All right! So I just stepped up my game and bought a brand new Acura TSX. I've always had honda's toyota's and nissan's, till now! Buying the car wasn't that bad of a deal we got'em down on the price and worked out a decent payment.. But here's the deal. We upgraded the rims to the silver star wheel package no problem right? They order them so Ill have to come back to have them put on, no problem. I drop the car the following weekend they give me a loner 05 TL (SWEET), no problem. Come back later that day PROBLEM! Rims are on and lookin sweet but wait where's the emblem?? All four are missing! Not that it's a huge deal, but what the fuck?? SUZY behind the parts counter tells me they don't come that way! "Say WHAT"!? To which I reply! Then I say, "So they don't put thiner logo on the rims huh, nice marketing!" So she says she'll check it out and give me a call! "FINE"! So I head out to the car and pop the trunk, "WHERE ARE THE FACTORY RIMS"? "OH WE'LL HAVE TO GET BACK TO YOU"! All right I say I'm comin back in one week for all my stuff. "O.K. Mr. T we'll have it all ready to go"! Well during the week a squeak in the dash developed so I called and was told when I brought the car in on Saturday (today) I would be givin another loner and the problem would be taken are of. I show up and am told that they are out of loner's and that I would have to come back during the week. "SO WHY'D I BOTHER MAKING THIS APPOINTMENT THEN"! he didn't know either. "FINE THEN GIVE ME MY RIMS". Puts'em in the trunk "HOLD UP WHERE'S THE CENTER CAP"? he don't know the answer! Parts lady says they will mail'em to me! "FUCK THIS, DO YOU GUYS HAVE A CLUE ON HOW TO RUN THIS OPERATION"? So I split It's Saturday and I got shit to do! So I'm home and thinkin about it and it's pissin me off even more! I get on the horn and had it out with a higher up at the dealer. This Fucker told me that they don't give back the rims! I said "WELL YOU GAVE'EM TO ME AND I PAID FOR THEM SO THINER ARE MINE"! He says yes but technically no! "BULLSHIT I DROPPED $900 FOR THE NEW RIMS AND PART OF THE COST OF THE CAR INCLUDES THE WHEELS IT COMES WITH. AM I WRONG"? "NO SIR YOU ARE CORRECT"! Damn right bitch! Long story but I had to get it off my chest! Any how I'm taking it to another dealer from now on I guess it IS hard to find good help!
And there is still more to this story but I'm done! Time to go get some lunch! L8
FUCK CERRITOS ACURA!

It's a bitch. You buy a $29,000 car, you think they would give at least marginally good customer service.
I had to buy a second car to go to work in. I drive 60 miles a day and the 8 cyl was slurping up like $18 a day in gas. So I picked up an economical Hyundai Elantra (now have 109,000 miles on it and no problems) The service for a $13,000 knock around car was and is still outstanding. So I got an economy car, sunroof, the best stereo, power everything, the quality to my surprise was excellent, to top it off they treated me like I just bought a Vett.

It just goes to show, customer service is everything. I think the dealer that sold you your car needs some customer support training.

What I'm planning for my next car will be a balance of economy and luxury. I was thinking a pre owned Mercedes-Benz SLK SLK320 Kompressor. Or a BMW 525 I.
Then again there’s a part of me that really wants a fully restored, electric blue ’73 Dodge Challenger, with a 340. (like the one I wrecked when I was 18) But I can’t get both and I need to have something appropriate to pull up to a customer’s site in, and take them out to lunch and such.

If I were to have the money to buy a new car, I'd definetely go with the Audi TT. I just like it.
If I were to choose to buy an old car, I'd find a 93' Acura Integra and fix it up.

4 Grand? More like 9 Grand dude...

Honestly, I'd have the Audi TT, but if you were on a budget on how much you can spend, I'd guess I'd go with the Acura TSX, since it saves you a few thousand bucks.

And if you pimped out your Acura TSX, and Lets say I bought an Audi TT and pimped it out as well, your Acura couldn't/wouldn't stand a chance.

That's why I buy $500, used, hunk-a-junk cars. Vanity isn't that important to me when it comes to cars. I just want something to get me from point A to point B so I won't be like "Yeah, it's pretty, but I'm going to be in debt for the next six years! Plus added on all the money I'm going to spend on maintenence...and the outrageously expensive insurance to protect the pretty car...wow I'm fucked." Yeah, cheap-ass hunk-a-junk cars all the way.

Number 1. Who the fuck buys a $44,000 VW?
Number 2. 4 grand was correct on a low ball TT, DUDE! I'd rather spend $44 g's on a TL with 270 ponies pimp that out, and blow your fancy BEETLE to shit!
Number 3. again need I say 44k on a V-DUB, and a chick car to boot!

And they wonder wht the PHOTON (pheaton) doesn't sell!

You sound like my brother! The car buff with a bus pass.

Suck to be you Mr.T. I hate car dealers. They are all liars and if someone tells you they are not, they are liars as well!

Take the car back. Say here is you car, I want my $ back. Then, they will get off their asses and get some shit done.

A few things, number one, car dealers are assholes, period. Number two, if you're looking for performance, Audi TT>Acura TSX, it's made for performance, and if you're looking to modify a car, the TT will respond much better to mods, sure it costs a little bit more, but again, if you're looking to modify, you'll spend more on the TSX than the Audi to get to the same point (BTW, you said that you've owned Hondas and Toyotas before but not an Acura, well Acura is a division of Honda)

That explains why the trunk latch is the same!

All this thread was about was the poor quality of service, not modification! The reason I bought this car was based on the build quality, and reliability of Honda's. I think this car performs fine the way it is. I'm not big on mods that's why I spent a little more on an Acura rather than a Honda. Far as Euro cars go I just don't trust'em. Sure they are whatever they are (over hyped euro crap). I have plenty of friends and family with Volvo's, A4's, 3 series, and C class and all have had trouble in some sort of way. EVERY japanese car I have ever owned has proven to be a great car, and I have had a few. The last Japanese car we had was a Mazda Protege 5 and that little fucker was fun! Under powered yes but handled like all hell. So for me the obvious step up was Acura. I still have yet to find something to dissapoint me besides the service from the dealer!
