Angry Me venting about my low down dealer!

I went in on 10/20/2008 and placed my order with the dealer. As most of use have seen, we walk in to the dealership with more info than they have. So I placed my order.

As time went on, I realized, with the help of our beloved CamaroScotty, that my dealer never submitted my order into Workbench. I finally got them to do that.

I then was informed yesterday that their allocation had gone down and that they are no longer offering GMS which I was told and have in writing that they would if GM offered it.

It makes no sense to me because I am their only sold order. They have no other orders and lots of cars on their lot.

I am done now.

Seems you have some very crooked dealers that are willing to sell you out for a few thousand dollars..They do not want your business apparently so I would get your money back and say s#@$w you and walk out of their..You may have to wait a few more months but at least you won't give your business to those crooks, liars and cheats..

Sadly, I'm sure we'll see more of this as dealers realize the prize they will be getting...Fortunately, it will be short lived with the amount of cars produced.

And some will be placing phoney orders to do the EBay mark up thing, or use internet avenues like this one to get top dollar over invoice.

The have other software that they put the order in and spits out paperwork. They told me that it did not matter because GM was not pulling orders yet. I then asked them because I heard on here people we getting letters and such.

I am appalled and saddened by the greed out there, but not surprised.

That sounds right.

Anyone that is unsure, give your order # in the thread where the member is looking up and posting the info on your order for you. Easiest way to be sure it's really entered at the moment.

Aside from having received both letters from GM anyway (I've received mine yay).

Did your original buyers order state you would be gettting GMS or did it state MSRP?

If you have something in writing, you have a better case but if most of it is verbal, oh well.

If you have it in writing that they would accept it, they have to. If they still refuse tell them that you will be calling your states Attorney General and that you will see them in court.

On my paperwork he wrote both the MSRP and the GMS prices because at the time no one knew if they were going to offer GMS on the Camaro.

I am going to go to a new dealer. F them!

After you go to the other dealer, if you so feel inclined I would write GM and your BBB and let both know what a slime ball dealer this dealer is.

As a former Chevrolet dealer I went to my old factory rep today to find out the truth on the true release date on the 2010 Camaros. The sad truth is the release date has been postponed till probably the end of October at best. Even then the dealers will not see all that many Camaros ! These first release cars will be going at least 2 to 3 thousand over the invoice sticker. Whoever gets the first ones will probably go to the dealers sons and wifes ! The dealers could care less about your frustration and enthusiasm ! I do ! These are some of the reasons I am no longer with Chevrolet. In 1966 Chevrolets motto was
"Putting You First Keeps Us First". These words went out the door along time ago !

I hope this thomas guy isn't right, but I have to admit, my dealer told me my order -which was one of the very first back in mid-october 08 -probably wouldn't get there till the end of summer. I have an order number, reveived the packet from pepper etc...been following up with the allocations....does anyone have production number estimates for the first few months on the camaro?

We need a solid response to this, no speculation or opinion will do. What is being said here is very scary and even if it is not true will cause pandemonium like we haven't see before on this site (and that is hard to believe). Calling on FbodFather or any representative in the know from GM!

Rest easy my friend, this is at worst a total fabrication or at best someone thinking they know something as fact when it is not. Let's apply a little logic here. Why would GM have held the first consensus last Friday, if they were going to delay production until Oct? This appears to just be another "the sky is falling!" post. Remember, if it looks like B.S., and smells like B.S., then it's probably B.S.
