Client Experience, John C, San Francisco
San Francisco resident, John, was ready to replace his aging Prius. On a friend's recommendation, he gave us a call to help him get a great price on a new Audi Q5.
Q. What made you realize it was time for a new car?
A: We tend to keep and hold our vehicles for a number of years. We still have the original vehicle we bought when we moved to San Francisco seventeen years ago! However, our 2007 Toyota Prius was getting expensive to maintain, and we decided it was time for an upgrade.
Q. How did you decide on the Audi Q5?
A: I did a lot of research and realized there wasn't anything we loved with an MSRP under 35,000. We didn't love the redesign on the Prius, and we ultimately decided we wanted a slightly larger vehicle. We narrowed it down to the Jaguar F-PACE and the Audi Q5 based on aesthetics, safety ratings, and performance. After test driving them both, we decided on the Q5.
Q. Why did you decide to use Cartelligent?
A: A friend of mine who is a real estate agent and an incredible negotiator told us we had to use Julian at Cartelligent.
Q. What did you like best about the Cartelligent car buying experience?
A: We had gone to our local Audi dealer and gotten what they told us was their "best possible price" on a Q5 that was pretty similar to what we were looking for. When Julian was able to do a little better than that price, they called and said they were desperate to move the unit and offered us a significant discount if we'd come in that night with a check. Julian kept fighting for us and was able to bring the deal down even further. He went above and beyond to make sure we got a great price on exactly what we wanted.
Q. Would you tell a friend about us?
A: Go into Cartelligent knowing exactly what you want and how much you want to pay and let them go to work for you to make it happen.
