Why its good to wait...

if we all wait it will garentee lower prices...
we should wait for the competition to brew as well for better product/lower prices...
personally im not buying it until the new :
audi a3,s3,a4,s4,a5,s5,...
challenger
lancer evo
m3,is-f .... really saturate more
and till the new eclipse comes out, the new mustang, falcon, impala, 370z, and the new mazda 6 and mazda rx8 come out...
apparently a new s2000.... on top of perhaps several shelby models...
when these cars ALL come out thats some serious v8 competition, or performance competition... either category being... competition yeilds better products and better prices... so i will not buy for the first couple years or at least until all these NEW ...cars come out

The only reason waiting is lingering in my mind is because the potential possibility of a Gen V engine. Unlike you, I am not loaded, all the audi models, the m3, hell even the evo and sti are out of my price range. And the fact that this car will be shared with my parents on various occasions (they can't drive a manual), cuts all of the imports out of my car quest because lets face it. Japanese automakers absolutely suck at making automatics or for that matter cheap dual clutch trannies.

It must be nice up there in Canada....thats all i have to say...why not just by a few of previously mentioned?

The reason for me to wait would be better engines and my own economy really.

If you wait till both the Falcon and the Impala are out, you might have to wait for a long time.

Also, the hp wars will peak in a couple years before backing down due to cafe. So, if you want the most it will likely happen in 2011-2012. I'll be buying in 2011 but that is because I have no other choice and because I don't trust 1st model year cars.

its kinda like the people who are trying to get you to save your tax rebate instead of throwing it away and possibly putting yourself into debt with it.

while its a great idea, but no one is going to do it.


im now at a crossroads. while i dont believe i will be buying a new camaro when they first come out. had a serious chat with the fiance at a car show a couple weeks ago...basically there was a guy selling a 69 Z28 camaro and she and i got to talking about it and she told me id have to pick between getting an old 69 in decent shape and being able to build it from the ground up or a brand new camaro (after a year or two)


buuut, praying my backup deal goes thru. a buddy of mine is supposedly getting a large amount of money when he gets back from overseas and we've already been putting forth our future business plan for a drag strip setup. and depending on the amount, he's commented that we will need "work/sponsor" cars...namely the 5th gen. lol only time will tell


but i am going to wait regardless, tho i would love to have the first one that rolls off the line, id be tempted not to drive it. and i like to drive my cars

I'm not waiting. I needed a fun car 6 months ago. I've got two ricers to trade in. I'm chompin' at the bit, foaming at the mouth.

Corvette - payments more than I want.

Infiniti G37, great car, but doesn't turn me on.

Pontiac G8 GT -I don't want a 4-door family car.

Pontiac G8 GXP -only making 5000-7000 (price gouging), I don't want a family car, "just under $40,000", won't be out untill around December, and

Camaro hits the streets in March.

I'm in the midst of looking for a new job (not that the one I have now is bad, but...), and I'm starting my own business.

I hope by the time the camaro comes out I will be more stable, But if all goes to plan I will be getting my camaro within its first few months its on the road.

It is possible that one or more of these cars will beat the Camaro. Chevy will not make any changes to match that competition until the next generation comes out. You might as well never get a new car because there will always be something better in a couple of years.

Im not so sure. Typically, there is a new car then a few years later it gets a new engine. Then they introduce the next generation a few years later. And remember, we know that the gen V engines are comming around 2011

Even if they do change the engine lineup, the competition will be out with different interiors or options. We could all wait for the 6th generation Camaro, but the 5th generation is coming out soon. Most of us are very excited about how superior this one is going to be. Plus, phasing in new engines doesn't necessarily mean that the Camaro will immediately get one. I wouldn't expect a new car to get a newer engine unless the competition tries to top the Camaro.

I love this...all these people talking about doing this and that to get better deals. Obvioiusly you guys haven't done research on new Chevrolets lately. A fully loaded LTZ Tahoe doesn't even have 3 Grand markup from invoice to window sticker. I dont expect the V8 Camaros to have much more than $1500 markup from invoice to window....with no rebates when they first come out....obviously. So all you people who think we make tons of money.... Its really pathetic selling cars these days. People coming in on the defensive and angry to try and get better deals and trying to tell me how it is....That is no way to get good service.

I know you don't make tons of money, but neither do I. The only dealership my family ever got any respect is the one where my Great Uncle is a corporate head. We are all very knowledgeable about cars on this site, and we don't appreciate being treated like we don't know what we're doing. For us, good service is far less important than a good price because all we want is the car. For Mary Soccer Mom, good service matters. Mary Soccer Mom needs you to explain to her why this feature is special or this option is safer. Eric Ricer wants you to show him all the accessories available so he can modify his car with performance parts and appearance packages. We the enthusiasts do not care so long as we get to keep our limited resources for modifying the car outside of the factory. Most of us would rather have the car delivered by truck to our houses than deal with any dealer. We don't care who sells us the car so long as we get the car. It's not about service; it's about honestly pricing the car and giving it to the customer. Your job in customer service is to make the customer happy. If you charge MSRP and get us out quickly without advertising every feature, we will be happy. Enthusiasts like us already know everything about the car. We have been doing research since 2006. We're all over this. All you have to do is charge MSRP to get us to buy.
