ton of knowledge about cars in general and knew everything about the 2022 Audi e-tron we purchased. He was very easy to talk to and was not pushy at all. To top it off, we decided we were going to come back the following day to make the purchase and he happily came in on his day off to make everything happen. I HIGHLY recommend Ahamed at Audi Gilbert if you’re in the market for a new ride!

10 am PST, my boyfriend was negotiating 2021 Audi Q7 purchase from Ahamed Barakath, on of the Sales people there, I was going to purchase that car remotely as I was vacationing in NY.
We secured a price of around $66K and Ahamed was requesting me to complete a credit application. At around 1.30 PST I received an email from Ahamed with a link and completed a credit application (providing my SS, DL, income etc) information as we led to believe the car would be ours upon the credit application approval . During the entire process the 3 of us were talking over group text chat.
When by 6.30 pm PST we did not hear from Ahmed, upon multiple attempts to reach out, Ahamed told us that someone came in and put a deposit on the car and the car is no longer available.
So, A) Ahamed took my credit application even the car was not available in the AM or B) Ahamed took a deposit on a car in the PM for which I already submitted my credit application for earlier in the day, instead of telling the perspective buyer that Another perspective Buyer ( me) already submitted a credit application on that car and they need to get back to me first.
At around 7 pm PST, we called the dealership directly and spoke to a very rude sales manager named Trevor and expressed our dissatisfaction with Ahamed's deceitful practices. Trevor was the rudest person, not apologetic what so ever, did not try to make things rights.
At that point, I requested to delete my Personal Information from their databases, and Trevor said that they have to hold on to it for 2 years.
I indicated that my information was taken under false pretenses, I was not going to buy a car from them after all of this and they did not yet run my credit (so they said), so there is no business reason to hold on to my personal information. He refused to even look into it. Trevor also refused to provide name of the dealership's General Manager and the General Counsel. These people are the most rudest sales people with no concept of privacy laws or information security handling standards. Gilbert Audi Dealship will be hearing from Arizona Attorney General very soon and a various Consumer protection Agencies.

work with during the entire shopping experience. We asked [and were able] to complete a large portion of the process online prior to arriving. After getting to the dealership and seeing how gorgeous it was, we almost regretted not spending more time in the store. The car was clean and in the delivery area awaiting our arrival. The experience with Trevor (and the entire team) could not have gone more smoothly. I would highly recommend them!
