Dear Patty, I live in BC Canada, and I am experiencing some problems with leasing problems with Audi. Here is part of the letter I wrote to them, I am wondering if you can give me some advise?

Patty Streeter,  at The rules and laws are different state to state let alone in a different country. What I see is a business that is not very friendly and customer oriented. Obviously it leaves a poor impression with any customer when someone is as unprofessional as you describe. First speak with the owner or General Manager and voice your concerns. I have not heard of a non refundable fee for an A4. You can contact Audi customer care and voice your concerns. You should not lump Audi and all the other great customer friendly dealerships along with the one you are trying to do business with. As you know each dealership is a separate business and only in contractual agreement with Audi to sell and service there vehicle, but internal business is the owner’s decision. You can contact Audi directly here: Audi Customer Relations Toll free: 1-800-822-2834(AUDI) Website: Hope this helps!
