I purchased two new Honda Prelude 2.2 Motegi's in 98 and 99.
The 99 would have one of the last out of Japan, before they stopped making them.
Why did I buy two 25k cars within 6 months of each other ??
Well,the paintwork was so soft on the first, that I had a 6 month battle with Honda UK for a replacement.
I didn't get one from them, but received a " Goodwill Gesture Only" cheques for £700.
My Dealership was great and purchased another for me at no profit to them ( Only because it was a family owned Dealership and I was friends with the boss.)
They took back my first car and only made £400 on it.
So - It only cost me £1,500 + or - to replace. (ONLY)
Their paintwork hasn't improved in the 11 years.
Do they think that we are daft, - It's not the thickness of the paint, but the hardness.
That said, I still went on and purchased other Honda's, the last being my Civic which my wife now owns.
I must visit my doctor and get some tablets, as I must me some kind of nut.
