I’ve (somewhat unfortunately) had to visit BMW of Fairfax Collision Center several times over the past 18 months to have various body damage repaired. Every time the experience has been beyond phenomenal. While the quality and timeliness of the repairs is excellent, what really stands out is the customer service. Whether it’s been to push my insurance company to authorize having the car repaired the right way (rather than the cheapest way) or helping me deal with the results of my own inability to drive without bumping into stuff, the staff has always been professional, friendly, and very helpful. I normally wouldn’t look forward to visiting a body shop, but I always enjoy visiting the BMW of Fairfax Collision Center...BMW of Fairfax’s regular service center could definitely learn from them. Ian and Henry have both helped me, with both being excellent!!

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.
Repair outstanding - NielK
Excellent repair. Completed when they said it was to be done. All employee contact was outstanding. I would recommend their collision repair to everyone. There were no surprises
BEWARE! Someone insured by Geico rear-ended my brand... - AMBD
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.
No customer service - disappointed
It took 3.5 weeks to repair a bumper on my 2018 GLC Mercedes. In that time, not once did they call me to update me. When we tried to call them we would often have to call 2-4 times before someone would answer - we found very quickly that leaving a message did not work. The excuse for not getting the fairly common part was that it was ordered from Florida and the hurricane delayed shipping. Actually we brought the car in at least a week before the hurricane. Was there no other part in the whole country that was not in t he hurricane zone? At the very least, you would think they would call me. My husband had to take over calling because I was so frustrated. He found out that the car might be available today - when we got there and I told the manager that we had not received a call he turned to the secretary and she said she was going to call us. I had to laugh. The work on the car is ok but if you expect even a tiny amount of customer service, don't go here!
Life savers! - ubguilty
Kudos to your superb Service department. Our 2017 Azera engine overheating and we're on vacation 336 miles from home. Service representative Helen Reedy accommadated us with an emergency appointment the following morning. The staff along with the help of Tom Shaw had us on the road in a day and a half. We were able to salvage the remainder of our trip with a loaner car they provided!
Watch out for Pounding Mill Ford's service department! I... - tangier
Watch out for Pounding Mill Ford's service department! I took my Lincoln there and, after hooking the car up to the diagnostic machine, they claimed a cylinder needed a new coil and plug. A couple hours later I was told the car ran fine now and gladly paid them $180.
Shortly after leaving, I noticed the exact same "missing" which they claimed to have fixed.
When Pounding Mill Ford was told about this, they said I would have to pay for a new diagnostic. Of course, if they are once again wrong, I will be wasting even more money on whatever "repair" they recommend. Will be taking my business elsewhere.

After having a terrible Sales experience years ago, I decided to give Rosenthal Jeep another chance for body shop service. My experience was even worse this time. after informing me that my Jeep was ready, I came to pick up my SUV, and there was still a dent in the door. Days later, after returning to Rosenthal, once again, I noticed that there was a dent in my front bumper (that was not there before). After speaking to the body shop Manager, he expressed in a very unenthused manner "it must have been hit in the lot". He did agree to fix the damage, but when I asked for some kind of gesture of discount toward the original repairs for my inconvenience and time away work, he said he needed to think about it, and would call me the next day. He never called. The manner in which this situation was handled is inexcusable. Mistakes happen, but there was no follow up, care or concern by the original Estimator handling the job or the Body Shop Manager. An Estimator named Andrew Ross was the only person who ever tried to help me. And my Jeep was more damaged after I left Rosenthal, then when I first brought it in. I will NEVER return to Rosenthal Jeep in Arlington. It's too bad, because I live less than 2 miles from there and they have lost a customer. I will make sure to tell all of my friends and family about my experience. BEWARE of this dealer!
