America Honda Finance Corp Complaint - Non acceptance of 2nd party checks.

Review by NBump on 2002-05-25
ALPHARETTA, GEORGIA -- I have leased cars since 1988 from GMAC, FMCC, Infinity (Nissan) in both Canada and the U.S. I sent two checks for my lease payment (both on the same credit union, the one for $55 was returned as it was not made out to A.H.F.C., but it was correctly endorsed to them.
I am retired from the US Navy (38+yrs)in 1994.
Since then I have worked with the Naval Sea Cadet Corps (volunteer to Congressional recognized youth group since 1962). I take about 100 cadets for 7-8wks on Afloat Tng on 6-7 Navy ships. Teir cost is $7.00/day/cadet for food. I get 20-25 checks. I front the money and have always been able to pay any bill including lease cars (Acura TL S, 2002) until May 13th of this year. 6 Emails and 4 telephone calls do not resolve the problem. Honda Legal in CA stated: "We prefer checks written to A.H.F.C." That means the Atlanta
Alpharetta, GA has adopted a firm policy in conflict with their own legal section. You may try 800/543-5636. I asked for the Supvr, got (2) who both gave me the run around. My Navy Federal Credit Union is 200 miles north of my residence of Palm Bay, FL. What is the worth of an endorsement when foreign company's making billions, selectively ignore
our right to endorse a check to pay them?

Accepting 25 two-party checks runs the dealership a greater risk of having the checks returned than accepting one check from you.

Would you like to pay them the additional to process all those cheques? If your not happy that you are not reaping the benifits of tham making money, I'm sure you are more than welcome to purchase some of their stock.
