Anybody else get the run around?

I ordered my Camaro on December 24th, and the oder hasn't hit 2000 yet. So I went in to see my dealer today to ask him how many allocations he has and their order guy told me that they don't have allocations, and he just talked to his rep, and has to wait until next month to see if he is going to get an allocation to order my car.

When I asked him how many orders are in front of me, he didn't answer me. He then said that if a dealer has allocations, and they aren't selling cars, they might be able to get one to order my car... otherwise he said that his rep is thinking the order might go in in March, and I could get my car mid March to late April.

Soooooooooooooo...

I think I need to find another dealer.

Are there any dealers here that have allocations and can order the car for me, at or below MSRP, no extra charges... and have it shipped to a dealer near me? (I'm here in the CA. Bay Area)

Also, what about my $500 deposit? If they haven't ordered my car, can I get that back?

I'd like to have a car mid March...

I wanted to keep my tax dollars local... but I feel like I'm being jerked around.

Thanks,

Sam

I always tell people not to put deposits down in cash or check. Always use a credit card, that way if there are order issues or something else and you want to go somewhere else you have recourse to get your money back. You may or may not get your deposit back. Find another dealer with allocation or find one on the lot somewhere, call around.

Talk to Becky, she is great when it comes to ordering cars and having them courtesy delivered

As for your deposit, you sure can get that back. Whether the order went in yet or not. If you so choose to cancel your order at any point, for any reason, you are entitled to be refunded your deposit. Some dealerships will probably give you hell for it, but its your money until you receive the car and sign on the dotted line.

I'd say you SHOULD get your deposit back. Not like the orders at a point where they can't go in and change it. But based on your story you may be dealing with a stealership that don't see it that way. Good luck

They have 24 hours to give your deposit back from the time you ask them. I had the same problem the local dealership gave me a huge run around so I got it somewhere else. I went straight to the Sales GM when I asked for my $1000 deposit back, had it the next day no problems. Pulled up right in front with my new ride too, the guy looked mad that they missed the sale. It's their own damn fault for not being straight with me.
