The place to take your car to. - Herman
The personnel is very friendly and helpful. Prices are very reasonable. They communicate better than I do. Took my car in for some repairs, all done quickly and professionally. Feel sorry for not taking my Buick there earlier.
Bottom line I couldn’t be happier about Win Kelly’s service.

Fast and courteous service team, I have been servicing at King for over 10 years now, always nice to work with. I would definitely recommend King Buick GMC service department!!
Customer Service is Awesome! So amazing! - Honor
I highly recommended this dealership! The moment I walked in the doors - I was approached with friendly smiles. Over the last 12 years - I have purchased 5 Mercedes vehicles from this dealership. My representative during these years has been Mr Celestin Lovence - who has spent numerous hours in ensuring that my needs in the vehicle are met. Throughout the years, Mr Lovence kept in personal contact with me and husband and this last purchased has been a phenomenal experience. He is truly committed to the highest quality of character service!
Excellent service - Mycar124
I just got back my car and was truly happy with the quality service. My representative Nabia Pirzada kept me well informed and took her time to promptly follow up with my insurance adjuster. Nabia worked with her repair team to deliver the car to me before the start of the weekend. I very much appreciate her help and the quality repair.
Had part, got done fast! - Gary1950
Koons GM Tysons has serviced my cars for the last 4 years. Latest service visit was typical: they had part, Service Dept was ready for me and I got back on the road quick. I always ask for Service Rep Steve. He’s always informed, organized and friendly. Thanks, Steve!
Mike G. Needs Customer Service Training - Fem32
So, as far as Quick Lane goes... I have no issue with the folks there. It's Mike G. that I have a problem with, purely speaking as a customer. My car had been in and out of the shop while under warranty (purchased used) and the same issues kept arising. I called and talked to Mike G. to see what would happen with these parts if they kept going out after being replaced. His response, "It's on you then."
It's on me... when the parts you have provided keep going up in smoke and the problem clearly isn't being fixed??
VERY RUDE IN TONE. ABRUPTLY HUNG UP ON ME.
Disappointing - Disappointed customer
I had been a loyal customer for years. Paying inflated prices for service on my Buick Enclave. As a working (business owner) mother of 4, my days are very dynamic and so I just figured going straight to the dealership would streamline my repairs....
Well, a few weeks ago I decided to bring my Enclave in for a check on the a/c. It was acting up a bit and I didnt want to get caught in the dc summer without a/c.
I wasnt in a big rush so when I called on a Wednesday, I arranged a Monday morning appointment for the next week thinking that would help me to get a same day diagnostic and lessen my vehicles time in the shop. But no. The appointment seems to have meant nothing. Although I called the Weds before, dropped the SUV off the Sunday night before for a Monday first thing appountment, they didnt even start looking at my car until Tuesday afternoon. Why did I make an appointment at all?
Anyway, when my service guy Brian called to FINALLY tell me their findings on Wednesday afternoon, he shared a laundry list of issues with a price tag of over $7200! Of course Brian being the guy who is "looking after me" made sure to preemptively say - you might want to sit down for this one..... he was so very thoughtful of my well being.
So im in shock! The car runs fine but its 7 years old with close to 100k miles on it. My mind is racing. What is this car even worth I wonder out loud on the phone?
But pro active Brian is there for me! Without skipping a beat he says "i thought you would say that. I have my sales team working up a trade in estimate for your car as we speak". Still in shock I mumble my thanks and say ill wait for your call back.
Brian dutifully calls me back an hour later and says the trade in is $5k and the sales team would be happy to find a new car for me. I bet they would!
Meanwhile, i have looked up the Kelly blue book value for my car. I plug in the lowest condition estimate bc of course my ally Brian has just shared my car is about to keel over with his laundry list of expensive problems identified to be wrong with my car. The value is listed as almost almost 12k. 7k difference?
I share this info with Brian (the discrepency between his sales guys trade in value and the listed value of my car) and he actually started chuckling at my statement. He told a story of these little old women whom he estimates to be essentially ignorant of real life valuations. They mistakenly believe their cars are worth much more than reality bc of sentimental attachments. He (chuckle, chuckle) sees this all of the time. Basically inferring that i am unintelligent and delusional about the value of my car. I found his manner to be sexist, patronizing and obviously insulting.
I told him i would pay their almost $400 diagnostic fee but I was coming to Rockville to pick up my car that day. No thank to the trade in or repairs.
He seemed surprised. Their whole plan wasnt going as expected. He replied "no need to rush up here, im sure you have a lot to think about. If you need to take a few days its fine with us. Come talk to my sales guy at your convenience". Again such a generous and considerate guy. But tragically this dumb broad with a PhD is going to have to pass fellahs...
I got my car, did some research, read some reviews and took it to a very well rated repair shop Auto Repair of Oxon Hill. I picked them bc many customers commented on their integrity and honesty. And being a DC resident, the time to travel to them in southern md, was actually a little less than travel time to Fitzgerald in Rockville.
Now here is the real kicker. I made an appintment, and they did a full diagnostic that same day! Shock! Customer service as it should be - how novel. They went through the list of repair replacement items from Fitzgerald. Found half of them to be lies/wrong and some to be just incorrect. An example, the AC repair that called for a new rear evaporator ($1100) actually only needed 1 small new part. Material cost 12$, labor 25$. The total of all repairs was in the 2k range! Way less than half of the fitzgerald estimate. And they had the work done in a day and a half. My beautiful car is back and doing great!
I will NEVER use Fitzgerald again. I felt like that whole set up was sleazy and I am disappointed. I was also really surprised. What drew me to Fitzgerald years ago and had kept me a loyal customer was their customer service.
I would recommend staying away or at a minimum being on guard for receiving faulty, predatory information especially if you are a female and a harried working mother. I really feel like they had a preplanned script worked out to make money on me and it was gross.

Horrible not professional at all hung up on me and never called back need to have better people skills and respect I would never go here again
Liars and very unprofessional thieves - Love12
Please if you need repair on your vehicle stay away from this place. I promise you when you go too fix one problem you will come out with 4 problems that you never had on your vehicle. I came here for a diagnostic stayed for 6 hours from 10:15am- 4pm. Nia the lady that works there charged me $500 in total to do a diagnostic, clean my throttle and reprogram. She didn't explain anything to me but asked me to pay before my vehicle was finish. When I got my vehicle the engine was shacking so bad while driving found out the thing that the timing belt goes around was not put back on properly. I called the shop and told them when I went to get gas and turned the vehicle off the car wouldn't start and nia had the nerves to ask me to come back and leave it for a whole day. What was the point in me coming to get a diagnostic in the first place and then charge me for not fixing my GMC. I work hard for my money if you knew they didn't know what was wrong with my vehicle and claim that the problem is cleaning of the throttle body will solve the problem the then be honest and say we don't know and let me take my car and money else where. I'm starting to believe the shop kept my car for 6 hours to steal parts off my vehicle
Dealership is desperate for money and will cheat you! - Tia W
I wish I can give them 0 stars for the poor service I received. I've never dealt with a dealership this desperate to cheat me out of a few dollars. I went to Capital Cadillac in greenbelt because my 2016 Buick Encore AC system stopped working this morning. I called in beforehand to confirm my car was under warranty. The shop promised I was covered under warranty just bring it in and they'll take care of everything. I called the tow early in the morning and I did not hear back from the dealership until right before they were about to close. The service rep, Ryan Holcomb, told me that although I am under warranty, work was done on my Buick that is not covered under warranty. Who authorized that? They charged me $160.37...AND I HAVE A BUMPER TO BUMPER WARRANTY, how did that happen? Well, okay... service rep, what did you do? He said they plugged in a plug that was unplugged. I was baffled and my friend agreed to just take me there in person. When I arrived at the shop and asked to get a copy of the invoice I was told that I could not have access to it and furthermore was told that they were not going to release my car unless they received payment and would not offer me a loaner car in the mean time. I'm a nurse working nights and missed my shift over this. I then asked to speak with a manager and was told no one was available and was then met with hostility and disrespect from the entire staff. So it's the weekend and I'm stuck with my car held hostage at the dealership and no other means of transportation until Monday. This has been an exhausting and stressful ordeal that could've been easily resolved. I would not recommended this business to anyone. I had to call Buick's corporate office to investigate this dealership. Proceed with caution.

My wife's brand-new 2005 Town Car has an integrated... - Skylaw
My wife's brand-new 2005 Town Car has an integrated Nav/THX sound/6-disc CD changer. The CD changer ate a disc, requiring replacement of entire unit. After the initial problem, the car was returned with LCD screen down - Nav & radio could not be used. I moved the LCD back into place to enable these features for the 3 weeks we were told to expect for the replacement system to arrive. My wife kept calling after expected delivery date of parts and was told repeatedly they were not in. At the 6th week, she was told the replacement unit had come in 3 weeks before. After the 2d appointment, the car was returned with the service invoice annotated "replaced and tested" and the eaten CD on the floor. The unit was not replaced at all - marks that had been on the changer face were still present. The changer would accept and eject CDs but would not read any of them - so much for "testing." On 3rd trip, my wife was told Cherner would install a new unit the next day - undoubtedly the one that should have been installed in the first place. The mechanic tried to blame problem on home - burned discs. Not so, all were commercial. When the unit was in fact replaced, all worked fine. I have many suspicions about an invoice that says plainly that an expensive ($3000 option) unit was replaced and tested, when it was very obviously not.
The car has an automatic trunk opener/closer. Soon after purchase, the trunk closer SLAMMED immediately after opening fully, hitting my wife's hand hard. Injury was not major, fortunately, but the trunk slammed hard enough to have taken a limb off or cause serious head injury. It shook the whole car, and bounced it on the suspension. The problem repeated every time the trunk was opened after first time it occurred. The cause was a torsion bar in the trunk mechanism that had become dislodged. Cherner's response: Don't put anything on the raised shelf in the trunk. It could happen again. Before the repair, I made a video of the trunk slamming 5 times in a row as soon as it fully opened, and hand-delivered it to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, together with a complaint. It's a safety problem of great concern, and "don't put anything on the shelf" is all Cherner can say.
Dealer-installed wheel well mouldings were not installed properly. One came off even before the car was delivered to my wife. On the last trip (for the nav system problem) it came off again and was destroyed in the dealership's car wash. The work is just sloppy and it is not checked adequately. Terrible quality control.
One "service" manager became extremely rude to my wife; she refuses to deal with him any more. The second manager has been an improvement, but the work in the maintenance bays is still awful.
We are looking for another dealer in the Arlington VA area; we have never had such bad dealings from any other L-M dealer in other cities (Tampa, FL, Sacramento, CA and Baltimore, MD). Most have been super. Not these guys.
Lack of cooperation or followup was evident even at purchase - it was a painful experience. Even at the front end, these guys don't know how to do business. We had our own financing, and it was a straight-cash deal - no trade. Price was fine ("employee" discount), but the delay tactics, unnecessary delays in getting the car out the door as my wife wanted it, and even the inability to get the sales people to credit the cost of the unused standard wheels against the cost of the upgraded wheels (which they insisted in selling at full retail) was a trial - although they did it after an hour of haggling and waiting. Although we found our car 10 minutes after coming onto the lot, it took four hours to complete the transaction on a straight cash deal!! Not a service problem, but part of a dealership problem - these guys just don't care about doing business or taking care of customers.

I have been fortunate in that the service issues with my car have not been that serious; however the service department is a mess! Getting a repair done correctly the first time simply does not happen. Worse, the service staff and manager simply do not care. I recently purchased a new tahoe that I would never bring to their service department. After purchasing a few cars from Chevy Chase Cars I went elsewhere. I can remember as a child going their with my grandfather when he bought a new Olds. circa 1979 & 1983...After having my other Car serviced there too many times, I finally went to another dealership for service. I was shocked to see how much difference it makes when the "customer service area" is clean, and the service reps. are friendly and/or actually answer the phone. If you are thinking about buying any car at Chevy Chase Cars walk down stairs and take a look at the "service department". That is all it will take. Why buy a car at a place that you would not have it serviced. Every dealership is making deals any they dont have the high rent to pay. One other thing, the turn over rate at the service department is incredible. What does might this mean to you? I have had (4) four different reps. LOL I would quit too. Next to buying a house your car is the second most expensive purchase, be watchful and take a good look around. Or save some time and simply stay away, that will save numerous headaches and dollars.

The service manager Rob was polite enough however the whole service department appears populated with unscrupulous hacks. I ended up having to go back 4 different times in three days to get a simple 50k mile maintenance II and a state inspection. They blatantly overcharged me in two different places on my bill to the tune of over 200 dollars which was corrected once I pointed it out. You want to pay 105.52 for an oil change? Star Pontiac is the place to get it done. I probably wouldn't have bothered to write a scathing review but after coming out of this experience, I took my vehicle to another mechanic to have it looked over. He stated that the brake fluid looked terrible. I dropped by myself to take a look and sure enough, it did appear terrible. I found this very surprising since I'd just paid Star Pontiac 152.67 to flush the brake system. I now feel that I just pissed 2000 dollars down the drain and unfortunately, that's likely the case. I should have known better after watching the service staff show up for work. When I dropped off my vehicle at 7:00am, two of the service employees were finishing up changing into their work clothes in front of the customers. If I had to summarize their appearance, I'd say they pulled 5 guys out of prison on work release and sent them to Star Pontiac to work on cars. They were dressed in dirty service blues, yes dirty at the beginning of the shift. One had cut the sleeves off his shirt. In a word, they all looked terribly unprofessional. They also replaced a tie rod end and performed an alignment as a result of noticing something from the inspection. This time I know they actually did some work because now there is an annoying squeak coming from the suspension. Am I going to take it back and ask them to fix it? Uh, no, I'd rather pay someone qualified to diagnose and remedy the issue. Please do yourself and your car a favor and stay as far away from the service department as possible. If you feel inclined to go there, just take some money out and burn it. You'll probably be better off than letting the dirty dozen get their hands on your vehicle.

Took our 2008 Mustang into Chris for body work. They did a great job on the car and detailed it so we got it back in sparkling condition. We scheduled an appt ahead of time and everything was ready when we showed up and took a minimal amount of time to check in and get a rental car. Car was ready when promised.

My Pontiac Grand Am was involved in a fender bender in which my trunk lid was bent and my rear bumper was punctured. Hanagan's was recommended to me as an inexpensive and high-quality auto repair shop. I was impressed with the quick and friendly service. Even when I had to return to have a followup repair (they had repainted my entire trunk lid and a little bit of the paint had come loose from where the trunk closed), they did the work quickly and cheerfully--no cost. It's never fun to have your car in the shop but Hanagan's at least makes the experience as stress-less as possible

Someone insured by Geico rear-ended my brand new car badly and Geico sent me here.
Everything seemed fine when I got it back, even though it took 2 WEEKS to repair, instead of ONE. I went home, only to see that someone at the repair center had put a green dent/scratch in my door. I took it back the next day and they gladly fixed it. Everything was fine… for a moment.
Just in case, I took it to my dealership and had maintenance look at it. They found: Koons put the wrong COLOR on my bumper (grey instead of blue!), didn’t replace the guard shield under my trunk that had been clearly ripped off (!!!), and the muffler was misaligned.
BUT WAIT. THERE’S MORE.
I then took it to another repair shop, the one my dealership sends its repairs to.
Not only were there all the problems listed above, but MY EXHAUST WAS NOT COMPLETELY REPAIRED. They left things UNFIXED and part of the system still PUSHED INTO MY CAR!
After so many promises from Koons that my brand new car would be returned to me as it was before the accident, I feel so ripped off and cheated that they would think these things would go unnoticed. The repairmen at Pohanka could tell the exhaust was still broken just by LOOKING at the car, before pulling it apart!
Stay clear of this place. The employees are extremely friendly, but this is not the place to go for quality service.
Used this service center before, nothing you can do about... - jjm0711
Used this service center before, nothing you can do about extraordinary dealer prices -- and sometimes they did a good job, sometimes not. However, this summer I had a purse stolen that contained both my car keys. I towed my VW to Martens, Bethesda to have new keys cut and programmed, a $350 process just to for a key. After 2 days, the wrong type of key cut (I asked for the regular key which is cheaper, not the key with the FOB), and follow up phone calls, I was told that the keys were cut but that the immobilizer was broken and wouldn't hold the program so the car wasn't drivable. In other words the car recognized the new key for only a short while before it would 'lose' its programming and the car would cut-off. I would now need a new instrument cluster (the dash electronics that include the speedometer) for $600 + $200 to install. I let them know that I had driven the car that morning with the original keys without issue then towed the car to the dealer, nothing should have broken in that short time, but they insisted these things just happen without warning. We're now talking over $1,100 for keys! I called VW USA customer service upon recommendation of my regular mechanic for guidance as I believed they simply did not know how to program the new keys, a problem with dealers that is well documented in online reviews. It turned out to be quite useless, the rep. only regurgitated messages back and forth between me and the dealer and seemed to advocate for the dealer. I was constantly told, 'we can't make the dealer do anything' and would answer all my questions with, 'the dealer said....'. My regular mechanic, who has worked for Volvo for years, was surprised to find how unhelpful VW was compared to Volvo. However, maybe because of the VW customer service rep, the dealer charged me the price of the regular key when they gave me the key with the FOB -- I suppose it's kind of them to not charge me for their mistake. Because of my interactions, I did not believe they were competent for this job and decided to have the car towed out of there. VW makes it so you can ONLY deal with the dealer for this purpose so I will only be able to get this fixed by another VW dealer so I'l be buying the part and towing it to another dealer --which I expect will tell me the original part was fine or tell me something else is broken. Either way, my plan to gift my VW to my older daughter, buy another VW to give to my second daughter, then buy a convertible VW for myself has been changed, I will no longer buy any VW's.
A note about VW's that I've learned from this: The immobilizer chip is a ubiquitous RFID chip that has been immbedded in the instrument panel in a way that you need to replace the entire part, which is design flaw in my opinion. Additionally, VW discontinued the instrument panel so you can only buy them used and possibly have to replace the entire panel again if the replacement chip goes bad. The instrument panels will run you about $500+ -- IF you can find them.
