I won't pay over MSRP, and my dealer claims they won't put on a markup. We shall see... in 2078, when they start fulfilling orders in the USAt the rate things are going it might be nice to have the $1k back in my pocket.
My current concern are the massive ADMs here locally. At Audi Mission Viejo the markups we're as high as $50k for the fossil cars they DO have. $20k ADM for a Q5 fossil I saw.
don't much care about them having my thousand bucks for now though. Even at 10% return that's negligible over the course of a year.
How much will the ADMs be for the Q4s when they actually arrive? I shudder to think about it.
Here are some sentences from an email I got from my local dealer on New Year's Eve:"Cars will be available [today's date + 3 months]"
Ya know, it's interesting because that actually makes a certain level of sense. Doesn't mean it's not BS, but it's very PLAUSIBLE BS.Here are some sentences from an email I got from my local dealer on New Year's Eve:
"Volkswagen has had trouble getting the Chattanooga plant retrofitted and ready to support the production of the iD4. The iD4 is currently built in Germany and is taking up a lot of the production time that the Q4 needs to be mass produced.
Audi has now pushed back the launch of the Q4 until the end of Q1 into early Q2 2022."
I drive leaf quite a bit as company cars. Not the best range mind.I'm trying out a Nissan Leaf right now. It's so fun to drive and looks great. But the lack of a CCS port is an obvious huge negative and it needs to have about 10% more room inside than it does for me at almost 6'2". It also lacks a lot of frills, but it's efficient and smooth. Plus I can turn off One Pedal driving unlike our MYLR we are trying to sell. The Mach-E was also a fail for me after a 24 hour test drive.
Right now, I have reservations on a Q4 a P*2 and a Nissan Ariya, but I'm also not a fan of the high windows. I haven't been inside any of these, but I imagine I could find a P*2 to try out.
We have the Volvo XC40 P8 but it's range has been doing funny things. It's a thirsty car for sure.
It's looking many of the issues with the XC40 may be caused by a poorly-sealed TCAM module that's located under the antenna fin. Apparently bad things can happen when this module gets wet, and a lot of users are reporting gaps under their fin. Volvo is aware of this issue and is starting to send out TSBs. I'm hopeful that this will lead to changes on assembly line and faster and easier resolutions for owners of affected models.I drive leaf quite a bit as company cars. Not the best range mind.
I really like xc40. If Volvo had more experience with EVs, less call backs, and better range. I would most likely have bought one.
The range is not even the biggest issue, but with so many break issues I can't consider that as a family car.
Be willing to drive a bit and email around. I'm gonna have to go about 90 miles from home but have a dealer more than happy to sell at MSRP.What's worse about my Q4 reservation is the dealer won't tell us what the ADM (markup) will be until the vehicle is delivered. But we haven't even ordered it yet! I've had the $1k deposit into the dealer (MV Audi) since September.
He basically said the ADM will be whatever the "market conditions" are like, at delivery. Madness, it really is turning me off, but I am trying to get the attention of another local dealer thanks to the referral you gave me, @Ps702 (he hasn't responded yet though).
Last time I was in MV Audi about a month ago, they had a $20k ADM for a Q5 and a $50k ADM for an R8.
