Review by Jimezsmoot on 2005-12-26
I'm hoping to buy a 05 or 06 Honda Element within 2-3 weeks. I want to go with my credit union and have narrowed my dealership choice to Autoland, Cars Direct and the Power Honda dealers in either Valencia or Costa Mesa.
Does anyone out there have a review that would be helpful to me. of course I don't want to be innundated with bad reviews or else it's back {waaayy back} to square one. Any postive reviews {including salesperson} would be great and of course, recommendations too.
Many thanks and happy new year to all.
Smoot :)

You should try Luxury Motors of Downers Grove, IL. They seem to have 5 million happy customers who shop there over and over. Hey! You may even get a discount if you post a bogus complimentary review on this website!

It is quite humorous how they (Luxury) are trying to spam their way to a good reputation. I don't live in California, so I can't recommend any good dealers, however I would definitely recommend NOT ever using the Luxury dealer mentioned above. They seem very shady and they deal on the net. In any case, good luck!

Jimezsmoot, someone who's looking for compliments shouldn't be so insulting...

I don't think Jamezsmoot understood the context of what guchiedad said since you would have to have seen all the Luxury Motors spamming. Don't know why he got upset though.

Thanks Crooked!

Have you checked each dealers CSI (Customer Satisfaction Index, not the TV show) rating. That is usually the best indicator. You can usually find them at the dealership being displayed proudly, that is if they are good or by contacting American Honda direct. Good Luck

Thanks a lot DD :)
And yes, I am new here and not used to spamming.
I've pretty much decided on Power Honda in Valencia. Cheapy cheap and nice as heck. Their CSI is darn good.
Thanks all, your help was much appreciated :)

Buy a toyota instead - they are built better and more reliable. It will cost you less to own!
