3 camaros per dealership a month?

Wasn't sure where to put this but considering mine will take exceptionally long to get here because of this little fact after I ordered it I figured this was the spot.

So seriously what the hell? Why are they limiting three camaros per dealership per month? I ordered mine and the dealership I'd probably have to wait until December before I would actually get it although my dealer did tell me that they might be changing it so they can order as many as they want. Does anyone have any info on this?

Sounds like more misinformation to me. Think about it. It does not make any sense.

Each dealership gets a certain allocation. It isn't a static number. Your dealership may well be getting 3 this month as well as next and previous months. Another may be getting 10 per month and others 0 per month (only 1 here or there).

Ya, my dealer said that everyone gets 2 per month and I just blew it off because I allready knew the real deal. Don't listen to that.

allocations/build are determined monthly by that dealers sales and something to do with Mustang sales i heard.

my dealer got 4 in April, but only gets 2 in May. so i ordered another last week from a dealer who claims they got 26. guess what................that order was pulled yesterday by GM. my original order from 4/11 isn't scheduled to be pulled til' mid June at the earliest.

Yeah see our dealership only has one because their first got pulled back to GM or something but the only one they have is on display and can't be sold. Its quite annoying considering I've been waiting forever for it to come out and now I have to wait eight more months because of our dealerships allocation? They had fifty camaros on order so far, mine being number thirty, so why would they do that if the demand is high? I mean they want to make money right so why not just order the damn things lol

I overheard my salesperson say they would be getting twelve Camaros between now and the end of the year. These were not going to be pre-orders, but lot cars for sale. He then turned to me ands asked for a delivery timeframe if a person wanted to order two weeks ago.

I am not sure if what he is saying is wrong. Maybe it just was not explained properly.

Each dealership does have an allocation number of cars they can order. I was told that too. Hopefully they will open up the ordering process and not limit the number of camaro's a dealer can order in the near future. I ordered mine on 04/27/09 and I was told I wont get it until at least Sept.

can't be right

If 3 a month is true I should probably wait and get a 2012 model.

But has anyone heard of them opening it to where the dealerships can order as many as they want or no?

NO! It's going to be quite a while before there's open allocations all over the place.

it's not necessarily a matter of just YOUR dealer only being able to order 3 a month. GM has a few thousand dealerships. Just about every one of those dealerships has a list of people that are trying to order the Camaro. They have to ration out the # of cars that are able to be built between all of them.
Otherwise, you will demand your dealership order your car along with the other 1 or 5 or 25 that are on his list... My dealership would demand that all of his orders be built... The other guy's dealership should have his order built along with the other 8 people that ordered before him at that dealership. So there has to be a system to allow each dealership to be able to get orders filled, based on how many can be built.

Well I'm just saying I don't think it makes sense especially since they have like three factories shut down and if they kept those open then one there'd be more jobs and two there'd be more camaros out quicker and I would definently like the later obviously lol.

My dealer told me they get 2 a week, I am number 8 on the list now, so they said August for delivery.
