Thumbs down My dealer went under!

Got a phone call from my dealer yesterday good news first. I received 100% refund for my $1000.00 deposit and possibly found another dealer to pick up the allocation will know more in the next few weeks. The new dealer said he will honor the contract we had with are old dealer. The owner of the dealership was cool enough to get all this set up for us before he call with the bad news and have a plan in place I just hope it works.

Bad news we where sitting #1 now I not sure where we are at. My wife and had talked about the possibility of this happening, but crap this sucks. No guarantees of anything at this point. :(:(:(

This is the second GM dealer to go under this week in WA. Has anyone else had this poor misfortune. I think I'm going to be sick

Thanks, the dealership had been family owned for ever and now the only dealerships left in the area is Toyota and Dodge, both the Ford and GM are gone.

There's at least one dealership for every brand here in the Olympia area, but when we ordered in Oct. 08 the local Chev. dealer was jacking us around and I found someone who was willing to talk with us, had no pre-orders yet, and was only 20 min drive south. Now looks like about hour an half north to get are car. Most dealer in the Olympia area seem to want to sell cars, but the customer service is very poor at best (several past experiences). So I look for the complete package and know seems I left in limbo.

The Lincoln Mercury dealer in West Palm Beach shut its doors yesterday...

Should there be a thread for all the dealers closing their doors?

Something similar happened to me. I ordered at Weir Canyon Chevrolet, which is owned by the same people as Selman Chevrolet(here in So.Cal.) Weir had to close, but not because of the economy but because their building was damaged structurally in an earthquake a few months ago. They would have had to close bad economy or good. Weir's orders were put below Selmans orders putting me instead of #7 down to #18.

Kinda sucks :(

Just heard from the new dealer who is going to be taking my new/old order he confirmed I am sitting #3 on his list, but they said their not sure that he will be getting a third Camaro and like the last time they really didn't have a lot of details and I'm having to do the education piece all over again. Gave them Camaro5 to reference and hope they uses it well. I'm about on the edge of saying forget it and looking of used Z06, but I need to get the deposit up to him in the next few days so give me another day to decide. Just don't know if I want to put $ down on a maybe. I sure it will be refundable and will be sure to work that out when I head up.

Go Talk to friendly chevrolet in Puyallup on river road, Tell them that one of the PNWCC members shipped ya.

If nothing else talk to the owner Rick Anderson.

Then Try Teamlynn I have talked to him several times on line & hes seems kewl ( i have yet to met him in person). Then Try Baydos if they try chit with them Talk to Jim steel or Rodger smith & tell them Tammy Ivey of the Camaro club shipped ya. lol They are scared of me lol.


For those guys asking how many dealerships we have in this area We have several but one by one the smaller ones are dying quickly being bought up by other manufactor cars or just used lots.

I have delt with Titus will Chev in Olympia over the years but know not to trust them with the cars, Baydos I do trust since they are 7 miles from my house. I can easly go down & do some butt kicking if I have to.

That's a shame that your dealer went under. Hopefully, you don't drop down the list and your other dealer lives up to his word.

Talk to Friendly and Teamlyn they have filled all their orders. Titus just off principle (they wanted to put a second sticker) I said no . Koenig is who our new dealer is their in Port Angeles, but don't know a lot about them. They have been very great to work with and Jack at Gootee said they would honor are deal though them and they have all are order info and #, so this should saves me some time. Sitting #3 so that's a great positive vs 10 or 15

Thanks, I can't begin to explain how stressed I have been over past few days (work & this). Just bumped two from position one to three so that's not that bad might just have a longer wait before we get are Camaro.

# 3 isn't bad, maybe by then the ABL will be full length, Hud will be in, T-tops will be on, and the Z/28 will be here.
