6-8 Week Wait is now 13 Weeks

Before I ordered my Camaro I was told I would have to wait a maximum of 8 weeks. My dealer was very clear with the delivery estimate. Now in week 13 I'm wondering why it hasn't arrived.

Do you have the order #?

If you do, ask Becky at this thread to check on the car for you:

I've been receiving updates through Becky. Don't know what I'd do without her.

Ordered your car in October and you still don't have it?

Tomorrow will be 13 weeks for my order. Someone at GM needs a little nudge to get these things moving. I say we riot on facebook! LOL

I ordered my ZL1 on October 12 2012. Dealership advised they had an allocation and would take 6-8 weeks. In January 2013 I called GM customer support for assistance and later that month my dealership General manager contacted me. General manager advised that they were going to have their Meeting with the district rep on 1/29/13 about my status still at 1100. Meeting took place at the dealership and they called plant manager to confirm that they have a sold order to push through. Then my order changed to 3000 status on 2/18/13. I am now at 3400 status with a TPW of 3/18. Best of luck with your orders. Both Becky and Maureen r the best.

Order Mine 1/21...TPW 2/25....Built 2/28... Arrived at Dealer......3/11...Picking it up 3/16 .... That's 7 weeks! Sounds like you dealer might be jerking you around a bit, or they don't get a big allocation of camaro's... My 1LE arrived on the truck with 5 other camaro's...

Sorry to hear yours is taking so long!

No. Intital TPW of 12/31 was moved back to 2/11, just like several others here. It was built around the 15th. Been sitting since, waiting for warmer weather.

Those times are always estimates. The typical answer is "6 - 8 weeks".

At the moment, it depends as much on what you ordered, as it does the build date. The 1LE's and ZL1's have been bayed because of weather. These types of delays are not figured into the estimate.

I feel your pain!!! I ordered a 45th SS vert. I was told by the dealer I would be driving it Labor Day weekend. Car was built 8/23/11 delivered to my dealer on 10/06/11. You will forget all that wait time when you drive out of the dealer. Good luck!!

Good to know. Hopefully that time comes soon.

I got off the phone with my dealer an hour ago. He says the car should arrive in a few days but he's not sure. He's had no luck contacting the rail company.

My order was like a yo-yo. Order was received by GM on 2/14 and originally told it would be late April for a delivery. When my wife got the order number the owner said he had talked to his rep and the TPW was bumped to 3/11. I checked with Bechy shortly after that and it had then slid to TPW 3/18. When my wife was back in visiting the dealership owner he advised her that the car was thru production on Monday 3/11 and due to be shipped. A couple days later the status went to the car being Bayed...... So for the moment I think a lot of us are in the same boat. A few semed to have squeeked out but the rest are parked. Who really knows what GM is doing anyway.

All I know is that the weather is crap up home and the plant in Canada isn't that far north of us and know it crap & cold there too. I'm in no hurry though because if the car delivers now it'll just set in the show room until the weather clears then it's just a quick 2 mile drive to the house & garage to set some more.........

I'd cancel and get the '14 since they are taking forever. Blessing in disguise?

I read the '14 Camaro will be introduced at the NY Auto Show which starts in 12 days. I wonder how much time would go by between announcement and production.

Now that I'm not sure? I did however see someone post that they are stopping orders for MY13 next week as well? I don't know any truth to that though.

I hate to be spending the same amount of money on a car that will soon be outdated. I'll have to look further into it. Pushing my waiting time into the 8 month category would not be a pleasant experience.

All cars are "outdated" in the same amount of time every year.

I understand. It'll be worth the wait either way. MY14 I'm sure won't disappoint. You may have to wait until fall for them though, assuming you did wait and ordered once released.

The last I heard, the 14 schedule was back to "normal". In other words cars start shipping in August. Last year (ie: 2013 MY) was an exception.
