#488 of 868 Buy 2011 Q5 or wait 2 weeks for 2012? Price increase?
Apr 11, 2011 (4:20 am)
I plan to order a 2.0 Q5 with NAV, tow hitch and a few other extra features. The tow hitch is actually about $700 cheaper from the factory. Does anyone know if audi plans to increase their prices? If so, how much? It is not difficult to notice raw materials have gone up significantly in last few months. Dealer said it would probably not go up more than 1.5% because they are not making significant changes to the vehicle. Any info would be appreciated.

I just test drove a 2.0TP+ and it had the back-up camera.
#490 of 868 Ordering 2012 Audi Q5 in 2011
May 22, 2011 (1:40 pm)
Recently test drove the Q5 at Audi Westwood MA. Since the 2011 Q5s are no longer available, the dealer offered a $500 discount off the MSRP for 2012 Audi Q5 2.0 OT Premium Plus if I place the order (2012 Q5s should be available in late summer). The MSRP is unknown but, was informed that it should only be a little higher than the 2011 MSRP of $35,200.00 for the base 2.0 OT and with Premium Plus, add another $4,200 to the base which would $39,400.00 total excluding fees (destination, tax, ...etc.). I assume the 2012 Q5 premium plus would be around $40,000 for MSRP. With $500 discount, I would be paying $39,500.00. Is this a good deal? Has anyone else placed an order for the 2012 Q5?

I just went to Audi in Westwood as well and they were all out. They are taking order for the 2012, but I did not really inquire too much about it. They told me to expect up to a 3% increase in price. I don't feel comfortable placing an order or putting down a deposit without knowing the price. Essentially, you would lose any negotiation power. Did they tell you how much a deposit would be?
#492 of 868 Getting only 11.4 miles a gallon in city driving with 2.0 engine
May 23, 2011 (7:31 pm)
Is anyone else experiencing poor gas mileage per gallon in city driving. I love the car but am very disappointed in the gas mileage that I'm getting. I already have over 2,200 miles and it seems to be getting worst than when I first got the vehicle.
The car seems normal in highway driving but as soon as I'm in the city it drops to between 9 and 12.4 miles per gallon.
Any advice, I use the best premium gas, try not to use the AC.
The car drives great, but once in a while the car when idling or slowing down to 1 mph, upon acceleration there seems to be a 2 or 3 second delay as if the car is about to stall then kicks in.

They didn't tell me how much deposit to put down. I'm checking to see if Audi Brookline can give me a better discount off MSRP. I've checked Edmunds.com and Truecar.com and there doesn't seem to be a lot of room for negotiation on the price. Truecar.com listed the 2011 Q5 2.0 Premium Plus with a no-haggle price of around $39K but, these dealerhips are 150 to 200 miles from Boston (and they are out of the 2011 model). I assume the prices fo the 2012 Q5 2.0 Premium plus will be around $40K or a little more. The Q5's inventory in the northeast is scarce.

How much does Audicare generally cost and what does it cover?

FYI. Just stopped by Audi of Brookline MA today and got $800 of MSRP for the 2012 Q5 2.0 with premium plus.

Thanks for that info. When will you negotiate the price? Do you feel like you've lost the power to negotiate, since they're already holding your deposit? That's my hesitation. Also, did you call around for the best deal/deposit/ordering structure?

I've already placed my order with a $1,000.00 deposit. The price will be MSRP minus $800.00. The MSRP price won't be available until June or July. After the they let me know the MSRP, I can decide whether to walk away from the deal or stick with it. There's not much room for negotiation since there's no 2012 inventory (The dealership has more leverage). I basically compared two offers from two dealerships (Audi Prime Westwood vs Audi Brookline). I didn't want to invest more time to visit other dealerships since I really doubt that I can get a better offer. At least ordering a 2012 allows me to get the specific exterior and interior colors that I want plus the options that I want.
