Hero Honda CBZ X-Treme / Delivery of new vehicle extended indefinitely!

India Review updated:
67% 9
I had booked a new Hero Honda CBZ X-Treme on the 13th of Jan 2007 from your dealers 'Ideal Motors, Lingarajapuram, Bangalore'. I am extremely frustrated to state that I haven't yet received the bike till date (19th Feb 2007). I had contacted the dealer several times and he gave me all sorts of reasons, 3 of which are painfully interesting, which I have provided below:

1. He told me that a new stock was delivered 2 weeks back, which consisted of only red and silver colored vehicles. Mine, being a black vehicle would still take another week. (And I thought vehicles were being delivered based on the booking forms submitted and not dumping a set of vehicles to be sold at will by the dealer).

2. He finally promised me that the bike would be delivered on Saturday, the 17th of Feb, 2007. On approaching him, he explained to me that the stock was delayed due to the strike that went on in Bangalore for a day. (This was a valid excuse if he had informed me just around a week after the booking, not on the 35th day).

3. I received another call today stating that the stock finally arrived (from Delhi, not from the U.S, mind you). He postponed the date from today to tomorrow, the 20th of Feb, 2007 since the stock was still on the truck and would be unloaded only tomorrow and then they had to check the vehicle for complaints. (I always believed they finished that at the factory level).

I am seriously sick and tired of this sort of customer service and I am sorry to say I have lost all interest in your vehicle. The payment was made and all relevant documents were submitted at the exact dates on which they were supposed to be. Just due to the fact that I didn't go up to the showroom and create a big scene, which would discourage prospective customers from buying your vehicles, my case is being postponed indefinitely.

I would like to add that no bike which is being manufactured in India is worth waiting for 40 days. If this is the kind of marketing and customer service that Hero Honda wishes to extend to its customers, I am sorry to say that it is a huge disappointment being associated with a company like this. Is Hero Honda no more interested in selling their bikes...

I bought this red CBZ xtreme on 2nd of April... Since then it has given hell lot of headache... Its not abt the bike but the hero honda company as a whole which is really playing fool with the customers...

The very frat day when i got my bike the rpm meter used to stall on 3 mark. When asked from the guy is it ok he said big yes and said if u turn the ignition on the meter will come to zero... However later on i discovered that there is manufacturing defect in my bike regarding the electricians...

Now lets talk abt the service centre... I get my serviced at gurgaon haryana and when u get ur bike after getting serviced u will find that the bike is not even washed properly... Whatever problems i stated to the supervisor, he made them oneliner because there was not much space on the job card...

When i got my second service done, bike ws performing poor... The pick up had done down drastically and engine started making a lot of noise... Not even a single prob was sorted out... On top of it there was a leakage from the head... When discussed this with the supervisor, he turned his back and walked off...

There are so many worst experiences i have faced with hero honda...

Reference to my earlier complaint of 1st November, 2007, your zonal office representative Sh. Mahajan had attended it. Thereafter, the bike was given in the Workshop for resolving the issue. The bike was after some R & D, given to me and a letter was got signed by me that it is procedure to do it saying that the vehicle working satisfactorily without my riding and running the required KMs. I was told that there would not be any problem now, and it would be roused by running 3-400 kms. I observed that from the engine head oil is leaking from the stud after this R&D. Noise still exists. Changing of gear is very hard.

I am extremely sorry to put on record that I am not at all SATISFIED by the bike as well as your people. I am taking a last chance to bring this fact to your notice and thereafter I shall have no other alternative but to go to public media as well as grievance handling Court to resolve this issue as your tall talks could not satisfied me.

Now this is my last request to earnestly get me REPLACED THE BIKE and release me from this every day mental toucher.

The Manager,
Hero Honda,
New Delhi

Sub: To change my bike shocker.

With due respect I beg to say that This Sandeep Pokhriyal have purchased Hero Honda CBZ X-Treme from Himgiri automobile at Krishna Nagar on 2nd Feb 2007. My bike met with an accident before two month ago and its shocker got damaged. When I went to service center to repair it then they told me that it won’t repair, it will be replaced, but for that you need to go for claim. At the time of purchasing,they gave me the warranty of one year. Even I accepted this and when I went to replaced it they took my bike for a whole week changed some parts without changed the shocker whom for I was claimed .Now they are saying that it won’t replaced with warranty you need to change it without warranty. But still my bike is in warranty. I have got only four services till today. Now say! Is it my fault to purchase Hero Honda bike?

It’s also informed you that I used the services for my bike from R.K Automobiles at Jhil-mil.

I therefore request you to do needful for that. For your kindness I will always be obliged to you.

Mr. Sandeep Pokhriyal

I agree that the behavior of employees and service of bikes is very poor. Even after first three services they didn't even checked my CBZ-X battery water level.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND Hero honda service centers at all even if it voids my bikes warranty, i recommend newly opened castrol service centers (or your prefered local bike service shops). they thoroughly check your vehicle and their customer satisfaction rate is above average.
What i do is regularly service my bike at castrol service center and also get it serviced at HH service center. We all know that at HH center they just change the engine oil (god knows) and wash the bike (sometimes if they have time).
So following this routine, my bike is still in excellent condition (after 16,000KM in 10 months).

Dear Sir,
I own a cbz extreme bike(model 2007).The problem with the bike is that the engine is stalled and is turning off in the rainy seasons, which could have caused a mojor acident as it today turned off today morning.I have repeatedly told the dealer (Charisma goldwhwwls)in chandigarh at every service they did.But they didnt solved the problem while also assuring me that this time problem have been solved. I am fed up If today i had an accident, then whose responsbility would be it.I need an answer.
If this problem is not rectified soon then i would file a case against
you.By the i also planned to buy a bike for my brother, But i think i should change my mind.
