You will also see below customer comments, which are unedited.

No nasty surprises

Service

The small scratch on the off side wing was not 'polished out" as promised although it was booked in on the "Job Sheet". The Service, also on the "Job Sheet" was completed. The car was dropped off at 8am and not ready for collection until 5:15pm

Service

Tyres in winter storage had not been checked before storage nor when they were received back at the branch. Only when they had been fitted was it noticed the tread depth was below legal minimum. A new tyre was ordered & the car returned 2 days later.

Service

Servicing very satisfactory, but I did notice that when car was cleaned one of my rear passenger mats has been substituted for the original one. Not very pleased as the replacement is not the same quality and does not match the other mat.

Service

As per the above! To add to further insult, I was told that I could quicken the fix and take my car home by accepting a used caliper spring from another used vehicle! I was dumbfounded! Is that normal procedure? Secondhand part from another vehicle?!

Service

Obtained part and fitted following day from original visit

Service

car collected and returned exactly as promised.

Service

Collection was prompt, communication during the service was good and car returned on time and sparkling

Service

I've generally been pleased with the service, though there have been one or two lacks in communication and I wasn't best pleased with an attempt to charge me a ridiculous amount for adjusting a wiper blade.

Service

At no time did the guy at the service desk apologies for my inconvenience or offer a satisfactory explanation

Service

Everything was handled efficiently and effectively.

Service

Everything was explained when i went in for the Full service. Booking was straightforward and convenient. I waited 2 hours and car was sorted. In that time I was able to look at new deals on new BMWs.

Service

I have been critical of Dick Lovett before for putting more emphasis on trying to sell me something when I have my car serviced, than actually taking an interest in my experience as an owner of the vehicle. That was not the case on this occasion.

Service

The attention to details regarding what was going to happen to my car was exceptional with the introduction of the app to my phone and pc with the step by step procedure was a great addition.

Service

Still waiting for a cost breakdown for work required following warranty work 3 weeks ago. Also requested specific items to be looked and they were completely missed.

Service

More information on how long work is going to take should be given

Service

Ian took the time to ensure that I was happy and that the service and repair was finished.

Service

Pleased that they found the fault in my new car

Service

The customer service I received from Haley Smith was fantastic, she was exceptionally polite and knowledgable even when it was clear that I did not want to purchase additional services at main dealer rates.

Service

Long wait to collect car

Service

Didn’t feel like a valued customer, felt rushed when I was paying - I wanted to ask questions about the condition my car was in but felt like the advisor didn’t really care and wanted me to leave as soon as possible.

Service

We were told very quickly of a problem with the car and how long it would take to fix - the solution was provided as detailed.

Service

Staff very friendly and service quick and efficient.

Service

As above polite and friendly

Service

Overall very good but option for curtesy car was nearly a months wait when booking appointment.

Service

Service and MOT complete and the car was cleaned inside and out, great service.

Service

12 month health check carried out quickly & professionally

Service

Arrangingtheservicewasstraightforwardtheservicepersonelwereplesantandknowledgeablethecarwasreadyasagreedataresonableprice

Service

Always get a thorough service and health check with further advice offered if thought needed or necessary.

Service

All went well with Service and Wheel Change.

Service

Everything done speedily and staff kept us well informed of the progress

Service

Excellent service, friendly staff, very good facilities except if you are waiting for 3 hours all you have is a coffee bar to work on, need a couple of proper desks or a large round table with power points and proper desk chairs.

Service

see above

Service

The cost of servicing and repair seems excessive.

Service

For the first time in years I felt that the customer service failed to meet previous high standards.

Service

No issues completely satisfied

Service

Very thorough car check, managed to solve the problem of the car, also sent a video of the vehicle check, which was a nice touch.Only issue was that I left the at at half 8 and I couldn’t pick it up till 5pm, it was only looked at for around an hour

Service

Good communications, efficient, access to technician and workshop manager to explain the issue I had with vehicle.

Service

We have always had extremely good service from Dick Lovett Swindon.The time estimated for the work was not exceeded.

Service

Good timekeeping, car was completed on time and good to see video and then have discussions with Service team about the work needed

Service

Service was, as always, second to none, everything I would have expected/wished for plus some.

Service

My one reservation, this time, was the price quoted for the work on the phone was significantly different from the price I was charged in the showroom. It seems that the phone quote didn't include VAT, so the price was well over £100 higher!

Service

Always had very good service from Dick Lovett (David Seal, the person who sold us our latest cars was brilliant, and nothing was too much trouble).

Service

Work done on car was good. The member of the customer service team I dealt was poor and did not keep me in touch with progress. I would not have got my car back on the day if I had not been proactive. Have discussed this with the Service Manager.

Service

Very friendly and helpful staff.

Service

I got the car back and it wasn't ready to be on the road. Now, one month later (I haven't really used it), a service is due, meaning I have to take the car a third time in 2.5 months since I bought it.

Service

Requested the use of a courtesy vehicle when booking my service 4 weeks in advance, but no vehicle was available on the day of the service.

Service

I liked receiving the health check video, very innovative and I liked the way the staff handled everything.

Service

From the phone call to book the service to the 5 star treatment at the garage I am completely satisfied with my experience

Service

The service is consistently good, the staff are polite and very efficient.

Service

A mechanic came out on a short test drive to help investigate the problem then offered a free health check.

Service

The booking was made on a date and time that I asked for and the work was carried out to my satisfaction.

Service

My first BMW was a secondhand series 3 which I took to Dick Lovett on a safety recall. The service was very good and nice polite staff. When I came to buy my new series 3 and X3's I went back there naturally. I have always enjoyed good service there.

Service

Very helpful

Service

Work done car valeted good service!! Can’t ask for more!!

Service

Did the job in the timescale they provided.

Service

Both sales and finance team staff helpful but the discovery of a scratch on my new car has marred the experience

Service

Quite often a disinterested member of staff at many outlets these days appears to be unhelpful and even rude. Quite the opposite at Dick Lovett BMW Swindon. All staff encountered without exception were pleasant, interested and helpful. Always.

Service

Everything dealt with competently

Service

I had a Vehicle Health check on my car which showed N/S/R side light not working, new outer light cluster needed. Friend said probably just corrosion on bulb/fitting, give it a clean. I did, works fine, dread to think how much would have been charged

Service

Message left on phone regarding needing tyres replacing was faint and hard to hear due to background noise. I called back but caller was unavailable. Did not explain the problem to me at all when i collected car.

Service

Check was carried out and completed as agreed, car cleaned ready for our collection.

Service

Always checked on to see if I’m ok and would like a drink

Service

Good service

Service

no drama at any stage of the process

Service

I was well looked after and treated like a valued customer.

Service

In the process of working on my car they changed many of my preferred control settings and did not return them afterwards. Consequently I was driving around after dark without lights as the auto function, which I always have switched on, was off.

Service

They fixed a rattle in the door of my car and charged me nothing for this service. It has not rattled since. And they washed my car, also for nothing. I also received a safety check video, all available online. Makes a really good impression TBH

Service

good team at Swindon

Service

Great focus on making sure that I was happy at every step of the service process

Service

Advised of the start of a 2k fault covered under warranty during the service.

Service

Well set out and very visible throughout the service. Everything is fully explained.

Service

Lovetts make every customer feel special

Service

I called to report several faults with my vehicle, they were unable to provide a courtesy vehicle or offer a collection and delivery service for nearly 3 weeks. Due to this I had to use a Mercedes curtesy vehicle, ironic really.

Service

We unfortunately have had several AUC issues, a broken light cluster, steering judder, a leak on the rear Diff, a faulty tracker unit, and the iDrive continually rebooting!! BMW Swindon have been excellent diagnosing and repairing all issues.

Service

I do not believe the service team are at fault but they could listen to me and ‘champion the customer’ and push BMW for a fix, not just accept try this and see.

Service

Quick and efficient with good video to explain car

Service

Really good customer service from your service manager Ian Bird

Service

Had a stuck locking wheel bolt and BMW managed to sort it within an hour of me phoning up as had a tight schedule that day.

Service

Was no able to get the required replacement part the next day

Service

My vehicle had a computer failure. When it was returned I found the same problem immediately occurred which raises questions of testing to clarify problem solved. Very satisfied with way service desk handled situation.

Service

Had to push to garage to find a replacement part in the supply chain. The garage originally suggested bringing the car back "in a few weeks", rather than search for the appropriate component, this not acceptable.

Service

Dealt with different service personnel and didn't feel the bill was explained properly.

Service

Was very satisfied with the service provided. Slight niggle in that the maintenance computer on the car was not reset so despite having all work done I still get a graphic of a car lift popping up every time I start up.

Service

Very relaxed, had a chat to Mark in sales and discussed current figures, as well as looking at showroom cars.

Service

Very satisfied with the service received.

Service

Very quick to respond and accommodating to get my vehicle back in for investigation as a follow up to a previous visit. Really happy with the overall service at Swindon from where I purchased the car. Very helpful sales and service teams.

Service

Were very flexible on timing of service, it was completed efficiently and car was waiting cleaned when I arrived to pick it up.

Service

All my queries my answered promptly, the staff were friendly and BMW are competitively priced.

Service

Do what they say they are going to do and always polite and friendly.

Service

Working within the constraints available to her, Lyndsey Bennett is an excellent, dependable service advisor who always goes the extra mile.

Service

The aftersales support is 1st class at all staff levels. But above all, their business is executed in a professional and friendly manner.

Service

Driving to the BMW Service in Swindon a yellow lamp showed the washer was low. I reported it at the service desk. The following day (28th Feb) I had to go to London. On the M4 the washer iced up. Diluted fluid caused it.3 service stops on the M4! !

Service

somewhat dissatisfied with AUC checklist, As I bought a car with many many issues. Granted they were fixed or shall I say being fixed still but with many complications along the way. The sales guy is ignorant and doesn’t reply to emails after sale

Service

1st service and my issue is with the recording of this service. I was expecting on a 3 Series M Sport model that in the vehicle info screen there would be record of date and mileage at service but there isn't. Only miles until next oil change shown

Service

They did what they said in the time that they said.

Service

Fast and efficient

Service

Good customer service but problem not resolved to my satisfaction

Service

Good service and job done to our satisfaction. If there was more of a luxury feel and environment (e.g. coffee and biscuits offered, our names used, and nicer area to wait in) I would have given full star review.

Service

Would have been 100%, but mistake on bill

Service

Very good, car didn’t smell like it had been infor service (nasty grease shop smell) one small minor thing is when they clean a car what I don’t expect is the windows to be all smeared, I drove off and it was very apparent.

Service

ABSOLUTELY FAULTLESS- WELL DONE

Service

Work undertaken and returned when promised

Service

My query took a long time to answer and the proposed solution was an expensive one.

Service

Always work to standard and prompt service

Service

Service was very good but I was disappointed with £1000 excess for loan car insurance unless I paid a fee when my car was in for warranty work.

Service

When car was collected it was from wrong address, even though I had changed the address with the operator, no big deal but an unnecessary error.

Service

Got my issue sort so I could get my car back.

Service

Staff very polite and courteous. Facilities whilst you wait are very good and broadband available so I can work while I am waiting. Hot Drinks also free too.

Service

- Didn’t feel the service agent was very helpful towards me when I got the shock of my service package not being valid.- Power points not working on the ‘work area’- forgot to provide my MOT certificate in documents

Service

I was not advised of a service upgrade until I arrived at the showroom and have had to book another visit.

Service

Member off staff Thomas maskell was excellent in all areas of his job

Service

All the periphery is there, nice reception, good welcome etc. However, you continue with the bad practices of old - I am not in your premises as an open wallet for you to look to create more opportunities to say "oh, and you need this extra..."

Service

Whilst the quality of the work was fine and the condition my car was returned in was superb, the experience I mention above was far from ideal.

Service

Salesman was courteous and attentive.

Sales

Staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Very keen to please and made me feel like a valued customer

Sales

From the moment I entered the door to the final collection of the car itself, everything felt warm, unintrusive and inviting. Good atmosphere in the showroom. Staff interested not only in the car sale but getting the right vehicle for the customer.

Sales

Issues were dealt with efficiently and sensibly.

Sales

I felt completely happy that you were able to match the price of the car I purchased, I was kept really up to date with every stage of the process, being notified of build date and estimated delivery date. It arrived 2 months than first advised.

Sales

Would have preferred better contact between placing order and delivery of car. I generally had to chase up for progress reports.

Sales

Mohamed was great,really nice guy that we had faith in.

Sales

completely satisfied

Sales

Mark Norton has helped me twice now and he is brilliant.

Sales

Great staff well looked after

Sales

We had a set budget and Conner and the rest of the staff at the showroom listened to us and we therefore did not feel pressurised to go beyond this budget. They went out of their way to try to support us with our finances.

Sales

Usual exemplary service from Dick Lovett Swindon.

Sales

Good presentation, efficient, pleasant staff

Sales

No issues what so ever

Sales

From the customer service I received from Luke Day.

Sales

Great communication and presentation of new car. Friendly and helpful.

Sales

Attention to our needs second to none and no detail left unattended We bought our first BMW from Dick Lovett when they were in Wroughton circa 34 years ago and the same holistic experience continues to dateDick L family business ethos maintained

Sales

knowledgeable and enthusiastic team

Sales

Luke Day has looked after me for the last 3 years where I have purchased 5 cars during this time......excellent service and I wouldn’t buy a car with any other sales advisor.

Sales

Nothing to fault.

Sales

I was very satisfied with the whole process from start to finish. I was looked after by Conor from BMW Swindon with weekly updates on delivery date. He made the handover so easy and explained the new car in an easy to understand way.

Sales

We were kept informed and updated on the delivery.

Sales

David Seal was helpful, not pushy, and able to answer all my questions and kept me informed throughout the process.

Sales

Overall it was a good experience

Sales

The centre offered a product that was very suitable and when picking the car up they were bot informative and enjoyable to deal with

Sales

Simple and hassle free

Sales

Just the whole experience from start to finish, really nice people to deal with, friendly, helpful & professional and a spotlessly clean showroom and waiting area

Sales

The sales advisor was very helpful and went above and beyond in all aspects.

Sales

Everyone I dealt with throughout made it an easy and enjoyable experience

Sales

Listened intently, offered solutions first time

Sales

Karim was friendly, professional and interested in my particular needs. The whole process was painless from selling my car to purchasing the new BMW. Customer Service was excellent throughout.

Sales

Some lovely touches from unveiling the car, to receiving a thermos flag and an after sales video to say thank you. Not expected and really liked the additional touches

Sales

As before, pain free,excellent and friendly staff

Sales

The staff and facilities at the BMW centre were excellent and dealt with the failed electronic system efficiently and professionally.

Sales

There was a mixup with what documents needed to be signed and when. In general I didn't really have a good idea of when I was due to pick the car up. I only knew that I was to pick the car up on 1st March rather early Feb when I was sent the reg cert

Sales

Excellent customer service at my local BMW centre -Dick Lovett Swindon. All staff have been very helpful. Personal thanks are extended to my main sales contact Jesse Quinney who was very helpful and totally professional throughout my car purchase.

Sales

Staff very amenable and helpful.

Sales

handover was very good but the car not valeted properly and had to be redone.

Sales

Even though we had the worst snow for years they managed the handover without a problem. They made the purchase very easy including the selection of optional items and kept me appraised of progress all the way through

Sales

The BMW dealership was always made me feel very welcome. From the moment you walk in, the reception team are immediately friendly and attentive to ensure someone is available and then the customer experience remains a key focus.

Sales

BMW Swindon has an excellent showroom staffed by friendly and very helpful staff who are clearly customer focused

Sales

A pleasant welcoming, a comfortable and informative conversation during our conversation about my new car and a delicious coffee!

Sales

Great test drive. Easy to deal with.

Sales

I have covered this question with my previous answers.

Sales

The experience was excellent from start to finish

Sales

Mohammed was an excellent sales person. I would have like an service package included in the car and a longer warranty. my last 3 cars have been a kia with 7 years warranty, i can't believe that BMW cars are less trustworthy

Sales

A good experience overall

Sales

THOMAS REYNOLDS WAS EXCELLENT
