Incompetent "advisor", just doing the work as a receptionist. He can be eliminated to save the cost charged to customer. Don't understand why we need this middle man?
"Booked a service appointment for a regular brake fluid..."
Booked a service appointment for a regular brake fluid change at 10:45. 3 hours later I was contacted to say that they would not be able to complete the service that day and the car would have to stay over the week-end. I replied that I refused an earlier service appointment as I did not want to leave the car over night so this was unacceptable. I asked why then don’t you communicate that a service appointment is worthless if there is no assurance that the work will be completed that day.
"They don't care about safety issues"
Horrible treatment of customers when you aren't paying. There is a recall for the passenger's airbag of my E46 and I got two notices in the mail from BMW Canada telling me to bring my car in to my local dealership immediately. BMW Markham is the closest to my house, thus it was convenient to bring my car there.
1. I set up an appointment online and was never contacted up to 2 days prior. I called to follow up to ensure everything was good to go, and they said there were no airbags in stock. Well then, why did you not cancel the appointment? Had I not followed up, I would've wasted my time going to the dealer to get parts installed that aren't in stock.
2. I called the parts department, they said there were no airbags in stock at all, and that I would have to contact the service department to be put on a waitlist, which is fine.
3. Over the course of a few days, I called the service department, and my calls were never picked up during business hours.
4. I then used the online chat, the rep said they would follow up with the service department to get my name on a waiting list. It has now been 1 week and not a single peep from them
Meanwhile, I emailed Budd's to check on this recall, and within 15 minutes of me emailing, I got a call from them saying airbags were in stock, and that I could set up an appointment to bring my car in. All in all, I had my appointment booked within 30 minutes of my inquiry.
I suppose this "dealership" (stealership) is all about making money, and not doing what's right - airbags are a safety issue and thus should be dealt with accordingly.
"Incompetent & Terrible Service"
Read if you're unsure of whether to come here or not.
I brought in my 2017 X5 thing spring for oil and winter tire change (winter to summer). They convinced me to pay extra for tire alignment since it's the M-Sport package which I obliged. 7 hours later, I received a phone call advising that the vehicle was ready for pickup. I pickup the vehicle, they performed the alignment and tire swap (for fee service) but didn't bother with the free maintenance (oil/filter). On top of that, they gouged the driver's window. A call to service, they fixed the damaged, replaced the tint, did the oil change and gave me concierge service so that I wouldn't need to drive back in. This was the professional thing to do and I honestly thought to myself that the issues were a one-off scenario. Come on, it's BMW right?
Fast forward to November 2018, it's time to put the winter tires on. Part of my winterization ritual is to clean/degrease, polish the rims (inside and face) and follow up with a thick coating of butter wet wax. The rims are in perfect condition as they should be since I paid close to $5000 for them last year (OEM BMW rims with tires). Since it takes about 40 minutes each rim, I notice anything and everything. If you haven't figured it out by now, I'm the type of person who puts a lot of attention to the details.
I drop off my vehicle at 7:30AM, get a shuttle to work and advise service that I need the car back by 2:30PM since I need to pick up my daughter at 3:00PM. Service informs me that it wont be a problem as I booked this 4 weeks in advance. Come 2:00PM, I get a phone call from service informing me that they are back logged and didn't even start. Obviously frustrating, why didn't they just call me the night before? I did appreciate them at least calling me to let me know. Definite thumbs up for this as I'd be in quite the pickle.
I come by to pick up the car but the service manager helped out and gave me a rental and assured me the vehicle will be ready by the following morning. Again, another thumbs up to try to make it right, obviously they understood that they made a mistake, unfortunately I'm sure they bumped someone else to make this happen.
Fast forward to 5:30PM, I get a phone call from service informing me that the vehicle is ready. I come pick it up at 6:45PM and low and behold, they are reporting that I gave them the vehicle with a severely scratched rim. You would think I would have noticed something this bad before since I just polished and waxed the rims prior to giving them to mount. I'm not sure how they can make this right. I can see exactly how this is going to unfold, they say I gave them like this, I say I didn't and poof nothing goes anywhere except frustration increases and everyone's time is wasted. Should I really take them to small claims court for a rim?
If you are considering bringing your expensive BMW here, please think again. Service is just terrible, maybe they'll make it right, maybe they wont. Maybe they'll perform the service you requested, maybe they wont. It's honestly a hit or miss, in my cases, just misses. Very expensive misses
For the money you're spending, go somewhere else. I just paid $159.99 + Tax for BMW to damage a $1000.00 Rim, make me beg them to service my car and now have to go threw the frustrations and additional cost to fix the rim.
"HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE/WORST SERVICE EVER"
I have been going to Town & Country BMW/MINI Markham for service for 2 years. If you are a female, be extra careful or just try not to go there as the service consultants and service managers there are sexists. They assumed all women are stupid and ignorant. They are not shy to show you on their faces, with their gestures that they think women are stupid. We are in 2018, if some people think that women are stupid and they could just treat them without respect and try to rip them off, I think they do need to be re-educated. They should know better many of their female customers are highly educated business women, senior executives or professionals too. They tried to fool me by lying to me that my tire rim was "bent and oval", damaged to the point it's not repairable. So I asked for proofs and asked them why my rim went from OK with only some curb scuffs to "bent" that needed to be replaced. They told me I wouldn't get to see the "damaged" rim when I asked them to keep the damaged one to show me even if it had to be replaced. After chasing them for proofs, pictures,etc.,(they did take pictures when I dropped off my car for the rim curb scuff repair) they told me my rim was fine and their technician tested it on the machine to show me it's in great condition. So if you let these people tell you whatever, they would just make you buy new things when there's not even a need. And they tried to tell me another rim, that's actually in great condition that needed to be repaired too. I do have the tire and rim protection plan but that doesn't mean they could just make every claim on my plan when it's not even needed. I would have no allowance left if anything really happen to my tires. After lying to me and making claims on my trie and rim protection plan, I got back a car that has a rim with curb scuff that I originally wanted to get fixed untouched. They rotated my tires trying to tell more lies too. And worst part is, nobody ever apologized to me from that branch still. Even they agreed to pay for the repair of the rim with curb scuff after I complained to their headquarters, I don't feel comfortable going back to that branch ever again even I am in Markham. All I am saying is, you could complain but they wouldn't do anything. (And if you give them honest bad review in the survey they asked you to do after your visit there, they blacklist you). After I got a car wash, I found 3 scratch lines on the hood of my car too. And because of the horrible experience I had there, I now have to take my car all the way to Downtown Mini for service. And you would think that you take your car back to where you purchased it and they would take good care of it for you, sorry, that's not the case. They only care about sales, after you bought your car, they don't care. They even dare charging me $20 for gas on the loaner car a month later (even I had refill the tank), without notifying me, probably they decided to charge me after they got the survey results). No matter how much I love my Mini, how much complements I got for that, if there is no good service, I would need to give up on this brand very soon.
"Second to None"
The service is excellent. I would not have come back the third time if I have any issues with the dealership.
I would be proud to recommend to anyone this location whether it be for service or sales.

"Excellent Dealership. Professional Staff "
We have been with Town and Country BMW now for around 12 years and can only say excellent things. Their Service Department starting with one of their Managers, Rohan Beersa. are superb and professional. Service Advisors, Andrew Mak and Bobby Chan are simply FANTASTIC. The last few years I've been requesting specifically Bobby as his anticipation of our needs is simply awesome.
Our last three vehicles have been from Terry MacKay, who was outstanding as usual. Since dealing with Terry more then four years ago, on previous vehicles, her personality has never changed. Always a pleasure to deal with. Always a wealth of knowledge and very professional. Always friendly. Simply put, sincere.
Michelle Fung, our Presentation Specialist was excellent. Very patient. Soft spoken and knowledgeable. Excellent presentation of our two new vehicles and very good frequent followups to ensure all was good. Thank you to Town & Country BMW.
Can't wait for the next vehicle.
