John Hindera Honda Complaint - Crooks - Automobile

Review by ntaylor on 2008-04-16
HEATH, OHIO -- Be sure when you buy a used car from John Hindera Honda, even if it is a year old that you request a car fax report before you buy. I guess it is the law that they have to give you one if you request it. I bought a 2006 CRV from there in 2007. It looked real nice and ran good, than I took it to Tanky's in Zanesville because I had trouble with my door opening and squeaking real bad.The Service Dept. told me that the CRV has been wrecked!! I did not believe it so he ran a CAR FAX REPORT,sure enough it had been severely wrecked and was put back together poorly, it wasn't even replaced with Honda parts now I am having trouble with it making loud rear end noises and stuck with the car. I can't even trade it in. Nobody wants it because of all the kinks and etc. They GOT ME GOOD !! But I have been telling all my friends, co-workers and everybody else about the deal. John Hindera Honda knew about it and they will do nothing to help me,even though they knew that that car was almost totaled and was not fixed right. I am still stuck with a $20.000 loan.

If you want a Honda I would Stay clear of that company.GO SOME WHERE ELSE THAT'S HONEST!!

Thanks for the information. It's always a good idea to run a fax report on a used car prior to buying. It's a hard lesson to learn but you'll know better the next time you purchase a used car. Good luck to you!

' is the law that they have to give you one if you request it....' Please cite the law you refer to.

Anyone can request a Carfax report--you just have to pay for it. So why didn't you get one yourself?

Some dealers have a Carfax link for specific vehicles for free and others don't but I don't think it is any law about it. Hind sight is 20/20, blah, blah... I'm looking for a used car and spent the $29 for unlimited access to Carfax for 30 days. Check with your State's Attorney General - it seems there might be a law that says if the dealer knows the car was in an accident they must tell you. I sure ain't no lawyer but maybe you'll be able to get out of the deal if they did not have full disclosure.
