Re: quattro-digest V4 #3086


I walked into Valley Motors about 6pm on a Thursday while shopping for a
1999 A4tq.  (I had called ahead and found that their dealership had the car
with the exact options I wanted.  They invited me by for a test drive)
When I showed up, they were too lazy to move two cars out of their show
room to let me take the test drive they invited me there for.

I was not happy and let them know I had called ahead and they knew about
it.  The salesman actually looked me in the eye and asked me if I was
serious about buying.  I replied that before I could tell him that, I
shouldnt be too much to ask to drive the car, and then left.

I bought my 99A4tq the next day from Len Stoler Audi in Owings Mills.
Guess I was serious, huh?

I guess what bothered me was that I expect that ind of salesmanship from
other dealers, but hadn't experienced it from any of the Audi dealerships I
had been to prior to that (about 6).

I was at Valley Motors many years ago waiting to pick up some floor
mats I had ordered.  A service manager who was in the parts department
was paged for a phone call.  He picked up the phone on the counter to
talk to a customer who had called about the status of his car.  "Yes,
I'll check on the status of your car right now" he said.  He then
proceeded to cover the phone with his hand, make an obscene hand
gesture and continued his original unrelated conversation for three
minutes before saying into the phone:  "Gee, the car won't be ready
today, call back tomorrow".

I have never been back........
