             My boyfriend and I just purchased a vehicle from Cavender Audi

            and with great help and assistance from Albert Velasco our financer, we had the best experience ever. They were extremely helpful and very explanatory throughout the entire process, which was fast and easy, resulting in a very comfortable and stress free experience for the both of us.

    - Genevieve C.


              I've been coming back to Cavender Audi since I bought my first 

            Audi in 2010. I came in as a walk-in and Albert Velasco helped me out from the beginning, and to this day, still helps me out with any questions I might have about my current Audi. This guy probably knows more about these cars than anyone on the lot; and he doesn't pressure you into anything.

             I went shopping for a used car and met nice salesmen at four 

            different dealerships. I also decided to stop at Cavender Audi. I am so glad that I did. I found the car I was looking for at this dealership, Audi A6. It is a beautiful car. I want to thank Francis Marias. Sale was completed in two hours. Francis was very knowledgeable, courteous, helpful and went out of his way to make me comfortable.

             Excellent and professional service, worked with Auggie to find my

We were able to contact him via text as we came up with questions after our initial test drive. We were accepted openly and got to drive the top model car we ended up purchasing. 10/10 will buy from Auggie again.

             Domingo worked very hard to get me the SUV I wanted and I love

            it.  They even stayed after closing to insure I got my new car that night and not have to come back the next day to get it.  My house is an hour away so I am so grateful that they took the time with me.  I didn't have to haggle with them on my trade, they gave me exactly what I wanted for it.  Domingo was kind, knowledgeable and very friendly.  It was a pleasure doing business with them and I will definitely refer my friends, family and co-workers to them.

    - Candie R.


             Great experience. Bought a CPO, did all negotiating by phone

            /email. Showed up Saturday morning and did quick test drive. They cleaned it up and had it ready to go while I did paperwork. Domingo was friendly, professional, and a great guy to work with. I plan on buying my next Audi from Cavender.

             Jorge Godinez was my sales representative. He listened carefully

             (listening is something that is difficult for many people) and talked with me about what I wanted and why. He clearly explained how the BMW and Audi driving experience would differ from my Lexus. Great buying experience!  I would definitely use this dealership again to buy other vehicles -- new or used!  Five stars is the highest rating and Cavender earned it.

             My wife and I were looking for a new car. We talked about how long

            and drawn out it was going to be, when we were introduced to Mr Zapata, he made us feel right at home. We told him about the car we wanted, but the car was located in another city. He had the car delivered to Cavender Audi. He made the it so simple with his can do attitude. He worked with us like no other salesman had. He was a blessing to us. Thank you, Mr. Zapata!

    Raving Fans!
             Just wanted to say that Daniel Ramirez is always a pleasure to 

            speak with. He helped me when he dropped off my car and then he called me back one day while he was off work to answer a question. That was a few months ago. I had another question today, and he got right back to me.  Daniel is definitely a good asset to your reputation and is appreciated.

    - Jennifer H.

             The Cavender Audi Tech expert Daniel Ramirez did a fabulous job

            teaching us about the functionality of our new SQ5. He did our initial orientation and handled all of our follow-up questions. We were having issues with our Homelink and he came to our house a second time to inspect for himself the situation. He was extremely professional, courteous, and took personal interest in making sure that our needs were met. Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Calendar Audi and Daniel!

    - H.G.

             We purchased a Q5 from the dealership and I will write a second

            review about the sales experience itself. This one, however, is about their employee Daniel who does the vehicle introduction and technology overview. I really appreciated his willingness to come to our home and introduce my daughter to her new car. He was extremely effective in determining what was needed and how to get the most from the car and the experience. He is very personable and knowledgeable. I have bought many cars and many high end cars and his level of service has never been matched. I even took the time to tell the sales manager what a great asset Daniel Ramirez is to their team.

             Mojda Abdulrashid has set the gold standard for "Superior

She set the bar so high for customer service that I thought she could not exceed my expectations anymore, but she surprises me every time I go back to Cavender Audi. Her commitment and dedication to Customer Service reflects on her and the organization she represents, Cavender Audi.
