2011 2SS Black: What's a Good Price?

Hello, I'm new to the site and I must say its a great site, but I'm kinda lost.
I currently own a 2001 Camaro and I've been looking for a few weeks so far for a 2011 2SS in the Louisville, KY area and I have not found any for the prices I see that people on here have gotten. I'm seeing prices here for around $33,000 for one with about 5000 miles on it.
Is this a good deal? I'm completely lost on this sort of things because I've never owned a new car. Any help would greatly appriciated. Any advice or anything. I'm excited to own a 5th gen camaro but dont wanna get burned.

Look on the for sale section on here and you can get as good or better of a deal. If you are trading and need to go through a dealership then by all means find one you like, get the particulars and run it by the folks here. 33K seems about avg for a well optioned 2ss. Not a smokin deal but not awful. Alot will depend on any other fees they try to tack on and trade in value. If they give you $2500 for your trade when its really worth $10k then they can mark the price down alot further on the one they are selling you so watch for that. With all the research tools and advice available on the internet there is no reason anyone should get reamed at the dealer but it happens every day. Thats because people get emotional about a car purchase and get in a hurry. Dont get in a hurry, do research and take your time.

At first I read this as a 2012 but your interested a 2011. I got my 2011 2SS Vert for 9k off sticker. I don't see why you couldn't do the same or better

I bought my 2011 2SS RS for 31,200 + tax. It has 215 miles on it. I think you could do better than the price they listed.

First go to a web site like www.cars.com or other and build a car. It will give you the invoice and msrp price. Do a print out and study it. Go to www.chevrolet.com and locate dealers near you. They will have websites for each dealer. Check to see if they have anything in their new inventory that comes close to what you want. It is always easier to negotiate a deal for a car they have on their lot or is in transit to them. Pick a dealer that seems most eager to make a deal. Talk to the sales manager on line. Tell him what your looking for and try to befriend him or her. Set up a time to sit down and talk to him face to face. Take all your information with you and explain what your looking for , including what your willing to pay. Never..never get upset or angry when your negotiating. Remember your just talking and throwing numbers out there. If the right numbers come up , be ready to move with the deal. Be ready with down payment and know what kind of financing is available to you. If the numbers are not right , be ready to walk , saying i have to think about this , i will talk to you latter. Never buy on a impulse. I have bought many new vehicles in my life and always did my homework before buying. Not one time did the sales person know more about the vehicle i was buying.

If its a loaner/demo car offer them the used trade in value of the car. It's fair for the fact that it's 2 years old and needs to go

First off, thanks for all this great advice. I'm not going to rush into anything. The longer I wait, the more money I'll have saved for a down payment. I currently have a 2001 Camaro with 150,xxx miles on it. I've looked at dealer websites here and that was the price that I previously stated for the ideal Camaro I want. I always do lots and lots of homework on anything I buy, and every bit helps, especially from you guys. I'm going to keep and open mind for whatever deals may come up, I just need any advice that will help in this search. Thanks again for the help!

I was thinking of that mindset with buying a 2011. Hoping that it would be even that much more cheaper. I'm going to have to look into the price difference between the two and base a decision there. What do you think the difference in price would be? I'm aiming for possibly January or February 2013 to make the purchase. Like I said, I have no problem waiting and want to do all the homework for it first.

By the beginning of the year I would imagine it be 5k off sticker with 1.9% through GM. Middle of the year your looking at 7-10k off sticker. If you want an 11 now just have it shipped for 1.5k or pick it up yourself. They probably won't get any cheaper now. At the moment Classic Chevrolet in Grapvine has an 11 SS for 31k. I bet dealers would negotiate shipping if they really needed the car out of the lot.

I agree that you may be able to get a new 11 for the price you are talking. I picked up a 11 Vert 1ss with almost all 2SS options for almost $9k off of $41+K sticker. Also got zero GM interest for 60 months. Remind dealer car is now 2 years old (13's are out) and should be priced as such. Buy outright or talk trade after price is agreed upon for new car. Remember on trade that if you are buying at a great price you will not get great price on trade. Try and sell trade yourself if you can.

I've never thought of doing that, and it's a great idea! thanks! I've been looking at the websites for Louisville dealers and havent found anything close but the one that I previously stated. But I may have to start expanding my buying area by a few cities as well.

When did you buy your Camaro? and how do you get the zero interest for 60 months from GM? sorry if thats a dumb question, still new at all this. Also, I'm more looking into a used, certidied used 2011 2SS.

I purchased on the last day of May and believe GM had a promo during May for zero interest for 60 months. Also the car was new put did have about 500 miles. Dealer detailed car to perfect condition. Again all I am saying is you may be able to get a great deal on an 11and save on interest rate as new car rates are always lower than used. Good luck, you will love the car when you find the right one.

It's highly unlikely that there'll be 0% for 11's again. So I ended up taking my 4.5 rate with my frequent credit checks against me. Go to cars.com and find one within reasonable driving distance.

Yeah, 0% sounds awesome, I'm going to have to look into that. 0% is a deal in itself. I'll still look around for some deals on interest rates for a new 2011 and maybe now possibly a used 2012, (because it'll be early 2013 when I'm going to buy). Again, thanks for the help, much appreciated.

So do you think they may offer 0% on a 2012 by the time I end up buying?

Most likely. GM sales are low enough for them to encourage a purchase. This Labor Day they'll probably have the 2012's at 2,500 off or at 0% Apr. Some dealers can combine the offers but most don't. Im sure that next year they'll be offering a significant discount plus a good financing option. One more thing never buy used. If you buy used your only going to save around 2k and end up with a higher interest rate

So I need to buy a NEW 2011 and I'll get the best price AND interest rate? Any idea on any deals by GM at the beginning of 2013?

I just bought my 2010 2SS/RS with 5900 miles on it and every option except sunroof for $29,900 at a dealer.

Also, if you're eligible, you should join PenFed (www.penfed.org), they're currently offering 1.49% on all new/used cars up to 60 months.

If you can find a hardtop SS offer the max KBB trade value.

Blue if you could have done some Traveling I'm positive you could have gotten a new 11 for 30k. Then again some listings on cars.com seem to old. So there may not be that many

I must be doing something wrong then because I'm on cars.com and its only showing 4 new 2011 camaro 2ss within 250 miles of where I'm at (Louisville), and the cheapest of those are like 40 grand.

look up Byers Downtown Chevrolet and look for the 1SS 11 Camaro. Offer them 30k for it because it's a 2 yearold model and the fact it almost has 1000k miles on it.

I agree this could be a good car to take a shot at. I would check out the sticker as it seems high for a 1SS non RS. It looks like a manual with no stripes, stock rims, stock stereo. Not sure but MSRP seem high at almost 41k. If you like the car the dealer needs for it to go. As said above 2 years old with 1k miles you should be able to get a great deal of 20% plus off of sticker. Be firm but also make sure they know you are serious and are redy to buy.
