Being able to afford it has nothing to do with it. I wouldn't pay a penny more for it if that wasn't the deal. In this case I would however pay the extra because that's an option that I would want. I would have to make sure that $400 is what the option cost to make sure they are not trying to get alittle bit more.

IF, the deal was for MSRP..then the deal has not changed. If GM raised the price of the car to the Dealer and it is reflected on the MSRP then that is what you agreed to pay! At least you are getting something for the price increase (back-up sensors), wanted or not. GM and ALL OTHER manufacturers have price increases throughout the year and most of the time WITHOUT any modifications on the car.:( Just get in the new Camaro you ordered and start having a little fun with it!

Guys we seem to be missing the point on the price increase. It has nothing to do with whether or not this is an option you want or like, or even think is a good idea. Hylton hit the nail on the head....this is NOT an option. It is bundled with other things, I think C & C (I'm actually not sure). This should be treated like power windows and locks or A/C. Those items are included in the car and they are coming regarless of what you want or don't want. There is a price increase in the car, and you are being "compensated" for it by getting "more car" in the form of the sensors.

Unbelievable how much bad advice and terrible "logic?" are in this one thread. Did anyone see the letter from GM? Sounds like the dealer ordered it wrong or just plain wants to get away with screwing a Camaro buyer. No one needs to accept this. Go to Small Claims Court and recover the $400 plus tax plus court costs after taking delivery.

How does a Dealer order it wrong when it has been added as part of every package? It was not the Dealers option to put it on or not..it now is standard equipment..and yes it costs more.

I fully understand what your saying ,but If you ordered the car their should be somekind of cut off that says after this date we are changing . This way anybody that ordered a car don't get any surprises. It's not the customers fault they didn't get his car built under the conditions of the deal. What if gm would change all ss models to the ls9 and say it's going to add $20,000 to the price and everyone that has an ss ordered will just have to pay the extra $20,000 or lose.

sorry man that sucks but MSRP on those are only 295$. sounds like your dealer got an extra bill from you for being uninformed....

$295 for sensors then the Destination charge went up another $100 dollars as well that is where the $400 comes from

Your advice is to go to small claims court and try to recover $400.00 that is standard equipment in a car? I didn't order my car with Onstar but it's on there, I want my money back for whatever Onstar costs. Didn't order the airbags either!! What it has Dex-Coolant instead of Antifreeze!! Thats another $50.00 I could save!

It is STANDARD equipment. Dealer isn't trying to screw the OP over. It was posted here countless times. It is 295 and then you had another 100 to the destination charge, thats 395 dollars. This is almost as bad as the doc fee thread. If the extra $400 dollars is keeping you from buying a Camaro, maybe you really don't need one. Could be an honest mistake on the dealerships part. So lets give them hell, over something that may be an honest mistake, because we here are perfect of-course. And who knows, maybe if you raise enough hell, they just get pissed and refuse service to the customer, or sell the car to someone who really want's a Camaro, and the $400 dollars isn't a huge deal.

The differance here is you already knew your car had airbags and onstar, and you already knew the cost before you signed up. He signed up for one price and got another. It doesn't matter if it's standard or not. Gm should build the cars that where ordered the way they were ordered and set up a change over date that says after this date any car ordered will now come with this option at this extra price. Then we wouldn't get any surprises.

So many people on this thread are being ridiculous. This has nothing to do with market adjustments or the like. Point is that the customer should have been informed as soon as the dealer was informed. And what a lot of you are missing, is that it's not just $295, it's $295 plus interest, perhaps for something that the customer did not want. If it was me, I would have been quite upset as well. I didn't order mine, so I don't know, but don't you receive a document stating the price of your car with all added options etc?

Using that logic, then whatever price he signed up for should be price he pays, that means if there's any extra incentives available when he takes delivery of the vehicle that he shouldn't get them? (ie. the Opt out for $500.00 that is currently in place.)

It's a surprise? We found out about this weeks ago...Or has it been a month now? Opt out of the 60 day return deal and get $500 off....situation resolved. (Or was that one a surprise too!)
