Honestly I am surprised too. ANd I am surprised how quickly we pivoted from "no VAG products" to "okay, maybe this is the right move". Goes to show you that a great product and better care can reset a customer experience.You have a great car here and I hope it serves you well. Its weird to think that one would have an issue going with a cheaper car in the future if finances dictate that. That's like saying don't have a steak tonight because all you could afford tomorrow may be a burger. Just weird.
Anyways, the car has a great color and I enjoyed reading your post. I did not think you'd give your dollars to VAG again after the Golf R issue you had. But, after checking out this SQ7 I don't blame you. It is quite a machine.
I am probably done with VW for good, but my Audi relationship has legs. I also think a good dealer makes all the difference, another reason why I wanted to give a hat tip to Brandon and FJ. Its not often that the sales process matches the expectations of the car - that just doesn't happen these days.
