Sales consultant knew his business and did now pressure us, was very helpful and took time out to drive to Helensvale to help sort out problems with plate ownership
Knowledge of the sales process and the vehicle detail was first class, would recommend sales consultant Jesse for any intended purchaser of a vehicle from Bon Vibra
New car experience
Nice people to deal with during this time when delay in delivery is being experienced due to unforeseen conditions by all customers
Disgraceful customer service
Purchased a brand new Kia Sorento from Von Birbra about a month ago and hands down the worst experience I've ever had!! Arrived at the dealership to pick up our brand new car to find paint chips on the bonnet, wrong number plates, the car had a quick hose down, it was filthy and a completely mangled drivers seat that we had to wait hours to be replaced. Were promised to have the paint chips rectified at a later date and after several emails to the dealer manager and Kia Head Office we are yet to hear a a single thing!. If I could give them no stars I would! If you want an enjoyable new car experience I suggest you try another dealership. Buyer beware!
Great car, good service
Craig went above and beyond to be helpful in giving me what I needed in a new car for my wife. Ashmore should have their own email enquiry address I think. All staff were most professional, although I did find it a bit tiresome fending off the various persistent attempted value adding to the sale price. I would recommend the Von Bibra business to an astute purchaser.
Subaru XV car purchase
Recently purchased above vehicle from von Bibra. Thanks to used car Sales Manager, I was given a thorough, methodical description & instruction about the best features of this vehicle. Had a couple of small test drives. My only criticism would to have been able to test drive on motorway & have a good run to test the power of vehicle!
I like my new car and thanks for Ryland making it happen!
I like my beautiful car and thanks for Ryland for making it happen take it little bit of time but I have a great car
Great sales experience, bad finance experience.
Purchased a 2016 Holden Cruze through Ryland who provided a very professional and personable experience. However have to drop my review by 1 star as the finance team was bordering on passive aggressive when trying to push their insurance and premiums. Don't act surprised or interrogate me when I say no to diamond advantage, extended warranty or your insurance provider.
Non Disclosure of Facts Upfront
I bought an ex-showroom car from Von-Bibra Southport, they said they can provide me with a car loan for the same from St George Bank. before processing the loan they took advance payment for locking the car( Now I am forced to buy or lose the advance). Once it was clear I will definitely buy from them, they offered me the highest interest rate +990 dollar origination fee +extended warranty + tyre Insurance. They put all in the total loan amount without explanation & when I asked them later why it was not told to me earlier, the agent & his bos...s said its standard practice. When I asked why this much amount of origination fees, I was told this is for getting a better deal for you from the bank (Yes it was a better deal, not for me but for the bank) I try to raise the issue with St George Bank, they said its the Von Bibra issue. tried to raise the issue with fair trade Qld, they said you should have read before signing the contract. Lessons learned Never take car loan using dealer Never take insurance using dealer Get your loan approved upfront & then look for car. Do not take any additional offers other than maybe extended warranty (that to look for a better offer elsewhere)
Honda CR-V 2014 Model Purchased New in 2014, when sold this week advised it is a 2013 model.
Do not buy a new car from this dealership. I purchased a new Honda CR-V 2014 Model in 2014. I sold the car this week and was told my car was a 2013 model despite my log book and satellite navigation system books reading 2014 and 2015. Have spoken with many local car professionals who say this is how the Von Bibra Group do business. A business model of deception and misrepresentation.
Good service and sales support
Good service and sales support from Tayla from first enquiry call back till delivery. Thank you for ongoing support, we wete always kept in the loop; so we knew when to expect delivery.
Love our new car!
Jay at Von Bibra Ferry Road helped us get a price that was in our budget for our perfect car. He worked hard to make us feel he cared about our budget which was really nice and went out of his way for us.
He organised the big red bow and congratulations banner after we mentioned our 6yearold daughter was super excited for the pick up.
He regularly communicated with us via phone calls everything went smoothly.
Took the joy out of a new car purchase
The first part of my experience was plesant enough a lot of typical salesman behaviour vague on details friendly etc. I asked several times how long warranty was for never got a definite answer, asked about registration again was told this will go through to next year questioned the cap servicing costs and was told to look on the website. When you purchase a car worth $32k you expect a level on professionalism and enthusiasm to get the deal. Paid cash and I didn’t get the joy of buying a new car I felt really robbed of that and disappointed tha...t I had to fight for registration as it turns out it ran out in 7 weeks not 7 months has flippantly discussed. The rego was honoured but not without unprofessional aggression and disrespect. 100% regret giving Von Bibra my business. The only decent people to deal with was Josh at handover and tiff in aftermarket.
Had been to a few car yards, but Ron at Ashmore Von Bibra was one of the reasons we went back to this dealer. Was welcoming and helpful from the start and right through to the end.
Great customer service but I believe I stil paid too much
I had purchased a 2nd hand Mitsubishi ASX. The cust service I was received was great. Claudius followed up with me and answered all my questions. Gypsy helped me too. Only downside I cant get finance through you. I ended up paying almost $27k for the car which started at $22 because of the add ons. A week later a friend from Tassie bought an Outlander LS 2Fwd 2020 Yes, 21K tinting, mats, rear bumper protection plates, front and rear passengers guff protection plates and she paid $21k !! I feel a little disappointed that I paid too much being a single mum and all. I’m planning on buying another car in the next 2 years and I have to really do my research next time.
Stay away - not even worth 1 Star
They are all young kids/adults trying to out-do each other...I heard them talking about it! Anyway I was told the car was sold over the phone to us, only to be called up 30min later "saying that the vehicle has already been sold 10min ago" (how does that even work)... Not to mentioned the customer service is really really bad... If you want be lied to, then go there, if you know what is good for you - STAY AWAY
Lied non stop to us
We were lied to from the start about everything, they tell us when to pick up the car then delay us without reason. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this company. They took the excitement of buying a car away.
Great experience, would recommend
Dan was professional, friendly and knowledgeable about the product. I would definitely recommend Von Bibra Ferry Road to anyone looking for a new car. I'm looking forward to being able to pick it up.
We have been using Von Bibra for the last 5 years to service our Holden.
Sorry to say but I am very dissented with the last service. We were quoted over $6k in repairs as the technician believed that the car needed a new transmission. We were provided at reception with details of a transmission specialist who they also use to refer their client to. The next day we called the transmission specialist to book an inspection and the finding were that there is absolutely nothing wrong with the transmission. The technician took the car for a test dri...
Without prejudice: just a warning for single women
Von Bibra Southport are extremely commendable when you wish to purchase a new car and my husband and I have purchased numerous new cars from them over the years.
However, from my last experience I have found that the Service Department takes advantage of single women if their car happens to have an issue and they need it overnight.
Be careful if they have custody of your car: starts out with they need it overnight then this can extend to over a week in their service department.
Used to receive a phone call most days advising that this item...needs replacing, that item needs replacing. When the car was finally returned the account was in the region of $5K. Upon checking the next day, I know that at least two items I have been charged for had definitely not been replaced. I would be surprised if I am the only single woman who has had this experience.
Southport Holden / The Muppet Show
Yep, another absolute stuff up by the most inept Holden dealership in the country. 5 years of general service stuff ups. Latest debacle comes this week when I get a call from the service dept saying they are cancelling my service booking. This is despite confirmation of the booking via email, also receiving a reminder email and reminder text. No reason for the cancellation, just a “we are sorry”. Great, now have to drive with no front headlight, no right indicator and no left brake light. You lot at Southport are a disgrace and the sooner Holden closes its doors the better.

jetblack window tint
It looks ok but to be honest we’ll need to wait until summer before I can give a more definitive answer. We were told that you cannot see clearly through the tint to the other side of the vehicle (standing on the outside). This is not the case.
Are you asking about buying or selling it ?
The brand of window tint you use.
Is there a service where Von Bibra will pick up the car from a person's home, service it and bring it back to the person's home for a fee?
Thanks for the enquiry, to assist please contact Holli von Bibra our Customer Relations Manager and she will see what can be done. Her contact details are email@example.com Thanks Jo
