I live in New Jersey but was able to find the car I wanted through cars.com. I had a great experience dealing with Santa Barbara Auto Group. I dealt with CJ, who was very responsive. I would definitely recommend this dealer to anyone looking for a new car.

Fit and finish of a Audi is the best I've seen in any other vehicle I have owned. I've only had to change the oil, brakes, and tires.
I didnt end up purchasing the car but the internet sales rep was happy to help with any questions regarding the car i was looking at. Great customer service.
Plenty of small things going wrong

The car still ran but would have a bunch of smaller issues that became annoying. Windows wouldn’t work, headlights that were supposed to move with the direction of the vehicle froze up, radio went haywire, would feel an unnecessarily high rev when beginning to accelerate. Was very comfortable to drive in though
Was nice talking to a sales dealer all my questions were answered
I would tell my friends and family to go to your car lot
Custermor service was awesome
2018 Audi Q3 Prestige

This car is a great hipster city car with lots of room in a small package. The ride isn't too firm but for someone older it may not be too great. The high entry point is very good and is relatively easy to climb in and out of. I am a person who likes cars with power and this has enough for the city and then some. The car has plenty of passing power during low speeds. If you are on one of Texas's long 85mph highways, then there might be issues. It gets decent gas millage and looks classy. A very nice car to drive and has a quiet interior.
My son's recent car purchase at the Santa Barbara Auto Group - Acura Dealership went extremely smooth. Our salesman Mike Smith took care of everything for him and his first car purchase after graduating from college. He even held the car for him while he waited for his credit union loan to go through. I cannot thank him enough. We had a terrible experience with another out of town dealership and were so glad to be able to find a car and purchase it in our hometown. There are a lot of unethical used car sales people out there, but Mike is not one of them. He made sure that a young novice auto purchaser understood the process from beginning to end. Once he brought the check in, it took about 30 minutes to finalize the entire purchase. Mike has even checked in with us a couple of times since our purchase to make sure everything is still fine.
Pretty car but

I bought a 2016 A3 convertible premium plus package. While it is very stylish and pretty car. Inside there is no voice activation and Siri on apple phones gets shut off every time phone syncs to car . Also no power seats. It was A pricey car for the little options you get. Performance and style are the two big winners with this car.
I used cars.com to scout for a pre-owned Porsche and found an interesting 2008 Carrera C2 offered at Santa Barbara Auto Group. I spoke to the sales rep over the phone and based on that conversation, I visited the dealership. Asking price was attractive given the the car's; appearance, mileage, equipment & condtion and at the right price point to start negotiation. The sales rep, Shane was knowledgible and friendly and the facilities impecable. I found the vehicle was as advertised however, I ultimately decided to pass due to the color of the car (Metalic Ruby Red) ...Lots of these these cars are available so I'll keep looking to find exactly what I want. I would certainly entertain purchasing a car from this dealership if the right car were available.
I AM AN AUDI BRAND WARRIOR

This car does what I bought it for, meets all of my needs and desires. The only problem I have with it is the the door height; (rail to roof) is too short for my liking.
We found a car offered by this dealership on Cars.com and started discussing purchase options and price via email with their representative Chad Deering on a Saturday. He was friendly, professional and very accommodative to working with our needs and budget. So much so that the next morning we drove all the way from Pasadena to Santa Barbara to check out the car, enjoyed a lovely day in Santa Barbara followed by a smooth, no pressure experience with Chad and their finance department manager. In less than 2 hours of arriving at the dealership, getting in a relatively long test drive and doing the paperwork we were on our way back home with the car we wanted, all detailed, full of gas and us as happy customers. I usually dread going to a dealership to buy a car but Chad and the staff at Santa Barbara Auto Group were fantastic. Bill F. - Pasadena, CA

This is the best car I have ever owned (probably the best I have ever ridden in) The exterior is much cleaner than other crossovers on the market, and we test drove almost all of them on the market. It is sportscar disguised as a crossover. I plan to be a lifelong Audi owner and can.honestly say that after 5 months, there is not one thing I dislike about the car.
We just came in to see an F-Type that was on their showroom floor in the color (Black-Amethyst) we had spec'd out (very difficult color to find on a lot). It was a V8 model and we had spec'd out the V6. Within the short time we were there the V8 model price had actually been reduced to a price $3,000 lower than the V6 with all and more of the options than we had originally spec'd out! Our sales representative new the car inside and out, was not pushy and has gone beyond the call of duty in order to get this deal done. Thank you!
My dream car!

I still have my 2001 Allroad (built on the A6) and did not think the A4 Allroad would have the same feel - but I was wrong. The 2018 is solid, has great torque and overall performance is superior. Interior is as impressive as the exterior. Very stylish with outstanding handling for a 'station wagon'!
I have race rallied and rolled cars over the past 47 years of driving. I have been a Subaru guy since buying one of the 1st STI's imported into New Zealand back in the day. For some reason after being overseas for a couple of years, I found myself test driving an older (2006) 3.2 V6 Audi Quattro with only 60k on the clock. Like most used cars in NZ, this was an import from Japan, costing a mere NZ$12,000. One drive and I was hooked. It does everything I've ever looked for in a sports car. Way more power than needed on our roads, economy, handling and breaking. I'm living in a remote area with 15km of winding gravel road and then tight winding sealed road running around the coast. Then onto open highways and the Audi is a pleasure to drive on all surfaces. The doubters tell me Audi's are expensive to repair, my answer "have you ever had to repair a Subaru" I took a full mechanical warranty for worry free driving. Excuse me but I need to look at it.
