I couldn't find a definitive answer for this. If I order my 2011 on the first day I can (April 12), when do you think it will roll into my dealership? I've read a million posts, some people get them in 4 weeks, some not for 4-6 months!! I guess my question is, if I order on the first day available, wouldn't my car be built on the first day of production for the 2011's, which is June 7th? Should I still expect to wait 6-8 weeks like they tell you? thanx everyone for your input, much appreciated!

With a vehicle like this yes. I already have sold a 2011 Camaro myself on 2010 pricing, Subject to price increases. The customer doesnt want it until august when his lease comes due on his enclave. Hes left his deposit and all! It all depends on allotment for the dealer you deal with. Well at least thats how it works in Canada! It also depends on how many orders there are GM doesnt know exactly when you ordered until the dealer submits it to GM. Once the dealer does this, GM's system will produce your order number. From the dealership level its impossible to tell when a vehicle will be built until we have a target production week (TPW) and I have seen those move also.

Hopefully this helps

IF your dealer has allocation and it gets pulled for production that week, the absolute earliest you will see it is mid July. However that is only if it gets loaded and shipped before their break the first week of July. If it doesn't get shipped before then, you're looking at start of August at the earliest. If you are ordering from a small dealer, expect it to be pushed back more.

I've read of a few problems / issues that 2010 Camaro owners have been dealing with. I've always heard to stay away from 1st year production vehicles but it seems like this Camaro is a better 1st year package than other first year production vehicles. The GTO for example I heard was very "buggy". Are there any serious quality issues that will be, or need to be addressed for the 2011's?

I use both of these, but Nav is still way better... If it happens I wonder if it will be an easy update to the 2010 models.

I would pay dearly to have it in the dash and get rid of on-star.

+1, that's fine if someone wants it, but don't make it part of a package that someone has to get it. Make it an add on option.

This is all about allocation. Many dealers take the order, but don't have any allocations for the order. If your the first order they have then when they get allocation you should get that spot. Theoretically.

Its hard to predict because cars aren't built exclusively according to when they're ordered. Only thing for sure is that it won't be as bad as last years pre-ordering mess.

Unfortunately Onstar is really not that great compared to a separate GPS
and I actually resent the fact that I spent money on Onstar systems hardwired into the car.

Onstar has managed to get me lost a couple of times already -due to mapping errors in areas which have been around for years - and it is not nearly as good as a GPS at indicating where and when you are turning next / how the road will curve etc..

I actually feel that Onstar devalues the car in most cases - and its annual cost is more than a typical GPS

Don't forget there are other features that Onstar has besides Turn by Turn Navigation.

Automatic Crash Response
Emergency Services
Crisis Assist
Stolen Vehicle Assistance
Remote Door Unlock
Roadside Assistance

Plus insurance companies give you discounts for having it.

I very much doubt that you'll ever see factory houndstooth interiors again... just not mainstream enough to be popular anymore.

aftermarket? sure.

I have been planning to purchase a camaro for some time now, but now am second guessing myself now that this news came out today... Any advice for a person that trades every 2 years? When would be the best time to buy a 2010 to get the best deal since the 2011s will be here soon. Would you guys recommend me buying my camaro now, enjoying it, then get the z28 in late 2011 or 2012?

I was just wondering if anybody ever used the crisis assist option. I could see that being a problem for different people cause my wife considers me not taking the trash out a full blown crisis. Just wondering......

If they put REAL nav in I'll be pissed! It's the one thing I gave up from My CTS when I bought the Camaro. Sure I bought a TomTom for an insane deal around Xmas, but my CTS had an enormous screen and didn't take up windshield space and have wires everywhere. Onstars GPS is ok but without a picture of the roads it doesn't work for me. If they do I will see if It can be installed to replace mine. God I hope they don't. Damn!

PRICE CHANGE

Ok...sooo will the price probably drop somewhat on the 2010 models..once the 2011's go into production....if I can get a 2010 for a little cheaper once the 2011's come out that would be great! Any ideas?!

Does anyone know when the pre-order begins on the convertible. I have had my coupe for a month now, with only about 200 or so miles, going to keep the mileage low, so I can get the convertible...
