Audi Can't Keep up With Demand

Apparently there's a downside to success.

The luxury brand Audi is down to a 27-day supply of vehicles, finding it difficult to keep dealerships stocked.

Obviously, this is bad news for Audi buyers looking for a good deal.

Maxed out at factories in Europe and having to ship vehicles across an ocean means orders for a new Audi can take months.

And if customers face a long wait for what can be an emotion-driven buying decision, Audi risks losing sales as a result.

The waiting game hasn't stopped Audi from turning up the heat in California, though, as sales have jumped from 3.5 percent to 10 percent market share.

Beyond supply issues, Audi is also struggling to push higher-end products.

Only 15 percent of overall sales come from the A6, a number Audi hopes to stretch to 55 percent.

The automaker is hoping the A7 and diesel-powered Q7 SUVs help solve that problem as well.






3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
