  1. Do dealers like warranty work?

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    I would think dealers would like to do warranty work as it gives them business and they get reimbursed by Honda. But when I take my vehicle in for warranty it seems they drag their feet or make excuses. Do they get some sort of incentive by Honda for keeping the warranty work at a minimum?
  2. Question for your guys about Local Honda Dealers!!! (very dissapointed with mine)

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I have been practically begging my local Honda dealer for business over the last 5 months but it seems they just don't have any interest in selling me any vehicle but what is on their lot. I want a fwd CRV in either silver or red color. Basically they refuse to order me one or trade with other...
  3. Dealers / Salespeople

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    I had a dealership who I was going back and forth about pricing, trying to get them to give me an OTD quote. They stated they can't do that as they do their best deals in the showroom. They also stated that if I come in by Thursday night to purchase, they will throw in a Remote Starter for...
  4. AZ Dealers

    South by Southwest
    It's pretty quiet around here.... Are there any good AZ dealers? Are there any that don't pile on dealer add-ons? I'm hoping I don't need to travel afar for a good deal.
  5. Honda Financing & Dealers... what's the relationship?

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Greetings, all! Does anyone know whether or not, when one applies for financing through Honda Financial, if they automatically let dealers know that you have done so and what the outcome is? Just wondering if your negotiating hand is "tipped" if you go through Honda Financial, giving dealers...

  8. Dealers charging more than List Price for parts . . . is this condoned by Honda?

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    Hello, Just had some work done on my CR-V at the local dealer, and when I received the initial quote, I noticed the price for a key part was $30 more than List price ($130ish List; $160ish was dealer price) and asked why. I printed out a Honda Parts pricing page from the web when I went to...
  9. Why do dealers not have Touring model in stock?

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    I decided to buy a 2015 Touring and no dealerships in Northern California have any in stock. I contacted 15 dealerships. The ones that replied to me told me they don't have any in stock, and also said that Honda is not sending many to them, they can't special order any, etc. Finally one...
  10. How do dealers deal with rattles?

    Problems & Issues
    I have a constant, rather loud rattle that's developed in the passenger side beam between front and back seats. I've had my CRV since end of March 2013, so still under factory warranty. Is this something I should expect the dealer to resolve? I say yes, but just checking. How have dealerships...
  11. Can Honda Dealers Order CR-Vs

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    The CR-V that I want is not on any of the local dealer lots. The one dealer that gave me the best price said they can locate one and if that didn't work they could order one, but that would take longer. It's been 12 days and they haven't found it. Over the weekend I asked above a 4wd version...
  12. Dealers

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    Honda isn't any different than any other make. Dealers take the joy out of owning a car! That attitude of "Our cars last for ever, as long as you spend half the original cost of the car in our service dept and only our service dept, each and every year". My car has not even been to their...
  13. Dealers are trying to sell everything

    Maintenance and Service
    I had my oil changed today at the local Honda Dealer. While checking in it was mentioned I'm due for my 30,000 engine flush. Which I politely said no thanks, let's stay with the MM. They didn't push it, but I wonder just how many people simply say yes? I believe flushes are actually...

  15. Now I know why I was able to buy my CR-V for under dealers cost

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I got it at under dealers cost and not invoice according to many Honda dealers in my area helps too. Did buy some accessories for Honda and dealer profit,though. Great time to buy a Honda product with a nice discount. Must be some hidden Honda to dealer incentives to move...

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Newsweek has an article about dealers not paying off the loans on trade ins and then going out of business leaving the previous owner or a new owner of the vehicle stuck with a lien against the car.
