Crown Eurocars Audi — Clowns
On 8/28/10 I reached an agreement with Crown Audi of Clearwater FL on a 2007 Audi A4. I went home to get my certified bank check and approval from my wife. The dealership called and told me they sold the car to someone else after I shook hands with the salesman and the Sales Manager and signed a sale price document. They never called to tell me to hurry back or ask the other buyer if they could take a back-up deposit on the car. They disregarded a verbal and written agreement and went for the deal with a higher gross. This is an example of why dealers have such a bad rap and why people call many dealers shysters. However, I will not stoop to their level and call them that; I will just refer to this group of unscrupulous individuals as the Crown Clowns.. and caution everyone looking to by a car in the Tampa-St. Pete area to steer away from Crown and go to a reputable dealer. I also recommend Audi consider finding a dealership that better reflects its brand because Crowns actions are on par with the Yugo brand junk.
