Honda O donald Honda Complaint - Out of gas - Honda Accord

Review by Anonymous on 2003-12-15
ELLICOTT CITY, MARYLAND -- On Wed Dec 10, 2003 I had the misfortune of taking a 2004 V6 EX Honda Accord for a test drive. The salesman gave me the keys to a white accord and told me to take the car for a ride. He did not accompany me and my handicaped sister. Well when I was within 5 mins of the dealership, the car ran out of gas. When I called the dealership at 1:25 pm from my cell phone, I was told some one was on the way to assit us. Well at 2:15 pm I called again and was given the same response. At 2:30 PM the salesman finally showed up with gas, however, by then the battery had gone dead. It was 2:45 by the time I got back to the dealership. All I got was a sorry and what a good sport I was. The salesman said he would sell the car at cost . All I got from them was a price that was $800 price higher then the mid range price of other dealers. Is this is how the Honda treats potential customers. They acted as if I was not a serious buyer, and the fact of the matter is, I am planning on making a car purchase within the next two weeks.

Take your business elsewhere. Im sure by losing you as a customer our business will fold.

As an avid Honda buyer, I too notice that Honda dealers in my area are very unprofessional and misleading. If only the factory would put as much effort into their franchises as they do their cars, we'd all be better off.

I forgot to mention the dishonest dealers by name: Brahman Honda and Rick Case Honda. Remember those names and stay away from them.

Here's an idea, why not check the gas tank BEFORE you leave the showroom instead of trying to suck the last drop. Also, you were five minutes from the showroom? That's like 3 miles? How long of a test drive did you need?

They apologized, came with gas, and offered a discount. Although it is a bit careless to let a car be test driven that empty, in all respect, what more do you want from them?

Suck it up, just like you sucked up the gas, slob-pig!

honda salesman must have worked for a General Motors dealership at one time, that is the attitude the employees that I dealt with seem to have, and exactly why I won't buy GM products again. And now that honda salesman has shown me (and he rest of us) how honda feels towards its customers, I won't be wasting my time stopping by a Honda dealership either...
