Excellent buying experience! - JARMMAC
After visiting 3 different auto dealers in the area it was refreshing to work with Staci Morse and Benjamin Lin at Audi Bellevue. Our purchase was handled in an efficient and professional manner with every step clearly explained from test drive to purchase. Staci was more concerned about our satisfaction than just selling us a vehicle. Thanks to Staci and Benjamin!

I took my Audi TT to Larson Audi due to a clunking noise when backing and turning simultaneously. Larson determined that it was a bad wheel bearing, which was a surprise given that the car only has 61,000 miles. Additionally, the noise was a clunking noise, not grinding or howling as would be expected with a bad wheel bearing. The wheel bearing was replaced. I was told that the tires were showing wear and would need to be replaced but that it was not urgent.
I discovered the next day that the noise was still present. I called Larson service center and was told to bring the car in. They had the car for several days and finally determined that the problem was the tires, which they said made chattering and clicking noises. I was also told that I had been advised to replace the tires with my first visit, which was definitely not true. (I have since had the tires checked at Discount TIres, and I was told that the tires still have some mileage on them but will need to be replaced down the road—exactly what Larson had initially told me. Also, it was interesting that Discount Tires discovered that my tires had very low pressure and needed air. Larson apparently did not check tire pressure in spite of the fact that they thought the problem was the tires—after replacing the wheel bearing!)
I sent a letter to Larson asking for reimbursement of the charges for the wheel bearing, a service that was apparently not needed. They refused, and I filed a complaint with the Office of the Attorney General. Larson responded defensively saying that the clunking problem was resolved and that chattering and clicking noise was due to worn tires. There is NO chattering or clicking—only clunking!
The last straw was Larson”s response to the Attorney General which stated, “Mrs. _____ on behalf of her husband has filed this AG complaint....”. The Audi is my car, and my husband had absolutely nothing to do with my requesting reimbursement or filing the complaint. Clearly, the service department dismisses women and likely takes advantage of us when we bring a car for repairs. Beware women!

Classless in Seattle: awful customer service & tactcs - dda
I spent many hours negotiating a $50k+ Audi and when I agreed and said "let's go" their response was "sorry, we just sold it a few minutes ago." Keep in mind that I had been back and forth with the sales rep every 10 minutes or less on email. He kept saying that he had to check with his deal desk so they certainly new I existed.
I presume the person that bought it offered a bigger profit for the dealer. Some would look at this and say yeah, that's business. My experience tells me otherwise. They should have told me there was another buyer and given me a chance to say yes. I know for a fact (or at least from what they said,) that I was the first person to test drive it a few days ago.
I emailed the GM expressing my disappointment. His CYA response was less than satisfactory. I will never step foot in that dealer again, which is a bummer since I have a wife and two kids are that are going to need cars soon and from what I hear sister dealer, University VW, have a similar poor taste in customer service.
I bought a new A4 from them through Internet. Everything... - Datmovingsale
I bought a new A4 from them through Internet. Everything was as expected. No surprises on price and they don't try to aggressively sell options in the finance discussions. Would definitely buy from them again.
