Honda Complaint - SMOG THIS! - 1996 Civic EX
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- I’ve had my 1996 Civic for approx. 5 years, granted it is used and older. I purchased my car in Long Beach, CA got it registered here in Las Vegas, NV first year I got it smog it PASSED! Next year comes around, its time to register, FAILED SMOG! Ok, no problem took it to the Findley Honda Dealership here in town and they got my Civic to pass smog. Next year comes around, FAILED…..Ok, back to the same dealership got it to pass and stated it was fixed. Another year passes, time to register again, guess what? FAILED! Dealership once again, “We fixed it”, gave me the paperwork and I was on my merry way. NOW this year, my fiancée took the car to get it smog for me because I knew it would fail again and what do you know? FAILED! I took it this time and asked Travis to fix it this time or they will not have a repeated customer, he said and I quote “We like seeing you! I will do my best. It’s a 10 year old car”. Give me a break! 4 years for the same issue? Diagnostic Trouble Code Description: Evaporative Emission Control S. Malfunction indicator light: ON. Note: I do not see any check engine light on when I am running my car.
Keep in mind that they keep my car for the whole day!
What do I say to this? These guys are not “fixing” it! They are wasting my time and money.
If they were to offer me a free car, I would decline the offer.
