I think I posted this on some other thread, they all blend in after a while. But I tried ordering a 2012 2SS/RS Vert, IBM, on 4/7/12 and the dealer took my deposit and order and a month later calls to say they are out of allocation. They should have known that before I stepped in the door. Got my grand deposit back and had to fly to CO to find my car, but persistence pays.

Not to be a buzzkill, but is it any wonder why GM has the problems they have, you have to beg to buy a car off them, meanwhile they are half the size they were just a decade ago and a mere pittance of where they were in 1960 when Dinah Shore was singing their praises? Do you realize just the Chevy Division of GM in 1960 sold more cars than all of Ford/Mercury/Lincolns combined?

I love my Camaro but GM needs to learn how to sell cars the customer wants (Camaros, Vettes) and forget about pipedreams like the Volt.

Thanks,

Tony

If I gave the dealer my deposit of $1,000 on June 22nd, when should I be expecting any word from GM regarding build dates and other ordering info? Shouldn't I be receiving an email with all of the particlulars of my order?

Thanks,
Colonel

Your dealer should be able to give you a preliminary order sheet with all the details of your order. Once they submit your order to GM they should be able to tell you the TPW (Target Production Week) around the time your order goes to 3400 status.

so in roughly six months my plan is to walk into a dealership and order a 1lt.
going by your post price Is negotiated when the car is ordered and a deposit is mandatory, Is this correct?

Ordered my 2013 Camaro on 6/22/12. Negotiated price and paid a deposit of $1,000. Car arrived last week and is now at the dealer having the dealer installed options added. Should be ready this week for me to pick up.

2103 Camaro

I had a 1969 SS that I had to sell when I went into the Army. BIG mistake.
Now my wife says I am reliving my early childhood.
Besides it is a beautiful car!

So does anyone know the last date to order a 2013 ZL1? I'm getting the complete run around and cluelessness from the local dealer. I'd like to get in on a 2013 instead of the 14.....but can't get a clear date on how late I can order. Won't be ready until early May. Hoping that's not too late?

I read on another thread you have to order before April 13th I think it said?

Still waiting

On March 30th I ordered my long awaited Camaro. A 2013, 2LT/RS convertible in Blue Ray Metallic w/colour matched ground effects. I got what I thought was a good price for the car, gave them the deposit and was told they (the dealer) would hear if the order was picked up by GM early the following week. It is now 3 full weeks later and all I've gotten though the dealer from GM is a 99% certainty that they will make my car. I'm told that once they DO pick up the order it will likely be the end of June beginning of July before I get my car.
Am I being jerked around by GM, the dealer, both?

One observation, why do I pay more for freight than someone in the US if the car is made 15 minutes from my house? odd

I contacted the queen of all Camaro info/my favorite Camaro salesperson, Becky, and here's what she said today:

"The 19th was the last day for unallocated sold orders - orders dealers could take without needing any Camaro allocation to place them. This week and next are the last for allocated orders. So if the dealer has Camaro allocation they can place a sold order against it."

Check Becky/dealerships for allocation quick, and good luck!
