Reality Check

New to the forum and I was looking for some assistance or more of like a “Reality Check”

Without going into too much detail. I am stuck in a giant dirty sandbox for a couple more months and I would like to order a Camaro 2SS as soon as I get back to the states. I would even order it before I go home if I could find a dealer willing to lend a hand or work with me a little. I am getting extremely frustrated with the dealers back home. I have asked the dealers about a couple GM sponsored programs, a military discount program and a USSA discount program. It explains the programs in detail on the GM website. Both programs can be used on the Camaro and both programs can be used in conjunction with each other. This amounts to right around $1800.00 GM discount. I have emailed 10 dealers in the state of North Dakota so far not one is willing to accept the programs. One dealer said he would accept one or the other of the programs but not both, but get this; he wanted MSRP + $4000.00 on a 2010 Camaro! My question is, Have I completely lost touch with reality thinking I would be able to use the programs GM has offered us military guys on a 2010 Camaro? I guess I don’t understand how the dealers will lose if the programs are GM sponsored. Why am I getting the run around? The wife and I really want a Camaro we owned a 4th Generation before the kids car seats came into play now that they no longer need the seats we want to get another Camaro, but it seems like its impossible and I will not pay over MSRP. Just frustrated I guess sorry for the lengthy first post.
Any one know of any respectable dealers in North/South Dakota or Minnesota?

I know two dealers in Texas that will do it. It took me a while to find them but I got both discounts thru a dealer in Houston, TX. You can order it now with just a $500 deposit with a credit card, that's what I did. If you want emails and phone #'s let me know. God Speed and make it home safe!

I'm sorry to hear that thee dealers won't accept your discounts, but to heck with them. They probably don't appreciate a soldier who's defending their country so they can sell their cars.
Maybe you should try ordering in person when you get back to the states.

But if it's any consolation, I salute you for your bravery and thank you for your services to our country. You are the best of the elite.

Good luck and hope u come back safely to your family with a new camaro in your driveway you have more then earned it. Respect.

I would also would like to add GM dealers have a golden oppertunity here with a hot car like the camaro to build some long term relationships and build back a strong reputation and company but no they just think about the quick buck. All these dealers sure have shown there true colors with this car i hope everyone remembers this when they buy future car purchase's i know i have. Honestly if a dealer like Newmans with Camaro Scotty was with in a few hours drive of me they would have my business for life. The way they treat there customers u cant put a price on that. Thats one class act operation and how a business should be ran.

Hey Todd, you're in Casper? How long have you had your Camaro? I was in Casper for the last two months with my black 2SS with CGM stripes. Maybe you saw me around. I've been in Wichita for a week now.

To the OP. That's really sucks there are so many dealers out their that won't cooperate, especially a member of the armed services. I really hope those are the dealers that are on the endangered species list at GM.

It may be a drive but it may be worth checking with any of these dealers..... You could always take a roadtrip or have it shipped.

I truly appreciate all the replies; I thought I was going crazy for awhile. After the thread was moved to the "Dealer Discussions" section I was able to see that many others have had problems with dealers pertaining to the 2010 Camaros. The majority of my family is in Wisconsin, so if things continue to be difficult in the Great Plains area I will more than likely venture back home to Wisconsin for a Camaro. Maybe CamaroScotty will be willing to work with me.

John Heister Chevrolet in Angier, NC is who I went though. I'm in the same boat as you, brother. Thank God summers almost over. Anyways, Frank Batko, my sales rep guaranteed me that I'd get the car at MSRP PLUS I'd get whatever discounts and incentives applied at the time of purchase, to include USAA and the military discount. Great guy.

CamaroScotty is one of the most respected sales rep we have on these boards everyone loves him only problem is he is prob soo backlogged with orders its not even funny. At least you know you will be treated right right from the beginning. If you go to Newmans this is what Scotty looks like

Luther Brookdale Chev email Scott Larsen he is a super guy to deal with and very passionate about Camaros...he contacted me more often about tracking the production and delivery of my car than I even asked. He is honest and will be upfront about the discounts and his allocations. his email is Scott.Larsen@lutherbrookdalechev.com

It was exactly two months to the day from order to delivery and not a single monitary surprise as we closed the deal. Thanks for your service!

Thanks for the post.

As far as backlogged, that has changed a little...I have MAYBE, a months worth of SS orders.

If you want a 1LS, 1LT, or 2LT.....THOSE could go in the next week or two!

And I'm working on a "new item" for the Camaro Scotty Delivery prize vault! Now, three of the items I was giving out were pretty cool.....but I like this item better - and it was time to improve it just a little. Let's just say it is "collectable". Some people sell Camaro's. I love them.
