Custom ordering

When we place an order through the dealership, on average how long does it take for the car to arrive? I realize at first the timeframe may be a bit longer due to the number of orders, but never having ordered a car, it is something I have never had to really wonder about. Also when ordering, do you agree to the pricing information upon the order or is that something that is done after the car is received at the lot?

I am by no means an expert on this, but if the Corvette ordering process is of any example, the total wait time is usually on the "months" scale. Meaning, once the order is placed, it is not unreasonable to wait about 1.5 months or more until your car is delivered, assuming it isn't singled-out for a "quality-control" review process, which MIGHT delay it further.

Pricing, AFAIK, is agreed upon once the order is placed, at the dealer level. But, I'm a noob when it comes to factory orders.

I'm sure others with more first-hand experience will join-in to refute or confirm these assumptions.

I think its like 6 to 8 weeks, not sure though. I think the pricing would be taken care of prior to the order being placed, keep in mind alot of dealerships dont like placing orders they prefer to sell whats on the lot.

from my understanding you put your order in and it all depends on if they are making a series of cars with that power train, color and roof (sunroof, convert) options. everything else is minor and can be changed from car to car. it could be weeks or months

but that was a long time ago in a galaxy far far away when I heard that.

I can't imagine there being too much to order if the initial release notes mean anything.

You get an LS, 1LT, 2LT, or SS...and you get an RS package on top of any of those. Insert your favorite color paint and interior colors here and that's about as custom as it's going to get.

Unless some more info or speculation has happened that I've missed (been out and about for a few days and things can change quickly in these times!!)

it is very likely Chevy will be accepting orders before pricing is released. since this is a new car, on a new line, the initial orders could take a while. also remember, GM is going to accept orders months before the 1st car is built...

as little as 4 weeks, up to 8 weeks. Usually you'll need your deposit down, and then the final paperwork is done after the car has arrived. (unless you're ordering from one dealer and drop shipping to another dealer, then the car has to be paid for before it is delivered.)

The price is in your contract at the time of order. The only thing that could happen (unless the dealer is crooked...) is the price could be adjusted because of incentives at the time of delivery.

So, for instance...say they are doing a $2,000 cash back...and you order...then when it arrives that incentive is no longer there.. You aren't eligible for that incentive? Likewise, if there wasn't an incentive at the time of order and then when the car arrives there is a $2,000 cash back...you are eligible for that?

(I understand the chances of ANY incentives at launch time are less than slim and none...but I'm curious on any future purchases).

If they readily have the car you have optioned, in stock, it won't take too long for it to arrive. About 3~4 weeks is what it took when I ordered a GTI. But since there might be a lot of demand, with the high anticipation of this car, I suspect it to arrive within 5~6 weeks. It's entirely a guess though according to my personal experience.

You'll be able to take orders before pricing is set. I'm sure you saw the IDL. Order bank willl open in the fall. Production wont start until Feb.

that is correct. you get whatever incentives are in place at time of delivery. that fine print is on every manufacturer's ads.

"must take delivery by xx/xx/xx"

Incentives are good at the time of delivery, not the time of purchase.

So at time of order you pay what? MSRP, Invoice?

And when you take delivery, you would get whatever discounts are available.

My point being, the price at delivery should be the same or go down, not up, since you don't figure in discounts at time of order?

Yes?

Correct, pricing isn't figured with incentives at the time of the order. When the car is delivered, any incentives will be included in the contract.

The price you pay at the time of order is the price that is agreed by both dealer & buyer...MSRP, $300 over invoice, or what ever. Subtract Chevy incentives from that at delivery.

I'm fairly confident we'll have pricing when we have the ability to order, or before.

The timeline I got from the IDL and our ordering guide is:

Pricing - December
Ordering - January
Production - Feb

VW and GM "ordering" are very different. I was told at the dealer, VW does not allow "orders" as we know them here in the states. GM you can actually order the car you want.

Dealerships just want to sell cars. The reason they want to move the car in stock is they are using up the "dealer cash", holdback and advertising GM gives the dealer to finance the car while it is in stock on the lot. They also don't want you changing your mind on the purchase (a sale today is worth 2 orders tomorrow).

And yes Scotty is right on. If they offered $1000 rebate when you order it and the incentive expires while you car is built, then you take delivery, you do NOT get the $1000 rebate. The opposite is true if they add a rebate while it is being built.

I love doing orders...it's like money in the bank. But CamaroScotty is right 6-8 weeks for custom orders. Price is agreed on when the order is placed. And we won't have to worry about rebates on the Camaro...we won't see them for a while.

I will be ordering a car from Berger in MI. I copied my email from them for everyone to read.-
Greetings from one Camaro enthusiast to another. Berger Chevrolet and I are excited about GM’s plans to build the concept Camaro. I believe that I speak for all of us when I say that GM needs to build this car!



Berger delivered over 200 Camaros in 2002 – the last year they were produced. I believe that GM will be extremely generous to us when vehicle allocations are finally made. With this in mind, I would like to offer you an opportunity to purchase a new Camaro from Berger – one of the original Muscle Car Dealers of the 60’s and 70’s.



To place your name on Berger’s Camaro Reservation List, call me direct at 616-293-1850. If you prefer, you can email me at djacques@bergerchevy.com.



We require a minimum down payment of $1,000. This down payment will secure your name on the Camaro Reservation List in the order it is received. Your down payment is fully refundable.



Thank you for your interest in the rebirth of one of America’s true classic automobiles!



As we get information we will send it on to all of you right away so that you will know everything that we do on this exciting car. Also if you hear or receive any information I would greatly appreciate you dropping me an email to djacques@bergerchevy.com so that I can pass it on to everyone.





Here is the information on our show.


To all you car enthusiast we at Berger Chevrolet would like to invite each and everyone to our 9th annual all Chevrolet Show here at Berger Chevrolet. Here is a link to all the information about the show. http://www.bergerchevy.com/CamaroSS/ChevySHOW8.htm We look forward to see each and everyone at the show, even if you do not currently own a Chevrolet please come and check out the one that came. As in the past three years we at Berger Chevrolet have tied our show in with the 28TH Street Metro Cruise. This is the 4TH year for them and each year it is getting BETTER

To all fellow (and ladies) Camaro nuts Here is the latest link to what GM unvealed on 7/21/2008 at 4pm eastern time. http://www.chevrolet.com/camaro/ Check this out it will let everyone know what GM is thinking.

As I get more information I will try to pass it around. Please send me any information that you find. Thank you for your interest.

Please stop by and say HI! Hope the rest of your summer is a safe and great one.


Regards

Again, we will not be taking deposits until we find out what the allocation is - we're not the ones that will be giving people who put money down any bad news. Problem here is, with a big list of deposits, and no MSRP OR LESS being stated - you run into a "we have an allocation to order available - the price will be $XXXX over sticker for the first round of orders". That's what the Dodge boys did down the road....a little bidding war between the people waiting for the car. Get a MSRP or LESS up front, BEFORE placing your deposit. You'll be happier in the end!

Man, Scotty! I wish you were in my neck of the woods, with your policy on MSRP or less! I hope to find a dealer that's as fair as you down here.
