My Review Of BMW of Escondido:
BMW of Escondido is not one of the major franchise car dealerships, but they are competitive and will do what it takes to EARN your business. In earning business, this does not happen in the "back room," but with open and honest transparency.
While they do not currently subscribe to USAA, Costco or AAA (to my knowledge,) they will honor these buyer programs. To do this, you should visit a dealership that can provide the bottom line for the BMW under consideration and have the pricing in hand. For instance, Costco's deal on a 3 Series is $500 above invoice.
Pierre has been steadfast in our discussions, always of best service, energetic, smart and personable. When my lease comes within a few months of the due day, he will be the first person that I will connect with for my next BMW. He is one of few salespersons that epitomizes "client advisor."
Mario helped craft the lease that we needed. He clearly understands the finance end of the business and provided the best solution.
This buying experience was one of negotiation but of teamwork to bring it together. No smoke and mirrors - "this is what we can do." Promises made in the negotiations were written into the contract - everything was above board.
While this reflects on our immediate experience with Pierre and Mario, we have met other client advisors during our visits. We would be comfortable working with any of these advisors as well.
What happens when it is time for service? Something that car buyers don't always think about until it is that time. When moving to San Diego a few years ago, we had a couple choices of servicing our 2008 328i. We tried other dealerships but found Escondido BMW our favorite. Again, the hospitality and service occurred effortlessly. On short service visits, I stayed in the lounge with WiFi service. On longer visits, a loaner car (BMW) was set up at the time of appointment.
I rate this dealership highly. Our all around experience has been excellent... I hope that you have the same.
