It has been sunny and dry in the Portland, Oregon area for almost 30 days straight and if you know anything about the North West you will know that that is an abnormal dry spell for us. I almost started to forget I lived in Oregon. Even though its summer and for most people that means no rain whatsoever, when you are so use to wet cool days, every now and then you start to miss it! (secretly of course!) Well today it started to rain and I was reminded that I was still home in “the Great North West!” As the rain fell in front of my window I looked at the local KATU Weather Forcast to see the traffic advisories for my clients coming in and out of our Service Department, just to give them an indication of what was happening on the roads. At this time I was reminded of two things; first, we build the safest cars on the road, and second, how lucky we are to have Quattro All-Wheel Drive . No matter if this is your first Audi or your ninth you will undoubtedly have a “Quattro Story;” that time or moment when Quattro either saved you and your family or just made your journey possible.
As I was writing this article, I received a phone call from a client I had sold an S5 to. He told me a few weeks back, and five days from his wedding day, he averted an accident with a deer and crashed his S5 with his groomsman in the car. They all survived, walked away, and he was married, on time, five days later. I don’t know if it was the timing of what I was writing about, or the looming wet weather and slick roads, but it really made me think about Audi and what the safety of this vehicle really means. He later called me to get another S5 and I wanted to know what he had liked about the S5 previously and he replied, “it was an amazing car, it saved my life.”
At the end of the day, you can’t put a price on quality or safety and Audi will never make you choose between the two. They both come standard on every model. Email me your “Quattro stories.” I would love to hear about what your Audi does for you!
