I recently purchased my 14th Audi at Audi of Charlotte, a dealership I return to despite the many options available to me in my area, because my experience there has been exceptional all around every time. Working with Walter Shelton and Joe DeMatteo on the sales side has been a pleasure, and they have repeatedly gone out of their way (even on their days off) to ensure my happiness and satisfaction with the entire car-buying experience before, during and beyond the purchase.

He make sure customer is happy eventually. I recommend if anyone of you planning to buy car go and look for Max at Audi of Charlotte."


     " My wife and I recently purchased an Audi Q7. The staff at Audi of Charlotte went out of their way to make sure that we got the vehicle we wanted and were fully satisfied with it. Initially, we couldn't find a Q7 with the options and color we wanted. But as soon as one became available, our salesman, Max Montoya, drove it to my wife's office for a test drive. The entire team was very transparent throughout the process. Once we had the car, Kyle spent an hour pouring over the tech with us. They have been very helpful with any follow up questions we've had since the purchase. It was an overall fantastic car-buying experience. I cannot recommend this team highly enough."-CASEY

·      "Richard is amazing!'"-LETA " Having grown up in around the car industry I really hate buying a car from anyone other then family. Working with Richard was just like working with family however. You can tell that he is passionate about people and taking care of them. I never once felt "sold" or "taken", the deal was fair to both of us. I would buy a car from Richard anytime."


"Buying a car is one of the most important decisions that we make, yet Rich made it as one of the easiest and certain decisions that I've made on a vehicle in a long time. Rich has a careful-no-pressure approach to guiding you through the tough decision making process. At no point did I feel that I was too far in and couldn't change my mind and for that alone my mind was made up. I'm now a proud owner of a Certified Pre-Owned Audi Q5.Anything that I've needed, I've been assured that it would be taken care of and my high expectations have been met thus far. I'm very pleased with my Q5. It's HOT! Thanks Rich and Audi of Charlotte!"-VICKI

"I thought I had the perfect car - a BMW 3 Series - until, at the suggestion of Richard Gouhin at Audi of Charlotte, I drove an Audi A4. Richard worked tirelessly until he found exactly what I wanted and yesterday I drove off with my new Audi A4. The rave reviews were correct - the 2017 A4 is an amazing car and Richard made the process enjoyable and seamless."-BETTY
