Complaint / review / scam report
Whitby Oshawa Honda

We took our 1999 Honda CRV to Whitby Oshawa Honda for brakes - it ended up costing us $1100 as they said the drums needed to be turned, the front left ball joint needed replacing. When we returned for a small antifreeze leak, they installed a new rad which cost us $800. The next time we went in for servicing was when our exhaust had a leak (a flange gasket) and they said it would cost $450 for the pipe which has to be replaced, which was fine with us. However, the next morning they called my husband and said we needed an Oil pan (same as the other complaint on here), timing belt, and that our differential mount was broken, and that we needed the right front ball joint, so altogether the repairs would cost us $2000. My husband said I will be right down to pick up my car.

He took it to another recommended mechanic who found nothing wrong with the differential mount but who said the ball joints BOTH needed replacing (even though Honda supposedly fixed the left one a couple of months earler) He also said the oil pan was fine, just rusty. We decided to check further.

We took our vehicle to another mechanic, who replaced the right ball joint only and said everything else was fine. So it cost us around $100. Quite an improvement from $2, 000. I figure Honda has fancy showrooms to pay for. I will never take my vehicle there again.
