Hillside Honda Odyssey Scam
This is a video that features the supposedly brand new 2016 Honda Odyssey that I recently purchased from Hillside Honda. But, as you can see, this car definitely had been used (by someone at the dealership) and was very likely been in a car accident that involved the left side of the vehicle (and was not reported). Here are the various evidences that prove my claim: • On the left side of the car, fuel fill door is not flushed against the car body. Under high-noon sunlight, you can see a deep shadow beneath the fuel fill door • On driver side (which is also left side of the car) frame with tail light not aligned with tailgate. It’s off by ¼” • Again on the left side of the car, the panel for the sliding door switch popped off after two weeks of using the vehicle • Both car seat latches in the second and third rows are very scratched up • Both car remotes are also very scratched up • Child safety lock was on when we picked up the car which also seemed unusual for a brand new vehicle Thinking back, it now all makes sense why the sales rep offered us a very generous $5000 discount off of the MSRP right off the back without us even asking for it. My wife was expecting within a week and we had two other little ones distracting us which made us an easy target for this scam. We bought the car on a Saturday afternoon and were supposed to pick it up on Sunday morning. The sales rep sounded hesitate and said the car may not be ready and so we changed plan to pick it up on Monday instead. We went Monday afternoon and again the sales rep said it wasn’t ready. So, we ended up making another trip back to the dealership on Monday night at around 8pm to pick up the car. The sales rep did let us check the car inside the service area where there was light. However, it was very difficult to spot these things under a dim light. After a quick check, he quickly drove the car to an outdoor parking lot where there was even less lighting to show us how to use the car. All the paperwork that we have signed said the car has “1 mile” on it. However, the actual reading was 12 miles when we picked it up. We checked the VIN report and it does not look like it was sold to another owner prior to me. So, my suspicion would be that someone at the dealership used the car, got into an accident, fixed it up and then sold it to me as a “brand new” car. I called the sales rep and informed him my concerns with receiving a car that was not brand new. He said he was “sorry” and that “no one told him anything about the car”. He then said he “will talk to his manager and will call me back”. But, it has been several days and I have not received a call back. And, I honestly don’t expect he will ever call back for this matter. I have used to think Honda is a reputable company that manufactures reliable vehicles. This is the first time I have purchased a Honda vehicle and will be my last. I hope that this review will serve as a warning to our friends and families and their loved ones to not purchase any vehicles from Hillside Honda in Queens, NY.
