Car Trouble

I took my car in for service this morning to my dealership in Springfield, and found myself staring on the hideous end of a $1600 repair bill on my $6000 car, so I figured, well maybe it’s time to look at a trade in? I’ve been jonesing for a Honda Element or a VW Passat, so I emailed my contact at Stohlman VW in Tyson’s, and fired up Google to take a look for Brown Honda in Arlington online.

Folks, it is really really bad PR when the number two link for Brown Honda on Google is a website listing the consumer complaints about the dealership. Really bad.

That said, is there anyone who can recommend me to a good Honda dealer in the area?

    I used to have a Civic, which I got from Herson’s Honda in Rockville. Kind of far to go to get a car, I know, but the service was great and when I took it in to get a CD player installed, it didn’t take very long.

    Tom,

    Have you looked into the Load Capacity of the Element? It’s only 650lbs. 650lbs! If you put four adults in that car, you’re likely above the load capacity… That’s pitiful.

    I looked at the Element as well, but this very fact turned me off. Even the CRV has a higher load capacity.

    In my opinion, the Element is a great idea, but poorly executed by Honda.
