Yes you will need to put a downpayment on the car to get one reserved! How much??? That depends on your dealer.

look three posts down from yours..#13. He answered your question.

by camarogreg
"most dealers ask for a deposit to place the order. It is at the dealers descretion as to how much this would be. Once an order is accepted, which in the case of Camaro won't be until December or January, the dealer is obligated to that car. That is why we ask for deposits."

Just a thought - although it seems weird to order a car without knowing the pricing, GM may use pre-order trends to see what is popular and what is not and then use that information to adjust pricing. We already have rough guestimations based on competing products and prices for features on other GM cars. If a feature seems to be unpopular during pre-ordering and we perceive the likely cost to be high, they might lower the real price of that feature.

My dealer said he just found out that pricing will be released on 10/13 between 7am and 8am central time. He's not camaro scotty, but we'll see if he's right soon enough.

That's a logical assumption since that's when they will be able to order, but that's making an assumption of a large business doing things logically.

Yeah, Im very pessimistic about it. I hope he's right tho. Either way, he's a good MSRP or less guy. One thing that scared me tho was he said that after the tuesday after ordering, you cant change the order. And the deposit is not refundable. BUT, thats with pricing known. If I know pricing I wont need to cancel or change my order. We'll see what happens Monday...... Im not going to order blind without a refundable deposit.

If I had some spare coin to wager.....I'd be betting against what this dealer thinks.
