I can confirm that too. I recently helped my sister-in-law buy her first car. I had a family member that worked at a dealership down the street from me, and he got us a family discount which was a pretty good price. But I decided to call some internet managers at other dealerships around the valley. I was shocked to find out that we could get the same car for more than $1k less than the family discounted price if we went through an internet manager. It's definitely the way to go.

I have bought vehicles from a local delaership since 1990. I have an 18 year relationship with this guy. To bad that they dont sell Chevy's. I wonder if they can get one for me? I don't plan on getting one until early 2010 anyway. So if you are looking for a good deal on GMC, Pontiac or Buick then go to

I'd turn around and walk away. Since you bring this to mind and I don't recall discussing it before, I have to mention another dealer.

When I was buying my first Camaro, I wasn't sure if I wanted a Firebird/TA or a Camaro. A bud of mine whom I worked w/ bought a brand new decked out Firebird right when they were released. It was gorgeous, so I wanted to go to their dealership and take a look/price.

Well, I get to Superior Pontiac in SA and get out of my car. I walk to the Firebirds for sale.....no stickers w/ prices to be found on them....only worksheets showing what the veh was built w/. Salesman comes over and I inquire about prices. He asks me to come inside. Well, I'm serious about buying, but am just shopping around at this point (gotta get those prices, you know?).

He comes back w/ papers in hand and asks me to sign some paperwork to release pricing info. I just about fell over. "I have to sign paperwork to get a price? Are you kidding me???" He tells me it's their company policy that they need to get a prospective buyers info and signiture in order to release pricing information on thier cars. I told him he needed no such info to give me the MSRP on a freakin car. He still refused to give me anything w/out a signiture. I told him their business practices were rediculous and I walked out saying I was going to the Chevy dealer to look at Camaros.

One week later, I pulled up to Superior Pontiac w/ a typed letter in hand driving my new Camaro. I saw the salesman outside, walked up to him, asked if he remembered me, and he replied that he did. I asked him, "you see that Camaro?" He replied that he did. "That's what happens when salesmen work w/ prospective buyers. All I asked for was the MSRP. I could be driving a Firebird right now." I handed him a letter (later realizing that I should have handed it to his manager) which complained about their "procedures" and how it was BS that they needed a signiture to release something as simple as a price which should have been on the window in the first place (like my Chevy dealer).

Due to that day and salesman, I will NEVER go back to Superior Pontiac.

BOOOOOOOOoooooooo....

This is how I bought my truck, and I got it for 4k less than the sticker on the window WITH new tires and a drop in bed liner.

My first try at my camaro will be through my bank they have a purchasing service that gets vehicles at 500 over invoice, no dealer, no loan issues, no haggling, So more time driving.(heck they even take my trade-in and I can test drive at the bank)

I talked to these idiots about a month and a half ago. They claim that the base camaro will start at 42000-43000 and top will be 60000-65000. I told the sales manager that he is f-ing crazy, i could get a vette for that. Of course he said that I couldn't because the vette starts at 74000.

Stay away, far, far away!

For the V6? Its an extremely safe bet that you will be able to buy one for 22k or so. We've been told it will be priced to be competitive with the mustang, and if they don't the Camaro will die quickly. The V8's, look for them starting in the 28k range, right between the G8 GT and Mustang GT.

That is the million dollar question for the new Camaro. LS3 could potentially be the base V8. There are some strong arguments for that happening. The other camp says that LS3 will be the top engine and be in the mid to high 30's. Thats a huge price range. The current guess for the SRT8 fighter is $36 150 http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2799

Just spoke with these guys a few minutes ago about ordering a new Camaro, when the topic of price came up the salesman said that they would be selling them above MSRP because "all cars are sold above MSRP for the first model year, and even more so for the Camaro since it's been so long since these cars where made"

I almost forgot to post this...

The dealer I've been going to here in Jacksonville says they will be selling the first Camaros at 55k. They didn't even flinch when I questioned them on what the total mark up was. They simply said they are confident that someone else will pay that much, if I won't. They think they can sell em for that much regardless what the MSRP is. I'm assuming they were talking about the entry level V8. I will definitely be waiting. Coggin Chevrolet in Jacksonville FL.

Nice huh.

Regina motor products, in Regina Saskatchewan, Canada stated that their customers will pay what they see or to bad the next person will, and there will be no test-driving the Camaro. A salesman that was not happy with that decision of the management quoted this to me.

Ed Morse Pontiac in Sunrise, FL gave me an attitude about test driving a G8 when they first arrived. Had 1000 or $2000 markup on it too. When I called the saleman on his attitude he started changing but I was already pissed and told him to keep his lousy G8's.

Then, a couple of weeks later I went to the ED Morse Chevy store (same lot, separate stores) and they were very nice, but they said the sky's the limit on price gouging new Camaros. Told them I wanted to order one at msrp, and the mgr said he would. A couple of days later I wanted to check if they would order more than one Camaro for other members at msrp before posting info, and they won't answer or even call me back.

So out of curiousity I went to the website of the dealer that sold me the GTO and asked whether they will sell the new Camaros at MSRP or below. Their answer? We don't know what the pricing of the Camaros will be yet.

Wow. He didn't even answer my question at all. Doesn't sound good. Hopefully the guy is just a 'tard.

I talked to one of our local dealers here in EP and they said that they were going to have them marked up around 2,000 to 5,000. Unfortunately this place gets first dibs on all the cars that are worth looking at like the corvettes. They have always gotten the first dibs on all new corvettes.

The place was mission chevrolet at 1316 george dieter EP texas

That's bizarre. Several years ago I went to a dealer, asked if they had any Camaros, the guy said no, but I have a Firebird...I drove it around and liked it. The deal breaker was the color - I'm not a big fan of orange. If I recall correctly, he was even going to go down on the price some more b/c of the color!

Yeah...I'll never forget that experience.

They were going to drop the price on an orange colored Firebird?? See....SOM (sunset orange metallic) is one of my favorite colors on 4th Gens).

I agree totally. I just bought a new Avalance LTZ and I not only shopped it online in my state but even went to surrounding states, worked like a charm. Got the lowest deal quoted online from a dealer 250 miles away, took this to a local dealer and bought the truck, they matched it of course. Ended up paying 40,500 for a truck with an MSRP of 48k which took me about 2 weeks of back and forth negotiating with probably at least 12 dealers so I felt at the end of the day this was the best deal I was going to get at the time. Saved me a lot of driving around from dealer to dealer playing the game and did not really have to deal with a car salesman. Ended up dealing with the internet manager and once inside the dealship everything went fast and smooth, no getting stuck in the back room under hot lamps with 3 guys starring me down.
