To long for a very small job

Car was only part cleaned, top of the alloys were still caked in dirt...

Service

I was booked into drop my car off for a service at 8.30am. At 9.00am I was seen by one of the service advisors.

Service

excellent customer service throughout

Service

Cooper BMW managed to perform a service to the minimum standard however have been unclear when dealing with a 4 x warped break discs issue that they have initial stated was caused by a defect and later stated was caused by wear and tear.

Service

Sometimes communication between customer and workshop is incomplete or incorrect. Discussion necessary to clear up any misunderstanding.

Service

Very professional and friendly

Service

Ok. The service tick box sheet said I was sent a video which I wasn't. This then made me consider which other items on the check sheet had been omitted yet ticked to say they had been completed.

Service

Not only did they supply the car but have maintained an interest and acted accordingly.

Service

Excellent service

Service

I was waiting half an hour to get my car back even though I was told it was ready earlier and the tyre fitted was flat because of an unsealed valve so I had to drive back.

Service

Very courtesy, pleasant and efficient service given by the Service staff and Reception staff equally.

Service

Some time required to source required soare

Service

The Salemens couldn't have done enough to help and make the whole process enjoyable and exciting. Kept me in the loop while waiting for my new car..

Service

Time and time again as we use BMW Durham we leave as highly satisfied customers. Just wish we could say the same regarding Car Care Centre in Sunderland.

Service

Great dealer, fantastic service and very pleasant and helpful to deal with. Very highly recommended.

Service

I know my car has been well cared for and prepared for the next 12 months.

Service

Works carried out to high standard, great comms and reasonable price.

Service

The car was very well looked after and the service was taken care of by Michelle, she rang to give me updates when needed and then even stayed behind late for me to collect the car when I was delayed, this was appreciated.

Service

Very helpful on booking in and kept me informed with progress on the day.

Service

Terrible service, never informed me what was happening, told me a pack of lies about what was happening. Was told a creaky suspension noise was a characteristic of the car. Really for a 60k car? Was told it's getting a software update when it wasnt.

Service

Car was serviced to a high standard

Service

This dealership knows me, respects me and always meets my expectations.

Service

Hassle free

Service

I was quoted an incorrect price at the service desk which was almost double the price stated on the service booking site. My car was washed and parked for a considerable time before I was summoned to the service desk to pay and collect my car

Service

They were able to tell me exactly what wrong with my cat. They provided detailed diagnostic report.

Service

Car sorted no problems

Service

Seals were replaced around driver and passenger windows - no attempt had been made to clean the glass after the seals were replaced.

Service

I have nearly always had excellent customer service at Cooper Durham and have recommended them to several friends & family. My in-laws were so impressed, they bought a car there without looking anywhere else. The staff are always friendly & helpful.

Service

The only concern i have is I was not contacted with regard to the repair, other than the repair was completed and the car was ready for my collection.

Service

ok

Service

Friendly and very helpful and professional staff.

Service

There was a little issue with the car but overall I was very happy

Service

Fast and professional

Service

Service department were very professional and pleasant. The most important thing for me was communication. I was kept informed of the progress of the work being done. Loved the valet too, my car was gleaming when I collected it

Service

The lady I dealt with was very helpful

Service

A professional and friendly experience with nothing being too much trouble. Sales lady went out of her way to help us as did the whole service team. Thank you to whole team at Coopers.

Service

I was taken to the service desk straight away, and the car booked in.The car was washed etc and ready promptly.

Service

Highly competent and efficient service & MOT. Friendly staff. Excellent communication before and during service day.

Special thanks to the collection driver Anthony. Pleasant, courteous and professional

Kept me informed and ensured all concerns were fully addressed and understood - Ryan was great in making the experience trouble free.

Service

Helen was very attentive and professional; she kept me up to date on the progress of my vehicle.

Service

Friendly courteous staff, good communication, no real issues. Never give 5 stars in these surveys.

Service

The car seems fine now.

Service

World class service and a truly enjoyable experience. Helen went way above the bar to ensure that we had an exceptional experience.

Service

Good time keeping. Service receptionist very good

Service

I took the car in for 9:00am and was told it would be done by 13:30pm. I turned as stated and it was still where I left it in the car park. I wasted a full morning of my time which was unnecessary as it was done within 30 minutes of me waiting!!!

Service

Car was serviced efficiently and was even washed and hoovered.

Service

The initial service was fairly satisfied but as the re call was the initial reason I came to the garage but service was completed at the same time at an extra cost I didn't expect to pay for as I had gone over 73 miles, after being given wrong advice

Service

Really helpful reception team, gave a very warm welcome and technical staff who went over and above.

Service

Dead easy no fuss

Service

My car was pre-booked to an appointment for a routine tyre replacement to be done whilst I waited. It took 2.5 hrs to complete and at a cost 50% more than a high street retailer who would normally complete the job in 40 mins. No apology/explanation.

Service

The lead time necessary to get a loan car is disappointing, OK if the car is to be in and out the same day but if it has to be in for more than a day it can be a real inconvenience.

Service

The car was taken on 3 tests totalling 35miles after diagnosis by the centre of a known fault that can result in the car catching fire (EGR cooler). It was recovered to the garage not safe to drive by BMW ES. I can't get a satisfactory answer why,

Service

Efficient service and great customer care at the garage. Mpg on the x3 is still quite low...better than it was, but keeping an eye on it.

Service

Service advisor Wendy was first class so she gets 5 stars - it's a pity the workshop let her down

Service

service could not have been any better, pleasure to do business with this little Dealer, very warm and welcoming experience.

Service

staff very helpful, they keep you informed of what is happening with your car

Service

I was asked if I wanted my car washed and valeted on completion of the recall service. I said yes, but the car only had water put over it as the windscreen and car was still dirty, and not dried.

Service

I had an issue with voice activation and whilst that was not solved on the first visit, possibly due to a misunderstanding, it was on a further visit

Service

the service was performed promptly and I was kept informed of the matters arising throughout the day.

Service

They had much more flexibility than the branch I usually use which fitted my busy schedule better, I was dealt with quickly and professionally, Lauren even walked out to the courtesy car with a brolly for me when is started to pour down with rain.

Service

Pleasant helpful person dealing with booking car in, good loan car, and work completed satisfactorily and on time

Service

The time I had to wait for one of the service advisors to return from their meeting. Surely the management can arrange temporary cover

Service

Stress free experience.

Service

Booked for warranty work. Your were nearest dealer who could undertake the work within a reasonable timescale. Still 90mile round trip. came back in afternoon to be told you never had parts so would need for another day. Waste of 1.5 days.Frustrating

Service

The car valet was rushed and handover was not satisfactory. Brand new oyster leather should not have black smudges from when an techician has been in to check over the car before handover. Very dissatisfied

Sales

More info should be given at handover about important controls. Its difficult to think of all the questions you need to ask and its to late as you drive up road.

Sales

First class service throughout

Sales

Professional standards are very high at CooperDurham which, for the purchaser, is very reassuring.

Sales

Whole experience was good

Sales

Again, Adam was amazing throughout

Sales

Sara at Coopers BMW Durham went through everything from the order to the handover

Sales

The slow process in settling my old finance deal has caused a bit of frustration with an otherwise smooth process. I don't feel I should be chasing up BMW to settle an agreement they agreed to settle some 3 weeks ago.

Sales

Again, everything went well
