    We purchased the CR-V Hybrid primarily for the hybrid function producing better gas mileage. We accepted less features than other comparables to get the hybrid. We have about 21,000 miles on the vehicle. Until the last few hundred miles, we have not come close to the sticker mpg--in fact it has been about 10 under the low in the advertised 34-40 mpg. We were getting better than that with a 10 year old gas Subaru. In addition, we are now told that new tires will be needed within a few months--only 20,000 miles on the car. We are told that Honda intentionally puts softer tires on this vehicle to help with gas mileage. So, not only will we prematurely spend to get new tires, we will then get even worse mpg because we will get a better tire. We had 60,000 on our Subaru before we needed new tires. I will never purchase any model Honda ever again and am advising against a Honda to anyone with whom I discuss vehicles.

    Contract & Terms

    I'm deeply dissatisfied with my recent encounter at Ocean Honda in Burlingame. Throughout my interactions with Niko and the sales manager, Billy, I encountered manipulative behavior regarding the withholding of my 2021 Venza key, done without any valid explanation. Despite my repeated requests for its return, they obstinately refused to comply. Additionally, they significantly undervalued my vehicle by $3210, resulting in a substantial loss. This discrepancy became evident when I reviewed my contract with a reputable trade-in dealer.

    Initially, Niko and Billy appeared welcoming and enthusiastic about earning my business. However, it became apparent that their intentions were to exploit my financial situation. I find their actions unethical and deceptive. Consequently, I feel compelled to lodge a formal complaint with the FTC and explore legal avenues to address their behavior. Furthermore, when I requested the return of my old car keys, the manager callously declined. My initial visit to the dealership was for inquiries only, not to make a purchase. Despite CarMax appraising my car at nearly $28k, Ocean Honda's trade-in offer was a mere $500, which is clearly a deceptive practice.

      I purchased a 2021-CRV Touring model in 2022 as a "Certified Pre-Owned" car. Unfortunately the car's electronics were no good. The battery died over and over. The local Honda dealer spent a week trying to diagnose and correct the problem. They replaced the battery, but the car continued to suffer from rapid draining of the battery. Yesterday I took the car in for a trade with the local Honda dealer. It had only 16,000 miles and two keys. They gave me a 2018 HRV with 61,000 miles and only one key, a 2-year limited warranty, not certified pre-owned, and promised to send a check for $200 as the difference. I will never buy Honda again.

      I bought my 01 in 2004, with only 41kmiles. It's been severely neglected. Trans 1st gear was a hard jerk often, beginning in '10, after mismatched tires put on the awd. For 8 years, it never got worse! Never engine light. Got scammed when traded for another trans to be installed- that was JUNK, used Dollar Tree fluid, instead of ATF after I REPEATEDLY stressed to use only ATF! After that, my lovely engine would sound like metal was caught grinding through it occasionally, was never right again. But it still drove for 2 years, until Catalytic stolen, radiator went out. Now it sits in drive awaiting its death. *Hands down best vehicle in the snow by FAR. Statewide road closure & we went all day never slipping once! Never an issue getting anywhere or through anything. Not even deep wet sand. Can pack anything into it/great storage!

      Best purchase I ever made. Paid $15k loaded: leather, hitch, hard shell, rack tinted, pwr. Though window motors do suck like none other. Never once used the table (too much on top of it). Sounds like I may have bought the last of the best years. Wish I had a good case for a GoFundMe to get it going again. It's likely to go to junk yard before spring.

      To say we are satisfied with this auto is totally false. This CR-v was purchased new in 2018 and up until recently we were happy with the SUV. Problem started with the steering-at first I noticed a stiffness to it along with a slight jerking. Took it in to a local Honda dealer and found nothing wrong. A month went by and the symptoms worsened making it harder to steer and the jerking was more pronounced. The problem turned out to be the electric steering-rack and pinion needed replaced. The cost to me was $3500.00. Honda would not reimburse me any money as "I wasn't a loyal customer". Since I bought the car at Coggin I've had most of the maintenance done there. To say that this SUV's annual cost is $250.00 is a joke! I spend that much or more with each appointment! No, I won't buy another Honda!!!

      Hybrids...There is no spare tire and no space for one. They don't tell you this. You get a pump for a flat but I had a blowout and had to be towed to a tire store. 4-hour process. If you get stuck in the're out of luck.

      Customer Service

      Reviewed Oct. 24, 2023

      I send an inquiry to correct tire size to 'Honda customer relations'. The answer received, 3 days after inquiry was sent, was to call a dealership (which I had done before sending an inquiry). No answer on a tire size from the company? About as basic customer care one could ask for. Seriously lame customer service.

      First of all, this model doesn't have auto headlights on option. I got first traffic ticket for not turned on lights while driving from mall parking lot to exit road. There is 7 years engine head gasket leak. Spent $800 to replace it at Honda dealer. Now no oil in the dipstick. They found leak in the timing cover gasket. This has to be fixed $1385, then later it should be diagnosed for oil leak $285, that repair may take thousand bucks. It's crap vehicle. Less than 50k miles on it.

      I bought a brand new CR-V in 2021. The tires failed inspection after only 25,000 km. New tires will cost more than $1400. Disgraceful service from Customer Relations. It took 4 weeks for them to even bother to return my call and then they offered very little. I regret buying this vehicle and will NEVER buy a Honda product again. Not worth the money I paid. Honda put garbage tires on the brand new vehicle and then did NOT support them. I am completely disgusted and disappointed in Honda.

      My wife had a 2017 Honda CRV. One day she heard a noise and came home. The Turbo had blown. We went to a garage and had it looked at. They showed me the turbo that had basically disintegrated due to being made of what looked like tin. After weeks of providing the receipts provided by the mechanic that did her maintenance as well as a letter from him, they denied our warranty (we paid approximately $4000 for) as they said that there was sludge in the motor due to not servicing the vehicle. After many phone calls, emails, and more phone calls and emails, they told my wife it was going to cost us about $28,000 to fix the 2017 crv. After weeks and weeks, they offered my wife $6500 for the piece of scrap. Not only will we NEVER buy a Honda again, my entire family (14 Hondas) will NEVER go with Honda again. Don't waste your money on the overpriced pieces of scrap metal.
