Service

Reception staff were incredibly helpful in providing me with information on how I could get my car seen quicker

Service

See above. Lack of communication, lack of planning and lack of understanding of the problem caused. I have no confidence that even now they appreciate the trouble caused not that it won’t happen again, given this is the second time it’s happened

Service

Excellent service: went over and above expectations and kept us updated every step of the way

Service

I waited on the vehicle and was offered tea and coffee..they were very quick with the car as I was waiting

Everything from customer service to attention to detail and quality of work was faultless.

Service

Done exactly as requested

Service

I bought my 8 series from you in 2003 and you are still looking after it. I also bought a new 5 series three years ago.

Service

Simple to get suitable date including keeping the vehicle for extra days when I needed to be away from home for a few days. Welcomed to the Service area and offered coffee etc. Led through process, kept in touch and finally got report.

Service

Process of repair was smooth and communication was good. As a secondary issue I asked for some advice on dealing with scratches on instrument cluster. I showed the engineer and was told someone would contact me - no response was received.

Service

Very helpful and local

Service

The tyre pressures were not checked or if they were the equipment was faulty as a warning came up about them.

Good service, friendly and efficient

Service

As above poor service speaking to people who knew little about cars and their component parts and couldn’t explain exactly what was wrong with the car but expected me to continue hand over money.

Service

Andy Henderson, the representative at Harry Fairbairn was exceptional. He dealt with all of my queries via e-mail whilst I was on holiday in Spain, keeping me fully aware on the status of my car. Andy is a credit to the establishment.

Service

Extremely disappointed that I had to go home and wash my car immediately due to all the dirt streaks on all the glass

Service

Great communication throughout. Unavailable part means I have to revisit which is always a bind.

Service

Excellent service

Service

Have used Harry Fairbairn for a number of years for servicing/repairs never had any major problems and anything we have not been happy about has been dealt with to our satisfaction.

Service

Service was expensive for minimal work. On receiving the car, the day after my tyre pressure warning came on. Additionally a fault is now present in the boot sensor which is causing it to believe the boot is open - not there before the service.

Service

Work completed as arranged. Kept informed of progress. Car cleaned inside and out... appreciated that.

Service

My tyre pressure was a little low and the light was on and i thought they would have put a little air in, it doesn't cost anything. I also had to ask for a lift home because I wasn't going to wait two hours until my car was ready.

Service

Outstanding lost pressure in my new tyre drove in without an appointment was taken care of from start to finish

Service

Car was supposed to be taken on a long test drive it only moved 2.6miles

Service

The video which was sent differed from the comments I received verbally, on status of my MOT, which was frustrating at the time. However when I called to clarify, I was told the information on the video was incorrect.

Service

See above - would NEVER use this centre again

Service

Waiting appointment for a service took 3 hours with no indication of times prior! Then left with what I believed “no issues”, driving out garage warning lights came on & BMW didn’t want to know unless I was paying to fix their errors!

Service

Everything was done as and when I required it.

Service

Fast and efficient service throughout.

Service

We were given a time to bring the car for service but then told that they weren’t sure what time it would be taken into the garage at. We did get a message when it was ready to be collected which was helpful

Service

Always kept up to date with the progress of my car

Service

It’s feels a bit wrong to enjoy and look forward to a BMW car service at Harry Fairbairn. The coffee, the biscuits, the excellent service, the polite reminder calls, and alas it’s all over when you’re walked to your shiny clean and beautiful BMW.

Service

My issues were dealt with eventually but did cause some considerable problems to me in the interim.

Service

Car in and in same day to my satisfaction washed and valeted

Service

It would have been preferable to contact me by telephone when car was ready for collection instead of specifying a time. As a result I had to wait for half an hour to collect car - staff did apologise.

Service

David at service reception desk was very helpful , both polite ,friendly and courteous however car was returned with fault NOT fixed and was still evident when I drove out of gate at BMW entrance although had been told thought fault had been resolved

From entering reception to pick up car took precisely 30 minutes. The arrangements need totally restructured. This experience is not a one off. I would go elsewhere but that would involve travel inconvenience.

Service

Fast, polite efficient service

Service

As above. Detailing of car on hand back was poor

Service

I was waiting for a 4 wheel alignment check, I wasn’t given any report of before / after wheel status to see which ones were out of alignment I had chosen Harry Fairbairn branch over cheaper companies because I thought they would be most thorough

Service

Took one hour to carry out an MOT retest - the only item to be checked was a new front tyre. I arranged to wait for the car but they didn’t show any urgency in doing the job.

Efficient and prompt service

Service

Fault with car attended to efficiently and professionally

The car was having the boot lock changed under warranty. It took a week from reporting it to getting the part in and fitted. I think that is good service

My vehicle was loosing coolant and had a cooler replaced. I was suitably informed my vehicle was checked and road tested. After receipt of the vehicle and within one day the fault condition reoccurred. The vehicle is now being returned to the garage

Service

Car was on for a full 3 days : was meant to be one day - I had to phone for progress updates (except for 2 spontaneous Service initiated calls) Courtesy car was unclean inside.

Service

My car was booked in for MOT I waited almost 2 hrs and when I asked how things were going I wanna as told they hadn’t started it yet as there was a problem with ramps and it was going to another site

Service

The work was done as per service schedule plus MOT - I was informed of extras by phone. My only gripe was hanging around for ages after being told my car was ready. This meant I ran into 2 lots of rush hour traffic jams.
