I signed up with a dealer six months ago and was told they never do markups..... two weeks ago I checked where I was on their "list" (4th) and then reconfirmed they would not markup. Well, I guess the story has changed and they would not commit to no markup.

I'm now 2nd on the list with a dealer 150 miles away in the same state, where I received confirmation from the Owner of the Dealership and the Sales Manager that they will never markup any car. I'll be buying from them.

Times are tough for U.S. carmakers. Times are very tough for the dealerships trying to sell those cars, too. One way dealerships can make up a little for slow sales is to sell cars above MSRP when demand exceeds supply. This usually only happens when new (or newly redesigned) specialty models are released. How long demand exceeds supply depends on how much the manufacturer limits production. Cars with artificially limited production (such as the Shelby GT500, Nissan Skyline GT-R, 2008 Challenger SRT8) can continue to command "market pricing" of more than MSRP for up to a year or more. Cars without limited production status (like the '05 Mustang GT, Pontiac Solstice, Ford Thunderbird, Toyota Prius) can only do so until production output catches up with demand.

The 2010 Camaro will not be a limited production vehicle. But many dealers will sell for over MSRP until supply catches up with demand. Camaro V6 production is intended to outnumber Camaro V8 production (just like it has year after year with the Ford Mustang). V6 Camaro production should catch up with demand fairly quickly. Most V6 buyers are not Camaro fanatics and would buy a different vehicle rather than pay anything over MSRP. But most of the people posting on this site want the SS V8 Camaro, which is more likely to command more than sticker. Allocations to each dealer for SS Camaros will be few and far between for the first few months at least. Many dealers eager to secure sales will take "orders" knowing that it may be months before they get enough allocations to even place the V8 Camaros on order with Chevrolet. This happened to buyers of the '05 Mustang GT. If 90% of the advance orders placed with dealers are for SS model Camaros, GM will not halt V6 production in order to immediately build lots of V8 Camaros.

no they wont halt v6 production, they will schedule overtime and pay us well to crank out more V8's. Odds are they have already alotted production times for a V8 outcry. i dont think the general is gonna sit on his butt with this one.

I suspect before may seeing how their goal is 80-100 000 cars a year. but only time will tell.

where did you hear white wouldn't be available until july? white's an extremely popular color. . .kinda funny if they aren't on the top on the list

On the official Camaro website. White won't be available until July 09.

I want white or orange with black stripes, but don't want to wait until July 09. I want to buy a loaded SS manual around May 09 and June 1 09 at the latest. I HOPE white is available sooner then July. I think orange will be TOO popular, plus MANY Challenger SRT8's will be orange.

If you have a Costco near you, get a card and buy it through their vehicle incentive program. Basically, they do all the work in contacting a dealership with the best priced car, typically, below MSRP! You'll likely have to wait anywhere from a week to a couple of months, but if you're a serious buyer, you'll get exactly what you want for a fair price.

Did you get it in writing? I got that on my Sky when I ordered my first one, otherwise it is just his word against yours....

For some of us, we are already forced to wait, and by the time I get my hands on one, the price will be back to MSRP. BTW, how long do you guys thing that will take?

ACK - COSTCO!

We love to beat Costco's price.....because the work with another dealer "up the road".

I had someone tell me the no haggle price Costco offered from the other guy was $600 more then ours on the same Impala....We dealer traded and got their car and sold it

Depends who you try and buy from. Scotty says MSRP or less on all Camaros. Others could automatically add a markup and keep it there for a year or more, counting on people walking in without knowing (or possibly caring) how much the car really costs.

Hey Scotty!

Do you deliver to Hawaii? Were probably pretty much on the low end of the list and get whatever they send. (At least thats what I was told about the vettes). On the vettes, they have to sell whats on stock before they can put in special orders. I'm thinking the camaros gonna be the same thing. Fortunately I have the funds to pay cash, but live so islolated that it might take a long time before they put in my order in for a fully loaded RS/SS. Its gonna be my fun car since my everyday car is the BMW X5 to carry by dogs, bikes and canoes.

Havent gotten much help over here since they know I can buy a vette now and been pushing me not to wait and buy a vette.

We can look into it...We can always drop ship cars to other dealers, and they just do the delivery...they have nothing to do with pricing with the exception they need to do the delivery inspection, and can charge more than usual for it....all things that can be found out in advance....or maybe there's atransit company that can get it over to you for a fee... Either way, I'll offer any help I can

OH; if you can drop-ship cars, that would be nearly as good!!! Nice

Thanks Scotty,

Glad that I have that option and will probably order from you since I am not getting any assistance from the people I talk to here. I really believe that I know more about the new camaro from this forum than they do and that might be why they dont want to talk to me. They didnt know about the IDL in september or that the salesperson camaro 8 page guide was out and wasnt happy that I had to explain what it was.

Do you have a ballpark price on how much a delivery inspection would be or should I ask them? It will give me an idea of final pricing. Cant wait to drive my new camaro!!

If you have a costco card try it, but don't forget to talk directly to the dealers.

When I bought my wife's Mazda5 I found two dealers who beat Costco's price by nearly $2000 and threw in the "Sport Package". I was even able to set up the whole deal via email, which was a huge time and hassle saver.
