Excellent Purchase Experience - Sacco
I just purchased a new 2016 BMW X3 from Momentum BMW. I worked with Tom Herald, Internet Sales Manager. Tom was a pleasure to work with. He was professional, friendly and helped me locate the car with options I was looking for.
I previously purchased a 2014 BMW from Tom. It was such a pleasant experience, I contacted him again to purchase my 2016 X3. I visited with Tom on numerous occasions to test drive various cars before selecting the X3. Tom helped me look for certified pre-owned cars and compared them to new car options before I decided on the new 2016. He was able to locate the exact car with the specific color and options I wanted and had it shipped from another out of town location to Houston for me. Tom was diligent in following up with me before and after my purchase. Tom definitely exceeds my expectations. I highly recommend Tom and Momentum BMW for next purchase. I continue to recommend him to all my family and friends.
Great buying experience - Happybuyer
Scott Nefstead was easy to work with remotely. He was prompt providing information and made closing the deal much easier than we expected it would be buying from another city. Thanks Scott!

I recently purchased my second BMW from Cue Nadaraja and it was such a stress free experience. I felt at ease and was not pressured to make a decision to purchase. Mr. Nadaraja was extremely helpful, thoroughly knowledgable, and assisted in a very professional manner. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and the great customer service that I received, not only from my sales person, but from every employee who assisted me with my purchase.

Recently purchased a new car from Terry and he did a great job. He got the most for my trade in,and did give me the blues on the price of the car. Will definitely purchase my next vehicle from Terry and Garlyn Shelton
Isaac Logan - artesia
We were just looking and we were thinking about trading in our Nissan Murano. Isaac came out was very friendly, warm and full of knowledge. He ask questions, made statements and soon we were driving a couple of certified cars. Both were BMW's and he let us drive both. The driving course he took us on tested the overall stability, comfort, proved the luxury of the vehicle and was overall a beautiful are to be in. He is interested in customer service, and went way beyond what we have been seen in the past and we usually trade cars ever year or so. The closing was directed by him and when we came back to pickup our new vehicle, he demonstrated what features were on the car. It had so many, that he was finishing up his presentation from our test drive. We are happy with our new car and happy with the time he took for this transaction. He really seems to enjoy his job!! Every one that was involved in this process was very helpful!!
Vehicle Service - dicer11
Called BMW of San Antonio to ask questions about recall service. Person that answered phone could not answer my question and told me that service manager would call back. Two days later no call back. To be fair, this is my fifth BMW and I have had my cars serviced there with good results. The problem has been consistently not getting call backs when I am told I will receive a call even to schedule repair appointments. Part of the satisfaction of owning a BMW is receiving good service which is partly lacking here. Called BMW in Austin and received a call within an hour.
Great Experience - sneezycat
I have been getting new car every several years from this place since 2004. Everyone was very accommodating, will do business again in the future
Easy and smooth. - Free spirit woman
A trustworthy and great place to buy a car. From a woman who does not enjoy the process of buying a car Troy made it easy. Being able to deal with openess and honesty and not all of the hangling was refreshing. I love my car and the smoothness of them taking the time to teach me and format the new technology. This is a class dealership I highly recommend.
Ending on a high note! - JRS
To make a very long story short, I bought a car that did not function from another dealership. That dealership was not addressing the issue quickly or efficiently enough. I owned the car for three weeks and at least 10 or more days out of that three week period, the car was at another dealers service department with major issues. I went to Mike Smith BMW to see if I could find another car to replace the expensive clunker I just bought. John Robinson greeted me and guided me to the right vehicle for me. He was extremely knowledgeable, sincere in his approach, and not overly ambitious with his sales technique. He, along with Loney Bourque, was able to get me out of a nightmare of a car and into a Certified Pre-Owned car that I am very satisfied with, so far (knock on wood), and at a much better interest rate than what I previously had. They're all Aces in my book and if you choose to buy a BMW in Beaumont, do not trust what you are buying unless you are buying from them. Mike Smith BMW Beaumont is "Five Star" service. -JRS
Frank is Cardenas Service! - isaiahsup
I would like to say, on the behalf of my wife and I, that it has been an extreme pleasure to work with Frank in car service. His exemplary courtesy and professionalism made our experience with Cardenas Mazda both relieving and enjoyable. Most consumers dread the necessity of car service, especially at car dealerships for fear of getting swindled, us included. Frank has changed our perception. He is an extraordinary asset to Cardenas Mazda. You are both lucky and blessed to have him as we are to have met him. We hope we're half as lucky in Miami to enjoy a similar experience. Thank you.
Awesome experience, John Brunson is the best! - April Niskar
After having a bad accident and totalling my car I was forced to find a new one. Having not purchased a car in 20+ years I was a little nervous. John brunson and Classic BMW made the experience easy, fast, and I now have an awesome car that I love! I'll recommend them to anyone!!!
The PERFECT new car transaction... - Fr4nktheT4nk
Go see Tyler C. before you do anything else. His expertise is unparalleled, I was working with another dealership and Tyler earned my business even before he quoted me a better price. No pressure sales, he won't sell you anything you don't want or need, which in turn puts you at ease to make sound decisions. He was also willing to work around my schedule, it's those little extra efforts that truly make the difference, a truly painless experience. Purchase from Tyler and BMW of Wichita Falls with confidence!!!
Had a very good experience with Vernon - Shamil
I had a few minor things on my almost new 2015 X3: rattling noise from a dashboard and some metal clicking sounds coming from somewhere in rear/trunk area. All was fixed.
Substandard service - BMWfan
Took my vehicle for replacement of a battery. Service representative informed me that vehicle may not be ready same day because they may have to order the battery. I replied, you are the dealer! He replied "well, there are shortages everywhere". "I wil call you and let you know". I did not receive a phone call from him at all. At 16:00 I called and he stated "young lady, your car needs a battery". I replied, yes, that is the reason I took my car there for. He replied "did you leave your car with me". I replied yes, this morning.. He replied, "let me see". Well, are you going to need a ride? I replied yes. He stated "I'll give you a loaner and your car will be ready tomorrow". He then proceeded to tell me the total cost of replacement.
This morning at the dealer, I was shown the invoice and I noticed that there were extra charges that I did not approve. Mr. Tealer, the service representative, said "it's an oil change" I replied"I never received a phone call from you asking if I wanted an oil change. "He replied" you asked", I replied I asked for the specials but I never gave approval for the service. He replied "I'll just take it off". Then there was an approximate 30 minute delay processing a refund on my credit card. This has been the worst experience I have gone thru since I purchased the vehicle back in January 2010. What happened to being the best car dealer in town? Personal service and a caring attitude? Explaining charges, calling the customer before performing services?
I hope this dealer goes back to the way they used to be. I love BMW.
Refusal to repair mechanical defect under warranty - kcfallen
After multiple attempts to resolve through with BMW directly to no avail, I'm hoping I can warn someone about the deceptive practices at this location to perhaps save someone from going through a similar experience.
My husband purchased a brand new 2015 435i Gran Coupe in the Summer of 2015. A few days ago we noticed a knocking noise in the rear left of the car. He took it in to Advantage Midtown since it's still under warranty and is far too new to be having any major issues. They informed us that a control arm in the suspension snapped and that they wouldn't cover it under the warranty because it was considered driver fault. When we tried to ask what type of driver fault scenario could cause this, no one could explain and they kept reiterating that they had never seen anything like it before. So considering the car is barely driven and my husband only drives it to work in the Galleria and back home, this made no sense and sounds like a clear mechanical defect. Then they attempted to say well maybe you hit a pothole or drove too fast out of a driveway.
A few things are wrong with this but the greatest being that my husband is a certified Professional Engineer (PE) with a specialty in Mechanical Engineering. I don't say that to sound haughty but to emphasize how you can't pull a fast one on him in this area. The pothole and driveway scenarios are baseless and would never result in a break to a control arm. So that scenario is unfounded. Once my husband started talking stress fractures etc (terms going completely over my head), the mechanic was clearly clueless and just deferred to his manager who repeated the same thing like a robot (warranties don't cover driver fault). My husband knows that the only impact that would've resulted in a clean break to this internal piece would have to be so profound that undeniably there would be other damage to other pieces yet all pieces of our car's underbody and outside of the vehicle were in impeccable condition. Control arms don't just "break" spontaneously unless the component is defective.
They said they would have a field engineer come out to do an assessment and my husband requested that he be present, and they agreed to call him. I was there to see two representative make this promise. The next day, the "assessment" was completed, and not surprisingly it reaffirmed the service dept's assessment but no one had contacted my husband. Convenient right? Of course they didn't want the intelligent owner who knows mechanical engineering to be present.
Ok I'm rambling but after much back and forth, and even our insurance company saying that they consider this a mechanical defect and it should be BMW's responsibility, BMW is still refusing to repair this under the warranty. So we resorted to filing a complaint with the BBB.
In the BBB response from Juan Galvez, the Service Director, concocts a story about external impact to the vehicle. What impact?! The car is impeccable. We have requested for evidence and pictures to prove his claim that there was outside impact but he has yet to provide anything. So basically when backed into a corner, BMW has chosen to just fabricate scenarios and point fingers at everyone else instead of accept responsibility and cover a repair under the warranty.
We will NEVER be customers of this dealership again and more than likely never purchase another BMW. We never had these types of problems with Infiniti and Audi.
Very Dissapointed in this Dealership - MBCustomer
This BMW is owned by AutoNation. I had a bad experience dealing with the sales associate. In the past I had a bad experience with the Mercedes Benz North dealership, also owned by AutoNation. I can only assume that the problem is management. In the case of the BMW salesman I discovered that he priced a new vehicle in a way that I consider to be wrong perhaps even fraud. I priced the same vehicle at another BMW dealer in a different part of Houston and the price for the same car was $6,000 less. When I told the salesman this he said he had 'no idea". I was a repeat customer and I think he should have full knowledge of the offer he gave me.
Unsatisfactory work and they will not stand behind their wor - Culbles
I have had my 2006 Z4 into Autobahn BMW twice for convertible top work. The first time they would not stand behind their repairs and I had to go to BMW USA. The next time the top failed Autobahn again would not stand behind their work and I had a meeting with the service manager who just blew it off and again blamed the problem on water. I own the only BMW convertible that can not get wet/rained on as suggested by the service manager. I ended up taking my vehicle to another shop and got the repair with a two year guarantee. And of course at my expense again.
Worst experience ever, don't ever take your vehicle here. - Bong B
This is only one of the many frustrating, blood boiling experience i have with BMW of North Houston. I took my X5 for an engine oil leak, the sérvice advisor informed me that they charge $180.00 for diagnostics. I have an extended warranty on my car, so they said that the warranty company will offset the diagnostic fee if a repair is needed. They arraganged a loaner car for me to use, so i left my x5 with them. I was promised that I will be given an update the same afternoon with regards to the status of my car. I waited for an update the whole day and nothing, not a phone call. I have to be the one to call them so i can get an update, when they kept promising they will call me. I waited for a week for the parts to arrive and repairs to be completed. So finally Eric Cabargo the service advisor, called me after a week and said that the repair is complete but their technician needs to drive it for a day to make sure no leak will happen. They added 50 miles to my car for test drive? Really? 50 miles? Then i got a phone call a day after from Eric, the cooling fan broke apart on the way back to the dealership so another repair needs to be done. On top of that they said that there is something wrong with the left rear suspension. That they need to replace the left rear spring. And since the engine light came on, the oxygen sensor needs to be replace and that the extended warranty does not cover this repair. So it took me another week and this time $1600.00 more to complete the repair. Since i have plans to talk to the warranty company, i gave a go signal for the repairs. After an additional 5 days i was able to finally get my car, after settling the due amount. As i was driving out of their drop off area, i noticed that the windshîed has a crack from one side of the glass to the other. I immediately brought it to their attention and they don't have an explanation for it.
So now i am waiting for another week to have the windshield repaired!!!! To add insult to injury, this so called service advisor told me that he could have let me drove off their lot with a cracked windshiled but he did not. What the FREAKING xxxx?! Had i did not saw it i will drive off with a damaged windshield! He did not see it, not even the technician or their freaking driver! And i need to be thankful? I have other bad dealings with BMW of North Houston, the reason i keep taking it back to them is because my extended warranty is affiliated with them. While you all still have a chance do not ever take your car here! Join the class action law suit to teach these company a lesson.
Offensive treatment at BMW West Houston - Moto M.
Poorly managed BMW West Houston: BMW has to improve their service standard offered by its dealers in the US. I spent hours going through their inventory list to pick the car I am interested in, and had some communications with their internet sales manager prior to my visit to this dealership. I was asked to come by to check those cars that I previously inquired about. So I did. But only being told by the sales associate not to come here with the list of six cars. I already discussed about those six cars with his sales manager and explain why I am interested over phone and emails. Nothing was communicated to the sales associate at the showroom. I was told by the sales assistant to come here with only one or two cars at most to check after enough studying the cars I want. He even made offensive comments including his response to my question related with discount possibly different from car to car. To make the story short, after listening to his complaints and waiting for hour and a half, I became tired and left this dealership with not being able to see even one single car from the list. I was told some cars were not available and he eventually did not come back while I was left alone at their show room, just waiting. Obviously to him, his time was a lot more important than mine. Unexpectedly unpleasant experience at BMW West Houston. I wish you have a decent BMW dealership which can treat customers not as bad as this car dealer. BMW North America should better manage their qualities of services offered by BMW West Houston.
They drilled a hole in my BMW 550! - Damaged bmw
Horrible experience. Cannot recommend strongly enough how disgusted I am with this dealership. Took my 2012 BMW 550 with 48,000 miles back in again for running issues that started after this dealer preformed the ccp recall. Somehow, the car has 4 bent wheels, and a defective steering wheel. My rear 1/4 panel was damaged while at BMW of cc, and they drilled a large hole in my car to "repair" the dent. I did not authorize or consent to any body work being done to my car. They once again "cannot find" or identify the running problem, although anyone not employed by BMW seems to be able to. Car still runs rough and there are common problems that they refuse to look into. They even let the shop forman take my car home for the night. I'm not sure what special vehicle repair facilities he has at home, but I didn't authorize him to drive my car home! My car was returned out of gas after the foreman's outing with additional damage to two areas of he front fender.
The dealer refuses to do the right thing and compensate me for the damage they caused and the diminished value of my vehicle. So I now have a 2012 BMW 550 that is damaged and has a diminished value.
Only give them one star because I cannot give the 0 stars.
If I can add photos, please let me know how.

Worst car dealership I have ever experienced in my life. ... - tesko808
Worst car dealership I have ever experienced in my life.
Not only do these guys not seem very interested in selling cars, sometimes they seem to actively discourage it. They will condescend you, ignore you, make you wait for hours, not call you after promising to do so, bait and switch, etc. Two separate incidents should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect:
1) My friend and I were both in the market for a BMW so we decided to visit the place. (It was the only BMW dealership near us.) After waiting for quite a while, we finally tracked down a salesman. He made us feel like we were wasting his time and was very condescending. We left feeling mildly shocked at what had just happened. My favorite quote (word-for-word from the _BMW_ salesman), “Hondas are good cars. I drive a Honda.” I regret it now, but my lust for an M Roadster got the best of me and I nevertheless ended up buying one from them a couple weeks later.
2) Sadly, my M met an untimely end so decided to go back and look for another fine Bavarian motor vehicle. This experience was even worse--Same attitude, same condescension. I go up there on a Friday, we negotiate and I leave frustrated after they refuse to meet anything reasonable. Later that week, we seem to reach acceptable terms for both of us over the phone and I go back over there. Terms are agreed on and we begin the paperwork. After hours of waiting on this and that, the dealership is closing and the salesman says he won’t be there tomorrow but another one will, we’ll call him Adam. (Not his real name) I am introduced to Adam and they say Adam will call me tomorrow.
Of course, Adam doesn’t call. I eventually call and after playing phone tag for a while, surprise! It’s six, we’ll have to do it on Monday I’m told. So I go in on Monday. Wait… just a few more minutes… hold on… waiting for F&I, etc. About two hours later I finally get in to sit down with the finance guy. He tries to get me to start signing things but wait, I say, I want to make sure everything is as was agreed. And it wasn’t. The APR was nearly double what had been agreed upon. I point this out. More waiting, another guy comes in, sits down, and basically tells me “sorry about what you were told but that rate doesn’t exist in our world.” In so many words, I tell the man what he can go do with himself. I leave BMW of Dallas for the last time.
Please take my advice and don’t waste your time at this place.

My experience of buying a used car at Mike Pile was very good, overall. John was very easy to work with and professional. Rhonda was very knowledgeable and efficient. One of the most hassle-free car buying experiences I've had.
