Dealer got my car Wrong!!

Hi all! New member here! and New owner (Soon) "waiting for right car"
Well Dealer called late today to say Car is here, so I go to pick it up and low and behold....FAIL...I Ordered an Orange 2SS RS With Orange/black seats, polished wheels, no sunroof.. And there sat before me an orange 2ss rs black seats, sunroof, painted wheels, and 200 miles on it!!! WTF!
I in so many words said well someone wasn't paying attention to me when I said what I wanted..So they start with,, Well you said seats did not matter, sunroof you said with or without, And the Wheels they said they did not even know there was a choice from polished and painted! ??? get with the program fellas! know your options man! And 200 miles on it? How many test drives did this thing take? I said for $37,000 i'm NOT going to "settle" for whatever they wanted to give me because thats all they said they could find..Well the Manager says he will find the right car and it may take a few days though...Well if they don't I guess I'll be ordering a 2011 in the same trim just paying slightly more and waiting alot longer

More than 37k for a 2011? I should think not. Did you want an automatic? You need to drive a harder bargain. Is there another dealer nearby?

Good for you for standing up for yourself. Not being able to find one that was just what I wanted was the reason I ordered mine. They probably did a dealer swap when they found one "close" to what you asked for, so who knows where it came from. In these cases they have someone go pick the car up and drive it to your dealership, which might explain the mileage. I know a man from my church who does this for my local dealership. Right now it may seem like a hassle, but I think ordering is the way to go. When I got my car it only had 15 miles on it and was made to match what I wanted.

If you're doing a locate/swap...have to very specific, see the actual invoices yourself of the cars they locate & attempt to get. I've never understood the surprises in this, unless you go all on verbal and "get me..."

Check the papers, the dealers where the car could come from, and go from there. You'll get the right one...eventually

As already mentioned, talk to some of the sale folks that post on this board such as Scotty, Becky or Anna. They may be able to help you out and even ship the vehicle if you are not able to get what you want from a local dealership.

After I became frustrated with a local dealership, this is what I did...No regrets!

UPDATE! Well guess what? Now they say that the dealer in GA wont sell the car to them!!!WTF? THESE PEOPLE ARE GIVING ME A HEARTATTACK!! I am so friggn stressed out... So I call the GM of the dealership and reamed him a new a@@hole about how this has been the most miserable purchase of my life...I get the yes sir treatment and he says he is putting an APB on this car for me. He seems to think there are dealers that might have a 2011 a few days out!!! Well I'm not holding my breath but if this dont end soon.....Wait...arm is going numb...DOHHH....

UPDATE....UPDATE....UPDATE....UPDATE

Contact a CAMARO5.com sponsoring dealer immediately!. Don't even think about what service would be like from them if they can't even get the order right.

We now return this thread to its original OP.

Well hollyshit man! If you're talking about the one off of the Linton exit by the Mercedes dealership then I'm so lucky to open this thread! I was considering buying from them (A Camaro of course). I live nearby that dealer and I can't believe that a dealship could botch an order so badly like that.

As someone posted above if this is the way they would treat you this way to buy a car then your going to get screwed when it comes times for service. Look elsewhere...no matter how far and get what you want...Some of the GM dealers better remember that this car alone for now has shown that GM got it right...and they better know that we do not have to put up with bullshit sales people.
