    May 2012

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Good deal, good trade in price, offered good finance package including inclusive service package (at the time) which proved to be false; the salesman had miss-sold a finance package and the dealer principle had to make good with the salesman's promises.

    I have used the Honda approved scheme twice before and the cars ave proved to be faultless.
