Vert disappointment -HELP

I placed my order at Marc Heitz in Norman Oklahoma on 18 Dec. I spoke to my salesman this and he told me it was at 3000. I asked for the order number and he said he would told with the "order guy" by Friday. I received a call from the "order guy" just now and was told he HASN'T placed my order yet. He doesnt have an allotment until next week. I do not know what to do.
1. Stay with current dealer and reset my thinking
2. Find a new dealer.

If I stay with the current dealer, what do I ask for as compensation or guarantees. HELP

He could of placed your order but if he did not have allocation it would of just stayed at 1000/1100. I had the same problem. The dealer did not have an allocation for three weeks. All is good now but I almost started to go somewhere else. Most dealers do not know what they are doing when it comes to the ordering process. At least you know this dealer will be getting an allocation. If you like the dealer stay with him but if you have many other dealers in your area you might want to check them out before you cancel your order.

Good luck.

Bill

OSUPride That is where i recieven my car from, what are you looking for exactly cause i am here in the area and know a few dealers that i could make a call to and help you out. I got annoyed by MARC HEITZ and used camaro5 to track my car. I walked up to MARC HEITZ and requested the order number in person. If you want to stay with them i can help you by talking to the guys for you. This was my second camaro i bought from them so they owe me.

I thought the dealers already had all their allotments for the 2011 convertibles? I didn't think they were going to get any more?

We were told how many convertible allocation we would get for the 2011 model year convertible, however our allocation is spread out from Jan to June.

And we weren't supposed to get any more but crazy things sometimes happen...we got awarded a BONUS convertible, so we get an extra one!

It just amazes me that this continued dishonesty from dealers still exists in a rather alarming amount. How do they NOT realize in the end they will lose by using these business practices? I just don't get it.

If you really like the dealer you are with then stay with them. I waited 2 weeks before my order was picked up. It was well worth the wait.

I decided to stay with them. I called around and staying with them gets me the car the fastest. I'm just 3 weeks behind where I thought I was :(.

You could always talk to Eric Hall at Classic Chevrolet in Grapevine. He made my order an outstanding experience.

Congrats on finally getting your convertible order number and allocation. Now you get to wait some more

What model and color did you end up ordering ?

Go to the tracking thread and see how to track your order yourself. Do not just take your dealers word. You should be able to monitor your status weekly, and see whether you got an allocation or whether your dealer is still stringing you along. The order number you got means nothing until your dealer uses an allocation... it'll just sit at 1100 forever...

I'm in the same situation (1100). My order was placed on 1/29 and it hasn't moved at all. According to the tracking website, Once your dealer has an available production slot, your order will be scheduled for production. Sounds to me like they don't have the allocation so here is where my order will sit until they do.

Your dealer should know when his/her allocation is ! If not

The Big Wait

I ordered my vert 01/07 and tracking still shows 1102. My dealer told me back in January that they would have allication for my order in March. Roads don't clear up around here till mid april, so hopefully I get mine by end of April. I hope !!!
