My name is Nandesh and i am a businessman in Karwar. From your ad and also from my friend's advice I had booked an ACTIVA scooter to one of your authorised dealers SHANTESHA HONDA, HUBLI. On Monday 27th of SEPT 2010, We (my friend & me both) have gone to Hubli from karwar (200km) only to buy activa after a call made by show room to me. We meet Manager and told that we are coming from karwar please make arrangement of quick dispatch of our (2 no. activa ) vehicle. Manager (i think his name is Venkatesh) told - go and talk to our salesman he will deal you - i am busy. Salesman told it will take 6-7 hrs we told that we have purchased 5 vehicles from hubli within 3hrs (Herohonda CBZ and Pleasure and TVS- Apache) we have given references also but he was making stories by saying RTO takes min4 hrs and then our fitting accessories time ...... all these.

To save our time we told that don't fit accessory we will fit in Karwar showroom, he told that accessory fitting is mandatory, when we reached to Manager , he also repeated the same.

In the mean time a customer from Hubli was querying to sales executive that why they have not informed about his booked vehicle Manager interfere and told customer to show the call detail of his mobile number and when the person has shown then he was saying we have many booking, if you want to complain go and complain.

After fitting our accessories to our vehicle (almost after 6hrs), we saw the Temporary Permit receipt it was only of Rs110. When we again queried for this, Manager told that it is RTO's COMMISSION, you are creating problems since morning and it is enough of my passions and you should be thankful to us because we have delivered you within one day..... and all rubbish he was saying to us.When i asked him to provide us customer care number he told that- open vehicle service manual and see the number, he was not talking properly his behavior was to bad like a sadak-chap. He told go and complain......

I really wonder how come these people are siting in hot seats and allowed to take higher level position while they are too low level category people having full of attitude, no manners and don't have respect to the customers. They do neither value their customers not their time, how come such people be the manager.

I believe honda is a brand name but this type of behavior of a Manager results with the bad reputation of the Company

Kindly take an action against Showroom to save ur Business and customer .

I am businessman in patiala and i would like to draw your kind attention towards the dealers here in patiala M/S LYALLPUR HONDA and M/S SANDEEP AUTO .I have booked activa there for such a long time and i can understand the problem of shortage but it is unethical that they are forcing a consumer to buy accessories of atleast Rs.1500 along which are very costly and are available in the market at half rates. If a consumer shows no interest in buying activa along with accessories they don't entertain them and if you want i can show you the proof for the same. I want you to take some strict action against your dealers and inform whether your company sells activa or accessories .i hope to see stringent action against them .

Honda Activa — Unsatisfactory services

I am a resident of Jagdalpur Bastar Chhattisgarh and own a Honda Activa registration number CG 17 B 8655. I am grossly dissatisfied with the service( mechanical) offered by the authorized agency Wahe guru Motors.Almost every month i have to turn up in the agency with one problem or other in the bike. From 5 months i have spent more than 12000.00 rupees in getting my bike repaired. Last time the agency billed me with the charge of changing engine oil this time i spent more tha 7000.00 on having no engine oil and reaching a condition of seaze for which i had to cahange the whole block head.Form the time of my purchase i had got my bike checkup in the agency but after a run of 2200 i need to go for bore in the engine . This is extremely ridiculous . Either there is major fault on the manufacturer side or the mecahnics trained are not equipped enough. Almost every honda owner in the city seems to be dissatisfied with the services offered. Hope u do something

Honda — Battery Defective

The Activa Honda was bought from Saphire Honda showroom at 9th Block in Jayanagar Bangalore around two weeks back(4th June 09).It has hardly travelled for 150 kms.The battery has stopped functioning.None of the indicators nor the horn are working.
If this is the product quality it's better that the product be scrapped off.

Honda — false statement

Respected Sir
This is chandan Mishra from Bhubaneswar, Orissa.
I would like to complaint against Gugnani honda motors because this showroom provides bad customer service. I booked a honda unicorn date 27/05/09 his selsman told me that they will provide me that bike within 11/06/09. Already that date has gone. when I going to there for purchaseing my bike he is provies me only false statement inn the lieu of my bike.
I have already deposited 5, 000/- for my bike.

Please do it needful.
Thankingm You

I had booked Shine black with gray disc bike on 13th of May 2009 in Fortune Motors Pvt. Ltd. G01, Lala1 Landmark, MG Road, Secunderabad-05, Ph no-[protected], while booking I was being told that bike will be delivered within 1 month, but unfortunately they did not deliver me bike within time showing different reasons at different times.

Now after a hard talk on 12th June 2009, they have committed that you pay the full amount and the bike is ready to be delivered within 1 day after full payment. So I did the payment full on 17th June with a condition that I will get the bike on 18th.

Now today is 19th June, till date I have not got the bike and the most ridiculous and unfortunate thing is nobody has contacted me about the delivery. And whenever I contact them either I get all time user busy tone of 3 persons(point of contact) or operators say they are not in office or if I luckily catch them by dialing from different number they use to say they do not have status on it, they will get back to me in 10mins and that 10mins never comes.

So I wanted to know what they will prefer now?

1) Cost reduction as per bank rate, because I have paid almost 57, 000 which if I would have kept in bank for this period I get interest for it.

2)Delivery of bike within today.

3)Cancellation of order and refunding the amount with the above said interest.

If this thing does not happen I will have no other option to go legal.

Honda — Non Availabily/Showroom Attitude

Dear Sir,
I'm Surya Prakash Sharma, booked Honda Activa on 25th June 2009 through Nawab Honda, Gurgaon. I paid booking amount to Mr. Brij Mohan of Honda Activa, he promised me to make Honda Activa available within one week. On 26th June 2009 he called me to pick-up the vehicle, I was out of station that day and requested him to keep the vehicle till 1st July 2009 at 3:30 pm, which he agreed to. Till 1st July 2009 we (me and Brij Mohan) talked to each other several times regarding accessories etc.
On 1st July 2009 at 1:00 PM I called him to convey that I'll be at Nawab Honda to pick-up the vehicle, then he told me that Honda Activa is not available and will be available till 10th or 12th July 2009. By this time I had already arranged the money and other documents.
Can't Honda people make sure comfort level of their customer and inconvenience their customers face due to this type of Honda Dealers.
I'm planning to file an report to Consumer forum as well against this; because of this inconvenience i faced and now either I'll have to return the arranged money and collect the same on 10th or 12th July 2009 as Nawab Honda will inform me or else keep the hard cash with me for next 10 days.
Please suggest me as soon as possible, can Honda company do something regarding this or I can contact consumer forum.
Thanks & best regards
Surya Prakash Sharma.
I Shammi Arora had booked an Activa with 1000 Rs. (Booking no : 2673 on 04th July 2009 through PIONEER HONDA, (SHREE DADU AUTOS PVT.LTD), LUDHIANA. I was informed to collect my scooty with in 7 days but as I was making a call then I was said to collect it after two days. whene i go after 2 days they said me if I purchase activa with accessory then we are provided u other wise we are not provided you. I am sorry to say that today 25 days have passed & the dealer is not giving me the delivery. I am making 4-5 calls daily but they are very rude.

The Marketing director
Honda Activa

Good Day

I booked Honda Activa Thru your dealer Sai point Honda situated at Thane, Maharashtra.
The wating period is three months. I can not understand why such long period for a small vehical like scooter.
As on today Honda scooter are well established in India. If there is a huge demad why the company is not increasing production, or any body selling the scooter with on moeny or with unofficial way
I am requesting you to review the situation to decrease wating period.
I will be greatful if you send me the feedback by mail

I am resident of Panchkula, Haryana and avail services of your local dealer having his service centre in Industrial Area, Panchkula.I had lodged a complaint in july 09 in his complaint register which is only a ordinary register maintained by the dealer. No response was to my complaint from the dealer or from your co.On perusal of the complaint register, it was observed there is no periodic checking on the part of the co. either. It should be obligatory on the part of the Dealers to maintain a copmplaint register provided by the co. and a receipt should be provided to the complainant. I hope to receive a response.
