Default When Buying A Honda

Bought new honda for cash at motorista in olongapo. I DONT recommend them at all. I asked when i bought it at 3 pm if they could get it prepped and ready inan hr. They told me yes. Waited 1.5 hrs and aked what the holdup. They said mechanic is in field. Long story short was 3 hrs. had to take wife and kid in rain. Was told return at 500 km for oil change and tuneup. Was there at 510 km,,no mechanic on site(was told he was doing collections)I asked what kind of business is this? I said i want to see manager. Tey said no manager on site.....i said i want a complaint form,,they said NO COMPLAINT forms. They told wife go to our sister shop for oil chance. Wife said we bought it here,,u do it! I said ok im going to mayors office and complain. They called mechanic in and was in too much of a hurry for tuneup(oil change only) Terrible service for honda dealership. No promo helmets,,nothing!!! They told wife all foreigners complain here!!!! DUH!!! Im going to contact honda regional office. They told wife omg i think he will really complain!!!!

First, if they really do believe you will pursue action or complaint, you might watch yourself. They have your address etc and as you know, locals can be *dangerous* when they feel threatened or think they are loosing face.

If you go ahead with the complaint, your idea of a regional office is best but ONLY if it is outside of the Philippines. Otherwise it's just another local just waiting to sweep it under the proverbial rug..

Sending a note to Jim aka Harry The Horse is a good idea as he will likely publish it and warn people off from that dealership.

For those that don't know, Harry The Horse has a pretty good site with stories, information, and more. Anything that is involved with the *tourist* area of Angeles City, he covers. Pretty good reading actually and quite informative on the risks and dangers of the Angeles area as well.

That's cool! I'll look for it in the November online post of his. He's a good guy and tries to help get the word out on places--both good and bad..

Hey you're quite welcome for sure. Drop him an email and he"d probably dig up some other old photos of the base and Fields and put em in the news letter(s).
I know him but have never met him in person. He returned to Las Vegas NV last year for some surgery and he and his wife returned home to Angeles after recovery. I know he owns the Blue Boar and must keep two of them pretty busy..
