BMW of North America Announces Best Dealership Awards

07.03.2012

31 BMW dealers honored as Centers of Excellence


Woodcliff Lake, NJ – March 7, 2012… BMW of North America, LLC today announced its annual Center of Excellence honors, awarded to the top performing dealerships in the U.S. Thirty-one of the 339 BMW dealers nationwide achieved “2012 Center of Excellence” status based on their 2011 performance in customer satisfaction, outstanding brand representation, operational excellence and profitability.

“BMW customers have high expectations of their vehicle and their dealer,” said Peter Miles, BMW of North America Executive VP of Operations. “It takes extraordinary and consistent effort to attain the level of a COE dealership.”

The BMW Group continues to lead the automotive industry as the number one premium auto manufacturer in the world and is the primary mobility provider for the London 2012 Olympic Games, as well as the 2012 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams. During 2012, BMW will launch a number of new vehicles in the U.S., including the all-new 3 Series Sedan, 6 Series Gran Coupe, and the M5 Sedan ensuring their position as the number one luxury brand in the U.S.

“The Center of Excellence winners have done exceptionally well,” said BMW of North America President and CEO Ludwig Willisch. “In this Olympic year, these 31 are our top athletes, so it’s fitting that we send them to the London 2012 Olympics as their reward.”

I've dealt with both Momentum BMW in Houston and United BMW in Duluth. I'm not sure how Momentum made it with the experiences I've had with them in the past. Congrats never the less to all.

Kuni may not know their stuff all the time but they certainly have seem to be focusing more on customer service over the past year.

Go Braman! I would have been pissed to see my local BMW dealer here. They treat in warranty people that did not buy a car from them like second class citizens.

I'm surprised Crevier BMW in Orange County didn't make the cut. They've always treated me very, very well...

I put down a deposit for an E46M back in 2000 or 2001 at East Bay BMW but couldn't justify buying such an expensive car on the salary I was making back then. I felt bad about backing out, but the dealer I was working with brushed it off and told me that they'd be here to sell me the next generation M3 when I was ready to buy. To top it off, he let me sit in and start a Z8 that was roped off on the showfloor.

I'm not surprised that they were recognized. I am a little surprised not to find Crevier, Rusnak, and South Bay BMW on the list. I've also only ever had great experiences over there.

I must say BMW is certainly ignoring Canada ... we have some fine Dealerships in Canada and only one is mentioned.

I for one am very disappointed to see such a list without Canada being taken into consideration.

What about North Americas worst Dealerships? Does anyone at BMW Germany even care how some Customers are being treated? Does anyone even take the time what members here have to say in the Dealership Review Thread of this forum?

Why not check this out ---> CLICK

Then compile a list of North Americas Worst BMW Dealerships
