If you pre order your camaro ? will you just pay the msrp plus the extras (add ons) ? can the dealerships still have a price mark up? be thinking about that.. cause im putting a deposit down to order one when the dealerships gets the info in December

you just need to find a dealership that wont mark up, and do it before you put a deposit down. I wouldnt pay above MSRP whether i was ordering or not.

I've never paid over MSRP for any car, not going to start now. There are dealers who will sell at MSRP, you just have to look for them.

If you have to have your car in Feb i get the feeling you will pay mark up but once it comes to the end of the model year and they need to sell some cars , well I am sure that price will come down a bit Even though its going to be a long production year.

Never paid above MSRP and never will due to the kick / hold back the dealership gets from the manufacturer. If ya do ur research you can get ur car usually below MSRP if ya wait a few months after the car has been released. Check around for the dealers in ur area, but if ya pay above MSRP you have more money too burn than I do. ")

Yes, some dealerships will gladly take deposits and talk price later.

Get a MSRP or less guarantee! And if it's a few months later, lets talk $xxx over invoice - How's that sound?

That sounds amazing! I was planning on buying mine about 6 months after release anyway! CS, you just keep cementing my decision to buy from you instead of the crappy chevy dealers in my area.

You don't have to pay more than MSRP if you're willing to negotiate. Some dealers, like CamaroScotty, promise in writing that you will not pay a dime over MSRP. Others require that you get it in writing. All you have to do is go to a dealership and demand MSRP or less in writing. If you can't get that, then expect to pay more. It is your responsibility to get MSRP. Most dealers will want more out of you, so you need to aggressively seek the best deal. That means that you will probably need to talk to a few dealers and compare prices, negotiate, and get your demands put in writing.

Or you could go see CamaroScotty.

You noticed that he put three spaces after the dollar sign. That means under $1000 over invoice. I'd feel pretty good about promises like that in the next couple of years.

I'd gladly pay 1000 over invoice, as long as 1000 over invoice = less than MSRP.

Many dealers will try and get over MSRP as long as they can. They actually did that with of all cars the G8. For the first month or so they were asking 4k over MSRP. Since GM will be building 100k cars in the first 12 months I think it is safe to say that within a few weeks or perhaps a couple of months cars will be availible for MSRP or under. If ordering I would do the deal for MSRP or less otherwise I would not consider ordering from the dealer. This car is not like the ZR1, there will be plenty to go around pretty quickly as GM has a substantial manufacturing effort dedicated to this model.

Are you serious?! That sounds too good to be true, really. What are your (you/your dealership) thoughts on a model that might be more limited in production numbers? For example, a future Z28?

CamaroScotty is a salesman after my own heart... volume and value keep you in the game for the long run. No sense charging 10k over MSRP if that's the only one you sell for 3 months when you can get out 10 in the same time frame by just charging MSRP. Then you get 2 of the most valuable things to a saleman: a good rep and repeat business!!

100,000 in the first year is 10,000 a month. GM will want to build and sell. If too many dealers add to the MSRP after April 09 I think GM will investigate why??? MSRP should be very easy by April 09 IMO.


I want to know when White will be available???

Thats white with black stripes???

All you have to do is have the financing pre approved. Take that with you and you'll get the car at MSRP. No Chevy dealer nowdays is gonna let a customer with the cash walk.
