#859 of 868 Planning to Buy Q5 2.0 Premium plus
Oct 31, 2013 (7:37 am)
I am planning to buy my first Audi. Q5 and would appreciate some inputs to finalize my choice
Model: Audi -Q5 2.0 Premium Plus + Nav + Sports Package
I am currently a resident of the state of FL and will be moving to upstate NY (Buffalo / Rochester Area) starting next yr.
Questions: Sales Tax in FL is 6% and the place I am moving to is 8%. if I buy the car in FL and move, do I have to pay the difference in Tax when I move?
Sunroof: I read a lot about the 2012 Q5 had issues with sunroof in cold weather, is this still an issue? does the sunroof can handle the weight of snow that accumulates on the top? is there a internal temp. diff. when covered by snow
Maintenance cost: When I visited the dealer, i was told that only the first service is covered for free? if so, what is maintenance cost. I appreciate some inputs on overall maintenance cost of this car as well over a period of 4/5 years.
Thanks in advance for the answers

I am in process of ordering it and while researching it, for the past few weeks, there was a $1000 customer loyalty rebate. As of today, I don't see it anymore (for that car, it's still there for the 2.0 TFSI and the 3.0 gasoline). I do not remember the expiration of the rebate. My question to the experienced audience here is - what are the chances Audi would come with such rebate again?

Ramesh, look up the leaseguide.com. For me it was well worth the money. The answers to almost all of your questions are there.
About the sunroof, I do think that most of Audi drivers do have means to avoid this problem by keeping the car in a garage . Yes, moving to Buffalo, this could be a valid concern .
Maintenance - likely keeping that in the dealer is overrated and overpriced. If you have a trusted mechanic, you are better of sticking with him. As an Audi Care purchaser, I can say that I am greatly disappointed - $800 for 3 oil changes! That's about what they did. No wipers change even, forget about tires rotation. Just my 2 cents.

It better still be there. I ordered a new TDI just after labor day and I expect it to be here in 3 weeks. Last I saw the owner loyalty was still there and doesn't expire until January of 2014. It references the Q5 but there is no differentiation for engine type.

OK, I was able to find it at Motortrend (http://www.motortrend.com/cars/2014/audi/q5/tdi_premium_plus_sport_utility/3873- /rebates/) but it expires January 2, 2014. I was told that it matters if there is a rebate at the time you get the car delivered, not when you ordered. I don't know if this is correct or not .

Wow, how can you get 8%? Are you trading a car in? Do you have a loyalty discount? I was told that 6% is the invoice price and that they can't go below that.

I just bought the same vehicle (different color) at 6% off of MSRP. 8% off is a good deal in my opinion.

Thats a good price, take it.
Unless you want to wait for another 3-4 months you might not be getting a cheaper quote than that.
