Complaints & Reviews

regarding the faliure of engine

Respected sir,
Your company is very famous so its product is sell world-wide. I had also bought a hero-honda super splendor bike on 2/MAY/2009. I had found some problem after 10-15 days. The rear shock absorber, chain cover created noise & pass light switch hadn't work. The engine got hot very quickly or just about in 2-5 km. I had complaint in the show room i.e in SHRI-RAM MOTORS but it was unusual.
Kindly take some major action as-soon-as possible...

producets and service

The following is a complaint I've submitted to numerous entities including all interested Honda parties, the Better Business Bureau, Consumers Affairs and any organization that investigates existing lemon laws in the State of California.

On Saturday, September 5, 2009 I took my Honda Accord for a routine 12000 mile checkup. My service advisor was Oscar Scagliotti. After dropping off my Honda at approximately 10am I was called by him later in the afternoon to advise me that my left and right rear brakes were measuring 2mm. His professional recommendation was that they needed to be changed and it would cost me $169 to perform the brake replacement.

I advised Oscar I had purchased the Accord brand new in August 2008. I also reminded him it barely had $12000 miles on it. He argued with me that this was normal wear and tear and that it was reasonable to suggest the brakes would wear down so soon after purchase. I pleaded with him that this is not my understanding of Honda's long lasting reputation for quality products and service. I asked him if it was reasonable then to assume I would need to change my brakes every 12 months. He declined to directly answer my question but he didn't deny the logic in my question.

I told Oscar to not perform the brake job if it meant I would have to pay for it. I fully realize that normal 'wear and tear' is not covered by my lease contract. However, I don't feel its normal for your brakes to need replacement after only 1 year. I also want to emphasize I drive the car normally and as required never using any more brake than needed. I asked him to register my complaint with his superiors and told him I would be filing a complaint if the brake job was not performed without charge. I never heard back from Oscar and the brake job was not performed.

To conclude, I am fully registering my complaint with all parties listed at the top. My family has owned Honda's since the 1970's. We've owned Accords that have never necessitated a brake job so soon or any other major service. With this experience, I fully expect my family never to purchase any Honda products again or any Fladeboe product. In addition, I will tell all family and friends about my negative experience. I will take my dissatisfaction as far as I need to including local and national media, internet blogs and any other reasonable means to let other potential Honda consumers realize the low level of product and service.

This is not a threat just a consumers reaction to your product. I am asking for Honda to replace my brake and realize it is not unreasonable for me to expect products they sell to last for a long, reasonable period of time.

I welcome your feedback and comments. This best done by return email as I'm extremely busy during the weekdays to talk.
By the way, I haven't even mentioned the horrible experience I had in buying this automobile. I had a conversation with the General Manager on the horrible experience back then and hopefully that is documented. Later, the alarm had issues and you had to correct that. I should have filed a formal complaint then but have decided you guys have disappointed enough.

pick up n lerk problem

to whomsover it may concern, this is been a long time my bike unicorn which was bought in nov'08 n now from last 3 months the bike is giving problem of bad pick up n also jerks while riding.I had picked up this vehicle from sai honda in mahim also solve this same problem last in august where the change the part called carburetor diapharm but again same problem has occur. kindly solve my problem..

hero honda is making fool to customers

In september 2008 I have purchased my new hero honda splendor bike. From beginning I am suffering very poor service from rajdhani auto care. After each and every service performance of my bike reduced. Finally while servicing just after 9 month of purchase, tecnicians of rajdhani auto raipur told me that some parts of my bike are damaged and need to replace. They charged me 1000 rs for replacement. Can you belive just after 9 months parts of your bike may damaged. Hero honda group is popular but totally care less regarding such type of loot. Is that group also part of such loot...???

no service

Dear sir,
I had purchased your hero honda passion plus vehicle on 11.09.2008 in my name k. Srinivasan at erode dealer m/s. Sri senthil autos, 134-b, perundurai road, erode.11. While driving the vehicle I found wabbling (ie shake while driving) from the day one itself. When I complained about this to the dealer they told that this is due to the tyres and they also changed both the tyres. Though they changed the tyres the problem was not rectified. I am residing now at tirupur since my office is at tirupur. Here when I service my vehicle at t.K. T motors, palladam road, tirupur I specified the complaint. But they are not able to identify the problem. I made three services there. But they are not able to identify the problem they passed the time only. Then after this I went to city motors, tirupur. There they are not able to correct the problem though this problem was insisted. They again come to old story to change the tyre. So I request you to kindly correct the problem immediately and send the reply immediately since the warranty is going to end on 11.09.2009. I would like to correct the problem before warranty. I expect your immediate reply in this regards.

Thanking you,

K. Srinivasan

    ya i agree with you my friend they have totally scam er in bike industries. I have also purchased hero Honda hunk bike from ARC Motors pvt Ltd Okhla Phase II new Delhi. they provide me a totally junk bike. I feel sound in disk brake from the first day when i buy this bike after 3 month the battery was full of waste and the provide me a latter that go there and they replace this no any positive response in my favor.

    the bike is not well as their name. I think he misused the brand name of Hero Honda becoz people buy the as brand name of hero honda but he get poor quality in bikes
    so i would like to request to all of that do' t buy a bike from Hero Honda Showroom. you have many option or bike brand to choose any favorite bike .

Atleast 60km/l.

scam and lies

I wanted a used car and therefore I contacted a salesman at this dealership and asked him to help me find it. It was just 2 days and he found a car and I agreed to buy it, and we negotiated the price. I needed it for my work but it needed a repair so I had to wait a week after we agreed on the deal. On the day I was to pick it up, I called our county to determine the cost of license, taxes and transfer fee. Armed with that and the price we agreed on I put money into my checking account to cover it. When I got to the dealership I was handed over to the man doing the paperwork. He was giving me the total cost which was $135 more than I had figured so I asked why. He said it was an administrative fee for handling the paperwork. He tried to comfort me with the line that if I buy a car here I have to pay it too. My problem is that this is thrown in at the last minute after I as a customer have made a deal and am ready to drive off. They know the psychology is such that most people will pay just to end the hassle of spending time looking for another car. Honest profit is necessary and they have a right to get their price, but sneaking in an additional charge at the end is manipulative, and dishonest. This fee has put their salespeople in the position of deceiving customers so they can squeeze additional money out of each deal. If I had known of this charge up front, I would have tried to negotiate a better deal. Make a through inquire before purchasing he car.

poor service from the repairing centre

I mrs purnima upadhayay purchased a hero honda pleasure from sahib automobiles. My vehicle met with an accident on 12/8/09 and I submited it on the same day for repairing. Some of its were to be changed and the things were to collected from the company. After several requests I could not get it repaired as I received the information that the things have not been send from the company. I regret to inform that I did not get any response from the dealer and since last ten days the srvices have not been given to us. I request you to please look into the matter.

    Hero Honda Pleasure service is pathetic . Even the company authorised service joints have no clue about the vehicle and how to rectify problems . Their only solution to any problem would be trial and test .First would be to change the battery, never mind the bike is starting, lights are working . Their theory is bike has to be brought for service for few rounds for the problem to be completely resolved. This is the Bangalore JP Nagar Hero Honda Service genius speaking . This bike seems to be have unique problems with accelerating, which seems more related to the air filter, carburetor . I hope the company finds time to train its mechanics on the nuances of this bike to help customers. Sabitha, JP Nagar Bangalore

worst service/waste bike

Worst service in the world

I purchased honda shine bike 3 months back then the bad days started for me it is a routine job for me to visit the service centre, what ever may be the complaint the answer from the service centre people will be... The concerned person is not there come tomorrow (or) it will be like that dont worry it wont harm you. Worst ever experience with the service centre people. & bike itself is full of problems

There are innumerable complaints from the bike to name few
Handle pulling to one side, silencer sound, shocks sound, bike skids if u apply only the bake brake, if we write the page wont be enough.

My sincere advice to all who want to buy honda 2 wheelers... Dont buy the bike's to make your life miserable

With regards,

An unhappy honda customer

warranty does not cover cooling coil

I have been a loyal honda car user ever since I bought my first car. But after my recent experience, I am seriously re-evaluating my choices.

Recently I was refused warranty coverage for the replacement of my car's cooling coil. It is of course still under warranty and I have been diligently sending it to an authorised honda service centre for every service every time. Honda is claiming that the cooling coil is not covered for my case because it was extremely dirty due to "external factors" which their customer service agent couldn't even describe in any detail. This is clearly due to a design fault in the car itself (as it can't be that dirty due to my normal everyday urban driving) or a lack in honda's service technician's diligence in checking my car during servicing. Either way, I am being penalised for a fault that should be covered by honda. To rub salt into the wound, they have not even bothered replying to my complaint email which was sent to the local honda email helpline.

Does anyone know of any honda regional or worldwide complaint email which takes customer complaints more seriously?

vehichle shaking during driving

I purchased a hero honda motor cycle 6 month back. Suffering from the vehicle shaking during the driving.in first service it was told to me that handle jam.
In 2nd service told me that fork bend, but my private expert mechanic told that tyre problems. The movement of vehicle is not uniform. Vehicle vobles during driving.

I raised a customer complaint but till date there is no feedback from the company.

I think this is totally cheating to customer

self start and starting problem

I took h0nda activa in last week of feb from pune, dealer b.U. Bhandari camp pune.
Since starting I was facing the problem of self start. I told them and they said that they willl change the oil and charged me 200 rs for that. But then also faced problem and then one day it stopped all together, horn and light too. Took to dealer and he charged battery and charged fee to me for that too.
But problem persisted and I am still facing problem.
My battery is of exide and is in waranty period.
I have been to dealer many times with no results and see customer court as an last option.

    Hi All,

    Even, I had the starting problem with self start. But the problem was a bit more grave. Along with self start, the indicator and the horn would also not work. And No, the problem was not with the battery, as I was sure that a maintenance free battery wont cause me problem within one year. But, the good thing was my scooter would start with a couple of tries by keeping the choke open and by kick starting. So I asked the mechanic at the Honda Service station regarding the problem. He told me to put a drop of engine oil in the key hole. I tried even that but to no avail. Then I decided to open it up. Opening the battery compartment is not a tedious or complicated task. Just 4 nuts as given in the manual. Here you can see the hind of the key hole, where three wires are connected. One of the wire goes straight down through a black connector and there is another connector which is white in colour which has three wires going through it. I disconnected both the connectors cleaned them and reconnected them. This did the trick and my self start is working fine since then...

    This is regarding the Honda Scooter Starting Problem.

    I have purchased a Honda Activa 3G from Ananda Honda, Hosa Road Showroom in Bangalore on Feb - 2016

    Problem Statement:
    When I am trying to start my scooter Honda Activa 3G, either way by kick or self it is not working. The start requires minimum 10-15 kicks even with or without choke;
    1. Morning (COLD Hours) : I am facing the starting problem, during morning hours (while going to office)
    2, During daytime (HOT Condition), it will not self start, if the vehicle is not used more than 4-5 hrs (say while returning from office)
    Worst Part of Problem :
    3. AT TRAFFIC JUNCTIONS (Engine Hot Condition) : It is not switching on (self start), if you switch off the scooter at TRAFFIC JUNCTIONS. This problem is intermittent, that means 2 to 3 times (out of 10 traffic signals, if you switch off your vehicle).
    4. Rainy Season (Engine Hot Condition) :If you are riding the vehicle in rainy season, if you switch off at traffic signals, it may not switch on at traffic signals. Again this problem is intermittent, But frequency is higher compared to 3rd point above (that means without rain)

    I have given the vehicle for rectification of this issue at the Hosa Road service center 3 time Before, During and After First service.
    But The problem still there.

    a. I have checked this issue with my friends and relatives, almost everyone is having this issue irrespctive of whether it is ACTIVA 3G/ 125/ DIO.
    b. I am having another 2 more vehicles, Tvs Scooty Pep+ and Pulsar 180 Dtsi in Bangalore . Even though old vehicle, i am not facing any of these issues with them (as the self start is seamless).

    So requesting your help to resolve this problem.

refusal to do recall service

I was notified of 2 recalls relating to my Acura TL 2004. There are no Acura dealers in Wichita Falls. The nearest is about 125 miles away in Fort Worth. I asked Acura via the phone number provider, permission to have a local Honda dealer to fix the recall.After waiting 1 week they turned me down. The problem is that, no Acura dealer in the Fort Worth or Dallas area will fix the problem on Saturdays. I will have to take a day off from work and I was not assured of a free loaner while the car is in the shop.
So I am now considering selling the car and buy a Lexus or even a Hyundai since the Hyundai has got good ratings and warranty.

self start problem

Dear sir,
This is to bring to your kind notice that for my activa, I had purchased an exide battery on 12th aug 08 the battery was alright for initial 3-4 months but then the self start problem started to occur in activa. We got the battery checked from the retailer to trace the fault. The battery was declared to be without any fault by the exide office. The battery worked properly for another one and a half month after being charged by the company.
When the same problem persisted then we approached ess ell motors (your distributor in dehradun). They checked the battery and told that both the charger and the battery are at fault and both needed to be changed. Thereby we bought a new charger from ess ell motors.[ess ell invoice no 09iw00537 dated 18-04-09]. As battery was under the warranty period, we gave it to exide. The battery was again checked and was certified to be ok.
Again the same problem regarding the self start in activa started. We approached ess ell motors for inspection of problem. They told that there is a carbon on contacts and cleaned it. After that it worked ok for a few days and then the problem started again. And again on contacting ess ell, the activa was serviced and a certificate was given ensuring that the vehicle is not at fault.[invoice no 09iw07156 dated 16-07-09]
After a few days of servicing the same problem persists even today. Now I am not willing to approach exide retailer as we are afraid that by this time battery might have got damaged due to non removal of fault. Further, if we replace a new battery, due to negligence on your distributor, the new one may also run out of power.
I would be very grateful to you if could kindly look in this matter.

    Dear Sir,
    I have bought new Honda Activa HET model in April 2014. Since then I am facing the issue with the self start. My first free service was completed last month. During that service I have lodge the complaint about the self start. At that time service person told that he will recharge the battery and this problem will be solved. But from next day again I am facing the same issue.I always start my scooter by kick first time in the morning as suggested by Honda. It is not possible to switch off the engine during traffic or long signals.Please help me out to solve this issue. May be some consumer portal or proper channels to tackle this issue.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Bhavik Gor
