Marking Up

Spoke to a dealer in Kentucky about a convertible only to find out they were marking it up 10k over MSRP. Manager said he would lower price on the other two, but not the vert. One would think that if you gave 3 Zl1's in stock perhaps the attempt to rape the customer is not working. Will someone actually pay 10k over MSRP?

I sincerely hope not. If they can get away with it then it might encourage other dealers to set their markups even higher.

There is a black one, with the polished Rims in Jacksonville North Carolina for MSRP.

...I hope not, there's one that's been sitting here at Superior Chevy in Lawrencevile NJ for some time, victory red with black ten spoke wheels. The dealership is in the middle of being sold. Possibly one could make a deal to get the car a MSRP or better.

10k is a little excessive on the vert. Here in Houston there are still some dealers at 15k over. And they wonder why they still have 2012's. I'm getting a white vert automatic in today. You're in Kentucky and I'm in Texas but I will save you thousands. Call me if you're interested. Ryan @ (832)703-4366

Understand that allocations on the Verts are still in very short supply. The dealer I bought mine from was only allowed a single Vert allocation to cover from June to December of this year.

We'll have to wait until after the first of the year to see the next round of allocations for the Verts.

Knowing this, I'm not surprised that dealers would try to charge a premimum for any Verts they happen to have for sale.

There are plenty out there for MSRP. You just have to find them. There is an Ashen Gray Vert on Ebay right now. Apple Chevrolet, in York, PA, has a Red one for sticker too (black wheels, CF insert, 6 speed, MyLink).

when 5ths 1rst rolled out, mark-ups were the norm. Local dealer sold an LT/RS for $15k over MSRP. Really tempting back then, gotta be 1rst few to have it..

Don't pay over sticker, it is crazy. Search around on Autotrader or Cars .Com for what you are looking for and make calls. You will get what you want without paying over sticker.

I paid sticker and I got one of the first ones available, so there is no reason you should be paying a premium for a 2013. Granted I had to buy from Arkansas and I live in Cali, but after 21 phone calls, I found an allocation at sticker just takes a little effort on the buyers part.

Paid sticker for my 2013 VERT but dealer initially wanted 10K over sticker. I spoke loudly enuf that all in show room.heard me as I headed for the door. We finally agreed on sticker-cash deal. Very happy with dealer sales/service after the sale

One thing people tend to forget is that its the dealers decision and right to mark them up if the want too, If you don't like it find another dealer. Pretty simple if you ask me

I have not met anybody yet who has paid that kind of markup. I have had dealers tell me people were but then had the same dealer call me back later and offer me the same car at MSRP ha ha. what happened to the line of people willing to pay 10k over?

To some people 10k is nothing. to me it is just a principle thing. I could have paid 65k for a car but why? I would rather spend a few days shopping and save 10k.

then again shipping a car to me is not big deal ~800 open ~1300-1500 enclosed. I will buy a car from florida if it is 10k cheaper and ship it. on a direct order courtesy deliver cost me $250.

some people just want to walk into the closest dealer and buy. they may only have one alocation or something and to those people sometimes they believe that paying 10k over is the only option.

I ordered from the same dealer 69NMYSS in 2012 for MSRP. when i got pushed to 2013 I used the availibility of the 2013GT500 to force them down to supplier price if they would not have I would be driving a GT500 right now.

the market does dictates the price but the market to me is the whole US not just 50 miles from my house. I think I could find a ver allocation@msrp in 1days on the interent.

I have had about 7 dealers swear to me that this was market price for the car though but I think they are smoking crack. then again maybe poeple do pay it.

According to edmunds.com True Market Value for a 2013 ZL1 Camaro in my area (defined as all Chevy dealers within 100 miles of my zip code) is $1,000 over MSRP. They define True Market Value as the average price paid, so that could equal one customer paying $5K over sticker and four others paying MSRP.
