Want a new Honda? Stay away from David Hobbs
My wife had been a David Hobbs Honda customer for years - has leased 6 cars from this dealership.She tried to lease a 7th, but the monthly payment she was quoted was $100+ higher than what other dealerships have quoted her since.
They - not so much the salesperson but the Sales Manager (forgot his name) - appeared to try to make her pay for the difference in her current leased vehicle's buyout and what they believe they can sell it for in her new lease payment. When we brought up pricing for the same vehicle at other dealerships, the Sales Manager immediately dismissed it...and, ultimately, invited her to go ahead and talk to those dealerships - which we have. They will all simply return her current vehicle - the least is up at the end of the month - to Honda - and have quoted competitive payments on a 2014 Honda Accord. The kicker in all of this?
We waited around the dealership for nearly 2 hours, only to be left with a preposterous price quote - NO one in their right mind would accept this. Hobbs clearly was looking to rip my wife off - and that is beyond unacceptable. Not only did they lose her as a customer, they lost a potential customer - me - and I don't lease vehicles, I purchase them outright.
My advice?Shop around - there are many dealerships far more eager to do GOOD business with you than David Hobbs.
Reason of review: Dealer tried to rip off returning customer.
Preferred solution: No resolution necessary - just want people to know about Hobbs' poor business practices.
