Would you trust this dealer

Postby Paul Lingard » 19 Mar 2013, 16:22

This sort of thing is unbelievable.
My dealer has to drop the Honda marque after many years because they couldn't meet sales quotas. I wonder if this dealer is still on Honda's books.

Well, I do believe that recalls are graded, like into such which require instant visit and fix at the workshop (so owner's receive registered mail how to proceed, like I did, sent by Honda AuSTria about the bank angle sensor in '92, even while there had been no incidents around here), or such that are so minor that they could be done during the next scheduled service... even if that's like six months from now as there is no impact on the vehicle safety at all; cosmetically issues or an ECU/mapping upgrade come to mind...
But I find no distinctions mentioned in this report... I would need detailed information to grow an opinion on the case...
