Who Will Probably Be Your Main Service Provider?

Now that many of us have entered a service mode with our new Pilots, I was wondering who primarily you'll entrust your vehicle to for service work.

Yeah, the board is acting kind of squirrelly for me. I guess I finally managed to get something posted.

I use an independent garage right near work. I just drop the car off and he drives me to work and picks me up. Seems to be honest and reasonably competent.

Since I'm not a Pilot owner yet, I'm not voting in your poll.

Ziploc: Did Criswell send you a coupon (or coupons) for an oil change and/or other service??? :confused:
They sent me a $19.95 coupon for oil/filter change and "19-point inspection"...suggesting I might want to bring in the Pilot for first service under the "Severe" maintenance schedule (3,750 mi.). I went ahead and took it in....I also wanted them to check out my radio reception problem, which they fixed under warranty.

That's what I thought!! Darn, they (Criswell) didn't send me no stinkin' coupon...!!! :3: Oh well... :8:
Shoot, I thought they might make AT LEAST do the first oil change for free (like some others here have gotten).... Would have been a nice way to build customer goodwill.

I'd never go back to the dealer I bought my Pilot from for anything. That place and especially the service manager digusts me.

I will use the dealer for major service items, But I have a place that I trust for oil changes, and as I use Mobil 1, Honda will not provide that. I also get tires rotated by the Discount Tire I have been dealing with for years. The rest my dealer will get, they even have a free loaner service for any car that is going to be in for more than 3 hours!

RipRocK: Do I need to send "Tony and the boys" again??? :D Seriously, did you rate them on the "Dealer Ratings" section on the main honda-pilot.org web page? There's a comments section, too, just in case you need to, uh, vent... :4:

Nah, this is a personal one for me. I'd rather do the job myself ;)

I want to do that, but the feature doesn't work yet for Canadian dealers. I mentioned it to an Admin when I visited the IRC chat sesseion, but it hasn't been set up yet.

I use an independent shop for anything other than warranty work.

Why? Because I trust the owner, all the mechanics are Master Certified, (which is seldom the case at any dealer), and usually the service is less expensive than at the dealer.

Kemosable, "Image" my shock at Florida_Gay's self-maintenance routine... not imagine.

I'm disappointed you missed that. I expected an amusing likeness of Florida_Gay fumbling with his "tools".

Don't worry, Bigrob, kemosabe will make up for this missed opportunity in his own special way! :18:
