There is no way this car is even worth the sticker price that I paid. Leaking valve covers and never ending second gear grind. Fully regret buying this piece of junk. Now I have do the dealership dance again and try to fix my trans which Honda won’t admit theirs a problem
Another person who blew their 2nd gear out calling the car junk. If it was a bad transmission it's as easy as going to the dealer and getting it swapped out. Unless they found something the user did. Over Rev code, etc.. My oil filter was so tight from the factory I had to destroy it to get it off. Doesn't make the car junk.

Maybe if you join a gym you wouldn’t be such a wimp on removing your oil filter. Stay on your couch and leave the mechanics to real men.I had manuals all my life so whenever you need real driving lessons give me a call. LMAO

Are you a troll? Do you know how to read? Are you aware what is going on with the second gear grind. I’m currently trying to find a dealership that I can trust to do the work. Had Planet Honda do my leaking valve cover and they did a horrible job. The individuals on here have offered fixes but it hasn’t fully helped . I was hoping for a solution and many on here have had success. I have had the second gear grind since the first week I purchased the car. The dealership is the last resort for me. I hate having the dealership to anything to my car. However, you must be the type that goes to the dealer when the windshield washer fluid is low and say: “Hey how do you fill this up” LOL

I’m glad you can do the basics. We should all know that on this forum or at least teach others. Wow you’re a parts changer. Get back to me when you can rebuild motors and Port and polish heads. A lost craft. I don’t think you ever saw the inside of an engine. Please respect the ones that build a car from the ground up. Rule 1: don’t act like you know everything. It makes you look like an ass. Stop being an ass when you respond to posts. You have to grow up a bit.

Not sure where you got your information from, but Washington Honda AND Valley are NOT selling their CTR at invoice. Below are Washington's and Valley's response. Not to sound mean or anything, but I would suggest making sure your information is accurate before posting.

Haha wow... Jared. You're just another sideways salesman. Trying to take advantage of uneducated consumers. Is "Bill" your real name or just your fake email account?

Information is 100% accurate. Have quotes, for reference, for legitimate people trying to buy a vehicle. Feel free to PM me.

Valley was actually below invoice for me.

Wasting your time and others putting out false inquiry emails because you're feel threatened by a better deal in your area.

Pathetic you are Jared/"Bill"

Word for the wise avoid South Hills Honda in Pittsburgh, PA... Manipulative tactics through and through just displayed
South Hills Honda in Pittsburgh, PA "Jared" or "Bill" trying to distract people in the good-dealers thread. Jared Ambrose is actually one of the sales managers. Bad leadership example on his part.

Lol. Why are you getting so worked up? I would love to see your under invoice quotes. That's hilarious. I didn't believe the info you posted so I made an email and got the truth. It would have been pretty dumb to use my South Hills Honda email and ask another Honda dealer for a quote. I've been a member on this forum for almost 3 years. Between Evan and I, we have sold 7 or 8 CTRs to happy members. I began selling CTRs at MSRP with no added on B.S. when the vast majority of dealers were way over sticker. The last 2 we sold were $750 and $1,500 under MSRP. I joined this forum to help out anyone who has interest in a CTR and provide them with a great deal. No one should have to pay over sticker for one, and I will continue being one of the most aggressive dealers when it comes to CTR prices. What have you provided to this forum? In your previous post, you said you made the decision to pass on a CTR.
All it boils down to is being deceiving and you're here to make money off the forum members.

You know as good as anyone, (1) email doesn't get you the price you're going pay. Numerous communications over a period of time is required. So your (1) email doesn't mean anything.

I'm here on the forum to educate myself and others members. Just because you only LET your customers pay MSRP or under MSRP, doesn't mean we can't get invoice from another dealer. Anyone can do what I did too. Shop and do your due diligence. Email multiple dealerships, don't give phone numbers initially, so everything with numbers is clear and documented with price breakdown. Usually sales managers are who I finally end up dealing with and having phone conversations.

Your agenda is to make as much money as you can for yourself and the dealership. That's only reason you have don't like my posts regarding 2 local dealerships near you beating your prices. That's the reason you're on this forum, to line your pockets. You're not an enthusiast.

Correct we aren't getting a CTR due to the styling... Wing, red seats, red accents, faux vents. Was going to remove wing, red exterior stripes, do seat covers, wheels/tires. Too much fuss for a daily driver. We'll be going another route for a fun daily

Thanks for all the laughs. I feel like your just trolling at this point. If you ever change your mind on getting a CTR, let me know, I'd be happy to help you out. :)
Valley quote at invoice... giving me another $400 off via phone conversations

You said all three were offering invoice in a previous post. Now you say Washington is not at invoice. All I see are 2 pieces of quote and an email from someone who I couldn't take seriously from the way they responded. Not going to keep going back and forth with you.

Avoid Chantilly Honda in Northern Virginia. They still want $5000 over MSRP and how they always sell them that way. These cars have been on the floor over a month. Load of BS from the manager.

That Type R was purchased the same day I got my sport touring from that dealer. Wasn't even test driven, a guy came in and said he wanted to buy it then sometime later he was driving off with it.
