Additional Notes

Complaint: Went to Duval honda in Febuary to trade in my 2010 Honda Fit trying to find something with better payments that i would be just as happy with, i admit i was ignorant and got a bad deal, leaving with a 2008 Toyota Prius with higher payments due to me believing in the long run it would save me money, just 7 days later decided that it was a horrible deal so contacted *** **** who was my sales man who at first told me they could work with me, then reseved a TEXT saying that there was nothing they could do for me, upset i called, where i talked to managment ***** who then said he would call me back after he looked at what was avalible and seemed shocked that *** would say there was nothing they could do, even though *** said it was per managment, waited about a week, with no communication back to me, called again, for about a week, no one was to talk with me or call me back, I believe was avoiding me, until my mother and I showed up to talk to them, only after threatening to contact the BBB would they then suddenly work with me, finally ended up with an SUV a Suzuki XL7 and left happy but with a promise of a I owe for a part on the steering wheel i believe a rotary pin problem, a month ago called, i still have not gotten a call about my part, kept being told i had to speak with a *****, Parts found out it had not even been ordered yet after i was told it would take 7 to 14 days to come in. called again today a week later with yet another run around being transfered to different people, and now ***** who i was suppose to talk to is no longer im told there. Please help me out this company has the worst customer service i have ever seen.x

Desired Settlement: I just want the part on my suv replaced like promised to me so I can be done with this company for good, and maybe their higher ups to know what a poor job the Duval on casset is doing.

Business Response:

In response to Mrs. ******’s complaint I would like to respond by saying that the repairs to Mrs. ******’s vehicle were performed and completed on Friday, April 25, 2014.


Mrs. ****** says that after having her vehicle for 7 days she wanted to return the 2008 Toyota Prius she purchased; Duval Honda offers a 48 hour return policy with no questions asked. After 2 – 3 days the paper work has been sent to the tag office and bank and has already been processed. It is often not possible to get this paper work un-done; however the sales department did work with Mrs. ****** and get her into another vehicle, while I will admit it did take some ***e they did address and resolve her concerns.

The second vehicle that Mrs. ****** decided on was a 2008 Suzuki XL7, she expressed a concern about a noise she heard when turning, upon inspection we found that the vehicle needed a rotary pin which was part of the rack and pinion. The parts were ordered, under the vehicles stock number, but were not available at the warehouse, we explained that there was no release date given and it could be one week, two weeks or two months before we received the part but we would notify her as soon as the part arrived. Once the parts arrived, Mrs. ****** was contacted and a ***e to perform the repairs was scheduled for April 25, 2014, the repairs were performed at that ***e (see attached copy of the repair order).


I would like to state that while I understand Mrs. ******’s concern and frustration with deciding she wanted a different vehicle, 5 days after our return policy, and having to wait for the parts to arrive to repair her vehicle, I am confident that Duval Honda has performed and met all its obligations.

Consumer Response:


Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. 


****** ******


 I accept this response only due to the fact that yes, finally, the part to the SUV had come in, they had finally contacted me AND apologized to me for the delay, and just to take note, only took place the very next day after the BBB was contacted, I would also like known, not once was I left a message or spoken to about the part being out at the warehouse, I was just told, it "had not been ordered yet". Due to a change in employment,  *****, the man who I was told was the only man who could help me get any information,and do the order, I was told no longer works there.  My frustration is genuine. I will just hope, that Duval Honda, will extend their communication to their valued customers better, weather in person, hot and ready to make a buy at the office, or by phone, trying to find out simple, straight forward information about when a part would ready to be installed.

BBB's Final Determination: Consumer accepted resolution offered by the business.

Additional Notes

Complaint: This car advertised selling price was $29,888.70 for 2013 Honda odyssey EX-L, I have purchased the vehicle and said I will use my finance, the buyers order was created (Dated - 07/16/2013), I have attached the copy of it, then I have requested to finance with Honda instead of using my finance bank, so we went to Honda dealership to redo the paperwork, when I saw the buyer's order, the price was increased by $470 as it was showing the price as $30,388.70 which is also attached, They have added $470.00 (Actually $500.00, reduced to $470.00) to the total amount which was showing has $30,388.70, this $500.00 is given by Honda as flex cash to customer since we have financed with Honda financial services, but the dealer said it is dealer cash and cannot be issued to the customer which is incorrect, This amount has to be refunded to me by the dealer. For additional verification, I have purchased another Honda dealer for another vehicle and financed with Honda and they have refunded this $500.00 flex cash to the customer, So I need Duval Honda to return my $500.00 back which I am supposed to get. Please help.

Desired Settlement: Need my $500.00 back as that money was provided by Honda financial services to the customer for financing with Honda financial services

Business Response: Good afternoon,

Duval Honda will be sending a check to the customer in the amount of the $500.00 due to the oversight in the completion of the paperwork.

We apologize for the confusion.

The way that our vehicles are displayed openly on all New and Pre-owned vehicle and states that the pricing includes all rebates , discounts and incentives.

The check will be going to him VIA U.S. postal mail service.

If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me.

Best regards,

******* *******
