I used to work at Balise Chevrolet of Warwick a couple of years ago. The only guy that's still there from when I worked is Mike Hennessy... if you do go there, he's the salesman to talk to. He's the one that does all the ordering for them and actually knew what was going on back in October when you could first place an order. They are actually really good about working a deal with you. At least they were when i worked there.

Wow... that means EVERYONE that was there when I was is gone. Including the Managers and General manager/part owner. I'll have to go check back in with them again. When I was there they were generally the first dealership in the area to come down on price with new models.

I bumped into Mike Hennessey yesterday when I stopped to check out the Camaro's at Hurd in Johnston, RI. They have two of them there and they are twins! 1LT/RS, Red with black cloth interior. If I remember correctly, they are selling for MSRP plus a couple hundred dollar service fee.

Oh yeah, he also told me that he heard that NONE of the Rhode Island dealers got the letter that their dealership was closing.

I just stopped by Balise this past Sunday looking to see a Camaro. To my surprise, they had a 2SS Black 6 speed in the showroom. Evidently, the person that ordered it lost his job. :(

Balise placed a $12,000 dealer markup on this car and I told them that's crazy. I realize dealers do this but NOT all dealers do. The sales person also spoke the typical sales jargon which I cannot stand. I'm not getting a warm and fuzzy feeling from them.

Yeah, I'm not overly impressed with Balise either. I touched base with them, and they told me that they were marking up MSRP, and they were not accepting the GM Supplier discount. So I crossed them off my list. A week later I get an email at work from them, asking why I have not come down to see them. I told them that I have quotes from other dealers at MSRP who are accepting the supplier discount, so why should I spend more money at Balise for the same car? Then I got a phone call asking if I had that pricing in writing, which I do, and then I was told to come down to the dealership, because they don't turn away any offer, and maybe we could work something out. Then they started with the typical salesman BS, and at that point I was done. They said "we'll call you in a week and see how things are going." I told them not to call unless they were going to offer at minimum MSRP and the supplier discount. Needless to say, I was never called back.
