Talking Just got the call! Its here!

Spoke to the saleman yesterday, said a week or two. It arrived this morning around 9:00 AM. Heading for the dealership to finalize everything.

One disapointment, no sunroof! All along I was told and the bill of sale showed sunroof. Will not deter me from getting the car!

VIN# 2G1FT1EW8A9125963

Pictures to follow.

Congrats. Will they be compensating you for lack of sunroof ? Maybe some free stripes ????

I like the roof better without the sunroof. Car looks good. Another car for our boards. Your going to love it. I bet there will be a sleepless night or two until it gets into the driveway.

You guys are so gracious to not care but this is just another example of the poor customer service that is surrounding this car.

I have had to search high and low just to get a place to give me the time of day to SELL me one of these things, and when I finally found a place that will take my money, I'm getting the run around with respect to the amount of order slots available and how the poor dealership has to convince the regional managers to open up a slot to order these cars.

On top of that, I'm hearing about options being unavailable and also problems (like rally stripes) and now you get yours without a sunroof when you've clearly ordered one? I would take the car (of course) and complain to hell about it to GM head office and/or the dealership.

This is REALLY bad customer service and you wouldn't tolerate it if it wasn't a Camaro. So you shouldn't have to tolerate it here. GM consumers must be heard! This is SO BAD!

To be fair, I sent email to all the dealers in my area to find one with allocation. This dealer replied and stated that they had an order identical to my wish list.

This was the salesman's error, not the dealership. I did indeed try to get compensation, no luck. I had to bargain for over two hours to get to MSRP.

I pick up the car tomorrow and all this angst will soon fade from memory.

Thanks to all for your support and best wishes!

Camaro5 rocks!!!!!

If "sunroof" is listed on the bill of sale along with the option code for the sunroof, and you paid MSRP including the sunroof, you basically just handed over $1,200 to your dealership. I would demand getting that back. That's enough to cover tinting + stripes i bet!!

I can't believe how dishonest a lot of the dealerships are.

more importantly though, congrats on the car!!

Hello, the price was adjusted to reflect the missing sunroof. Not a stripe fan.

Here are some pictures, just finished, wash, checked and claying wasn't needed, zaino, repeat, admire the car, repeat, giggle like a school girl...etc...
Car was perfect, no issues, a couple of very,very minor imperfections in the paint, dust specks only I could feel. Otherwise she's a beast, calling her "Inferno".

Hello, with all the rain I am sitting at 100 klms. Hoping for better weather this week as I and the wife are on holidays. Planning to put many kilometers on the Car if it ever stops raining.

Thanks,
