My Review Of Sussex Honda:
I came in because my 2010 Honda Civic lease was about to be up. I loved my Civic and had a great experience with it. No complaints. I wanted to look into leasing again, if possible, for a cheaper monthly payment since now I am in graduate school and renting a house - therefore more expenses. There was no issue with the payments, I was simply looking for something cheaper, so I could save more. I came in the beginning of September to talk to Joe with my options, and since my family has been using Sussex Honda for over 20 years, I thought they could cut me a deal. They couldn't at the time (for what I was looking to pay) and I left - in the hopes of finding a cheaper deal elsewhere, or even a used car with an auto loan. I never actually looked into other dealerships, but I did look at a few used cars and was going to go through with one but I did not get approved for a bank loan on my own. My dad, had a bad couple of years financially, and could not be a co-signer for me, so we had to ask my uncle, who agreed. With all this, he was not willing to do a loan, but willing to sign a lease so that was now my only option. I came back to Honda, with my dad and uncle, after some conversation, and signed a new lease. I am happy with my new car, it's beautiful, but I wish there was more that could have been done on the financial end. I had looked at the deal going on for September, and it was 159 a mo with 1999.99 down. We were only going to put 500 down, so that would have come out to about 200 a month for a 36 month lease. I then understand there are taxes and such, that, was never specifically laid out for me, so I am unsure how much they are in actuality. This could have then ranged the payment anywhere from 235 a mo to 250 a mo (which was my previous payment). Then there was a scratch on my old car that they had to 'completely paint over'. This is what they say, I am not making accusations but simply explaining how I felt through this whole time. I know that you have to re-service the car and such and are 'doing all that you can' but I do wonder if that really is all you can do. After more negotiation my new payment for my new car comes out to 254 a mo. I am not overly happy with this price, but it is what it is. Joe was very nice through this whole process, and sincere, and I appreciated his service. It's just hard as a college student and if there is any way in the future that you can help me, or others out, that would be great! For now, I am sure that this new car will serve me just fine. I am excited about it.
