You do know the dealer will end up passing the cost onto the consumers .. it could be labelled as dealership facility improvement fee $299. Winking Face Changing out all signages could easily run into $50,000.

Wow I just checked Audi Mississauga and even that dealership uses the old logo on their main dealership signs.

Seriously, whats the deal with the previous Audi logo from 30 years ago being used on Audi dealerships? Seems super cheap for any brand, let alone a luxury brand to not update their main symbol after so many years.

Hi - I’ve run into a strange situation trying to buy a 2014 A4 from an Audi dealer. Short story - I found a car I liked and made an offer with deposit. After signing the offer, I was told that the car was subject to an Audi recall (80C5) for issues with the auxiliary heater and I’d have to wait for it to be fixed before the car could be delivered to me.

It’s been a couple of weeks and the dealer can’t tell me when Audi will provide the dealership with the information they need to fix it.

Does anyone have any idea when dealers will be able to start fixing these recalls? Also wondering what my rights are if I want to get my deposit back.

Thanks!
They are supposed to disclose any information about repairs prior to your purchasing. If this is an official dealership, is the vehicle CPO? And then you can ask them how the vehicle could have been certified CPO if the recall issue was not repaired.

Further the fact its taking 'weeks' to repair and deliver the sale of a vehicle sounds incredibly shady. I'd read up on your rights and then demand to speak with management for immediate resolution, or request your deposit back.

Thanks - it is CPO, which is why they can’t deliver it. I agree they should have mentioned it prior to offer being signed.

Thanks for the links. I spoke to them today and they have offered to cancel the offer if I want.

2013 to 2015 A4s are under recall to get the auxiliary heater fixed (fire hazard) so Audi dealers are sitting with a bunch of CPO cars they can’t move until they get the fix from Audi. The recall was issued in October and nobody seems to know when Audi will send out parts / instructions. It also looks like a big job - dissembling dash etc to get to and replace the aux heater.

So things look better now but I still don’t have a car. Looks like I’m going to have to find a different MY if I want one anytime soon.

Hi, I'm looking into buying either the technic or progressive 2018 q5, and was wondering which dealer in the gta typically provides the best pricing?

Difficult to say. You need to shop around. Determine what % discount you want off and see which dealer is willing to play ball with you

Discounts are very close throughout the GTA, I suggest you find the dealer closer to you and work with them.

FYI, keep in mind that we're losing 1% from our profit margin as of January 1st, 2018. Audi had the brilliant idea of doing this instead of increasing the MSRP. The current margins are only applicable to cars that are physically in the country. Any vehicle arriving past Jan 1st will have the new pricing, meaning that price isn't protected.

Good luck!

Took delivery of an 18 Q5 Progressiv two weeks ago from Audi Midtown Toronto and they gave me a good deal. But you need to be a capable negotiator because they play the sales game hard there.
the internet is serious business.

Hey Mike,

I recently financed a 2014 Audi A5 which was also a part of this recall. I also had trouble getting the financing sorted because it was a CPO and the recall needed to be completed before they could finalize it.

My dealer was able to complete the recall last week. If you still need to get yours recall resolved try calling Audi Queensway as they were the ones that took care of mine.

Good luck.

Audi Brampton, my dealer now. You were told correctly, it is in high demand.

I got my 2013 S5 from Uptown Audi, and got an excellent price. I traded that in and got a 2015 A4 Technik Competition also from Uptown.

However, since then, I did a deal for a friend at Owasco Audi in Whitby last year, and got him $500 over invoice, plus an additional VIP discount.

Since then, I've bought a new 2018 A4 Sline Black in Quantum Grey from Owasco Audi - and got a $4875 discount. (Sadly, I didn't qualify for the additional VIP discount.) It's arriving in March.

I referred RFD'er sonnykw2305 to Owasco around 2 weeks ago- and he got a huge discount too. He was dealing with another Audi dealership, but got a much better deal at Owasco. Sonny got $1500 more on his trade in and a similar $4875 discount. He's ordering an A4 Sline Black in Scuba Blue. Whitby may be 20 minutes east of Scarborough, but if you can save an additional $1000+, then it's definitely worth the drive.

PM if you want a contact name at Owasco.
