Has anyone gone to any dealership in the bay area to get their car? If so, which one did you go to and how was the customer service? Did they give you a good price on the car?
Im glad you had a good experience with Stevens Creek Honda, my parents bought a Odyssey back in 2000 from them. My experience was completely different though.The dealership that I bought my SI from is Honda of Stevens Creek. I did go through the Costco car buyers program. My salesman made a photocopy of my driver’s license and handed me the keys to an SI on the lot and said go ahead and test drive the car by yourself. We agreed on the quoted price of the car, no haggling, it was under $20K. They didn’t have the car that I wanted on the lot so my salesman did a little digging and found that a car with my specs was arriving with in a week. So I bought it, and two days later, it arrived for delivery.
Their finance manager found a promo from Honda Financing that I could not turn down. Even my own credit union couldn’t get a better interest rate.
I recently went in for my first oil change, and my service advisor was just fantastic. She was very friendly, and wrote up everything that I wanted done on my car. Promised to have my car ready with in an hour on a very busy Saturday morning. They have a spacious clean waiting area.
I did buy a 2007 CR-V EX-L from Capitol Honda two months before my SI, good service as well, but I prefer Honda of Stevens Creek after comparing the two.

The first time i went in they ignored me and i had to hunt somebody down who ended up ditching me. I finally found somebody who could unlock a car, but after he unlocked it and while i was talking to him he also walked off! So i just felt ignored and ended up leaving.
The second time i went it was later in the day (around 5 oclock) I just went to look at a Civic. So just as before, i had to hunt down a salesman. He said he couldnt unlock a car but would find somebody who could, i waited a good 15 minutes but he never came back. I then found a salesman who was wondering around, he asked which car i wanted to look at and went to get a key. While he was off getting a key, one of the lower ranking employees was walking around checking if all the doors were locked. I asked him whats up with the keys and he said that there key box was locked for the day. After hearing that i got fed up and figured they really didnt want my buisness and ended up leaving.
This was my experience with Stevens Creek Honda, i have only gone back for servicing and had a good experience with that. But i would not recommend buying a car from them.
thanks a lot guys. i went to stevens creek today and the guy i talked to was really nice and helpful. not pushy at all. but the thing keeping me from getting an Si is the insurance. its crazy! but we'll see..
