Complaint: Placed my vehicle for service on January 12 and rented a vehicle from Tracy Enterprise Car Rental. Tracy Honda repaired my vehicle the same day and said I could pick it up.Tracy Honda told me they have a daily working relationship with Enterprise Car rental and I could drop the vehicle there at Tracy Hnnda and would call Enterprise on my behalf to let them know it was returned. I then dropped the vehicle there and gave the cashier the keys to the rental vehicle.Then 9 days later Enterprise Car Rental called me asking how much longer I needed the vehicle. I told them I used it only 1 day and Honda said they called Enterprise.Enterprise said they never received a call. I talked with the Bruce the service manager at Tracy Honda and he said they would cover only 3 days of the car rental because they believe Enterprise should cover the remaining 5 days.As the customer for both, I believe it is unfair that I should pay for their mistakes. So far, neither company is stepping forward to solve this issue. Enterprise has charged me for 9 days on my credit card and is unwilling to reimburse.I believe Tracy Honda then should pay for the 8 days and reimburse me for having to pay for their negligence in calling them.
Desired Settlement: I believe Tracy Honda should reimburse me for 8 days of car rental - $330.00Thank you,Brandtley Greenlaw
*********, Ispoke to **** the manager at ********** and asked him if he would be willing to reduce the bill based on the relationship we have with them. He claims he spoke to you personally and that he made it clear it was your responsibility to call ********** when you returned the vehicle to Tracy Honda and because of this he was not willing to make an adjustment to the bill. Due to the fact that the rental agreement was between you and ********** I am unclear why you feel Tracy Honda should be responsible for your outstanding bill. After reading your complaint I can only conclude that the person that offered to assist with the rental car return was never notified by you that you had returned it to Tracy Honda and that you were expecting us to call **********.
I am rejecting this response because:

Complaint: On 12/10/2014 I was looking on the Internet for auto to purchase I found a 2013 Nissan Altima for $11838 so I went and contact the dealer for more information. I received a vechicle certificate TrucarFrom Tracy Honda I was contacted by a Internet Sales Manager ***** ****** I said that I was interested in the 2013 Nissan that I would like to purchase so he asked me to provide my personal information so they could run my credit report after negotiating on the payment for 2 days I said that I would be there on Saturday December 13 I got there went on a test drive, and we sat down to do purchase the car they changed the amount of the vehicle that they were sorry but they could not sale me the car for that price we agreed that it was a mistake. I complain that after 3 days off negotiations and they pulled my credit report for all three credit bureau you're telling me that you can and give me some other vehicle.
Desired Settlement: I would like Hondon of Tracy honored price we agreed on.
Business Response: Unfortunately there was a clerical error made on December 9th when the price was changed from $15,,987 to $11,383. We realized this error on December 11th and changed the price to $14,987. We apologize for any hardship this might have caused Mr. ***** and would be happy to compensate him in some way for his time and gas. Alternatively we will sell the car for the amount of $13,567 which represents our investment in this vehicle.
Consumer Response: I am rejecting this response because:
I refuse to accept their offer as they have acknowledged their error for the price of the car. In my conversations with Mr. ******, he never mentioned the change of price and proceeded to check my credit through three credit report agencies which has impacted my credit FICO. However, if they will sell the car for $13,567 including taxes and licensing, then I would be willing to accept their offer. If you would like more information regarding my case, I have the text messages between Mr. ****** & I available.
Business Response: Due to the fact that the pricing error was unintentional and was corrected prior to Mr *****'s visit to the dealership we hereby decline his offer. We do recognize that a mistake was made and made a previous offer to compensate Mr ***** for his time invested and the cost of his gas used visiting our dealership.
I am rejecting this response because:Here is a copy of all the text messages that I had with Mr ******, and he never mention about the error in the price of the car, have he in forme I would have never continue with the deal, never went over for a test drive, or have giving him my s.s.# or my personal in formation

Complaint: purchased 2010 Honda accord in july of 2013. was told it had never been in accident. I asked for car fax to show that it had not been in accident. two days later I rec'd call from salesman who sold me the car, he said he would provide carfax in the mail. it never came I asked repeatedly for the car fax and was told it was being mailed. after many repairs, a person at tracy Honda handed me the car fax and the car has been in an accident prior to purchase, clearly breaking the agreement at time of signing contract for this car.
Desired Settlement: refund the purchase price or settle on a replacement vehicle that is truly worth the 18000 cost of the car
We have attempted to resolve this issue with the customer and were instructed via voicemail to provide our response in writing. We informed the customer that the Carfax report does show "minor damage reported" and goes on to say "Minor damage is usually cosmetic including dents or scratches to the vehicle body" There was no attempt to withhold information at the time of sale. All of our used vehicles are listed online and on our website and Carfax reports are readily available through our online listings. We would be happy to work with Patricia to attempt to resolve her concerns. We recommend having a third party inspect the vehicle to ascertain the integrity of the vehicle and to determine whether there is in fact cause for concern.

Complaint: During negotiations for the purchase of a vehicle, certain things were agreed upon in writing and were not delivered. I purchased a 2010 Honda odyssey from Tracy Honda, with 21 thousand miles and factory warranty with the intent of a hassle free experience. I traded in a vehicle knowing full well I would get much less from a dealer rather than selling it myself. This was done to expedite the car purchase and ensure professionalism throughout the experience. I did not haggle the listed selling price of the car, and simply asked that a tow hitch and brake controller be installed so I could tow my camping trailer. This was agreed upon in writing but was vague in the details. All I cared about was the odyssey be able to safely tow my camper without voiding my factory warranty. Apparently there was a lack of understanding on the dealerships part and the agreement could not be fulfilled. So in short I paid their asking price, and accepted their offer for my trade, and did not get what I was promised. This practice of business in my opinion is of very low moral stature, not to mention fraudulent. I am very unhappy with Tracy Honda as a business.
Desired Settlement: I would like Tracy Honda to pay the cost of having these towing implements installed on my Honda as agreed upon.
Consumer's Final Response

Complaint: Bought a used car with high interest rate,manager pressured us to buying extended warranty so lender can lower the interest rate. Bought a 2009 Honda Civic from Tracy Honda(TH) in Sept 26, 2012 for my daughter, ******. I co-signed with her and we have have very good credit(710 and 690, respectively). Before signing, I specifically said we don't need any warranty or gap covergae. TH claimed Honda Finance gave my daughter 12.95% interest rate and offered us extended warranty claiming the bank will lower the rate knowing that the used car will have the said warranty. I said we didn't need it but finance manager, Todd Suender,said he negotiated for the lower rate of 8.24% so we have to buy the warranty or take the 12.95% rate. To begin with, the warranty is for a brand new car not a used one and he fooled us into believing the car is covered for 7 years but failed to say it starts from the first date of sale which was 3 years ago, before we even bought it. So we're actually getting just 4 years out of the 7 for the price of $2195.00. We went back to the store the next day to cancel after reading the fine print. Another finance manager,**** ******, tried persuading us not to cancel and remarked: Honda is not God-made and good lcuk to your daughter driving from Tracy to Pleasanton! Very unprofessional. He then called another finance manaer, **** ****, who gave us a photocopied cancellation form for the warranty and asked us to sign and leave. Adding that we should just wait for our notice in the mail. I said no, fill it out,sign it and give us a copy. **** ****** filled it out with the store info but did not sign. Hopping to get an original copy the next day, we went back only to be told by **** ****: You just have to trust people. We are a reputable dealer and $2000 will not break our bank--along those lines. I felt aggravated. I asked him politely to fill out the form with the refund amount of $2195 and sign it. He did and I asked for the original copy, he said wait for it in the mail, that they have sent it the day before.
Desired Settlement: I want the total amount of the warranty's cost built in to our loan to American Honda Finance, be refunded: $2195.00
