Does American Honda Finance Suck???

I see they have a horrible Google Reviews score of 1.3:,1,,, I had planned to take advantage of the Honda Financing's Low rate of 0.9% per year for 60 months. I did that when I bought an Acura in 2008 and it was fine and trouble free. However, after reading their reviews I'm inclined to pay cash.

Anyone here have any good or bad experiences with them?

0.9% is cheap money.

Devil is always in the details. I know in the past they had 0.9% for the first $10k or something like that.

If you can afford cash then pay cash but if you need your cash liquid then finance at the best rate with the best terms.

Credit Unions are generally the better option especially the specific trades one.

The only people who take the time to "rate" a finance company on Google are people who have an axe to grind.

I'm on my third loan with AHFC/AFS and they've been fantastic to work with, each time.

Had cheap financing on Honda Element and 11 MDX. Now have lease on 17 MDX. Never had any issues at all. In both of the financed vehicles, I promptly received the title after paying off the loan.
