Hello – I wanted to mention my recent purchase experience with Mancuso Motorworks of Chicago for the purchase
of an Audi RS5.
I am a confessed car enthusiast and have purchased many cars to date, including everything from Pontiac GTOs to
Plymouth AAR Cudas and the like. I prefer a bit of performance!
As Director of the auto fleet for a billion dollar company, I “get” to purchase all of the vehicles, so I have a fairly good
idea of how the purchase works. I know how to obtain a good deal and can apply the same processes for my
My research brought me to the Audi RS5 coupe, a real driver’s car with Audi luxury. I finally found the right car at
Mancuso Motorworks in Chicago - it was (only) 1,200 miles away! The Mancuso sales representative that I spoke
with seemed like a good guy on the phone - not the typical fast-talking type that I have encountered previously. His
name was Jake. He was very personable and knowledgeable about the car on the phone, and had answers for my
questions. When he didn’t know the answer he found out, which put me at ease. The more I learned about the car,
the more I knew this was the one. I had been studying the market for this make, model, year and options and knew
what the price range should be – and this one was priced right. I coordinated a pre-purchase inspection at the Audi
dealership which I paid for and Jake even took it there and back for me. The car checked out to be in amazing overall
condition, but for a small hidden nail in a tire – which they took care of repairing. We discussed pricing and got to an
agreement which I thought was very favorable to me.
I found a flight and flew to Chicago to inspect and test drive the car. It was impeccable. Jake didn’t know it but I was
sold in the first few seconds of seeing the car. Done!
The test drive just cemented my decision as it was (is) a fantastic driver’s car and looks very understated which is
what I wanted. Jake helped me through the purchase process, then my son and I drove it all the way from Chicago
back to Florida – I have been smiling ear-to-ear ever since!
Thank you Jake and Mancuso Motorworks!
