South Honda is the ABSOLUTE WORST HONDA DEALERSHIP on long island. I was a customer there for 10 years leasing 3 honda accords. When it was time to lease my next accord that i just leased from Clinton Honda (Located in NJ) i was treated like complete garbage by Sharon Hinds.
First let me say that 3 years prior i leased a 2010 Honda Accord from Sharon Hinds and thought that since i had a previous relationship with her and i was a customer for 10 years that i would be treated with dignity and at the very most respect! how wrong could i have been!!!!!
First south shore honda is preying on Hurricane Sandy Victims.. they have an extremely hard stance and are not willing to budge in the least; they give you a price and its either "take it or leave it".. is that how you treat your customers?!?! especially one that has been returning for 10 years?!?!
Oh they will give you every excuse "there are no programs for the 2013 accord, its a new body style, the residual value of your car is lower that previous years, or my favorite is that they hit you with a interest rate between .99% to 3.9% but cant tell you where your fall into that percentile or better yet if that percent matches your credit standing"
This place is especially taking advantage of hurricane sandy victims... lets face it many of us lost cars due to the storm.. they know this.. and are taking full advantage of this.. how sad! many of us lost enough!
Sharon hinds is a fast talking con-artist sadly dealing with her 3 years ago when she first started at south shore honda in 2010 she was more eager to make a deal and to go the extra mile to ensure not only that her customers felt comfortable in the deal that they were getting, but that you wanted to go back to south shore honda and deal with her again. i can not tell you how disappointing my experience was its beyond words...
I made an appointment with Sharon Hinds and informed her that not only did i lose my car in the hurricane but my wife and my brothers girlfriend did as well... if you do the math.. i need 3 cars..
the best part of the deal (and i am being sarcastic here) is when i informed her that i needed 3 cars she rose the price $6 a month.. telling me that "she isnt gonna make any money on the deal" oh really?!!? lol give me a break!
after trying to negotiate a lease she gets up and tells me she "cant deal with this any longer" and brings Oscar (a general manager) or was extremely rude and standoffish.... this weasel proceeds to try to get over on my brother and I.. explaining to us that making a ten year customer means nothing to "this dealership"... i am telling you the rudest person... leaving that dealership i would be more than happy to hitchhike, walk , or crawl to work than to lease or buy a car from Sharon Hinds, Oscar, or South Shore Honda... i mean give me a break guys do you think your the only people selling 2013 honda accords or any type of honda car(s) for that matter?!?! TERRIBLE!!!
I would just like to say that i did in fact lease a 2013 honda accord.. fully loaded and while of course i am paying a little more than my 2010 accord that was also fully loaded its expected.. new features raise the price of the car.. however i am paying $60 less per month than what South Shore Honda and Sharon Hinds quoted me at..
Like they say... when you lose 1 customer you literally loose 100... and believe me i wouldnt go back to South Shore Honda if my life depended on it.
I Recommend This Dealer:
Sharon Hinds , Oscar (general manager
