What's the longest your car has been at the dealer?
Hey guys,

Just bored at work thinking about having to drive that damn loaner home in the next few minutes haha. How long has your car car been at the dealer at one appointment? I am going on 4 and 1/4 weeks now.... It started with the battery power supply recall, then my SA called and said the tech hears rattle on decel so their warrantying the Turbos, then they called and said something broke and they needed to order parts from Germany....... ugh. I am not one to complain about the loaner I get but 4 and 1/2 weeks in an F30 328 (base base base with 20's on it :rolleyes2 ) gets old quick.

My X5 35d transmission went out took 2 weeks to get it from Germany so total of 3 weeks for me.

1 day for me, they replaced my water pump while it was under warranty.

mmmcookies335i 04-30-2013 12:20 PM

They had my car for just over a week to do the rattle repair. I had a 2012 128i loaner. Didn't even look at the rims.

They broke my clutch slave cylinder (the factory-installed plastic one) and replaced it. But I guess they had one on hand. When the slave broke they called me to ask if they could replace my blue "racing" brake fluid with OEM fluid. Gee what service!

They also said they ordered the turbos from the big D, but it took a couple days to arrive.

4.25 weeks is ridiculous. I think I would have gone nuts.

Look at the bright side. At least the loaner is free ...

mmmcookies335i 05-01-2013 01:08 PM

I'm not complaining about the loaner, free is free, it's less miles put on my car. it's actually going on 6 weeks now lol ahh it will be like picking up a new car at this point:bellyroll:

6 weeks is a LONG time. Your car will feel like a stranger when you get it back.

Almost sounds like the techs are hooning your car and having to fix stuff they break ... nah, they wouldn't do that, would they? ;)

mmmcookies335i 05-02-2013 01:09 PM

sure they would haha, they have broken three separate things already, which is why it is taking so long. They also scratched my fender (pretty bad) so that had to be addressed. I would say the dealer name but this is the first time I have had a bad experience, I have been going to them for 5 years (4 separate BMW's) and have never had a problem so I don't want to put it out there that its a horrible place when really its not.

4 months, hit a deer. Body shop ruined the transmission. Long process of battles of insurance companies.

mmmcookies335i 05-02-2013 01:33 PM

ooph, yeah that takes the cake, I would of purchased something else before that.

Thought about it many many times. Glad I didn't though.

mmmcookies335i 05-03-2013 11:45 AM

Got it back today wooooo!

v8bait 05-07-2013 04:20 PM

14 days and counting. They did the battery recall and proceeded to drive another car into mine.

And the soulless F30 loaner? I feel your pain.

brendan 08-04-2013 01:06 AM

12 days with no phone call from dealer. 20 odd days before i got car back not fixed. took it to find codes for vanos and boost leak.
BMW couldnt find it even though they did a "vaccume test".$586
I found boost leak under inlet manifold nipple broke off weeks later.

Have not been back to dealer since!
