Even phoned my dealer (Honda Antwerp) for the appointment of the annual maintenance, they say to me casually that no agreements can be made as the Honda representative for Antwerp no longer exists, and for further maintenance or repairs should be contacted with either the Honda dealer in Lier or St.Niklaas, Mawin all the province of Antwerp, there are only two dealers (Lier & Turnhout, St.Niklaas is O.Vlaanderen) that means +/- 60km verplaatsingskosten.Als we know that its a 20 min. Drive from my hometown there three Kia dealerships, then my next choice for a new vehicle will be made soon .Samengevat Honda makes good and reliable cars but takes its customers seriously and does not prove that their sales whatsoever. Regrettable !
