been a while. I'm surprised that LG likes the new 6 series, happy to see Blkhemi back, and am otherwise still infatuated with all things Audi and Porsche!

#22129 of 22204 North Miami Lexus Owners - Beware of Dealer
Oct 26, 2010 (3:56 pm)
What happened to County Line Lexus in North Miami? This once great dealership has relocated and is TERRIBLE, RUDE, and just doesn't seem to get it.I've been going to County Line Lexus for 14 years. The service used to be great. I'll never go back after today. After never making a damage claim in all 14 years on my car I pulled in and the lady who approached my car started getting on her hands and looking at the car at every possible angle. At first I laughed until about 10 minutes later when she still was "crawling" around the car and marking almost non existant specks on her sheet. My car is almost perfect. Yeah perhaps a scuff or two but this lady was on a mission. Finally, I had enough. What the hell kind of treatment is this. I brought the car in for a major service -- thousands easily. But these folks were hell bent and making an enemy out of this old customer. How dumb. I finally just jumped in the car and said adios to my old friends at County Line Lexus. What a horrible new way of doing business!!! Don't make the same mistake. Dollars never were an issue with me, decent treatment always shows class. R. Evans

Why was she inspecting the car in such a way? Just curious, as I haven`t ever had that happen anywhere with any type of car...Tony

they just had to pay a claim for damage that was suspicious at best. The management puts in a rule that every vehicle must be thoroughly inspected for prior damage. Anyone caught not doing a thorough prior damage check will be terminated immediately. She was just doing her job. No reason to get offended.
When management calms down from having to pay claims, the rules will slack a bit. That's how business goes.
#22133 of 22204 New Audi dealer opens in Wilsonville OR
Oct 28, 2010 (9:19 pm)
Part of the Tonkin group, dealer was officially opened today. Huge dealership, possibly one of the largest in Oregon. We had mayor of Wilsonville (he cut the red ribbon), chamber of Commerce, Ron Tonkin and his brother, and several heads of Audi divisions including president of Audi USA attending. 500+ people, full catering one guitar group, one DJ, almost all the models parked in the brand new service department. Sales people all over the place. Had opportunity to chat with Audi's president and associates, praised them for engineering, politely suggested they reconsider offering Quattro with Diesel engines for the NW states. Liked the Q5 the best.
A pity Audi currently ranks 2nd from bottom for reliability on Consumer Report's latest auto survey. I didn't bring that up .
