Additional Notes

Complaint: On January 3, 2015 I took my vehicle to Danville Honda to have my oil changed. When the service was finished and I was paying they always review the findings of the multi-point inspection. I was informed that I would need to get a new battery soon. I left from there and went to get my battery tested and check on prices. When they lifted up the hood of my car they refused to test the battery due to the amount of corosion and the battery post was loose. I then returned back to Danville Honda to find out exactly why didn't they inform me that it was severe corrosion on the battery. They never gave me an answer as to why exactly the tech did not put that on the multi-point inspection sheet. The amount of corrosion on the battery indicated that it had been buildng up for a while. The thing that baffles me is that I go to Honda often for an oil change and other service due to me traveling so much with my job. If the technicians were truly inspecting the car as they have stated on each visit, then why wasn't the severe corrosion seen before it actually damaged my battery post? I'm most upset because this could have been avoided. If I pay for services at a place and they are telling me that they are doing a multi-point inspection ad topping off any fluids, then of course I would expect for them to actually perform it and report back their findings. I've sent 2 emails with no response at all.

Desired Settlement: I would really apprecite if a representative would call to apologize and reconcile the situation.

Business Response: Our  Service Director, ***** ******, contacted ***** ******** on Monday, Jan. 26, 2015 at 2:21 p.m.  He apologized to her and asked her what he could do to earn back her faith in our dealership.  She said the apology and explaination was enough!  He also gave her a 5000 mile service free of charge as a gesture of Goodwill.  He noted this in the customer's file so there would be no confusion when she came back in.
