Want a 1LE

Hello everyone, this is my first post to C5. I have 100% made up my mind that I want my next car to be a 1LE, 2ss or 1ss doesn't matter really because I would like the recaro seat option. My only problem currently is that my stipulation is it being my only payment, as I am very tired of having 2 car payments. Wife's car will be paid off in late march or april of 2015, my wonder is will I be able to find a 1LE at that point that is still new? I will be trading my current car (2013 Hyundai) in on it, and I have my financing already lined up through my credit union. What would be my options at that point? Thanks all, this is a great forum to have been browsing for the past year

My only real MUSTS on the car is NPP, and no sunroof. Id like white, but ill take pretty much anything as long as it has the exhaust and no roof. The recaros would be cool but im a girthy fella and I have yet to sit in them to know if I fit or not.

Agreed, new model year won't start until June/July of 2015. They will stop taking new orders for 2015 sometime in April. You could order one in March in time for a May delivery.

They are hard to find with a search. For some reason most of the local SS's near me say they have the "SS Performance" package, when in fact they don't. It gets even harder when they don't post an actual photo of the car and they use a generic file photo.

I ordered mine as I wanted it and wanted no regrets...and I have NO REGRETS!

2ss/RS/1LE, NPP, Nav, sunroof, Racaro, red rock metallic.

I think those without a roof just did not want to spend the money and have sunroof envy! These interiors are so tight and dark...you just can't beat the natural light and air movement! Mine is always open! And for head room...I am 6'2" and have no issues! The seat does adjust, so lower it and tilt it back and you are fine. Maybe there is less head room with standard seats vs the Racaro seats? Don't know.

Try cars.com and put '1LE Performance' as keyword with 'match all'. Some irrelevant craps will show up as well, but you can also find several 1LEs across the whole country from the 'smart' dealers. The dumb ones won't show up on your search, but screw them for the laziness of their dealers!

As many salesmen and dealers have no idea what the "1LE" even is, it's not really a matter of laziness.

You can have any of your local dealers search for the exact car and options that you want. Having said that, there is no reason to even worry about searching for anything until the month (maybe two) before you plan to purchase.

LOL - yep. But imagine how idiotic it is to skip 1LE in the description (and put typical BS like AC, V8 - lmao) after spending quite a bit of time on adding pictures (to cars.com) of a car with a damn matte hood wrap, black wheels, and red calipers!

I find that cars.com will give you the most hits (for a nationwide search - you have to select "all miles") over autotrader.com or Edmunds.com, but I would still utilize all three for searching because they don't all track vehicles the same. I find that if you include "SS performance" in the keywords to include, you will have results that way too.

Oh, and I prefer utilizing their "advanced search" feature, you can vary your search based on your specific criteria a little quicker.

And again, they have no clue why those options are even on the car.

I had two salesmen checking out my car during my last service. They both were commenting on all of the "accessories" that I "added". Everything they were pointing out (minus the tinted windows and including everything you noted above) are part of the "1LE" package. They just don't know.

First, great choice in the 1LE I got my 1SS/1LE/NPP/Recaros June 2nd 2014 after ordering it April 15th. Prior to that, every day for 5 months or so I checked cars.com, autotrader, ebay, and searched for Chevrolet dealerships within a few hundred mile radius of my hometown. And don't forget about Becky from Rodgers Chevrolet, she usually gets a fair amount of 1LEs.

Ultimately, I just got very lucky in that my local Chevrolet dealer received an allocation for a 1LE, and my salesman from a prior Chevrolet Traverse purchase knew I was hot to trot on a 1LE, especially a 1SS with the above options. I was not going to buy one unless it was EXACTLY how I wanted, and my patience paid off.

The other posters are leading you in the right direction with how to search for one. I usually did the advanced search first and you can narrow it down to 8 cylinder, manual trans, etc. But I noticed too that some dealerships had the 1LEs listed as auto trans ( I noticed this too on Rodger's website on one particular 1LE) so after you feel like you have exhausted all avenues, look outside the box and look some more. As mentioned, do a search all with no specific criteria, but be prepared to sort through lots of cars

Jack Schmitt in Ofallon, IL

I went into the dealer to order, and this one was already enroute to the dealer. So I took this one.
