[XXX] JUNE 8, 2010 REF. VIN # [XXX] HONDA CASE # [XXX] TO ALL CONCERNED, THIS LETTER IS TO EXPLAIN THE EVENTS THAT HAS LED TO ME NOW HAVING TO TAKE THIS ISSUE TO A MORE ELEVATED LEVEL. AT THE END OF OCTOBER OF 2008 MY WIFE, MOTHER AND 3 CHILDREN WENT TO COGGIN HONDA LOCATED AT 11051 S. ORANGE BLOSSOM TRAIL, ORLANDO, FLA. 32837 (TEL. 407-851-9118) TO LOOK AT THE ODYSSEY MINIVANS. WE WERE APPROACHED BY SALES & LEASING CONSULTANT CHESTER HEATH: CELL [XXX] (NO LONGER THERE) AND HE SHOWED US AROUND AND MET WITH FINANCE MANAGER FRANCIS ROSARIO : CELL [XXX] WHO FINANCED US. ABOUT A WEEK AFTER DRIVING IT AROUND I STARTED TO NOTICE THAT IT WAS MAKING A NOISE WHEN BRAKING, A HARD GRINDING NOISE (STILL MAKING THIS NOISE TO THIS DAY). I ALSO NOTICED THAT IT WAS MAKING A CLICKING SOUND WHEN MAKING RADIUS TURNS (SINCE FIXED BY CLASSIC HONDA BY FIXING THE FRONT AXLE IN NOVEMBER 2009) . ALSO THERE WAS AND STILL IS A RATTLE BY THE STEERING WHEEL. MY MAIN CONCERN HOWEVER IS THE BRAKING NOISE WHICH AT THE BEGINNING WOULD COME AND GO. IT NOW DOES IT ALMOST EVERY TIME I BRAKE. THAT HAS BEEN PART OF THE PROBLEM, IT COMES AND GOES. SO I TOLD MY WIFE ABOUT THE NOISE THAT THE CAR MADE AND SHE SUGGESTED I CALL COGGIN HONDA TO AT LEAST LET IT BE KNOWN ON RECORD ABOUT THE PROBLEM. I THEN CALLED COGGIN THAT WEEK AND THE PERSON I SPOKE TO SAID TO JUST SIMPLY COME BY AND WE WILL HAVE A LOOK AT IT. SINCE IT DID NOT ALWAYS HAPPEN I THOUGHT TO MYSELF THAT IT WAS A NEW CAR JUST GETTING SETTLED. SO I PROBABLY WAITED A FEW MONTHS (ABOUT JAN. 2009) AND THEN IT STARTED TO MAKE THE NOISE ON A CONSTANT BASIS AND REALIZED THAT THIS PROBLEM WAS NOT GOING AWAY. I THEN BROUGHT THE CAR TO COGGIN AND SPOKE WITH SERVICE ADVISOR FRITZ RAY (NO LONGER THERE) AND OF COURSE IT DID NOT MAKE THE NOISE AT THAT TIME AND BECAUSE THERE WAS NO NOISE THEY COULD. INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
