We got a new honda vehicle thru financing here in one of the dealers in ontario, my question is, how long does it take for us to pick up our car? They told us that they have to get the car from another dealer because they have no stock with the color we wanted. please enlighten us on this one because its our first time to buy a honda car and would like to have a happy experinece with it.

thanks for the insights. to follow up with another question. how many kilometers is acceptable for the car to have when picking it up from the dealership? they said that they had to road test ot etca nd they said they have driven it from the dealrship they got it. and how would you break in the car properly? stick with the low rpms or give it a little bit of stretch and and do a hard break in from time to time?

It should not be more than 80 kilometers. For breaking it in. Drive it gently if possible do not use the A/C. Drive it in low rpms. Just be sure you vary the RPMs. The first 1000kms Is very crifitcal. Do not do sudden acceleration. Are you financing it or leasing it? Be sure you do get the code for the radio.

I have worked for dealers for years and really the new cars don't need a break in period like the older ones did. Just drive it and enjoy it. That's my advise .

Don't scare the new owner. Too late anyway if the vehicle is being driven from another dealer.

samg and tmcgee have it right.

There is no acceptable mileage for a new car. Your 3/36 goes from the time it was out in service. So say the car had 1,001 miles on it new when picked up, the inservice date would be the day you picked it up so that starts your 3 yrs. they would then put the inservice mileage at 1,001 miles taking you to actually 37,001 miles in the new car warranty.

It's not uncommon for dealers to do dealer trades as sounds to be your situation. Your dealer Didnt have what you wanted but another did, so the dealer you went to is now aquirring the one you really wanted. You could have pulled your deal and just went to the other dealer that had the one you wanted and gotten that day. It could take a day to a week depending upon the distance between the dealers and what the dealerships have going on.

Sorry to say there is no set time or mileage. They got your name on the dotted line and that's what all sales people care about and only about. Your now in a contract for that vehicle.

And as others stated, just drive it. Isn't that what vehicles are made for? Also the radio code should be on a card with everything in the owners manual packet in the glove box. Never in my years at working at a dealer did we have an issue.

My sales guy had the good sense to write the radio code on the cover of the Owner's Manual. This is the first vehicle I ever had to deal with that, so it was much appreciated.

There should be a white credit card lookin item in with the owners manual. I bet it's there if ya look its there and where he got the code from so you wouldn't have to look for card.

My 09 Civic EX card and my 99 Lude card.




I've never bought a Honda that didnt have this.
