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.

None of my business, everyone has to decide what's best for them and their families. Hell! some of us may not have a job tomorrow.

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..
