Dealer Jacked The Order Up
 
So my Black 1LE was delivered today and it was missing the sunroof I ordered!
:emoticon1: Dealer basically said their not sure how this happened but he does know they didn't verify the invoice so its just as much their fault.
So I can order again and wait 5+ weeks. Or come up with some way for them to make it up.... what should I ask for? I did find a $1000 voucher on an ad from the dealer that I'm trying to get them to honor (it says its for "in stock" sales)
One smart thing they did was let me take it out for a drive......GREAT CAR! The clutch and short throw are amazing, love the NPP exhaust
What else to ask for?

The embroidered SS armrest should cover it. If you ever track the car you'll be glad you don't have the sunroof.

Ask for double the amount of the sunroof in accessories.

Casperadub70 08-20-2013 07:53 PM

I agree. I didnt get the sunroof only because of the track.
Its not as a big of a deal as yours but when i picked mine up it was missing the SS armrest and the nicer floor mats.
If its not a big deal to you either way just keep that one

Have them pay the ttl...

Arodr395 08-20-2013 08:11 PM

I decided to get the sunroof because I don't plan on tracking the car. I also didn't get any LPO items since ill probably add them to the final price when the car gets to the dealer. Either way LPO items have to be installed by the dealer so if it didn't come with the car it wouldn't really matter.

Accessories are the easiest way to get them to do it. For $1000 dollar credit the dealer may spend $500. That's a good deal for them.

If it were me I would ask them to order the ZL1 side skirts and paint them and we are even.

Zl1 side rockers look much better on the 1LE unpainted IMO. Matches the splitter

If you wanted the sunroof get it. No amount of freebies will make you happy if its not the car you wanted. They can always give you something for having to reorder.

When I say painted I mean the same style as the ZL1 where the only the top half matches the paint and the bottom is left to match the splitter

Very true.

newb 08-20-2013 09:31 PM

Weigh how much you really want the sunroof. Most people rarely use it and you lose a fair bit of headroom in the Camaro. If its a must have. Reorder. Otherwise get some free accessories and call it good.

Personally, it wouldn't be a deal breaker but everyone is different.

Cool1LE 08-20-2013 10:31 PM

Accessories are a good idea - thanks for the input everyone

mlee 08-20-2013 10:35 PM

That's the ONLY option I wouldn't have is a sunroof. I wanted an Auto and settled for a Manual, but I would never settle for a sunroof. JMHO

Take the car and enjoy the extra headroom and reverse Mohawk.

Re order and get some consideration for the SNAFU.

agree ! also so true

Fraxum 08-20-2013 10:47 PM

It is nice to have the extra room for a helmet. But if you are someone who would use a sunroof, you will miss it. I love mine and use it often. I rarely put on the AC.

I also heard the Recaros can seat you lower than the standard Camaro Seats, so the sunroof would be less of a problem if true.

If it were me, and I planned on keeping the car, I would reorder.

CrystalRedTintcoat 08-20-2013 11:19 PM

I traded my 84 Z28 for a Saturn in the 90s. The dealer cut $500 off my trade in on the the day I was to pick up my Saturn. I asked for the Saturn refund and they refused. I walked. They called my house (before cell phones) and offered me $500 in dealer installed options. I took it. I was an idiot. I always wanted what was promised. I never bought from that dealer owner group again and never will. The car after the Saturn (jeep grand cherokee) I ended up driving 30 miles away to get in order to avoid this douche bag dealer.

Don't settle.

I really like the sunroof and I do track the car (I knew what I was getting myself into. Also I am not that tall). I just love how it makes the inside of the car so much brighter (even when not open) I would reorder

This is my struggle.... I'm waiting to see what they come back with..... I'm only 5'9" and with the Recaro's I don't think I will have an issue with a helmet....... just hate that I may have to wait another 5+ weeks...... :doh:

Mojave 08-21-2013 10:53 AM

You are I are about the same height. Just went and checked fit. With my Recaros all the way down and my helmet on there is a little bit of room above my head. A little bit, not much but I can move around normally.

wkid1le 08-21-2013 11:22 AM

I would reorder and ask the dealer for some compensation via free accessories for the inconvenience they caused you. Done in a nice a professional manner, they may agree. Get the car exactly how you originally wanted, in the long run it will be worth the additional wait.

Vjc834 08-21-2013 01:59 PM

5 weeks is a long time to wait when you want the car but every time you drive it you will wish it had a sun roof and that will be for the next 5 years minimum, (a lot longer than 5 weeks).
