They don't know allocation, price, or all the info on the book yet. We got some of that before some of the dealers read it. Wait until Friday for more information.

Just shop around sounds like that dealer is a dud. Prob why he doesnt have any info cause he's a bum. I d tell him that he lost any of your future business and ask him how his sales were last quarter. Plenty of dealers out there that wanna sell cars.

That is what I am worried I will get out of my local dealer here. When I mentioned October 13 they had no idea what I was talking about. They did tell me that they would charge MSRP, though they also said that there are 5 or 6 people paying "a lot of money" to be first, which worries me. I am afraid the 13th will come and I won't be able to get one from them and I will be scrambling to find another dealer and end up not getting in on the first allotment.

The fact that he didn't know about October 13 kinda shows how good of a dealership that is...

Wow you guys dont give dealers a break you think dealers go onto chevy launch everyday to see if there is new news, no. They only way they will get the info is through a phone call, fax, or from the mail. Dealerships arn't die hard camaro fans and addicts like most of us and are not on here trying to find out new info.

Shouldn't they know by now though? It is my understanding that they should all have the booklets now, or is that an incorrect assumption?

I agree, they are supposed to be selling me the car, it shouldn't be the other way around.

Well either i hope GM sends them a book or emails the dealerships this info or they will be clueless to all of this until we go in there and give them there info and tell them to go to chevylaunch.com and log in. It could get ugly if that happens haha
