Order Now / Delivered in July?

Morning All, I've been talking to various Toronto area dealers about ordering a Camaro. One dealer told me that if I ordered today I could expect the car in July? Says he has 5 on order, 2 sold and 3 he could change the colors etc.

Does this sound reasonble? If the order process took me into OCt/Nov which some other dealers have claimed I would probably wait it out and order so I would have it next spring.

Thanks in advance

That's why I'm suspicious of this. I'm reading on the forum lots of people ordered, like you, months and months ago and are waiting. . . . .

Is it possible the dealer pre-ordered an allotment of cars way back in Dec(ish) and now he like you are expecting them in July?

Not clear how all this works , but, sounds suspect if others have been waiting for some time.. . . . .

Thanks again.....any insights appreciated.

CaMario, what dealership gave you this information? My concern here is that the 2 sold units might have been his allocation, depending on how big a dealership we are talking about, they may or may not get more allocation before Q3. I'd be very careful cause most threads that I have read, dealers are saying if you order now it could be Oct, Nov or Dec.

Well..
Im consulting with a dealer who hasn't met their allocation yet (room for 2 more for the quarter) and I was told there that if I order now, I may see the car mid August, if this was a normal GM order and everything was runing on time. Now we all know this isn't the case. This is where the dealer warned me that although August would be the target, there is a fear of not actually receiving it until September or worse October.

So.. yeah.
I'm just gonna throw in the towel for this summer and order for April 2010. Unless of course an SS2/RS in Silver Ice with the 6speed LS3 just happens to show up on a lot somewhere unsold.

I may have to follow your lead as painful as it is. To make matters worst, I was at the dealer and test drove an SS. I'll do a write up in another thread but in a word - AWESOME.

I've got to fight my heart and probably skip this summer as well. Too many things up in the air with dealerships closing, production delays. I checked some other dealers and they said Oct/Nov.

Oh well, it's just hard to fathom that a company that's struggling, has probably what could be THE most sought after car ever, and they can't get product to customers with cash in hand ready to buy!!!!! What part of that makes sense? In any other business you would basically get slaughtered.

Take my case for example, and I'm sure there are many others, who may have to take there business elsewhere. Sorry for the rant folks........ and thanks for your advice appreciate it.

Lets not be too harsh. I have been in manufactureing all my life, engineering and design, jet engines to narrow it down. Any time you have a new project it takes time to ramp up. It would be hard for GM to say "CAMAROS for sale", open the doors and you have 30,000 to choose from. You have to get it right first.

I know its painful, I was whining too. Be patient, its a world event to be a part of. Keep calling dealers till you find one that has allocation, you never know.

I ordered may 7 and was told August would have been realistic but this is a new car and there are to many variables and unknowns for him to give me any guarantees on delivery. I'm just hoping to get a month or so in before i have to park it for the winter.

Sounds reasonable. Keep in mind that nobody knows when a dealer will get a car delivered better than that dealer does.

I ordered on May 2nd and was told it should be delivered in 8 weeks. My dealership was allocated for 6 and I was # 6. I've ordered 2 Avalanches from the same sales guy and I feel he is being straight up with me. Although I ordered before finding this website....now I'm not quite as confident but hopefully it's not delayed too much.
I've not seen the car yet (other than online) so I'm looking forward to the first one. Seems strange to order the thing without even touching one....oh well...my wife was driving a 1980 Camaro when I met her so she's pretty keen on the new one. Just gotta stop counting the days (it's gonna be a long summer)

Have a good one!
Kevin

Kevin, trust me. . . . . it's probably better you don't see one cause when you finally get yours it will make it even more awesome! I never saw one until last month (I actually drove out to the GM headquarters in Oshawa and they had one parked - he,he,he). It was amazing.

Spoke with Someone from factory today

I was at my local post office today. When I came out a guy in a new silver camaro pulled up. I got out and started talking to him about the car. Turns out he works at the factory that is turning them out in Oshawa.

I told him about the dealership I am dealing with saying that a delivery date of of 8 weeks is possible. he gave me these facts

There are 25,000 vehicles back ordered.
Factory completes 400 a day (supposed to be 440) 8000 cars a month

The only way 8 weeks would be possible is if the dealership has been alloted a certain number and pre ordered.

dealership called me and said they can order their alloted vehicles in any model or options requested by customer

I'm fairly certain my dealership had the allotment but I'm thinking they would not have pre ordered. I know they entered the order on May 4th so the 8 week delivery seems unlikely. More realistic would seem to be 3 - 4 months and that's with everything else remaining positive (i.e. no bankruptcy and a CAW agreement). It's probably wiser to figure it will be 3 months and if it shows in 8 weeks you get to do the "lotto happy dance"

Hey CaMario,
I'm a little worried about my reaction if I see my first one while driving on the highway...try not to run into the guardrail or hit the ditch

I was told by a salesman at Applewood Chev in Mississauga that if I ordered today I can expect delivery in Aug.

I guess it's a popular car

That's funny, 8 weeks after you order you'll get your camaro. ROFLMAO The only way that will happen is if you pay $5,000 over MSRP. In doing so, you probably took someones Camaro from them. Dealerships all the country are telling people their Camaro isn't in yet and turning around and selling it to someone that's willing to pay $5 K or $10 K over MSRP. I'll admit I ordered late. I was told by the salesman I would have my Camaro in 6 -8 weeks. I was so friggin excited when he said that. He was just doing his job, saying anything to get a sale and the down payment money. Now reality is setting in and I have come to grips with the fact that I won't see my Camaro until September or October.

By the way, I wonder how much money these dealerships make off our down payments. Can we expect the interest on our down payment to be applied to the vehicle when we get it? Just a thought.
