Want a new Honda? Stay away from David Hobbs
My wife had been a David Hobbs Honda customer for years - has leased 6 cars from this dealership. She tried to lease a 7th, but the monthly payment she was quoted was $100+ higher than what other dealerships have quoted her since. They - not so much the salesperson but the Sales Manager (forgot his name) - appeared to try to make her pay for the difference in her current leased vehicle's buyout and what they believe they can sell it for in her new lease payment. When we brought up pricing for the same vehicle at other dealerships, the Sales Manager immediately dismissed it...and, ultimately, invited her to go ahead and talk to those dealerships - which we have. They will all simply return her current vehicle - the least is up at the end of the month - to Honda - and have quoted competitive payments on a 2014 Honda Accord. The kicker in all of this? We waited around the dealership for nearly 2 hours, only to be left with a preposterous price quote - NO one in their right mind would accept this. Hobbs clearly was looking to rip my wife off - and that is beyond unacceptable. Not only did they lose her as a customer, they lost a potential customer - me - and I don't lease vehicles, I purchase them outright. My advice? Shop around - there are many dealerships far more eager to do GOOD business with you than David Hobbs.

David Hobbs Honda bullies woman customer
I took my 96 Honda in for a routine oil change at David Hobbs Honda in Milwaukee. My husband had a lunch date so did not come with me. Rob came out and asked me to come out of the waiting room to a desk. I was told I needed a new battery for 129.00 and new tires. I knew my tires needed to be replaced in the near future but was told I should not drive off the lot as they were throwing rubber. 1179.00 for the best and the next 849.00. I left. After phoning at least 4 other dealers including Genteel, we were quoted at least 300.00 less for "the best" We went with Goodyear for 575 but when we took the car in to get the tires my wheel lock key was not in my glove compartment. Went back to Hobbs and the manager mysteriously found a wheel lock that fit my car. He offered me new tires at a nice discount but we went with Goodyear in Racine. My battery was in perfect working order and my tires were worn but did not need immediate service. The Goodyear guys were so nice. Very low key, and explained tire differences. We have purchased 3 Honda's from Hobbs but this is the end of our relationship.
