    Raving Fans!
              This is not my first car purchase, I've had four previous cars,

            but I have to say this has been my best experience so far. Rick Cavender is always a gentleman and takes time to speak with me when I took my previous Audi in for a service. He even took the time to show me a few cars before his meeting, which shows he hasn't lost touch with the customer. He is not just the owner sitting at the top looking down, he still is hands on showing his love for his people.

    - Deborah C.

              It was a great experience! This is my 6th vehicle I've bought with

            Audi Dominion. I will strongly recommend their customer service, excellent knowledge of the car and specially on the Audi Sport line. All the crew in service, technology and parts are excellent too! Congratulations to Mr. Rick Cavender for giving us here in San Antonio, one of the best dealerships in the nation.

    - Carlos G.

              A place full of fun, professional people. I also got to meet Mr. 

            Rick Cavender himself, which was an excellent bonus. I not only would recommend this dealership to friends and family, but to anyone looking for top notch service. Will come back for my next purchase!

He never left me to go deal with more customers (this has happened to me so many times at other dealerships and it was so infuriating), and it was a welcome change of pace. All the staff at Cavender were so nice and offered coffee and drinks and made me feel welcome. I can't stop talking to people about how awesome the whole experience was and keep recommending they all join the Audi Family.
