HUD windshield bad design
by Ron C from Durango CO

The more expensive model with heads up display uses a different windshield that passes excessive passive solar heat and places reflection at eye level driving. Not a good vehicle unless you are working on your tan or need an additional heater. A/C on full when driving on 70 degree day in Colorado.
Outstanding parts dept, service dept, and sales dept!

My wife and I were impressed time and time again by Santa Monica Audi, most recently by Tammy in the parts dept when she helped us order roof carrier bars and cargo carrier for our Q5. We were previously impressed by the service dept and our 10K service and before that we were impressed by the sales dept when we purchased our Q5 last year.

Very Smooth ride and handling with all the options I required and more. Panoramic View is outstanding. Looking forward to utilizing for skiing once the snow arrives.
Angel was able to help me locate my tire insurance policy. My tire was replaced and all of my other service requests were taken care of very quickly.
Recent Q5 Purchase
by Anonymous but Real Buyer from Clearwater, FL
January 5, 2019
Fantastic Car! I think the best value for money in the luxury crossover SUV segment, its real competition is really the BMW X3 (which I did not test drive). Really purchased for its safety features, but plenty luxurious and the drive/engine is fantastic, esp. in sport mode. Granted, first audi (or german luxury vehicle purchase) but could not be more thrilled!
After searching for a certified Audi all over So- Cal, I came across Audi of Santa Monica. It took just a few clicks to get to know the car I was interested in, via- email. Selena is your go to internet sales manager, she was friendly and forward. I scheduled a test drive and liked the car.

I love this vehicle! I have always owned BMWs..so I was hesitant about moving into another vehicle family. I am so glad I did! This car is great! It meets beyond my vehicular standards!
ZAREH PLOOZIAN made my buying experience quick, and easy. He kept in contact with me all throughout the shopping experience, including keeping in touch after my purchase. Zareh is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable on all of the cars and what the dealership has to offer. I recommend Zareh to everyone I know!!
Best Value in It's Class

After much research and dealership visits, I found the Audi Q5 to be the best in it's when compared to Volvo XC60, BMW X3, and Jaguar. Jaguar was completely out of price range compared to what was already loaded in the Audi Q5 and had what I believed to be an outdated infotainment system, it was not very user friendly. Although I liked the Volvo and its technology, I felt the design of the car to be underwhelming as well as being a slight grade in finishes below the Audi. As for BMW, the ride was just as smooth as the Audi, however, the BMW did not have the quattro handling system (neither did the rest) like the Audi. The Audi came with the options I wanted at a $2-3,000 less MSRP than the BMW. Also, a BMW with the no run-flat option tire is not readily available on the dealer's lot and has to be searched for or factory built. In all respects, the Audi Q5 just came out on top and the dealers were more willing to make a deal than the other brands.
It was a great experience leasing a new car here. Your in good hands and awesome deals with the help of Elena (sales representative) and the manager, Ed. Your going home with a smile on your face enjoying your new car.

The car is very stylish, comfortable and technologically advanced. It also has a lot of get up and go-plenty of horsepower. I can't wait to see how it handles in the snow with the Quattro engine.
Loaner was available with my appointment, car was ready when promised, work was performed under warranty. All staff was customer oriented and efficient. I would recommend Santa Monica Audi for sales and service
2018 Audi Q5
by MariaB from Dade City
December 18, 2018
Love our 2018 Audi Q5 Premium Plus 2.0T. It's a versatile vehicle for driving around and hauling stuff. The back seats fold very easily. We were reluctant to get the 2.0T fearing that the car was going to be underpowered but it's quick off the drive (even from the auto engine stop), agile, and sure on the road. No worries with speed or acceleration. As a bonus, we have been getting 28mpg on long stretches of hwy! The extra leg extension provides comfort and support on long drives. The perforated seats are great for cooling you off and the hot leather. The car has its usual safety technology features, but we're very impressed with the back up camera. The angle is so wide that I could see around a F350 truck or large vehicle to backup safely! The back lid can be programmed to any height which is great for shorter folks like me and of course I can open and close with the wave of my foot. The steering navigation display/MMI suite is awesome. It can take time to get use to the functionality but once you figure it out, it's hard not having it, like the hands free texting. The only issues have been the minor electrical glitches which Audi issued a recall. It took 5 hrs to fix so I was given a Q3 loaner. Overall, it's an awesome car.
Tammy helped me out when my car was totaled. Got me into a loaner/rental with no hassles. Found a great car I wanted at a very fair price. Steve was very helpful explaining the functionalities of the car. Ash got me into the finance queue and the financing was done within an hour. The A6 prestige drives like a dream and I'm a very happy owner. This is the 2nd car I bought from Santa Monica Audi this year. They do take great care of their customers.
It was nice to get beyond the dickering that one is always subjected to from car salespeople. Buying from the comfort of home was nice.

Bought the vehicle for my wife as a birthday gift. I have never been one for Audi though I’ve never owned one. Here’s the big but, I’m impressed with the quality, attention to detail, fit and finish, performance, ride quality and handling. It has it all and does it all very well. Now this is coming from someone that has worked in the service side of a Chrysler (aka Fiat Chrysler) for almost 20 years as a technician and shop foreman as well as a manager at a Gm dealership for 3 years. So I’m not easily impressed with vehicles. Even though we also sell Alfa Romeo (Stelvio) and is a good competitive model to the Q5 it’s still clear the Audi Q5 is the benchmark. My only complaint would be the lack of a touchscreen infotainment system. Come on Audi! Even a fiat pop has one. Overall the 18 Audi Q5 is a very well built vehicle. In a rapidly growing segment the Q5 is leader of the luxury pack. Compare them all and you’ll see package for package you can’t beat the Q5 in price. The Audi virtual cockpit is icing on the cake
They had a Certified A3 at a low price, I was hesitant at first but decided to check it out. Upon arriving, I met Marcus Lombardo, he got the keys to the car and explained all the features to me. To my surprise, it was very clean and even came with an extra warranty. I am so happy with my new A3, would definitely recommend!
Great experience went in looking to just test drive, enjoyed it so much I ended up buying a new 2014 Audi A4 S-line. Made an appointment earlier in the week, came in met with sales (Luis) who was friendly and knowledgeable. We looked at several different options of the same model and ended up on a great price / deal for an A4.
Penske Audi, and Nathan Buttry in particular, go above and beyond in every aspect through the car buying process. Their business model is the way all dealerships should be - getting people into the car they love as easy and painless as possible. Nathan's patience and ability to find solutions is unparalleled. I have already recommended Penske to my company, and friends - and they will have my business time and again!
Joe, one of the service managers, has been super helpful to me during my past few visits. I had my car serviced, and a few weeks later, there was an issue with a potential oil leak. I was in the area, and even though it was past working hours, he told me to bring my car in so that he could check it out. He and his team was able to diagnose the issue and fix the problem without charging me. This is truly great service. Audi should be thankful to have a manager like him.
I want to start off by saying this is the very best customer service I have ever experienced. It started off by emailing Kit Chieng, email@example.com late in the evening about a certified used car online. He responded quickly and quite a few times to answer all of my questions (even gave me the internet price via email). I emailed the following morning to let him know I was going to be there in about an hour. He told me was out that day but that Zorik Garibyan could help me.
My husband and I pulled up about 9:45am. I checked my email and saw that Kit asked if I could wait until about 10 as Zorik had an appointment. No problem, i thought, we can look around. When someone asked if I needed anything, I let them know I had an appointment with Zorik at 10 and they said "Oh let me get Taylor, he is going help you". I was surprised that the person I just happened to talk to in the parking lot knew I was coming. Taylor Ngo introduced himself, confirmed the car I was looking into and had someone look at my car for the trade in value while we took a test drive.
Taylor was amazing during the test drive, explaining all the extras in the car and allowing me to take all the time I needed for the drive. I knew I wanted it (2016 Q3 with 10k miles!). He took us to met Zorik but not before throwing my husbands trash away and getting us water. Zorik was so friendly that he made the numbers all seem so easy and painless! After the necessary time with Zorik we were taken to the lobby to enjoy the water/coffee/snacks while we waited for the finance guy. Taylor came to check on us and see if we needed anything and assured us the car was being cleaned and he would assist us with the removal of the items from our car to the new car. We met with Ricardo "Ricky" Orozco and signed all the paperwork. He was very nice and we enjoyed hearing about his work with Audi.
Taylor collected us and took us to our new car to show us some more items. It was sprinkling and I had to have my drivers side door opened while he showed me one or two things. He said I'll be right back and went to get a towel to dry off my door. WOW! He climbed in the back and continued to show us everything. Answered all our questions, gave us a beautiful box that held our key and another beautiful box with Audi leather key chains.
All in all, I felt like the most important person that ever walked in those doors by every single employee I encountered, even the sweet girl at the desk. My husband bought his GTI at the DTLA VW and he had amazing service there as well. We will make sure that DTLA VW and Audi is the only place we shop or recommend!
They were very nice and helpful and got my car done in a couple hours .I thought I wouldn't get my car done until 5pm thanks for everything!
