I spent four days, picketing in front of the Wilsonville Honda dealership, last week. My sign said: "Beware of Extended Warranties at Wilsonville Honda. "
Many drivers going by, stopped to tell me their personal horror story at this dealership and thanked me for being there sharing my view with the drivers going by. Standing in front of their dealership and facing Hwy 5, hundreds of cars if not thousands went by, honking and giving me their thumbs up. To the ones that stopped by me, and wanted to know what happened I warned them about going into this Honda dealership and believing what they say. I am very happy with my new Honda car, but consumers need to be aware, that at this dealership their word means nothing unless they write down what they say. I paid over a thousand dollars for an extended warranty that covers five years and one year later, July 27th when I took my car in, they told me that my warranty was only good for bird droppings and UV damage to the paint. Of course I was upset about it, and he morning manager said that in two weeks I would receive a full refund. I made my second mistake when I believed him. I should have told him to write it down and sign it. The Honda owner, Mr. Johnstone is saying that it never happened because I don't have the name of the manager that told me they would be refunding me the money.
I will be picketing again starting tomorrow morning September 11th and will continue until they refund the money they owe me. By the way, in Mr. Johnstone's email he stated that I have an agressive nature, I guess that if I was a man fighting for my rights he would have called me assertive.
