Too Much???

Hey everyone just joined the site, have been lurking for about a month now since my previous vehicle got totaled, and now want to purchase a camaro.

I have my eye on a 2LT/RS package camaro, manual, with a sunroof.

Initial price the dealer gave me was 32,800. (I was dealing with the fleet manager) And he said he could not go a penny lower.

I eventually ended up bringing it down to 31,700...and told them I would do it for 31,000 which the floor manager said he would try and do, at this point I left and told him I would need to think about it.

Do you think 31,000 is too much for a 2LT/RS package, manual with sunroof? I tried pushing for 30,000 but he said no way thats possible, and that I would need to move down to another model.

Thanks in advance! Great site by the way!

TO be honest I think that's to much since you cant get an 1SS for 32k

He's blowing smoke up your a$$. Gotta come armed with a set price before you start to negotiate with most of these aholes. Go online and build your car so that you can at least go in with an MSRP. There is no reason why you can't get the car for that amount.

Oh and welcome to the site!

Apparently there is some 1,558 protection package that deals with the paint and leather thats already included along with wheel locks??

I felt like they were asking too much...

It's BS. We skipped all of those "protection plans" except for the alarm. (Which has already paid off )

Don't let him tell you that you can't get the car without those "plans", because you can.

If he's still trying to push stuff on you under the pretense that you HAVE to pay for it, I'd go elsewhere. Sounds dishonest.

Thanks, really appreciate the quick responses.

I'm also thinking about moving down to the 1LT/RS model...a lot cheaper. I'm gonna go check out some other dealers around me.

I would if I were you (check out other options) but not before you get online and find out how much you should be paying with the options that you want

Also, they keep telling me that they cannot install bluetooth to the 1LT's...

Is this true?

A 1LT (or 1SS) with the Convenience and Connectivity package includes Bluetooth, USB, Leather Wrapped Steering Wheel, Steering Wheel Radio Controls, and Leather Wrapped Shifter.

But, you do have to order the vehicle with that package, as far as I know. An existing 1LT on the lot couldn't be retrofitted.

Don't buy the LT, go with the SS. Spend more, but think resale

1. Dont sell it! .
2. Yes u can get blue tooth on 1LT.
3. You'll spend less on the LT and save more with less fuel consumption as the SS.
4. Where in Texas u from? The dealer is just pushing for a sale.

Yeah I didn't plan on selling it. And I don't need a V8.

The connectivity package is the only thing that I really wanted, but still I can live without it, car charger and auxiliary works fine in the console. The HUD, Leather, Sunroof, Aux Gauges are cool but not a necessity.

And I'm from Houston. Yeah why lie to my face and tell me you can't go down a single penny from 32,800...and then we are talking at 31,000...these guys so lie much you can't even believe them if they are actually telling the truth.

Which is why I walked after he said 'no way I can go below 31,000' and wanted me to sign that I would do a deal today if he could get 31,000.
