Patience ran out: Getting the Genesis Coupe 3.8 Grand Touring

Sorry Chevy. You've dragged your feet on my 2LT too long. You opened the door and Hyundai kicked it open. This the car I'm getting on Friday:



With that exact color too!

How can you get that close and give up. Just think how you will feel when you see the Camaro on the road. I would re-think that one.

I hope you enjoy the car! In all honesty, I don't know how many people can blame you with all the allocations/restrictions/typical GM bullkrap, etc. that GM is putting on the Camaro.

I'll think "nice car." What else would I think?

My problem is that I had NO IDEA when to expect my car. None. The dealer had none. So screw it. I found a car with more options, equal power, better warranty.

I will miss OnStar though. I had a nice conversation with the OnStar lady when I called to cancel. I had to assure her that I LOVED the service, but was getting a car that didn't have it. She was so nice!

The Camaro is a 2010 model most of the time we cant touch them until the 3rd quarter...So GM is doing a great job getting them out by May 2009.

Well I hope everyone enjoys their Camaros. I'm sure I'll enjoy the Genesis. Can't wait to actually try the parking sensors! The base 3.8 I test drove didn't have them.

While I can see the OPs point and view, If you really want the camaro, I would wait for it. If it really doesn't matter to you, I don't think you can go wrong with your choice .. it will be a good performer ..

Again though .. if you really want the camaro, I say wait for it. You won't be dissapointed and you won't be wondering what if ...

I can understand your frustration. Hell I come from a die hard GM family and I'm still upset at the jacked up delivery process. I saw a bright yellow genesis at NAIAS and wasn't too impressed. I really can't stand the front end. But I saw one yesterday on the highway from the rear, and I liked it a lot more. You certainly could choose worse cars. I hope it lives up to the quality you expect, and you enjoy it. It might hurt when you start seeing Camaro's around though!

If he has the passion for Chevy like most of us up here, then he's making a big mistake. However, I don't think that is the case. I mean for most of us Chevy and the Camaro is like family and we would never betray family, but for him I really don't think it's like that. Enjoy your new ride. You can always get a Camaro later if you think you screwed up.

coming from someone who canceled his 2SS/RS order because of stupid crap, I honestly think you're making a bad decision to choose something else... but it is your money... good luck with the new car and make sure and post some pics of it

The Genesis seems like a decent car and market competition for the Camaro. I sat in one and wasn't comfortable but I forgot to try adjusting the seat. I may still test drive one at some point.

How about we have a nice respectful conversation about his decision and not about who is a troll or who isn't.

Cut the guy some slack and Stay on topic.

I probalby deleted too many posts here, and if you are offended, feel free to PM me. I got here late and it's hard to tell what posts are good natured and what aren't.

Thanks,

Well you deleted mine...and all I asked is if the car is delivered with a side of Kimchi.

Good luck with the car...you will need it when you are staged next to the guy who picked up your cancelled order.

It's his money -- he can spend it where he wants. People still buy rice-burners and believe it's okay. Some of us have a different opinion.

The biggest problem are the UNREASONABLE EXPECTATIONS of many posters on this site. They KNEW when they ordered in Oct. or whatever, that production didn't start until Feb. --- or later. Then there's 14,000+ sold orders + stock units, etc. It's hard to use a charitable description for some of our posters --- I mean REALLY use your head!!

GM is handling this start-up just great so far. They deserve KUDOS!

I don't agree with you assessment of the situation ("dragging their feet", and so on)...and I sorta have a feeling you wanted this Genesis for a long while, anyways - can't say I see why......but it's your money -- so enjoy.

Getting more respect is a lame reason to buy a car, IMO...I get respect (or don't) because of my actions, not my car. If we were talking about a rusty beat-up piece of crap (or a ricer), that's something to avoid because of the disrespect you'll get, but the Camaro and Genesis are both shiny new cars.

...and FWIW there's still enough people out there holding on to the Camaro mullet stereotype that the respect is probably equal, when you consider the respect that the Genesis will gather from the import tuner market.

Choose the Camaro because it's a great car, not because others will think you drive a great car. It's almost certainly great enough for that, right?
