Does seeing cancelled orders make you mad?

okay, this is not intended to fluster anyone who HAD to back out of their deal due to financial reasons, or job loss, etc.

there seems to be more and more posts and some stories from dealers, that the early orders they are begining to get into the showrooms are being backed out on for silly reasons. things like dealers prepping the Camaro without the owner knowing, or they just simply decide the Mustang's a better deal...........so that raises the question:

does it piss you off to see all of these orders getting backed out on for no good reason?

what if you ordered at one of these dealers and were the order AFTER this one?

when i hear of these back outs, i think of all you Oct orders still at 1100.

I don't care what other people do with their money. It's their business and they can do what they please, and if that pisses you off I think you may have anger management issues.

the way I look at it is if they cancelling, to bad for them. they are missing out. If they want to go for the rustang more power to them, ill lose them in the mix with the other 140k a year rustangs produced

A lot of people are telling their dealers they dont want it prepped other than the PDI and that they want to be there for the PDI. If I told my dealer that and they prepped it anyway and/or did the PDI without me there it means hes not listening to what I'm telling him. I'll be d***ed if I'm going to give him or his dealership a paycheck for ignoring what I want.

This doesn't just apply for this car, this applies for any car. If I ask them to do something and they say they are going to do it but don't. I will walk away and find someone that can actually pay attention.

It's frustrating...although I do understand the situations of some...

I guess what I'm trying to say is it's disappointing to see people back out of something they've waited so long for. Everyone has their own reasons, and whether I think they're justified or not doesn't matter.

I don't pay 30k+ for a can of soup. I'm not going to give someone 30k+ for not paying attention to what I ask for.

doesn't bother me. . . If GM stops production when and if they file for bankruptcy then I am out. . . I've waited long enough. . . If this happens theres a Solstice GXP at the dealership I'll pick up.

Why does it matter what other people do? Everyone has their reasons for backing out. If you're seriously getting mad about someone else cancelling a car entirelly different from yours then you've got a problem buddy. The only Camaro that matters right now is mine and that's all I care about. Who cares if someone cancels theirs? It's none of my business.

I understand your point but some of the people don't want the dealer too prep the car, So that it can be sold on E-bay, i do not want the plastic removed from my car so i can do it at home, I will pic up the car and trailer it home and wash and wax it for the first time at home, And than put the 3m clear bra on the car, in my life i have got a lot of new cars, only 1 i did not do this with and that car had to get a new seat, that got a cut in it from a guy that cut the seat by removing the plastic on the seat, so if the dealer dos not do what i want i will pass on the car, It is my money..

at the third.

It's totally irrelevant and making a POLL? That is funny. My next poll is, are you pissed off at all the Camaro5 clowns making polls?

I didn't pre-order, so I'm hoping a lot more people back out on their orders. The more people backing out on their orders, the better the odds of me finding a perfectly equiped car.

its only frustrating because if they are waiting till after their order goes in they are basically keep everyone else that pre-ordered from bumping up a spot. i had that at my dealership the guy canceled the car on Wednesday the day AFTER his order went in. so instead of everyone going up a spot (making everyone happy) his car is still going to come in, the dealer is now going to have to find someone else to buy the car while the rest of us continue to wait.

so yes it does piss me off.

I wish more people would cancel, because I'm somewhat impatient waiting for my own to get built and would love to find an identical one sitting as inventory for me to buy today.

No it doesn't piss me off people cancel their orders. If GM can't make a buyer happy then GM can continue to lose customers until they go out of business.

I can always just rent a camaro from AVIS since apparently GM likes them better than the 20,000 people who still don't have the cars they purchased months ago. Then, if you like the AVIS car, you can buy one off Ebay from a greedy dealer.
