    Izzy made purchasing a new car very easy and convenient. We met with him once, told him what we wanted and he delivered within a few weeks. We had an issue with our auto start but scheduling a fix and getting it repaired was just as easy.

    Wish I could give them 5 stars. The initial phase of the new lease (on February 27, 2017) was so smooth. Path the salesman helped me a lot to get the best deal, and I appreciate his service. The problem happened whenever I found that (after got a registered mail from Honda Finance, they sent the mail on March first week and I picked up that mail after week around March 10th), the previous lease payment was not clear for over a month and I was not receiving any statement for the new lease. I contacted the previous lease financing company (Honda finance) and they said they did not get any documents for the previous lease and the renewal lease. So mark this scenario. For the record on the new lease paper, SI Honda agreed to clear my remaining $840 lease payment, and they did not send this payment. After that, I talked to Path, and he said they have some financial problem and will do the paperwork within few days. I told him please do it quickly because the lease application is in my name, so anything delay will hamper my credit score. He said not worry. Well, I kept patience because they said they are processing, even though it’s been over a month. I asked them about the new lease statement and they said I will get it very soon. So there was a lot of back and forth conversation with SI Honda and Honda Finance for over a week after that incident and I found that SI Honda is not managing this matter timely and professionally. Note: Honda Finance said in the mail that if I buy or lease a new Honda or Acura they will waive my turn in fee and tax ($350 + $31.06). So to resolve this issue I tried to make a conference call including SI Honda and Honda Finance with the help of Honda Finance, and SI Honda hung up the call. Mark this behavior. SO every time I asked SI Honda to send the lease documents, they said they won’t because the new lease is with different financing bank (Cal Automobile), so I tried to make them clear Honda Finance will waive my turn in and tax because I leased a new Honda CRV-EX 2017. But they did not want to listen to me, they just trying to convince me they gave a good deal and blah blah. So I found that it’s waste of time to call over the phone, so I went to SI Honda with all documents on March 30, 2017. And again I was talking to Path, now totally in a different scenario, he did not want to understand about the turn in fee, I did not understand why and experienced salesman understands this simple condition. So he gave up to me and took me their Finance Manager (Faysel Tahseen), *I met this before and either he has some politeness problem or he has a race problem. The last meeting with him 3 years ago wasn’t pleasant, he was rude to me, his behavior is like take it or leave and gave me false information that my credit wasn’t good even I have very good credit score 3 years ago and it’s better and better. Anyway this time his first sentence was “What’s your questions?” I was like what. Then I tried to explain him the delay issue and Honda Finance issue, he like everything is okay, you’ll get statement it will take time (mark this SI Honda took over a month to process this and said it’s okay and did not sayle single sorry). He said they giving cheap lease but hell no I gave down payment that’s why the payment became less. It was very unfordable if a person talking in a rude and mean attitude and he does not deserve his position if it his real character. So he said this done what’s your next question, again I feel like what!!!, I told him about the Turn in fee and same thing he stopped me and did not want to understand. He said “Honda Finance will laugh at me if I send the previous lease document” !!! Mark this statement totally mean, rude and unprofessional behavior. So I left that place with a lot of anger inside me, an organized Honda dealer should not handle a customer in this way. For the record, I tried to fax Honda Finance all of my documents but they said the copies were not clear, and I saw that too. So

    I visited Honda of Staten Island on 02/12/2017 around 11:30 AM. I sat down with a sales person about leasing a 2017 Honda CR-V EX, we negotiated a price and moved forward to the other steps. Shortly, the sales person came back and told me the Sales Manager made a mistake and the number we had agreed on was for a 2016 model. This was the 1st RED FLAG I experienced. However, since I needed the car ASAP, I politely renegotiated for a "2017" model. Once again, we agreed on a price. Then came the Finance part. I was told I am not being approved for credit even though I have a 700 credit score. This was the 2nd RED FLAG. Even though this was fishy news for me, I offered to apply for credit with a co-signer. They came back saying they are not getting a response from the bank since its Sunday thus they will get everything done on Monday after which I can go and pick-up the car. They also asked me to leave a $400 deposit, which I did. I called them on Monday to follow-up and received unclear response. They said I can't come to pick-up the car on Monday, but I will defi get my car on Tuesday. I called Tuesday and the same was told to me. Thus, on Wednesday I physically visited the dealership after work in order to find out exactly what is happening. They said they "TRIED" to get me approved with the co-signer but I wasn't approved either. And in order to get me approved they will have to use Honda's financing, "but since Honda has higher rates" it is going to increase my monthly payment by $100. This was the 3rd RED FLAG and I couldn't take it anymore. Knowing Honda's financing is more lenient than other lenders. Pretty much, they baited and switched on me several times. They gave me a price and after that tried their best to hike up the monthly payment as much as they could. Instead of dealing with their BS. I went across to Nissan and got myself a 2017 Nissan Rogue S (AWD) for $179 ($0 down) a month and drove away with my car. Honda of Staten Island is full with highly unprofessional and unethical staff. I sat down with 2 Finance Managers, Faisal and Adrian Smith. I know dealerships try their best to make as much profit as they can but Honda of Staten Island is incorporating highly unprofessional and unethical schemes in order to get customers to pay more for their cars. They are taking a bit too much liberty for being the only Honda dealership in Staten Island. I would rather go to Brooklyn or NJ, but will never or advise anyone else to go to Honda of Staten Island. Its been 3 days and the deposit hasn't been returned to my account either.

    This was my second time leasing from Staten Island Honda and as I expected they communicated well throughout the entire process. Phil Tesoriero in particular was helpful in explaining the breakdown of costs and he scheduled delivery of services effectively. He made sure things went at my pace and that nothing was left unexplained. It's nice to have that kind of attention at car dealerships.

    This is my second Honda that Mr. Abramovich has helped me to lease. I was very impressed with his honest, ethical and very friendly approach the first time, and made sure when my lease was up, he was the one to help me with a new lease again. I highly recommend his services to anyone who is looking for a reliable and straightforward car salesperson when car shopping.
