I am a Sewickley resident, and believe strongly in supporting all of our local businesses. That said, I can no longer recommend Sewickley Audi, as they do not represent the class and dignity of what makes Sewickley what it is. Maybe The Sewickley Car Store should pay their sales staff commission, like other auto dealerships. This may make for a better car buying experience for EVERYONE.
I attempted to purchase an R8 off of their show room floor, and they treated me as if I was there to rob the place. I never think of race, in any aspect of life, because I feel it has become an over used, and over hyped distraction in our current society, however I struggle to find the reason I was treated so poorly. Was I so naive that I didn't recognize blatant racism on display?? On my first visit, I was barely acknowledged. On my second visit, I ran into a young, very engaging sales person named Jake. Nice person, who was truly passionate about the cars. He was such a breath of fresh air, that I almost forgot how I was initially treated. As we were discussing the car, I asked some specific questions about the service aspect of the car. A very nice young man named Brandon (a service advisor) joined in the conversation, in an attempt to help sell me the car. To my shock and dismay, the service manager, Matt Liggett came over and ripped into Brandon for talking to me, right in front of me, as if I wasn't in the room! To say I was mortified would be an understatement. I left without further comment. That night, I purchased the R8 from another dealership.
So to complete this story..... I took delivery of the R8. Great car! The display lets me know that it is time for an oil change. I call Brandon (the very nice service advisor), and he sets up an appointment for approximately a week later. He congratulates me on my choice, and tells me how excited he is to see the car. 22 minutes later, Matt Liggett (the arrogant service manager), calls me to inform me that Sewickley Audi will not service my R8, and no longer wants to service any of my cars. Again, I am looking for a reason that I am being treated with such disdain?
