Unfortunately, the last thing I expected happened and I totaled my leased Audi A4 2019 (508$/12k/zero down) which I really loved a lot and was thinking of keeping. Geico settlement was 34k and car buyout was 28k but since Audi are the “owner” they said that they will not refund me the difference. Now I’m left without a car in a very rough market with a very small car inventory in my area.
I’m mainly looking for a German sedan car for < 600$ a month with 0 down and Audi were like no way we’re gunna do this. My local BMW had a very nice 330i loaner with 4k miles on it for 600$/mo but they backed out last second because “they have to keep a minimum amount of loaner cars at dealership”. Now BMW Atlanta seem to have some nice 330i loaners that may fit the budget of < 600$. What do you guys think, is it worth the travel to Atlanta (3 hours away) or should I buy a used cheap car for a couple months until I secure a better deal from my local BMW? (Audi are unlikely to have a good deal any time soon)
