I don't write on here that often, but I had such a disappointing encounter with Holeshot Motors in Langley that I had to post.
Basically a month ago I was looking at buying a Honda CBR 600 and brought the bike into Holeshot for a pre-purchase inspection.
The bike had been sitting in this guys garage for 2 years, so when talked to the mechanic I clearly stated that I was concerned there might be issues with the bike for having it sit so long without being winterized. That being said I got the pre-purchase inspection and a compression test which came out to $200. The mechanic said the bike checked out fine and that the bike was mechanically sound and gave me the inspection report.
Fast forward a month later and my bike breaks down - rust in the tank so the fuel system is shot. $1200 bill to fix it up. So I call Holeshot to talk to the mechanic and he says basically they only do what is on the work form and then get passed on to the sales manager who basically says that they are in the right and that I should take my business elsewhere if I think that they didn't to their job properly. He told me I was given a list of everything that they looked at.
Obviously I am pretty infuriated. I had specifically told the mechanic that I was worried about the bike sitting there for 2 seasons and that was why I wanted the compression test done.
Am I out of line to think that after voicing my concerns about a bike that had been idle for a time period, and specifying concerns to the mechanic that checking out the gas-tank for rust would be covered in a $200 inspection?
Regardless, I won't be heading back to Holeshot during this lifetime.
