Not to mention the attitude and competence of their dealers. I
have been to the various dealers in the Boston area, well...makes
you wonder how they get any repeat business. Either the salesmen
are complete dolts or snooty types who act like their doing
you a favor to even speak with you. The ones who digress from
this profile are usually the fast talkers who hit you with the
"dealership fees" of $100-$300 etc. ad nauseum.

Makes me wonder whether the lights are on at AofA. The guy they
had at the Boston Auto Show manning the Audi display this year
