Honestly that's hard to believe. I negotiated with about 10 audi dealers in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and best these guys could do was about 3 to 4 % off. I don't know how u got such a huge discount. Wow. Care to share?

#735 of 742 Invoice Price is the deal
Jun 05, 2013 (5:45 am)
I have two dealers here in the Tristate area offering me invoice price on the 2013 model these days. It's stock liquidation time, don't let them make money off of you at this point. If Acura can give generous discounts off of the car price, why couldn't Audi do it?
I am not convinced I can afford this car, so I will push further to get even more discount. Buying is not a must for me.

I just bought a 2.0 PP with MMI and AudiKey for 45k OTD in tri-state area. I believe when I worked the numbers out that I paid 91.5% of the MSRP.

There was a trade in vehicle in the calculation. So his buying experience / price paid is somewhat skewed. Technically he got his for $41,xxx. Still an excellent price.
#738 of 742 Brand new audi with oil problems
Jun 09, 2013 (10:10 am)
I recently purchased a new 2013 q5 2.0 and after less than 2000 miles and 4 months the oil light went on. The dealer was flabbergasted at this and claimed to have never seen this type of problem before on a new car (would they say otherwise?). So after running the full diagnostic on it they wanted me to do a special oil test where they drain it, weigh it and have me back after a certain time to weigh oil that's left. Well i just got the results back and they weren't good. They found a problem with oil usage or leakage and need to replace major parts in the engine, including the longblock which is about $5,000 according to quick search online. The car will be in the shop for 2 weeks!!! Audi wanted this repair done asap and had already overnighted the parts from germany. NOW WHY ON EARTH WOULD AUDI BE SO QUICK TO MAKE THESE MAJOR REPAIRS??? THEY MUST KNOW THAT THIS NEW Q5 REDESIGN IS HAVING MAJOR OIL ISSUES LIKE THIER OTHER CARS "USED TO" HAVE. I'm currently waiting to hear back from corporate regarding a buy back or other fixes. I just want to make sure others out there looking at this car are aware of these problems because it is not isolated to just this model. I used to have an a4 that literally died because of oil problems. That one related to a recall on a part that I was ever notified about. PLEASE DO MORE RESEARCH ON OIL PROBLEMS BEFORE YOU CONSIDER AUDI, AND DON'T TRUST THE DEALER TO GIVE YOU AN HONEST ANSWER THAT AUDIS DON'T HAVE THESE PROBLEMS ANYMORE.

Wow, we just got an oil warning message after 2k miles and the car is less than 2 months old. I put oil in the car since I was away from home. I called the dealer who said they probably forgot to top off the oil when they prepped the car. This is great info you posted. Now I can challenge the dealer when I bring in the car. Thanks for sharing!

You already had a problem with Audi before. Why would you even go back and buy another car from them?

I've read about this on some forums, because I'm also passively working on buying a Q5. Someone said that his Toyota manual wrote that it's OK for the car to consume up to 1L/1000Km. Someone said of the Audi (I think of the Q5) that up to 2L/1000Km is within specs. I found some other forum discussing things like GM and Buick, and they talk about oil consumption all over the spectrum. Don't know what to say about this, whether it's a real problem or just a nuisance.

I stuck with them initially because they offered me a partial credit for the car and discount on a new one. Granted that was in 2009 when the economy really sucked and they were desperate to move new cars. The next a4 I got was fine for 3 years, it did consume an insane amount of oil but didn't have major problems. Then most recently we just bought this q5 for a growing family and because it is actually one of the best among the mdx/x3/jeep cohort but after this most recent problem I am swearing off audis forever. I will also make it my duty to inform people about this because the company has refused to acknowledge the issue or offer me any reasonable solution. I want them to buy the car back from me so I can pay off my car loan and be done with audi. No way do I want to own a car that undergoes $5-8k of work on a major oil/engine problem that arose within a few months of delivery.
