Get the order in before the May 6th "launch" and you shouldn't have lost too much time.

Congrats on your order!

I would think that the amount of orders place in these three weeks in April were fairly few in comparison to the total amount already ordered or being produced on a daily basis now so not much time was lost. That would be the good news. The bad news is that many of us that placed our orders back in October have our orders sitting right next to the one that you just placed still at 1100. So take it easy, have a beer and kick back until sometime this summer.....or so.

No disrespect to the OP. I would hope most people would put their family/people before a car.

That sucks that it happened,but given the date you ordered i dont think it's gonna make that much of a difference.

Is Turnersville still charging $2500 over MSRP? They were my first choice dealer to preorder through, but they said it would be $2500 over MSRP so I eMailed them my disappointment in them and found another dealer selling at MSRP.

Aside from that I've had two good dealings with them (02 Camaro and 08 Equinox).

I know you have a long wait ahead of you. I put my order in on 4/21 and have found serenity since that day. It will all work out for the best. Things happen for a reason.

"Smells like typical New Jersey Orc mischief to me..."

Definitely ask for compensation of some kind. It should be something worthwhile and not a stupid free mousepad. Free gas for a year should be adequate.
If the salesman had problems? Ok, fine, no problem there, but he or the dealership needs to be prepared to compensate you for YOUR inconvenience. I'm certain he wasn't the only person that was capable of processing your order. It is only fair. A launch like this is too big to lose much time on, especially with this kind of car.

I am going there Sat afternoon to re-do the order and I will ask them again, depending on there answer maybe I will just go to Kerbeck in A/C and buy a Vette, Lord knows Turnersville cant even match their prices on Vettes.

Going to be tough all around. South Jersey isn't going to be a staging point for this car I'm afraid. Might want to try up north in Bergen County. Paramus Auto Mall or Hawthorne Chevrolet. Even surrounding dealerships like Schumacher already has 2 cars with VINS and is likely already being shipped. Wish I had some more advice for you man. Sorry.

This just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. If you went to the dealer. Placed your order..(with deposit i assume) How can they not place your order? Smells a lil fishy to me possible they could have bumped you to sell the spot to someone else... But hopefully this didn't happen. I just have a hard time trusting people

I was told on 4/1 that they were posting additional customer orders and hoping GM would pick them up and if that happened I would be required to write $1000 check. On 4/1 I was 9th on their 2nd list.
