This happened to us once. Back in Feb of 08 we ordered our Buick Enclave. While we were waiting for the car to be built GM had a strike. In mid june we received a note that our 08 car would not be built as they retooled for the 09. We talked to the dealer and said fine keep the deal the same and the dealer ordered the 09. The car arrived at the dealer a few days later, and along with it the new pricing. About $1500.00 higher. Because of the timing and strike, the dealership did not have the any of the new paper work until the day after the car arrived.
