Canceling 10/08 order

I was the first order from my dealer on the first possible day. As of today still don't have car and nobody can seem to find vehicle. It was made on 4/04 and went to quality control. Dealer can't find out why and I've called GM and they don't seem to know anything. Dealer has received vehicles ordered after mine and is as frustrated as I am. Must be something seriously wrong with it and I no longer want it. (2SS, RS, SIM with CG stripes). Have always drive vets, but wanted one of the first Cameros. Fun is now out of it with so many being delivered. No wonder GM is taking BK. Don't even know now if I want another Vet. Just bought a 2010 Lexus RX350 and thing I may get the New IS conv. This experience has been very disappointing.

By the way, this is the first time I've posted, but have been listening with interest to all of your discussions from the beginning. Learned way more about the Camero from this forum then any where else. Thanks to everyone.

This sounds like our story. My son's car (VIN 4486) was built 4/21 and a VIN assigned on 4/22. Since then when we look in the dealers system all we see are NUMEROUR Intermediate In-Transit and Bayed entries. Something like 10 of each.

He's been calling his District Manager for weeks only being told the car is in Canada or Michigan or in transit or we'll call you when it's shipped.

The latest story from the District Manager is that about a week ago it was in Michigan waiting to be shipped via rail to the delivery/holding area in Wentzville Mo (about 50 miles from my dealer). But as of yesterday only SLIENCE.

This is ridicules.

Um... I dont think the IS convertible is going to be a suitable replacement for a 2SS... nice car? YES! But... not a Camaro with 426hp. My advice would be to reorder now. You'll get it in 6 to 8 weeks tops, so long as the dealer you order from has allocations.

I'm sorry it happened like this for you. I certainly don't blame you for feeling like you do. Enjoy whatever you end up with.

Honestly, given the circumstances you described, I would do the same thing.

It's a sad story. Based on what I've read on here, maybe the stripes are what is holding your car up.

Patience of Job is needed, especially for the early order R6P cars.

I would hope you would want the car to be "Right" when you get it and not messed up.

I hear you .. I am in about the same situation and am about to jump ship as well. As long as some of these cars are in QC, you have to wonder how much is wrong with them and do you really even want the car after it comes out of QC.

Wait, so when you drive Vets, do you mean war vets or veterinarians? Is that like a charity thing, driving around war vets that can't drive anymore? That is nice of you, but I don't know how comfortable they would be riding around in the back of your Camero anyways.
And don't take them to BK, maybe a nice trip to Olive Garden or something.

I order my car on 10/23/08 built with vin 102258 and still no car, GM tells us it is in quality control since 4//3/09. Rumor from another local dealer that their were a train wreck and over 50 camaros was destroyed. My luck my car was one of those.

I ordered my car on Feb. 23rd and it's supposed to be here on Monday. If it gets here on Tuesday I'll be pissed, and if it's Wed. I'm canceling.

I know you're being facetious, but what if you ordered it in February, it's supposed to be here Monday and we get to September and no one can tell you where it is? (7 months)

I can see the OP's point.

Don't know for sure on this one. I ordered April 10th from a dealer and I was 7 out of 11 allocations they had for the Camaro at that time. Had my order number checked today still at 1100, and its been 50 Days since the order was placed. My dealer was thinking 60-90 days when I ordered. Don't think we are going to hit that estimate.

Oh, believe me. I get it. I would be mad as hell. I wouldn't cancel the order though.

I feel for you. Suggest you take a couple of days to think about it before you cancel, its going to show up any day now. All is well and you have plenty of company here to share the misery. Mines in transit as well and I have no idea when its going to show but IMO, this is nothing compared to when they delayed production for a month back in Feb.
