GM messed up

I just have to say gm messed up. They delayed pretty much all v6 preorders and most v8 orders so they could have 1 v6 in dealerships by may. Well guess what 90% don't even have there v6 car. The ones that did has already sold there cars. So the point was to let people be able to see the car and want to order one right? Well now my v6 order is at 3000 and hasn't moved since april 30th... Why? I am sure all the v6's made earlier has something to do with my delay. What do you think??

Dude seriously its going to take some time. Everyone said from the beginning its going to be bruttle getting this car the first year as its a controlled ramp up. There are only at vin 10k with tons of dealers getting one on there show room plus the pre-orders its going to suck until at least vin 30k. Building a car isnt like fast food. I work at a automotive plant its super slow for at least 6 months from sop till they hit full production.

Oh for crying out loud. Someone please shut this thread down. Enough of the whining!

Goodness sakes.

I am sorry. But we have been repeatedly told that the preorders should be finished by the Third Quarter of this year. This was known from early on.

How many times are we going to have to repeat, repeat, repeat!!!

bash me if you want i was just simply saying it was pointless in doing the 1 per dealer v6 car because i have not found one dealer that has kept the car for showing on the showroom floor. thats all i was saying.

If the dealer has the car on the showroom floor and someone wants to buy it, what should we do? If we say no, then they come here and bash us because "the dealer doesn't want my money!".

I think that if 15,000 people pre-ordered Camaro's without sitting in one, I guess the process works.

I agree with ya the car is awesome and lots of people want one. So what was the purpose of giving all the dealers a show car for the unveiling when there never was a true unveiling. They should have just said there giving all dealers one car before they start filling preorders.

We got our first ordered car on a Wednesday and wrote 5 new orders the same day. Then we got our stock unit and wrote 4 more that day as a result.

That's why dealers got those cars.

Some people will snooze and those people will lose. The ready buyers came and saw the car and ordered immediately.

We are all in the same boat. This doesn't help us V8's either. I think alot of us are sick of the bash GM. We will get our cars when they get here. I won't bash GM. I believe it will be worth the wait.
