This is my eleventh Audi.
There are few brands that really appeal to me and match my style. Those that do, I'm very brand loyal. The biggest disappointment here is that due to Audi not returning that same customer loyalty, I no longer feel I can support the brand not only with my dollars, but with my voice. No more will I be selling the Audi brand in person, on social media, or in multiple Audi and other car forums. I saw myself owning Audis for the rest of my life.
Unfortunately, the message from corporate is loud and clear: they don't give a damn.
