Exclamation MARK UP PRICING

I just heard that CA dealers will be marking up Z28 and SS 5K -10K. This F****** SUCKS!!! Guess I'm Waiting until That Goes Away. If anyone hears different please let me know. I will drive to find the best deal. If I hear about some great Camaro Deals hear in SoCal, I will pass them along for everyone. :middlefinger:

Nothing about the Camaro is set in stone, and that includes pricing. If you're stubborn about price, they can't sell you a car above what you're willing to pay. If that means you have to wait a little longer or drive a little farther to a dealer that's willing to work with you, then so be it.

We have a few dedicated threads with information as to what dealers are gouging prices and what dealers have stated that they will sell for MSRP or below. Those threads are there for issues like this. I live in Norcal as do a few others, and I might end up driving 2-3 hours to find a deal for mine. I'm still waiting until it's closer to the release date to find a dealer that will charge MSRP or below. Otherwise, I'm walking in with a suitcase of money handcuffed to my arm and saying "Can we make a deal?"

That's crazy! I know when the all new 06 Si came out there was a lot of hype. Some dealerships took advantage of that by marking them up 5-7k over msrp. You have to shop around. I bought my Si during that hype at $500 under msrp, and oddly enough it was 20 minutes south of that dealership with the markup.

What confuses me is how they know what the Z28 and SS's will be, to already have decided to mark them up. Don't go to that dealer, is my advise. They're bad news if they're already planning on marking up trim levels on a vehicle that doesn't yet exist.

Its not too crazy to me. They can read pricing estimates just as well as we can, and what was said was merely the mark-up as a range, not a final price, and not a percentage markup. It sounds like they are planing to sell them at around 45k for the top model, which (as odd as this may appear) seems like a reasonable figure for a gouge.

It's going to be great to have my grandparents ordering it for me from their dealership. Hopefully I won't have to hassle with any of this mess.

Does this dealership have a web site. And would they like to get a few extra sales by offering MSRP or below? I'm sure we could get at least a few people who would love to do a group buy and order at the same time.

MSRP or not, I can't afford one in 2009 anyway. Probably will be able to afford it in 2011 or 2012, so the markups should be done by then. At launch, I'm sure most dealers will charge markups, especially the V8 models. There may well be some dealerships that stick to MSRP at launch, to try to earn long term loyalty. Look for those if you can, but they will probably be rare. Or you can wait a few years.

Where did you "hear" this information? Read it somewhere? See it on tv? Through a friend?

If this was through a friend, remember, GM sets the price. It's all going to be MSRP. Now, what a dealers does specifically will vary from dealer to dealer. I guarantee you, there will be plenty of dealers ALL OVER THE COUNTRY charging over MSRP. But, I can also guarantee you, there will always be others out there who believe selling at nothing over MSRP.

Now, if this was through news, mag, site, etc, post up the link if you can. I'd like to hear what they have to say. I want to know how they figure all are going to be doing this, marking it up 5k to 10k, how they know there will be an SS AND Z28, etc. Just curious about any other info they might have put up.

I'm a salesmanager at a Honda/Yamaha/Kawasaki dealership. Over the years the manufacturers have come out with "limited edition" or "specialty" bikes that I refused to mark over retail. I just think it's bad buisness practice and creates anamosity toward your dealership from the customers and public. Sure you might make a couple grand more on those marked up items, but at what expense? Possibly losing customers and sales that otherwise would have purchased at your dealership, but now won't because they percieve you as being greedy and a price gouger.

I was just getting ready to ask what the Z28 and SS packages were going to be. Thanks for bringing me back to reality.

It sounds like you are a good businessman. I wish all dealers thought your way.

Smile How I Know

I work for a Chevy dealer in SoCal. Now this is what the word has been in regards to them marking them up. Even though the mark ups bring me more money in commission(which is what my income is based on), I DO NOT AGREE WITH IT. It is absolutely The great news is that I work for a family owned dearlship and so far they said that there will be no mark up.

Unlike the challenger and the GT500, the base v6 and base v8 camaro will be produced in LARGE quantities. So markups wont last long once supply catches up to demand (5-6 months)
