cant believe this chit

was driving in Lacey today out shopping & my husband spotted a car in the Kmart parking lot along with other cars for sales (basically a huge car dealership off campas sale) & he pulled in. It was a Base model (totally base model) Camaro for $35k??????? We walked away from it. but NOT happy with it.

I am about ready to call the owner of the dealership & tell him what I think about his dealership charging 10k over MSRP. For a car.

They can ask what they want too, dont mean anyone has to buy it for that. They have the right to ask what they want and you have the right to say no. I dont agree with it anymore than anyone else but this is a free market society or atleast was.

Yeah it does suck, and you have to be a dumbass to pay that much...... just the same though,

MSRP is Manufacturer's SUGGESTED Retail Price ..... Not, manufacturer's legally binding only authourized selling price

When i see this stuff its like a big large billboard that says profit is our #1 priority over customer. Thats fine but no way ill ever buy from them in the future ever. This car has shown the true colors of all the dealers thats for sure. What piss's me off is when the dealer gets a customers car in then tries to pull a fast one and charge him for more cause its so popular.

Was it Titus Will??? When I went in to check one out in Olympia, they said 3k over, but were shocked that I was getting my 2SS/RS for MSRP. Wouldn't surprise me...

I don't see any problem with marking up a car sitting on their lot...who cares don't buy it move on....maybe there will be someone who wants to pay.

It's when they agree to a price with someone who has preordered and then jack it up after the fact breaking the agreement....verbal or written it doesn't matter that is bad business.

Call John Dupre at Good Chev. (Renton). If your in the market. They were the only dealer in WA that would honor GMS pricing for me. If you don't mind waiting you can order for MSRP. If you gotta have it now then be prepared to pay over MSRP anywhere you go.

Friendly in Puyallup will honor MSRP if you order it via them.

The problem is they are bankrupt and the Japanese, Koreans, Ford and others are dumping cheap sports coupes and gouging for an LS hurts more than the dealer it hurts GM's ablity to retain market share.

Gotta love those f*$#in state franchise laws........

I have a dream..... that one day we will live in a country where an automobile manufacturer has the right to set up their own dealership network and not have to contract with franchises...... I have a dream that one day GM will be able to sell their cars, on their own, at their own price, at stored owned by GM, employed by people who work for GM, and mechanics who actually train at GM's hq, right along side the engineers and designers of the cars themselves.

I have a dream.

Well NO matter what we are hopfully waiting for a vert lol So we are a couple years out. plus it gives me some time to be in College & doing a few things, before I have to worry about a new car.

That would most likely mean Zhawks Vette & his 95 will go up for sale.


No what pissed me off about the whole thing was the guy that came over, We asked what the price was & he said $35 & when I told him I could get a 2SS RSs for about that price he said HAVE A NICE DAY & slammed the hood down, there was another guy looking at the car as well.

The only options this car had was a sunroof & the paddle shifters (dont know if those or options are not)

I think it is funny that they pull such an expensive marked up car into the parking lot of a store that is known for cheap prices!

Anyone shopping in Walmart is unlikely to spend $10K extra on a car!! Which marketing genius at the dealer though of that one!


If they pulled it up outside of Armani Exchange or something, then maybe I can see them getting somewhere.
