2010 Camaro Order Checklist

So as I read more and more posts about your factory orders, the more I see that most people really don't know what to ask for when they write their deal.

Since we have a system in place at our store for each order, I thought this might be helpful to keep a checklist. If I've left anything off (not likely), please PM me and I will update my CC (Camaro Checklist).

Buyers Order signed and dated by both you and the dealer.

Buyers order should have all options listed with corresponding RPO and/or LPO.

Price should be clearly listed plus any dealer charges (if any). Any incentives or programs at time of delivery should be noted.

Factory order number should be on corresponding buyer's order.

Copy of GM Order Workbench sheet with 6 digit/letter factory order number initialed by you to verify equipment ordered (should match buyer's order).

Make sure your order carries am SRE order type (sold order).

GM Workbench sheet should have proper and correct spelling of customer name, address and phone number (for price protection).

Ask for name of inventory / sales manager (whoever is responsible for ordering) in case salesperson leaves or is out or is an idiot (lol).

Ask for the dealer's estimated guide number and also, what number Camaro you are in line with respect to all others ordered before you.

We have our preliminary order list with priorities for any Camaro customer who has placed a sold order with us. It is available for any of them to see upon request. You may want to ask if the dealer has the same.

Finally, don't be an a-hole. Establish a relationship with your dealer. I assure you will get much more with honey than vinegar.

That's all for now.

Have fun.

Nice list RPO.

This has been asked a couple of times and I haven't seen an answer. Perhaps you can help. What is the difference between an SRE order type and SDC - Sold Order?

Wow! Thanx. That assures me that my dealer did exactly what he was supposed to do.

I'm not sure if he's ordered a car but I have a feeling that he'd order a car from himself if he were to

Hey RPO, any advice for buying out of town? My dealer is 7 hours away, so naturally, signed agreements are hard to obtain. Any thoughts or considerations? Thanks...

Hey guys! I have been lurking here for some time, and finally decided to join today because I have a question. After reading this checklist and going over my workbench order, I noticed mine is marked as a Retail Order, not a Sold Order. What does this mean for me?

Is it SRE? If so, then that's a "Sold Retail Order" which is correct.

I didn't do this when I ordered but I'm glad I've learned the info since then. It's best to talk to the people who actually push the buttons!

Bumping this back up as there are many questions regarding what to ask for when you order.

Hope this helps.

Simple.

Bring magnifying glass.

Check over whole car before paying and doing paperwork.

Enjoy.

I wish I had known this before I ordered. I only have a "Buyer's Order" Options that I ordered are not listed. I was given nothing but this "Buyer's Order" from my dealer. Also I see nothing on this order that states "retail, or sale order". I had to call weekly for updates and was only given my order number when I specifically asked for it...same with the VIN#. And for that one I was told the salesperson would have to talk to the sales manager to get it for me. Does any of this sound normal or OK to you? I put $500 (only) down and was pre-approved for the loan up front. My family has purchased a total of 9 vehicles from this dealership - which is in our town - and is now one of the dealers that GM is closing. I am super upset about this now.
