Additional Notes

Complaint: My husband and I purchased a vehicle (2012 Hyundai Elantra) on May 9, 2014 at Maita Honda, **** ***** **** ****, ****** *******. Our purchase included an extended service contract, **** ******** System and Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP). After our transaction with the financing department, we were informed that we would goer a phone call on Monday, May 12, 2014, or Tuesday, May 13, 2014, to install the car alarm. These days went by and no phone calls from Maita Honda. Since no one bothered to call us on the days they promised they would call, my husband called **** ****** (our sales guy) on Wednesday, May 14. But since it was Mr. ******'s day off, he informed my husband that he would call him the following day. Again, there was no phone call from Mr. ****** and/or anyone form Maita Honda. My husband called numerous times and spoke with the front desk/receptionist and asked to have someone confirm his appointment. It seemed like his calls and/or messages left with the front desk were not delivered or intentionally neglected. On Tuesday, May 20th, the service department finally programmed the pre-installed car alarm. However, when my husband came home and tested it, not all features were working. It did not alarm when you pop the trunk open while alarm is still on, the alarm light was not blinking when it is set, and the alarm does not trigger when the hood is open. He called the service department the very same day and informed them that there are still issues unresolved. He had to go back again on Wednesday, May 21st, but the service department could not figure out why the alarm does not trigger when you open the hood. I cannot have my husband go back every day until Maita Honda can figure out how to get the alarm working in its entirety.On Wednesday, my husband asked for a refund for the alarm, bu twas informed that we have to wait for ***** ********** (general manager) since he was out to lunch. ***** called my husband on Thursday, May 22nd and bluntly informed him that he would not refund us for the car alarm. This has been exceptionally frustrating for us. Maita Honda pre-installed an expensive car alarm that does not work fully according to the owner's manual. I am displeased with how unresponsive Maita Honda and its representatives have been to our phone calls, email to Mr. ********* and the lack of effort or care in getting the car alarm to work properly.This is not the last time that we are going to purchase a vehicle, but with our experience with Maita Honda, this will be the last time that we are going to purchase a vehicle through Maita Honda and its affiliates. Pursuant to Civil Code Sections 1689 (b)(2), 1793.2 (d)(1), I am hereby giving you notice that we are rescinding the pre-installed car alarm system, CNA National service contract and the CNA Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP). We have given Maita Honda a reasonable number of attempts to fix the issue but the goods have not conformed to the contract. Therefore, I am not comfortable and i have lost trust in Maita Honda to do any future service repairs to my vehicle.

Desired Settlement: Please let me know in writing when I can expect my refund for the items mentioned above. If I will not hear from you, I will file a formal complaint to the ********** ** ******** ******* and Better Business Bureau.

Business Response: Maita Honda has ersponsed to customers complaint. We have refunded the **** security, we have at her request cancelled the extened warranty and gap insurance. She is financing the vehicle and by law I have to send all refunds to the bank that she is financed with. I have sent her all copies of refund that was sent to the bank to be applied to the loan. Her last comment to me was I will withdraw her complaints.
