SC/NC dealers

Looking for a 2009/2010 in the next few months. Would like to hear what dealers to stay away from and what dealers bent over backward to make you a new owner.

Especially want to hear about Rock Hill/Charlotte area dealers.

Thanks!

Re: SC/NC dealers

Well, I bought my Ridge in NJ and moved to NC, so I don't really have any stories about the sales side of this dealer, but I do go to Metro Honda for my service. They are located on 74 in Indian Trail.

Been there about 3 times and they are very nice and professional. If I were in the market for another Honda, I would consider them.

Re: SC/NC dealers

I didn't really encounter any standout dealers when buying my 06

Concord is a volume dealer, so you're just a number to them. Go there if you don't really care about making new friends and all you want is to negotiate.

Crown is old-school. Salesman will run back & forth several times to the sales tower. Expect them to get at least one thing wrong (in their favor).

The dealer in Rock Hill had only one RL on the lot (when I visited) and it was loaded with dealer add-ons. Didn't actually talk to a salesman, as they were strangely closed that day (might have been a Sunday?)

There's a new dealer in Huntersville - no experience with them.

No experience with Metro, either.

Best of luck.

Re: SC/NC dealers

Breakaway Honda in Greenville, SC is the largest dealer in SC. I've bought 2 cars there, no haggling, awesome pricing both times.

my only gripe is I feel they slipped in a $225 tire warranty into my most recent deal and after driving 3 hours to get there, and 1.5 hours at the dealer I figured it was just weird math on the truth in lending sheet. even with that, I still feel like I got an AWESOME deal. I was in and out in 2 hours. I got bluebook for my trade which was a 1999 CRV with 165000 miles that needed 4 struts, 2 windows didn't work, so I was thrilled with that too. they also included a full bumper to bumper warranty through 100k miles on top of the honda certified warranty.

happy shopping!

Re: SC/NC dealers

Forgot about Breakaway.

I haven't shopped there, but I took my CR-V by there a couple of times for service and was very happy.

Re: SC/NC dealers

We've bought two Hondas from Honda of Rock Hill, an Odyssey and the RL. Working to trade the Odyssey for a Pilot now. Service department is very good - loaners are usually available if you need one. I deal with Haskell Chisolm and he has made us some good deals on our vehicles. Don't know much about the other sales staff, but call Haskell.

Bought my Bali Blue RTL a year ago and they brought it down from another NC dealer at no charge.

Thumbs up for the Rock Hill dealer from me...

Re: SC/NC dealers

I stopped by while they were closed (Rock Hill) and did note that every vehicle on the lot had a dealer add on sticker for the "Hendrick Protection Package" and either mudflaps, wheel locks or a pinstripe. Then they stick a big orange sign on the window claiming a reduced price that subtracts the dealer add ons, bringing the price to MSRP.

We'll see. Anyone deal with the place in Blythwood next to the new Dick Dyer Toyota?

Re: SC/NC dealers

I'll sure second the vote for Lumberton Honda (Lumberton, NC). I got my '08 there two years ago this month, and I couldn't have been happier with the deal. I'd gotten several quotes from other Honda dealers, and some as far away as Tennessee. I took the deals to Lumberton Honda, and they beat all of them. Faye Taylor was my salesperson, and she's tops. Still love talking with her when I go in for my service. The service manager has been VERY straightforward, and even told me how I could save money on the service visits by doing the work myself. (Which I did.) Good dealership....good people.
