Had to walk away!

After a few discussions with my salesman, I had to walk away from the 2011 2SS/RS that I had ordered...and not yet delivered.

The main reason was he called me today to say that he had a 2010 2SS/RS on the lot with GM employee pricing and the monthly payments were too far outside my budget. If I couldn't afford that, I definetly couldn't afford a payment on a 2011.

I guess I will live through everyone here that proudly owns their Camaro and this will give me a chance to save a bigger down payment for the Z28...whenever it comes out!

I look forward to continued reading on here and thanks for all the assistance so far.

You mean you and he didn't talk about pricing/payments when you ordered?

Did you order the same model as he was quoting you on the 2010?

Employee pricing will be allowed on the 2011 models as well.

Pricing was unknown at the time of ordering so I ordered the Camaro blind.

Same model was ordered with different options...

Will employee pricing be in affect in Canada too for the 2011?

Perhaps you can find a good deal on a 2010 1SS w/o RS. That cuts $4K+ off the price. With a good deal, you should be able to drive it away for under $30K.

The Z-28 should be out in a year, but you'll probably need another $12-14K cash just to get down to the same payment you couldn't afford on the discounted 2010 2SS/RS. (Figure MSRP on a Z28 is $8-10K higher + no discounts + dealer markup)

Not saying you shouldn't wait though - the bigger down payment, the more car you can buy.

If I was in the US, this would not be a problem...don't forget Canadian pricing is considerably higher. MSRP on the 2SS/RS is $45,000...GM pricing is $42,000.

Just curious.... what if you came to the USA and bought it? Is there restrictions on US cars in Canada or tax issues making it prohibitive?

US Dealers are not allowed to export these cars as new. Used is a whole different story.


As far as GM Employee pricing being in effect in Canada, I am not sure. I do know that it is here in the States.

Sorry. But don't give up...go for what you want!

Sorry, didn't realize you were in Canada. But the same principles apply with different numbers

that sucks man. keep an eye out for used SS's popping up soon, I'm sure you'll find a good deal somewhere.

I don't remember the exact importing restrictions, but I seem to recall some sort of mileage and/or age number being important. I've heard from a friend that imports japanese RHD cars that it has to be 10 years old. but my friends dad just picked up an 06 porsche 911 out of texas somewhere I think recently. but he got it through because of the miles it had on it or something. it wasn't considered "new"
