THE WORST CAR BUYING EXPERIENCE IN 60 YEARS!

Wesley Chapel Honda - THE WORST CAR BUYING EXPERIENCE IN 60 YEARS!

My wife I and purchased a new Honda CR-V in July 2020 from Wesley Chapel Honda, in Wesley Chapel, Florida. It was the worst car buying experience in my 60 years of buying cars.

What I learned was to read every small print word on the contract, which I did not do. Upon closer look at the contract, which was on a thumb drIve, I noted they packed items we originally did not want, rather than list them separately. The following day, I asked the general manager about the warranty for the paint protection. He told me that the warranty for the ECP Auto Armor paint protection would have to be purchased since it was not listed on the bill of sale.

After contacting ECP, I found this was bogus and ECP sent the warranty. I received no information on the ECP except for a little decal they affixed to the windshield directly over another decal. The Finance Manager snuck in a vehicle service contract that I did not want. When I discovered this days later, he stated it would be refunded in two to three weeks.

It took several weeks before it was credited to my account. Further, when I calculated the price of our trade ins and the price of the vehicle, it was clear that they changed the figures. I also had to request the Monroney label later since they failed to supply that. They kept us late into the afternoon, so I'm guessing that they tried to wear down two senior citizens in their 70s.

They succeeded. I supposedly had two years or 24K miles complimentary maintenance, however, I did not take my car to that dealer. I gladly took it to Ocean Honda in Port Richey where I have had cars serviced before and paid for the maintenance. I regret not buying my vehicle from Ocean Honda.

I have purchased cars for many decades and have never had a problem. I let my guard down this time, and I have myself to blame. Nevertheless, the Florida Attorney General's office, Seniors vs Crime, became involved. And now, three years later, Wesley Chapel Honda keeps sending me text messages asking me to purchase another vehicle from them (the old saying, Fool me once, shame on you.

Fool me twice, shame on me).

Now, I keep getting these ads in the mail from them which are addressed to my mother, who does not live in Florida and has been dead for 16 years. Lithia Motors are garbage!

The dealer finally refunded the cost of the warranty I did not want. As to the rest, I will just let it go. Lesson learned...never trust a car dealer.

Original review Sep 26, 2020
My wife I and purchased a 2020 Honda CR-V on July 27, 2020. I had thought the problems had been resolved, but they have not. Upon closer look at the contract, I noted they packed items we originally did not want, rather than list them separately. As a result, the general manager told me that the warranty for the ECP Auto Armor paint protection would have to be purchased since it was not listed on the bill of sale. After contacting ECP, I found this was bogus and ECP sent the warranty. I received no information on the ECP except for a little decal they affixed to the windshield directly over another decal (see photo). The Finance Manager snuck in a vehicle service contract that I did not want. When I discovered this days later, he stated it would be refunded in two to three weeks. It's been over a month and I have heard nothing. Further, when I calculated the price of our trade ins and the price of the vehicle, it was clear that they changed the figures. I also had to request the Monroney label later since they failed to supply that. They kept us late into the afternoon, so I'm guessing that they tried to wear down two senior citizens in their 70s. They succeeded. I supposedly have two years or 24K miles complimentary maintenance, however, I will not be taking my car to that dealer.

Nevertheless, the Florida Attorney General's office, Seniors vs Crime, is now involved.

Preferred solution: Refund the cost of the Vehicle Service Contract. I'll just have to eat the rest.
