I purchased a used 2005 Honda Pilot in August of 2010 (85,000 miles). The purchase took almost two weeks and in my excitement to purchase the car, I was jokingly called a, "stalker." This was my dream car and I found no humor in this joke, it was truly offensive.
I found the sales staff were typical sales types, those I look to avoid and whom make me feel very uncomfortable (pushy & sneaky). Keep in mind that I was married to a finance manager for 7 years so I know what to look for and how a customer should be treated. I should have trusted my gut and gone with another dealer. Even though the car was "guaranteed" for 500 miles, when I had it checked out by another dealership which found a number of things wrong with the vehicle to which I provided documentation, my documentation was swept under the rug and my phone calls were never returned in regards to having these items fixed. So much for the guarantee. This is totally unethical. I was even told by the sales staff that they do not certify vehicles because it is too expensive (presumably to do the right thing).
6 months later my car began shaking violently. I took it into the shop where they found that one of the tires was the WRONG SIZE. I had to purchase 4 new tires and get my car balanced and aligned. 6 months later my radiator went and a month ago the transmission started to go. I have since sold the vehicle.
Although I originally approached the dealership due to the low prices, in the end I paid much more than the vehicle was worth. It wasn't worth it. Take your money elsewhere, it's worth the investment in quality of the car and customer respect.
