ABM not getting canceled in Canada?

I recently have been reading about all the stuff going on with the ABM being canceled and started to worry, because I want to order my ABM one in spring. I'm from Canada by the way. So I called my dealer and asked my salesman about the ABM being canceled and he didnt know anything about it but he asked the guy in charge of orders and all that stuff that would know everything about that and he didnt hear anything about it either. He said that if it was to be canceled, they would know in advance about something big like that, and they hadnt so much as even heard about it. So it looks like I may still be getting my ABM yet. I dunno, but were maybe the people that werent able to order ABM anymore from the US and not from Canada? Maybe the color cancel, if it be so, is only in effect in the US.

my dealer wasnt aware of this either till i informed him over phone, he said i wouldnt take that info for certain yet, but it seems to be the truth unfortunately. which is also strange cuz wouldnt you think dealers would be informed ahead of time by GM, so they can inform buyers that they have X amount of time to purchase this color before its gone for sure.

Dealers are a bit behind people on this site. It was the same with the backup sensors and the white color being added. When I asked the dealer about those (at the time) they had no idea, and then they called back a few hours later each time and confirmed it.

My dealer knew nothing about ABM being discontinued. He called (his guy) in Detroit and was told it was internet BS .

Just like my dealer did not know about ABL changes or the recent Service Bulletins that were on here 10 days before the dealer got them.

ABM is going away. Bet your dealer a free oil change.

well I sure hope I can get mine before ABM goes away. I hope to order mine to be ready for around april just after the snow goes away. my dealer says it takes about 6 weeks to make one up. ABM is one of the best colors the camaro has, I dont know why it doesnt sell. I just cant believe black is top of the list. I mean, of all the camaros I've seen in real life I have never seen a black one yet and if i did, no doubt itd be dirty anyway.

Order now or wait it out and hope some dealership has one sitting on the lot come spring time or fine a new color.

I hate to say it but your dealership is not in the loop SS-Eric is a salesperson who is in the know.

Good luck and nothing wrong with black I love mine

Not sure about the spring, but for sure, no ABM in 2011 which starts to build mid summer next year.

Think of it this way:

If its getting cancelled in the US, how could they justify keeping it for Canada which has ~1/10 the sales?

They can't, so it gets the axe here too. All cars are painted on the same line, including Impalas.

The dealers tend to be slow on things but my dealer had known about the delay in production several weeks before out site knew.
Im sure ABM is getting the axe here as well, but i dont know how it works. Some colours are available on cars in Canada that arent available on cars in the US and vise versa ie IOM for the aveo

The Aveo is a little different since its worldwide sales (with different badging) are probably greater than its US sales. For the Camaro they are getting rid of the ABM paint from the paint shop, so nobody will be able to get it once its discontinued.

No way you will have ABM in spring. You have until november 11 to order, and those will be built until november 30. Anything else you order is all plain bs.

Most dealer are ignorant on most issues...

You guys pay more for the IOM. Only RJT is premium for us. So, not everything is the same.

Whats the diff between hydro blue and aqua blue? is the hydro blue metallic? The metallib really gives it a nice shine and the lighter aqua shows off the nice cuts and curves of the camaro. and i cant afford the camaro till spring. also. if i bought it now i dowmt wanna drive it right away in the deep winter snow. why does gm have to be so stupid on this one.

If its not popular, what is their motivation for keeping it?
