service

Very high standard

Service

From the moment I walked in the door I was seen to super efficiently.

Service

Extremely poor service in all aspects, we will never purchase another car from this company

Service

Communication and level of service was very good but was quoted £189 when I booked and was told £250 when I took the car in. Both prices including vat

Service

All the staff are amazing g

Service

They kept me updated on the investigation & when i asked for a last minute addition to the work it wasn't a problem

Service

I only needed a Sat Nav upgrade but as telephone contact from reception could not be made I went to the stores to get the upgrade item myself so the Reception advisor could load it.

Service

This was about the 5th attempt for you to obtain and fit a replacement exhaust end. On finally being told it was in, waited all day to find that it didn't fit!!! And to cap it all there has been no follow up on what you plan to do about it.

Service
Thank you for your feedback, I have passed your comments on and one of the team will be in contact.

I know it was a major service, But I think it was too expensive.

Service
Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, we are happy to hear you received great service whilst with us. We do offer BMW pay monthly service plans if that would interest you in the future. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

I have experience of managing aftersales motor businesses so feel that I have an advantage when it comes to evaluating when service is delivered expertly and with a passion.

Service

Car was ready for collection quite quickly. All work done was explained comprehensively

Service
Thank you for leaving our service department with a 5star review, we are happy to hear you are enjoying your car. I will pass your kind comments on to the team and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Partially described as above. Often have to chase. 10 days after collecting replacement car, they still haven't settled my old finance agreement. Don't believe they have applied paint protection to car which they claimed they had.

Sales

See above customers, very disappointed with the very poor service given.

Sales

All BMW staff I dealt with were extremely professional and very friendly

Sales

Calls/ emails returned in good time. Good feedback. Good dealing with Charles.

Sales

All completed within 2 weeks, kept informed of what was happening.

Sales

Able to try out several cars and no hard sale. As stated previously the Sales rep was very good and all done in a relaxing environment

Sales

Super service.

Sales

Professional & attentive salesman (Terry Linford)

Sales

Have always used this Dealer

Sales

BMW paperwork took over the process. For example on the handover day out of 3 hours only 30 minutes were useful re the car itself and how it operated. I would not recommend the dealer and I have already written to the BMW CEO about what took place

Sales

Good experience nice surroundings good coffee

Sales

Efficient throughout

Sales

Lovely looking showroom with a great range of models available to see

Sales

Car well presented and Sales Executive could not have been more helpful

Sales

Excellent customer service, good coffee facilities, BMW employees very patient with a screaming child in tow. Gary took great time and care showing us how our new car operated/ answering our questions before handing the keys over. Was smooth process.

Sales

Questions dealt with very well and reassurances given when necessary.

Sales

As above
