I bought my first brand new car ever from Janice for my future wife and I. Well let's face it, it's more hers than mine. Janice was just as new as our car was to the dealership and she did a good job.
We bought our 2014 Civic in November 2014 and 5 months later, and only 3,490 miles, we went in for a preventative oil change (free 1st one) because we are moving to Ohio this week and driving the car there. Their service express manager shows me an otherwise perfectly new looking tire on my car with no damage to it except a bubbling sidewall and tells me road damaged tires aren't covered by Honda and my vehicle is unsafe to drive. He then tells me I need a $160 new tire. I told him we never hit anything in that car hard enough to bow a sidewall. There's no tire scuffs or rim damage. He tells me the damage to the tire doesnt have to be visible for it to be road damaged.
So after a LOT of argument, and him stating no other manager is at the dealership that Saturday but him, he drops the price to $140. Oh, and did I mention our turn signal camera ceased working properly on our new car as well? Yep. 5 months old and needing a new tire and electronic equipment failing in our Civic.
New tire later. Driving the car Sunday, 1 day after the "NEW" tire is on it. Tire pressure sensor comes on. We check the new tire. The rubber on the supposed new tire is peeling off the sidewalls and inside the tire. Literally peeling. Going back on Monday to demand my money back and for them to make this right. I should have never been charged in the 1st place for a tire, and this shows the ones they are using are unsafe and defective.
I'm going to be calling Honda corporate and lodging a complaint against this dealership and it's shady mechanics manager and cars. Apparently they are willing to lose a first time Honda customer by selling cars with tires that can kill them and then blame the customer.
I Recommend This Dealer:
