Speaking of Conti - highly offtopic but any insight as to why we can't get the Continental ContiVikingContact 5's here?

I was actually discussing this with my marketing director today, funny you should ask. We are not going to be getting that model here in North America but the same tire under a different name in 2009 from what I understood.

I was told that the Viking line is being fazed out little by little and they are bringing in a new line instead. I don't have much details right now but as soon as I get something I will let you guys know. We get details a little prior to launch here in Canada but not much more than you guys. Everything is governed by the head office in Charlotte, NC and Germany so we pretty much do what they say....

Bahaha... Thanks!

Oh and do we have an outcome as to what Honda said or what they did to fix this situation as I was not in contact with them after my email..... I am kinda curious as to what they offered to make up for the bad service that was received.....

yeah mazda isn't any better.

Took my fiancees Mazda 3 for an oil change...

Adam: "Hi I'd just like an oil change"

Mazda: "Sure, that will be $40" (approx) I dont remember the exact price

Adam: "Ok, sounds good"

Mazda: "And while the cars up there we'll just rotate the tires for ya"

Adam: "Sure, why not, I don't really need one, but hey why not. how nice of you"

Mazda: "No problem at all"
3 hours later

Mazda: "ok so your total comes to $80"

Adam: "huh? I thought it was $40?"

Mazda: "Yeah, and you opted for the tire rotation, thats an additional $40"

Adam: !?!?!?!?!




Never been back since

Ok Guys, if you have any issues with any dealership in the GTA please let me know what dealership and I will see what I can do for ya. I can NOT garantee that anything will come out of it but with most dealership we have contacts that I can email or call and explain the situation and mayyyyybe get you guys something for bad service. I hate to see you guys getting shitty deals or even bad service from one of our clients. They not only represent them self but they also represent Continental as a Tire supplier.... so Just PM me with the Dealership and I will see what I can do... I am all for helping but I need a little bit of details.... So anything that you guys need doesn't matter what car company, could be Ford, GM, BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Mazda, Honda does not matter they all have accounts with us at Conti...
