#21759 of 32172 Bell honda - worst promises and waste of your time

My Review of Bell Honda:
Few days back I went with my family to purchase a Honda Accord EX-L car we had offered a price of $23,500 for a 2009 Honda Accord the sales person was Manny and Jeff. The sales person informed us he could try to $24,400 with his manager. But we wanted stick with our offer of $23,500. The manager there did not agree for the $23,500. We walk out of the Bell Honda place.
After few days we get an call from another manager call Ramirez new manager called us saying that to come down and he can make deal happen. We clear say that the last offer was $23,500 and sale person had offered us $24,400. Ramirez insists he can make the deal happen, as the difference was just $900.
On reaching there they pull out the same car but an different sale manager comes by his Name is Derek say he is head of all the sales people and say he can reduce the his offer by $200 for coming today for $23,200 and make an deal.
We accept the deal and shake hands. Ask the sale person to do the paper work, An half hour goes by as the sale person collects the insurance and the driver license information. Meantime a director walks in asks what car we are buy and comes back and says the deal is off. Saying there is a miscommunication within his team and by Derek.
The Bell Honda has no proper communication among the team members. Once an offer and deal is done by their sales manager they donít honor what was agreed upon. There customer service is very poor and management is donít honor the deal that was made by there manager who is in-charge of the sales.

wow, that's total unethical and I'd avoid that dealership like the plague. If we're talking EXL 4 cyl w/o Nav, your 23,500 price is more than reasonable. At 24,400 you're nearly in EXL v6 pricing... Try a few other dealers, you'll find your price. Out here in CA, EXL 4 cyl w/o nav is going for $23,300 all day long if it's a 2008 model.

Picked up the car earlier today. Im pretty pleased wih my purchase. The 08 coupe inventory was depleting in Michigan and a 26,000 sale price is as low as it get in Michigan. I shopped for 3months before I made my purchase.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR COMMENTS & ADVICE!!!!!!!

I guess I got better deal today from other dealer --- 365 EMI 1000 down. This looks way better than the one posted earlier --- 435 EMI 1000 down. Initially I had approached Honda Village, MA dealer on 8/19 and spent 2+ hours in negotiation to get them almost agreed to 300 EMI 500 down. However i could not makeup my mind so requested them to hold on to it for that night. I approached them next day but I was being treated as a new customer. Even the same sales guy (his name sergie) started negotiation all over, so spend next 1+ hour in negotiation. This time they agreed to 330 EMI and 1000 down.
Well this is not done yet.
Paid 1000$ down to complete that transaction. The finance manager took few sign and said I am all set. After signed my papers I was going through my lease agreement, found that the EMI was 579$. OHNOOO!!! When asked he said my credit score not good (634). Next round of negotiations 435 EMI 1000 down was agreed. I was so exhausted and signed the damn deal with anger/frustration; frankly I could not sleep well that night. (Weak hearted you know)
Well this is not done yet.
Next day 08/21, I approached other dealer in my area Cambridge Honda, MA and negotiated a fresh deal 365 EMI 1000 down. I have signed this deal today 8/21 and I am all set to pickup my car on 08/23. WOW!!! I am very pleased with Cambridge Honda dealer service.
P.S. Now I am still working with Honda Village to cancel my previous deal and keep hearing all the crap from them even now.

The auto dimming rearview mirror is NOT standard on the V6 EXL, but an option.

It doesn't make sense why Honda has the auto-dimming mirror standard in the EXL V6 sedan, and not the coupe.

Auto dimming mirrors w/compass can be added easily to any vehicle. Do an internet search.
