According to my salesperson, his District Manager told him they were going to do a bulk release, what ever that means.
Same with me.. My CSR at GM Canada just called and told me mine was built and it's in the parking holding lot in Oshawa. She said there is a delay (HOLDING)for ALL of the Camaros in CANADA and did not have a delivery date. She didn't want to give me my Vin#.

I put this question to All, but trying to get an idea from the Canucks. How long from the time you finalized the deal, did it take to get your order pulled and start the process?

GM Canada is being quite painful with this whole process. My car is also on a quality hold having been built the week of March 23 2009. If you look at the shipped vins on the rail thread there are at least three Camaros in transit to Canadian dealers. Two showing arrival on April 24 2009 at Edmonton rail yard and one showing imminent arrival in the Maritimes. Yes I don't mind that they are fixing whatever is wrong with the cars built already, however the District Managers for GM in Western Canada at least don't have a clue what is going on. My 2009 ZR1 order was not pulled for production (stuff happens) but I learned three weeks before my dealer this was the case through the Museum in Bowling Green, and when they did tell me they also stated that no dealers had gotten any Zr1 and argued with me when I pointed out that I personally had seen two at dealers and sat in one of them in Edmonton in the Fall of 2008.

Like I said above I get quality holds I don't understand why they are not up to speed on orders and accurate information that is readily availble elsewhere.

Ok I'm done ranting

I heard GM is having a problem with noise from the power steering lines. Financial troubles are probably slowing down any O/T repairs. Nothing more than just word of mouth I heard.

My car went on line yesterday. I have tried to get a serial number for insurance as they have to have one to insure the car. My dealer said there is a hold on all of the Canadian cars

I, for one, am getting impatient for my car. But, thinking as a mechanic, if there is something not right with the cars and GM is fixing them before they are shipped, I think we will all be happier. I was nervous about getting a car in the first production year as I know manufacturers can have problems with them. GM, I'm sure, knows this too and I am quite sure they do not want to disappoint us with what we have coming. GM is very proud of this car and want us to be proud owners. I'm thinking/hoping this will pay off in the long run.

I have no problem with QA holds, but my car was built 4 weeks ago, they should at least let us know through the dealer an ETA. Don't think that is asking too much. We don't need to know the specifics, just an ETA

And I agree totally with that. The only reason I can see that GM is being so "secretive" (if that's the proper word) is they want this to be perfect. They are one of the 3 involved in the bailout and want to prove themselves. Being a GM man for many years, I like to think they don't need to prove themselves. Let's see them OUT DO themselves!

Well a dealer in Ontario got a V6 today and still no signs of my car, I complained to gm cistomer service and they called my delaer and told them i was bitching and they were told it could be shortly now. When this ranting is over with you can bet I will fume about the status on my ZR1 order next!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I helped gm put many cars on the road when I worked for a high volume dealer and my last 3 Corvettes were nothing but brutal expierences.Lets hope this camaro isn't!!!!!!

How do you get a hold of Customer Service anyways? Are they better to talk to rather than your own dealer? And Anyone from Vancouver?

This is not a new car. I saw it in Detroit in Jan. of 06. One would think that is enough time to get things right. ie. the cheap a$$ wheel weights. What is that? If they do not have the bugs out of it by now I fear what else will go wrong. That's why I like my 67s. I can repair anything that is wrong with them.

Huh??? That was a "CONCEPT" vehicle. Of course this is a new car and as such "new production" vehicles have their issues. If you don't have an early order car then you don't even have to worry about the wheel weights.

The vehicle you saw in 2006 was GM's concept Camaro. The vehicles we are getting ARE new vehicles designed after the concept. The only reason I can figure you think this car has been around since 2006 is because it looks like the concept car.

I received my VIN today. The dealer invoice says May 7 delivery, however the dealer maintains that the May 14 delivery date is still likely.

I received my VIN (******101832) on 4-1-09 thanks to this site. My car has been stting at event code 3800 ever since. My delaer is getting aggravated with me checking on things so I have backed off with him. Need him to be in a good mood to close the deal. So I have been pestering the 866-790-5600 number almost every day. Occasionally, I get the correct information which is the car has been built and is in line for transit, but is awaiting a final quality control check. No idea of the ETA at the dealership so they say. So I wait while some of the later VIN's arrive in Houston. I suppose that there will be a lot of movement after the May 7th splash. Good Luck to all of you that await the arrival of your prized possession. It can't be too much longer.

Waiting for my 2LT/RS - 100936 and nothing yet. I heard from someone who had talked to one of the dealers in my area that they are expecting them within 10 days...hopefully. It sounds like they just don't know?
