    Default Wrong commitments/Deceit/Fraud by Honda Point, Main Defense Road

    Dear All,

    Just wanted to share a simple incident of how sales man at new car dealerships defraud customers into getting orders for new cars. Recently we had to buy a new Honda City Automatic and we decided to use Honda Point, Main Defense Road (bhutta chowk) as we had already gotten other cars from them in previous years.

    We made the booking by providing payorder on 30th March through sales man Mr. Ghulam Hassan with whom we had done business previously as well and he committed the car to be delivered on 28th April a month before the date being provided by factory and he convinced us of this date to get order.

    On 28th, he requested for a few more days and then after few days, he disappeared and did not pick up calls till he returned around 8th May claiming he was on Holiday and car is further delayed because of Honda factory shut down and some shortage of some kits, which I din't fully understand what he was talking.

    Around 14th May, I called again and he again requested for a few more days and promised me to send me official letter of factory shutdown and I gave him fax# but he din't fax again and today on 18th he is again not picking up calls.

    Motto:

    - Never trust sales man verbal commitments or infact anyone whom you don't know
    - Always have deadlines agreed in writing, since verbal commitments are easy to get away with.
    - Bad name for the company because of their one dealership/sales man

    The sad part is that the dealership/sales man just for one order lost the trust of a customer and many more because of me talking about it.

    Lo ji, thats solves the problem. Yani this 5th generation City has 15" rims from the first day. Alright. That is an upgrade from 13" on my present 3rd gen (year 2000).

    gr8qasim, I think you should take a closer look at the rims of your twenty-ten City now

    Infact first they said to me the delay is due to the additional payment (19000) issue. When I reminded them I deposited the PO for the additional sum the day I received the demand from them, they started saying the delay is in fact due to the crisis situation in Japan from where the parts that they require to assemble the car here are being received with delay .
    if there is a delay they should keep you and all the customers in the loop.
    but no one cares and eventually you have to look after yourself.
    it is teh same situation if pakistan if you lend some one money when that person is in need and later on on due date or after reasonable time you have to sepnd equal amount of money to get your original amount back.

    Sad to see such situations. Back in 2003 when City i-dsi was launched on 10th of October, we booked ours on the 11th and we were promised a delivery time of 2 months because of high sales. Then Honda Fort asked for another month right after the day we booked the car. But certain events lead them to deliver the car on the 18th of October :-D

    Yesterday around 11 am I received a phone call from Honda Point saying my car has arrived . We went there around 3 and received the car. The whole thing went smoothly without anything unforeseen and unexpected.

    I am satisfied with the way they have conducted the transaction.
