Patrick BMW in Schaumburg Horrible Service.. Master Scam Artists.. Rude.. Con Doctors.. Untrained Mechanics! Schaumburg Illinois
Horrible Service.. Master Scam Artists.. Rude.. Con Doctors.. Untrained Mechanics! First off, I am not of a complainer but here is what happened during my visit to this shady dealer.
I have received a coupon for oil change that is advertising for a complete oil change for $79.99.
I have called and the reception was polite, as I have booked my appointment for the oil change to be performed this morning. Please keep in your mind, I am familiar with this car, and I have performed similar services in other dealers in this state and in other state.
The minute I walk in to the service department, right on my appointment time. No service advisor to be seen any where! Alright I have waited and I was greeted by the Service Advisor" Scam Artist JR" Named AARON.
Yeah the scam has just began. I sat in his office and he started by saying you need spark plugs set.
I explained that this car has only 45,000 miles, he proceeded by saying its turbo and it needs to be changed every 20,000 miles. Once I have informed him that BMW 328XI isn't turbo have said yes it will need spark plugs every 20,000 miles, despite BMW recommendation every 90,000.
Among other services that is not due or needed ! Sure why not??
He then proceeded to recommend bunch of other services, that neither was showing up on the car I-drive nor It was recommended by any other dealer. Sure they would love to change everything under the hood, although the car is running perfect and nothing really is due to be changed.
I guess this coupon for the oil change is the "Bait" for BMW drivers to bring their cars and get caught like fish with the bait.
A very fast 15 minute passed and my service is done. Wow ! Express Service! I came to the dealer with half the oil showing on the I-Drive and yellow warning to change oil within 2000 miles. Sure I paid and took off. I then looked at the I-Drive where I was shocked to see nothing have changed. Still half way and yellow warning indicator is on.
I came back and I have asked to speak to the service manager" No name badge" he is the service manager on the weekend. He should off have a badge the reads " Hello I am going to scam the hell of you!" Now we are talking to the " Dr.Scam Artist!" Actual PHD in Scamming! I am impressed!
He said they have shorten the oil by half quart. Yea why not save $10 in oil cost. Its the least they can do!
Sure Its showing half way so may be it was never changed.
He then took the car and came back and said he top off it. Nothing changed in the car computer, as the opposite of every other oil change I have done.
He started saying nonsense info like the spark plugs, the sensor and suggesting more services. The thermal feature before its going to change this imaginary oil change. Where in fact it's non complete service. Yeah then he threaten me to throw me out by calling the cops.
Sure he did call the cops and nothing really happened other than them suggesting to call BMW North America and complain.
Here is my advise... If you want to service your car... get scammed .. get robbed blind... get treated like you are a non human.. get escorted by cops.. and argue with non educated service thugs ! Then Go ahead and take your car to Patrick's BMW.
If you are up for a world class Humiliation Experience then this is the PLACE!
A perfect dealer for replacing non needed parts, charging money for nothing, may be sabotage your car .. Who knows?
Welcome to the mobster dealer!
You guys are non professionals and its truly a bad image for BMW!
