which honda dealership service department would you recommend?

Which honda dealer service department do you guy like or has done good work for you guys. And which one should people avoid?

looking to do basic service, like oil change and basic maintenance.

i know i can DIY but i don't have time and also i know midas or other shops may be a little cheaper but i want to stick with honda since its still under warranty so if something happens they are responsible.

So any advice would be appreciated and also if anyone have hookups or RS discounts that would be great.

Westwood Honda's good by my book. The rates are higher than independent shops, but for oil changes and etc. it's not too high for me to consider. They're doing the maintenance on my and my family's Civics.

I DIY most of my own stuff, but I've only been to Vancouver Honda twice and both times they've let me down, though nothing major.

Last time I went for a TSB on a noisey rear differential, it took them 20mins to find my car, at first they were asking if I was sure I was at the right dealership. After finally locating the car, I could tell they must've left the door or window open because there was lots of cherry blossoms inside the driver side.

stuck with richmond honda since 1998. The service is alright, prices are as expected - the dealership premium, but i also noticed the parts cost might be a little higher there than for example, pacific honda. There was a 10% difference on a part that cost $250 at pacific honda. I try do all the basic maintenance myself with my available tools and a chilton manual but for the repair and major stuff i take it to richmond... for convenience and habit, really.

I've been using Vancouver Honda for the past 2+ years and I have had a good experience with them thus far. I take my car there for oil changes, maintenance, etc.

I also heard good things are Westwood Honda. I have also taken my car a couple of times to Northshore Acura and also had a good experience there.

I've had my cars serviced at Westwood Honda for 10+ years. Rates are higher than most shops but you can trust their work.
