    Holmes Honda

    It looks like Holmes is joining the ranks of those that have sold out to bigger dealerships. They are going to sell their Honda brand and are now going to be called Smart Honda. I sure hope this goes a lot better than when Jordan motors sold out because they turned into a joke (lithia).

    This is the same company that bought Lujack motors back in 2007. I've never been to the dealership but I have to think it's the biggest in Iowa.

    I liked Lithia Honda of Ames. They treated us a lot better than Holmes did. The car on the other hand...

    I bought an 06 VW GTI from Jordan when it was still in Jordan. I went in for my 2nd oil change and in the hour that I was there I heard 2 employees complaining about the new owners. I've also talked to my old salesman who switched dealerships and he said it was a cluster%%%%.

    My wife just got a Honda there on Monday, but bought it from the Hyundai salesman we trust, that was the last sale from Holmes through the Honda side.

    Well... Maybe this is a way for them to make some quick money. Considering they just spent a ton building their giant Chevy dealership here in Norwalk. I can't see them selling that franchise considering the tough economic shape GM is in.

    Probably makes sense... Being a Honda owner though, I will be upset if Holmes decides to charge me extra for oil and filter now since they won't be owning a Honda dealership. I might have to drive all the way up to Smart Honda instead of simply leaving my vehicle and having them deliver back later.

    Blast from the past. I grew up listening to commercials for these guys. They are huge in South Bend.
