Unicars Honda - Sweet People, All Smiles, And Stole $4000

I traded in a 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4x4, Hard Top, AC, Cruise, Tilt, All there and working and leak free, solid body. For a lease on a new CR-V.

Very 'friendly' and cordial staff. Move, move, move, sign, sign, sign.

Got home, re-read papers, and their 'Trade In Value' was $2500, which is $4000 below Blue Book for a rusted out trade in with major issues (e.g. already discounted for their mark-up). They basically covered the base costs of the lease, and pocketed the difference and made sure and pointed to where to sign, and not draw any attention to their trade-in thievery.

High pressure, distractions galore, hurry up and sign.

It made me feel ***, and angry. Angry for getting robbed. *** for letting them do this to me.

You waited until you got home to read papers that you signed? It's up to you to read before you sign, even if you feel pressured. Should have walked instead of just signing anything pushed in front of you.

They do this because it works.

I can make excuses about the stupidity of signing this. I whole-heartedly admit that it was *** to sign it.

That doesn't erase the FACT that what they did was EVIL, no matter that I got sucked in. I'm certain they do this every single day, and get away with it.

Why should a business that does this to its customers be considered as anything other than UNTRUSTWORTHY.

You're implicitly defending the *** men, while I am only reporting the absolute truth, that I let myself get raped.

Worst Service in Service Repair/Maintenance at Unicars Honda

Indio, California 0 comments

I went into to get my new civic maintained and both service advisors were not only unprofessional but came up right in front of me, the customer, and told his co- worker I think this one here pointing to another vehicle needs all new tires if you know what I mean.What?

are they servicing vehicles to advantage of the elderly who do not know any better if their vehicle needs tires or not. You are suppose to feel comfortable when you put your trust in a company, but a vehicle(giving them a paycheck) They were very unorganized and at first billed me for the wrong vehicle.

My father in law who also bought his vehicle at Unicars Honda in Indio, who lives in Laguna Niguel used them and was displeased as well.We both will make the drive to a dealership who has the customers need to be their priority.

I have owned two honda cars and I will never own one after this.

The backlight on my radio display went out but my radio and and cd player worked just fine, so i thought simple problem no worry (yeah right).

I then took my car into the dealer ship so they could fix this simple problem. After it was all said and done I took my car home after the dealership and was going to put my cd's back into the cd player, when the load button would not work.

I called the dealer ship to let them know and that i would like to bring in my car so they could obviously fix it. After all it was working when i brought it in. They informed me that it was not covered under the warranty and unfortunateyl there was nothing i could do. It was nothing done on thier part and was just a malfunction.

He then told me that i would have to pay $100.00 for them just to look at it. Then i would have to take my car back to them so they could replace the stereo for another $300.00 and $100.00 for thier labor. What a joke.

Honda financial has a *** by the name of Garvin working for them who is the rudest and dumbest person I have ever spoken with.He was so insulting that my family and I will never buy another Honda again.

The dealer knows me as I have bought Hondas before and because of my status in the community, and I told them that once they fire *** Garvin (from the Atlanta, Georgia office) I will consider buying a Honda. In the interim I will work to discourage everyone I know from buying a Honda.

Honda has the rudest employees I have ever dealth with and do not deserve your business.BUYER BE AWARE!

American Honda Financial Svcs.just took my car for missing two payments.

Friday early morning the tow recovery truck was in front of my drive way. No one told me this would happen. They had my numbers and all my current info.

I had contacted them to let them know I would make a payment every 15 from now on and catch up the payments when I get my tax refund.The person just said "the 15 is too long for me"

I am very sad and upset.

I have had so many problems with Carbone...not Honda, I bought a Pntiac G6 from them and got scammed badly...then when I took the car in to be serviced my GPS and cellphone were stolen out of the glove box of my car. I have never been treated so badly by a car dealership!!! I agree with Roland.

Carbone Honda of Utica sold me an '09 Fit w/aftermarket cruise.10 months later, it has not been installed despite repeated calls, nor have they refunded my money, even after assuring me that they would.

AND the battery is too small to start the car when it gets cold. They tell me there is nothing malfunctioning with the battery. Of course not - they sold me too small of a battery to do the job (it is about the size of a motorcycle battery).

Any fool could tell that just by looking at it.

Buy your Hondas elsewhere, just not at Carbone.It's a decent car and just needs a decent dealer.

I just had the exact problem as Art.I took my 2005 Accord in to get radio PCB replaced, and now can not load CDs in the 6 disk in-dash CD player.

The dealership insisted that the CD issue had nothing to do with the repair, but I am not buying it.I'm researching internet to see if this is common.

While I was away for a furneral out of state I was behind a payment.So I called authorized Honda to take two payments out of my account.

I had Honda financial on two way with my bank and myself the bank cleared the transaction with them I got the confirmation put everything away. I came back to no car and to find out that Honda tried to take two more payments the following morning. So now I have to fight to get my car back and pay the overdraft fee from my bank. When I called Honda about what went on they tried to deny that they tried to take a second unauthorized payment (2 of the regular monthly).

So I faxed them a copy of the letters from the bank and the bank statement the lady was nasty and said "Well we're about to close you just got to call tomorrow and speak to recovery." She just hung up no bye, good evening, nothing.But I
