Sounds like it. You were very informed/proactive and still got the run around!the fault of a terrible sales experience
I think you have to do what David did. Speak directly to a specific salesperson and have them tripple-check the inventory vs. your requirements. Emphasize the importance of your pending visit and the need to have the EXACT vehicle you are interested in. Sadly, you have to sound like a borderline jerk these days to avoid getting lackadaisical service.Speaking of true inventory, is there a way for us to tell FOR SURE what a dealership's inventory is? Even the "Inventory Search" on Honda's website doesn't seem to be 100% accurate.
