How do they look from outside. I mean is there any visual sign of the sensors being fitted?? are they visible?? Can you submit pics of the fitting please? Which brand? (Is it a set of 6, or 4 and 2 of different sets?)

This is the letter I have just written (again) to Honda India. Lets see what they do. I have faxed it to their office and also sent it to their customer care.

To,
The Chairman / President
Honda Siel Cars India Ltd.
Plot No. A-1, Sector 40/ 41
Surajpur-Kasna Road
Greater Noida Industrial Development Area
Distt. Gautam Budh Nagar
U.P. 201 306

Dear Sir,

I am writing in continuation of my earlier letters detailing my problems with the rear suspension. On Sunday I had called up Mr. Adil of Pink City Honda (your Jaipur Dealer) to enquire for some accessories. On that call I was told that Mr. Bhutani your Regional Service head would be coming to Jaipur on 29th and 30th of August, and I should get the car (CIVIC RJ 01 CA 2095) there so that he himself can verify the problems. I must again remind you that I live in Ajmer which is 135 KM away from Jaipur. It is not practical for me to get the defective car every time as per your convenience. This I have been detailing in my earlier leters also.

I have requested for Mr. Bhutani to please come and inspect the car at Ajmer itself when he came to Jaipur the last time. If you will go through my earlier letters you shall see that I had requested that the Civic be checked up by a HONDA company person (and not just another faraway dealer mechanic) at Delhi when I was there from 4th to 6th August. My car has already been to the workshop in Jaipur for different works including services 6-7 times already, since I took delivery. No work has been done regarding the rear suspension noise, which I had pointed out on the 1st service at 1000 km itself, in Oct.2006.

Even now You are again requiring the car to be got to Jaipur at your convenience to repair or check a defective car (EVEN AFTER 11 MONTHS??). Is this justified?? Do I have to keep driving a defective car or run from pillar to post to get the problem rectified?? Is it not the Company’s duty to get the defects removed at the earliest (11 months now)?

Earlier also when Mr. Bhutani was there at Jaipur, Mr. Adil had scheduled for their Service team (Which was on it's way back from Jodhpur / Udaipur) to change my rear shock absorbers and right wiper blade, at Ajmer itself. These he was supposed to send with some person who was enroute to Jodhpur. This was not done on mr Bhutani's instructions since he said he would like to see the car himself. The service team on reaching Ajmer had called me up enquiring about the parts. But the delership had not informed me that they had cancelled the delivery of the parts (rear shock absorbers and wiper blade, which they did not have in stock on the 7th of Aug. when the car was there at the workshop for service). I had to enquire personally to get this information.

I must tell you that I am already scheduled to go to Jaipur on the 31st of August and 2nd & 3rd of August, these dates cannot be changed. I can take this car to the workshop on any of these visits. It may not be possible for me to get the car to Jaipur on 29th or 30th and then again on 31st and again on 2nd & 3rd. This is VERY IMPRACTICAL. I can not upset my scedules this way for just a defective car.

I must point out to you that you have changed the engine mountings at 5000 km (due to rear suspension noise??), Changed 2 rear tyres (where I have been pointing out a suspension defect from day 1) due to uneven wear (IRIVER wear) at 17000 km, but not done anything to the basic underlying problem of the defective rear suspension.

I think, if possible, Mr.Bhutani Can delay his trip by 1 day so that he can check my car and get the required work done on the 31st Aug, when I have to go to Jaipur anyway.

I request you to please find an urgent solution to my problem so that the defctive car can be checked and repaired at the earliest, and no further inconvenience is caused to me.

Thanking you

Yours sincerely,

Sandeep Garg

Sandeep - Seems like you've been given a lot of trouble with the Civic. Let me see if I can get you some direct contact to bombard with emails/phone calls regarding this problem. Have you been in touch with anybody from the Delhi/Noida office yet?

Folks, anyone who has availed car loan, please let me know which bank is better. Also is there a difference between personal loans versus car loan say for a small amount/medium amt./large amt. Appreciate any response.

Just go for any Nationalised Bank and not a private bank - if at a later stage you decide to pay off the loan before the proposed time, you will be paying lesser interest as compared to a private bank.

Car loan rates: 9~11%
Personal loan rates: 14~20%

SBI is good bet. Nothing like it if you know the Bank Manager.

No it does not lock automatically. This is to prevent someone from locking their keys in. However if you have unlocked the car and have not opened any doors, then it locks automatically after a minute. I think this is pretty much standard with most centralized locking system.

VKJ, there is a separate thread, in fact several threads on car loans. Please do a search for them. You will get all the appropriate information there. People will also respond better there.

There is a lot of difference between personal and car loans. Please search for them.

Yes!!

Their Regional Service head Mr. Bhutani. In fact today after my fax to their factory and feedback to their 1to1, there was again a call (as usual) from the dealer at Jaipur. They again asked me to send the car on 29th or 30th Aug. to Jaipur for Mr Bhutani's inspection. They don't it seems have the authority to do anything without his go ahead, even if the customer suffers. I think Honda doesn't care. I don't think they even read the letters we send or fax to them. They just have standard responses.

HOW DO I GET MY CAR REPAIRED or do I go the legal way with the Honda persons and also involve the Media? Some of my best friends own large circulation dailies like the Dainik Navjyoti in Rajasthan.

HOW DO I GET THE HONDA PERSONS TO MOVE THEIR ..... PRONTO??

HELP
