Relax, man. Only a thousand (+/-) have been shipped. Most of them are all on these forums.

You shouldn't have paid over sticker, we have a thread on the forums for people honoring discounts and things.

My car is still at Oshawa and its VIN 2175. I really think everyone should just relax.

Cheer up, dude!

You haven't received your car yet...

You haven't signed on the dotted line... or did you?

Everything is negotiable

If they put up a fight, tell them "Charging me extra wouldn't be the best if you don't want me to back out of this deal."

Use Camaro5 to your advantage. Print out a bunch of material on pricing people are getting on these forums.

I went in to the dealer with a list of other dealers within a 25 mile radius that were charging MSRP.

...don't have my ride yet either. But I'm not upset that there are a ton of them going to rental companies. AVIS is a customer just like the rest of us - - only with a lot more money to throw around.

I called the Avis 800 number with no luck. They gave me the direct number in Atlanta, so I called and sure enough they have (1) 2010 Camaro for rent. However, you have to reserve that category of car and can only get it if it's there when you arrive. There are other cars in that category (according to them) that you might get instead. So, in a nutshell they will not let you reserve the Camaro!!!!!!! Damn, I can't wait to drive one........

Nice, good info. Can't wait to get behind the wheel of that beast! I'll call the 800 number in a week or so hopefully they'll get some around here.

ONE car available in the city of ATL, so much for that idea of renting one, you might as well buy a lottery ticket. I hope this makes those who preordered feel better, if GM was ignoring customers for the sake of producing rental fleets then there would be more cars available than this.

it seems really strange that GM would push the V6 model so hard and then deliver V8 models to the rental car companies knowing that this is the "enthusiast" car... probably not the best decision on GM's part

I dunno, I think it was a good choice. Then again, this might just be with Avis. Maybe other companies will only order the V6. I was surprised when I saw that Avis had an SS. I usually only see the cheapest model of a car at rental places...

I don't see the big deal. I would absolutely love to have a new camaro but in no way can I afford it. Renting the ss will let me live the dream for a day or so. I'm all for it. But none available in Indy...

I'm sure they have several cars on order, especially since it is featured on their site already. Don't get me wrong if I had one on order I would be envious of everyone that got one before me.. well I am anyways even though I don't. But Avis is a customer just like everyone else, they had to order cars just like everyone else, they have apparently received at least one if not a few. Several members here have already received their cars as well. Not sure what the big deal is. It's not like they called GM directly last week and they shipped them direct. No doubt the rental company has been waiting for the vehicle just as long as everyone else. If anyone is to be pointed blame (and I'm not saying their is any reason to) it would be the dealer that delivered it, assuming that there is some sort of favoritism being given (though no one knows there was).

I personally work in the automotive after market industry, and if that sale helped keep one more Chevy dealership afloat I could really care less who it went to. No doubt the car dealerships are trying to do whatever they can to keep alive. We have lost several large dealers here lately, and I have several personal friends as well as hundreds of other people out of work because of it. Don't worry though, I have several friends that worked at Ford dealerships that have been laid off too

On a side note if anyone figures out where it is renting out of let me know!

they could have already had a contract with GM saying that they will get X number of camaros before X date. and if that was signed before 10/13, then they order before any of use had a chance
Or, what if they ordered 10/13, at 8:00 a.m.?

just thought id throw that out there
Yeah...but per car...GM loses money...Think about it

Ok...While i know that I am going to have some people reply and state that its a "Test Car" for potential camaro buyers...this logic is flawed....because

First...The 2010 Camaro orders are done....most dealers if not all have all allocation sold and anyone getting anxious is going to have to wait until late 2009 or early 2010 to order a 2011 model...SO...GM gave renters a car that is going to sample a 2010 camaro and not the next model year...and congress is being a big meanie and i can't see performance cars being around much longer...even the stang...So if you decided you want to buy a camaro right now...you have to wait until next model year (Unless you are grandma who walks into your dealer and ninja buy a showroom car...cheater)

Second...GM would have made MUCH more money if they had given the allocations to sold-out dealers instead of AVIS or any other rental company

Third...Priorities?...Yes i know that GM is a business...and business doesn't always make us happy...but damn...I have been waiting forever...and I know that AVIS is not going to even do half of the advertising that WE the loyal customers would do by taking it local shows, talking about it, modding it, driving it daily. AVIS has not even advertised anything about the camaro...yet again WE the loyal customer...post pictures and videos the minute we return from the dealer with our delivered car and would rant and rave all day long if we could. And yet...GM has put me last on the list to recieve mine...and I KNOW that AVIS did not pay MSRP for thier cars.

If you want to test drive a camaro...go to a dealer...its free

(But I am still going to AVIS to rent one...LOL)

couldn't find one here in raleigh, but miami international airport has one. It looks like it is booked up for the next couple of weeks. I had to go one month in advance just to get a reservation on one. it is 159 bucks a day before all the BS tax and surcharges. So you are looking at 200 bucks before adding insurance..

I just returned from Atlanta this afternoon. For at least the last three weeks, they had around ten Camaros for rent. I saw one silver SS this morning the rest were V6. Colors I saw were yellow, silver and the orange (inferno?). I also couldnt find anything on their website but was told to request one the next time I arrive. I'm planning to rent one this Saturday, hopefully the SS.
