Honda Complaint - Faulty Point Inspection, Missed Front Tire Plug
SAN ANGELO, TEXAS -- I purchased my Honda Accord 2004 from a dealership in Texas. I normally don’t buy used cars because you never know what you are going to get and what types of problems they may bring. But beside my better judgment the Honda dealer sale person informed me that they do a multi-point inspection and that the car is safe and it was just like purchasing a new car. Well I don’t think if I would have purchased a new car I would have had a plug in my tire. Because of job relocations I have drove my car all over the US and I have been happy with everything, except when I come out from work late one night and realize that my front driver side tire was going flat. As a single woman I don’t find that cool because I bought the car for reliability.
Well to make a long story short, I thought that maybe I ran over a nail and it was causing a slow leak. When I took it to a tire story and they looked at it they informed me the plug that was placed in the tire had came out which was causing the slow leak. So much for a reliable inspection. I called the Honda Corporate office and was informed that the dealership was within their multi-point inspection rules and all they were required to do was to check the tread of the tire, make sure the wear was even on all tires and the air pressure was at the correct rate.
My response to that is they what am I paying you for if I’m getting the same problems and responses as if I purchased the car from an individual off the street?
