Well I went and got my oil changed yesterday at my dealer Rahal Honda and figured why not get the inspection as well...FAILED. Said because of my windshield vinyl and my headlights are blue. First of all I have PIAA Super Whites I know for a fact theyre not blue. I bitched and moaned and they said well we have to follow rules or we'll lose our liscense. Cussed them out and left, went down to my godfather's shop in Harrisburg and got him to pass it for me, he said the headlights were white to him and the vinyl was legal so after all the Headaches my car passed. I get home to find a message from Faulkner Honda that my 99's Horn was in because when it was fixed they forgot to fix the horn [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG] Well anyways I go down there and wait an hour before they come out saying that the horn wasnt there [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG][IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG][IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG] Makes me want to blow up dealerships!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That sucks man, I would get a copy of the rules for passing inspection and show it to them and see what they say. The Dealerships usually arent that bad about that stuff.

I feel you on Honda dealerships. My map light stuck every time I turned it on. So I told them and they quickly looked at it and said we'll order the part. Great. So a month passes by and no phone call to say it's in. So today I had my appointment for an oil change. The guy at the dealership says I don't have enough miles on it yet, I should have it changed at 5000, I have 4000. I was specifically told by them numerous times when I bought the car that I should get the oil changed at 4000 miles. So that pissed me off [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG].
So I tell the Honda dealership to fix my wipers if I'm already here, cause they stutter. He said ok, they put a new pair of blades on there. And that I should change my blades about every 6 months here in WA. But my blades aren't even 3 months old yet! But whatever, it's under warranty. They seem to work fine now. He also suggested that I try putting some Soft Scrub(stuff to clean bathrooms) on the windshield to help stop the stuttering. And something else about the arrow dignamics of the big windshield?

I also told him they could fix the rattling of my door locks. He said the doors would have to be taken off and to just have it done next time I come in for my oil check (which should be in about a month).

And to top it all off the part that was supposed to be ordered about a month ago, was never ordered!![IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG]
He said he ordered it today and it shoudl be in by next week. We'll see!![IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG]

So, I rearranged my whole day just to get my wipers changed!! Just one of those days!![IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif[/IMG]
