     The General Manager, Jim Mangano, was extremely gracious and want to make sure I had a great car buying experience at his dealership. Jim and his team take great pride in what they do and it shows. Not only did they meet my exceptions at every turn, they far out seeded them!!! Amazing purchase experience to match an equally amazing new Q5, I couldn't be happier with my purchase and my decision to buy from Audi of Charlotte!!!

  • Joe DeMatteo
    New Car Sales Manager
    704.535.8800

    I recently purchased my 14th Audi at Audi of Charlotte, a dealership I return to despite the many options available to me in my area, because my experience there has been exceptional all around every time. Working with Walter Shelton and Joe DeMatteo on the sales side has been a pleasure, and they have repeatedly gone out of their way (even on their days off) to ensure my happiness and satisfaction with the entire car-buying experience before, during and beyond the purchase.

  • Daniel McLaughlin
    Pre-Owned Director

           "I can't say enough good things about how the customer service is above par at Audi Charlotte! The care that Mr. Max Montoya and Mr. Daniel McLaughlin gave to my husband and I when we bought our last car here was incredible. They were very professional, respectful, and accommodating; so much so that the two of them even stayed late to wait for us as we were traveling from out of town to buy the car. They were just the best! The after sales care has also been something that is usually lacking with other dealerships but not with Audi Charlotte. They will truly take care of you. We know where our future business is set to be. They have the best prices of anyone around and treat you like you are their top priority."

  • Patrick Hayden
    Internet Director
    (704)535-8800

    "Started the deal through the internet and then completed by flying in prior to starting new job in a new state. They could not have been any easier or more accommodating to work with. Patrick was great to start the deal, Rich knows Audi's and made the pick up fantastic and Peppi made the financing easy."

    "I was looking for a specific exterior/interior color w/specific options. The team at Audi of Charlotte worked together to ensure I not only had the Q5 I wanted but also expedited delivery so I could pick it up on my way through Charlotte (from Charleston) to the Clemson v Virginia Tech game."

    (704)535-8800

    ·      "Richard is amazing!'"-LETA " Having grown up in around the car industry I really hate buying a car from anyone other then family. Working with Richard was just like working with family however. You can tell that he is passionate about people and taking care of them. I never once felt "sold" or "taken", the deal was fair to both of us. I would buy a car from Richard anytime."


    "Buying a car is one of the most important decisions that we make, yet Rich made it as one of the easiest and certain decisions that I've made on a vehicle in a long time. Rich has a careful-no-pressure approach to guiding you through the tough decision making process. At no point did I feel that I was too far in and couldn't change my mind and for that alone my mind was made up. I'm now a proud owner of a Certified Pre-Owned Audi Q5.Anything that I've needed, I've been assured that it would be taken care of and my high expectations have been met thus far. I'm very pleased with my Q5. It's HOT! Thanks Rich and Audi of Charlotte!"-VICKI

    "I thought I had the perfect car - a BMW 3 Series - until, at the suggestion of Richard Gouhin at Audi of Charlotte, I drove an Audi A4. Richard worked tirelessly until he found exactly what I wanted and yesterday I drove off with my new Audi A4. The rave reviews were correct - the 2017 A4 is an amazing car and Richard made the process enjoyable and seamless."-BETTY

    Team Lead Audi Brand Specialist
    (704)535-8800

    "Had a great experience here. Ernesto helped me from start to finish and he was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Went in already knowing what I wanted and despite not having the car in their current inventory, they worked with me to find the exact car I wanted and had it transported there within 3 days. Have had a few questions since then and they are working with me to resolve them. Highly Recommended. Ask for Ernesto!"-KARAH


    "I met Ernesto after arriving at the dealership unannounced. He listened well, he knew his product, and he was informative. He had to locate the car that I wanted. He stayed in close contact regarding the progress that he and Audi of Charlotte had made. I had the car in about 10 days, which was well within my time frame. I was very pleased with the sales experience, especially when I contrasted it with other dealerships I have used."

He make sure customer is happy eventually. I recommend if anyone of you planning to buy car go and look for Max at Audi of Charlotte."


         " My wife and I recently purchased an Audi Q7. The staff at Audi of Charlotte went out of their way to make sure that we got the vehicle we wanted and were fully satisfied with it. Initially, we couldn't find a Q7 with the options and color we wanted. But as soon as one became available, our salesman, Max Montoya, drove it to my wife's office for a test drive. The entire team was very transparent throughout the process. Once we had the car, Kyle spent an hour pouring over the tech with us. They have been very helpful with any follow up questions we've had since the purchase. It was an overall fantastic car-buying experience. I cannot recommend this team highly enough."-CASEY
