Tyre pressures not checked warning light came on next day

The defect on the car was quickly identified, the spare part sourced, and the repair carried out without too much delay.

Service

This is my Wife’s car requiring a brake fluid service, she does less than 10k miles per annum , why could this not have been done when serviced earlier in the year?

Service

Excellent work carried out and despite the car needing a really good clean inside & out it was perfect - like a brand new car when I got it back.

Service

Car boot was not workingTyre pressure was very low within 2 days of getting car back. Paid £300 for 1st service, disappointing tyre pressure not checked

Service

Overall good service, although car was dropped off at wrong company meaning I had to get a taxi from my work to pick car up but taxi was organised and paid for by yourselves and service advisor was very apologetic so I couldn’t complain too much.

Service

Very friendly staff, prompt and knowledgeable

Service

Easy process, well explained and price for brake pads confirmed before work done. Car valet before I collected it. Mark the advisor spent time to run through everything.

Service

Did not get a full answer on my service monitor (needed an MOT but customer service rep did not know how this was derived. Had bulges on a tyre only 4 months old, was not advised about tyre insurance.

All the required work seems to be completed. Valet' service.

I was disappointed no pick up service or curtesy car was available or offered to me.Also, I was not told when making the appointment where the service department was located, as this was my 1st visit I arrived at the sales garage to be turned away.

Service

Harry Fairbairn Giffnock gives excellent service from start to finish (booking, the works, delivery). Definitely the place to bring your BMW for services, repairs, advice, etc.

Service

Communication from harry fairbairns wasn’t what I’d have exspected. I was phoning every two days for updates on how Work was going and had no idea when I was getting car back. I never once received a call to tell me how it was all going. 12 repair.

Only one of the reported problems was resolved, the creaking tailgate.The other problem, the rattle from the front, was not resolved. The re-fixing of the door panel did not resolve the issue. In fact, it introduced a new problem.

Service

No issues

Service

No courtesy car despite being booked in advance due to having two young children (<5yrs) and previous appts that could not be changed. Collection/delivery service driver was great but let down by HF as did not return car at predetermined time.

I was informed regularly throughout the time my car was in the garage and the repair has been carried out to a quality standard.

Only lack of accessible parking can spoil excellence

The service was fine, however the information provided to me in relation to work required was incorrect and the price of tyres are 30% higher than elsewhere.

From the start we were given the experience of hospitality and all round were happy with the advice and knowledge we were given

Service

As above

Nothing too much for the staff, made me numerous coffees, checked I was comfortable waiting and very pleasant.

Never got speaking to anyone at the bodyshop. Just dealt with service reception who new nothing about body work repairs

Service

excellent showroom with plenty of cars to view and test drive if you wish. nice pleasant staff that aren't too pushy but have all the information that you require

Service

The quality of the customer service was second to none. When my service was complete I even received a video from the technician explaining what he had done on my car.

Service

Fairbairns of Glasgow were sympathetic to my upcoming drive to London. They not only replaced my punctured tyre, but checked many other basic items prior to my journey.

Service

The car was serviced and cleaned.

Service

This is now my second service. Everything runs efficiently. Progress updates during the day on the car are excellent. Risks that the car may not be ready until the next day were highlighted very early and managed. Communication is the key

Service

Service was good. However car was not washed or vacuumed and not ready for agreed time

Service

As above

Service

Told it'd take 90 mins, so we left and returned in 70 mins and were asked when we expected to collect our car. We said "90 minutes after check-in so, in 20 minutes". We were told "the technician is on his tea-break". However, it was ready in time.

Everything ran exactly to plan and everyone involved in the booking to completion process was efficient and poilite. Excellent service, couldn't fault a thing.

Took a little longer than anticipated. I waited for minor work at the showroom.

Service

This was my first visit to the Irvine branch my reason for coming in due to poor treatment in my local branch.

Service

Have no complaints whatsoever

Service

Years of experience with Tom Church chief engineer

Service

They listened to the two problems I complained about and straight away took me with a mechanic to test drive the car to see if he could replicate the problem but did find the problem I was having a full health check was carried out s/wareupdated

Service

Over the years having had several new cars they have always carried out work to the highest standards always with a customer based attitude nothing is to much bother to them. They ensure that you are completely satisfied.

Service

Always thorough and clear

Service

They did better thann I expected.

Service

Service was fair but nothing special

Service

Collected serviced and returned cleaned. New payment system not liked, why not take over phone, I had to visit dealer next day to pay, having been out when car returned and unaware of change.

Friendly staff

Service

Great branch

Service

Based on my last visit i am very satisfied with the service received including the updates received from the team.

Service

The driver Martin was absolutely fantastic & a credit to the company!! done a full briefing when picking up the car so he understood fully what was required with my car! The service advisor on the other hand...not so much - very inexperienced & poor.

No faults found. Given advise as work that will need to be carried out. No pressure put on to get the job done.

Service

N

Service

Very helpful staff !

Service

I have marked my answer as very satisfied it would have been completely satisfied but for one reason "PARKING"On arrival at the dealership I could not find a parking spot due to the amount of "Non Franchise" vehicles parked.TOTALLY UNACCEPTBLE.

Service

Pleasant, courteous and professional service.

Service

My car was collected at 08:15 and I was told I should get it back in the afternoon - I received it 18:15. I believe my car was one of the first collected on the day but work did not start on it until the afternoon. Why only 3,500 miles to next servic

Service

The one thing to let the system down was at the point of collection of the car. see question 3.All staff were very polite.

Service

Having identified issues with a car I bought here, members of sales and service staff did everything they could to rectify the problem.

Service

All staff pleasant and helpful from start to finish, especially reception staff, I chose to wait for my car and they made sure I had refreshments and wanted for nothing.

Service

The issue was dealt with swiftly.

Service

Aftercare is exemplary

Service

slow to be attended when checking in car at reception. I was asked to make and appointment, yet despite no customers being at any of the desks, I waited almost 10 minutes to be seen.

Service

The work is fine but annoying to be greeted and then have to wait for an adviser to speak to you. it took ages just to leave my keys and I was getting a lift to work so my agitation was noticed so an envelope provided to drop them off.

Service

Overall, very satisfied with the experience, the staff were very pleasant and courteous, the car was returned spotless. A "friendly experience".

Service

Car was not ready until 35 minutes after we were told it would be.

Service

ALL DONE TO MY SATISFACTION

Service

Only comment I have is that you have to wait every time you take the car in, sometimes staff don't have the paperwork ready and printed even though car has been booked in. Other than that, always efficient staff who are knowledgeable and friendly.

Service

Had car for 24hrs. I was told the car had been cleaned when it had not .this a lack of care. The last car I bought from Fairbairn,an M3, wasn't serviced properly and had to get big end shells fitted

Service

Everything I asked to be serviced was completed

Service

No complaints

Service

Arrive give name, sit down then go to desk to sign form seems overly complicated. Not sure if this is BMW or Fairbairns

Service

As above

Service

Matthew the salesperson provided great assistance and help and made the purchase seamless

Service

Had a bit of a wait - 2.75 hours - and no one explained the hold up

Service

With less than 70k miles on the clock, I feel that the parts that required to be replaced should have had a greater longevity, especially as the repair was labour intensive.

Service

Lack of information about what needed to be done to repair my car

Service

very pleasant customer advisor-all queries dealt with and a repair dealt with on the day-loose central locking button

Service

The staff were friendly and informative and went the extra mile to fit in a service and upgrades at short notice.

The experience has been excellent from initial contact with the salesman (Alastair Crawford) via social media, through the test drive, delivery and follow through post purchase. The BMW Genius who did the handover could have been more helpful though.
