Honestly, I don't care about your rattles...
I don't buy it. You must care a little bit, even if you try and convince us and yourself you don't. The fact you spend time reading and replying to this thread tells me you do care....even if it's only a little bit. You don't need to feel bad about it, unless you want us to know you feel bad and are in some way looking to us for some kind of help or validation? Were all here for you dude, seriously. I'll help anyone. Just don't burn your bridges, it'd be a **** of a thing if your GT started rattling.
Listen, you might not care about his rattles, but nobody cares that you don't care that Audi doesn't care. Nobody cares anymore, that's the problem. We all know it, but we carry on anyway as to do anything else makes you an a$$.
I've not visited America for many years, but I remember the customer service was always really great. I'm not sure that's true anymore? It seems as bad as it is over here.
The world really is messed up, and the real kicker is I don't blame anyone for it. Audi staff are probably low paid, even more so with inflation so can you blame them? If I was over worked and under paid I wouldn't care either. There should never, ever be any so called goodwill credit to burn up as you put it. Goodwill? what for? He's the customer!
Who's in the driving seat (pardon the pun) these days. The customers with the money, or the business with the product, a luxury product no less. It's like we're doing THEM a favor! Not in my world, you want my money you need to earn it. Audi should be rolling out the red carpet! Yes sir, we'll get straight on it sir, I'm sorry you are having these problems sir, would you care for a coffee sir. Not, it's not our problem, we're not interested, come back when you want to buy another car.
In these trying times, any business should be trying to keep customers coming back. You think he's gonna spend another $100k+ with them next time? I wouldn't, I'd be on the road to my nearest Porsche dealership.....knowing full well they are probably just as bad.
Does the world have a reset button? Not the red one under Putins desk, but the other one.
