Picked Up Friday took back Monday

Not a good start to being a Honda civic owner, the delivery of the car was 6 weeks late, picked it up last friday and noticed a ding in the door and the mats were missing.

Monday I took it to work as I was away the weekend so I had not used it and by the night it had thrown a large amount of oil all over the floor, so it was back to the dealers and another loan car.

I am still waiting for it to be fixed!!!

OK then its back ...... after I made them jet wash it again to remove the oil from the wheel arches ... You can not believe that main dealers just dont take enough care!!!

Well lets hope thats the end of it and maybe I can start to enjoy the car
