Question Placed my order a month ago...

And my dealer has not cashed my check for the $1000 i had to put down for them to order the car.. I placed my order the day after 2011 synergy became available.. i know they had 2 weeks off for the fourth but its been now and my dealer has not actually put my order into the system and no work has started.. Is there a reason i don't know about or is my dealer just being lazy? should i give them a call and see whats goin on? I don't want to be the customer thats constantly harassing them but I do want car asap Its been a month and I'm a bit annoyed that they haven't even placed the order and I don't have a car right now at all, thats the main reason it bothers me so much. Thanks for any help.

My guess is they don't have allocation to get an order accepted. Where in Florida are you?

A month ago? They don't have allocation. I placed mine a little over a month ago (6/24) and my car was built last Thursday. I had an order number before I left the dealer and had a TPW a week later. You need to go to another dealer.

Oh my gosh...go ahead and call them!! No big deal. Don't feel at all that you are being 'the customer that always harrasses them'. I am sure they will be happy to get you your order number for you so you can track it.

I am happy to hear from my customers, especially my Camaro customers!!

I ordered mine July 19th through Sunset Chevy in Sarasota. No problems at all, being built the week of the 16th. Try another dealer.

Could the color (SGM) have any thing to do with getting the allocation? Does anyone know if any 2011 SGMs are being built yet?

My dealer never cashed my $1,000.00 deposit check and I had to write a fresh one when I went to take delivery. As long as you have an order number and a sales agreement you should be good. But call and ask why they haven't cashed it yet.

Call the dealer, they maybe just holding you check. Did they put the order in the "order workbench" when you ordered, if the did, they should have given you an order #, with status 1100. Like you, my SGM was put in on 7/1/10 and sat for 2 weeks, but as soon as they were back it moved to 2500 and TPW of next week. You should be on the same track unless they did not have an allocation. If they still don't, get your check back and find a dealer the does!!!

I gave my dealer a $500 check on June 15th. They waited until they had allocation to place my order one week ago on July 26th. They "gave" me their one and only Camaro allocation at the time. I think some dealers are just having trouble getting allocation. I live in a town that has a population of about 12,000. Not all of us live in high-sales-volume areas. Not only does my dealer have NO Camaros on the lot, they are running out of everything. I guess it's a good sign.

Man really sorry to hear that, they could be building your car next week. I would find out when they expect to have an allocation, or find a dealer that does. At least when you do get it your car, you can drive your's year around. I'm hoping to get mine by Labor Day, and that will give me 2 months before storing it.

I agree with the majority here. Call your dealer and ask him whats going on. My dealer didn't have immediate allocation and told me so last year - but he did cash my $1000 deposit check in two days - but I received an order number the day I placed my order. Seven months later, I FINALLY received my awesome Camaro.. Good Luck.

Is there any way that they could have placed my order by now but just not given me an order number? Or are they supposed to give you the order number when they place it?

When they order a car [any car] an order number is given that exact moment. The status will show @1100. It takes allocation to get GM to accept the order, at which time it show a 2000 status, and you're on your way.

Are you in South Florida? If so, which dealer did you order from? I may be ordering soon and want to make sure they can order immediately...or I will be checking out one of the dealers online here on Camaro5.

From orlando...

I had the same fears you did. My dealership was large, and very busy...they had the order number and didn't respond to me for 2-3 days. I became furious thinking they did not have allocation, then found out I was already at 3000 status.

Point is...remain calm until you get a hold of them. Be thankful they haven't cashed your check...If they don't give you the answer you want to hear when you finally make contact advise them you will not be purchasing from their dealership and to return your deposit or check. I know that doesn't make this any less painful, but the process takes patience.

/\ What he said. You never know. Maybe you have a TPW and just don't realize it! Either way don't ever be afraid to call them and ask a question.

I apologize to anyone here that was waiting for an update on this I've just been busy. I'm not sure how many of you will even see this since its been so long, but a little less than a month ago I called my dealer to figure out what was going on and they had allocation and everything but they needed me to sign the buyers order.. isnt it lovely how no one thought to just call me and tell me that but instead decided to wait for me to call them??... so I had to make another hour drive to the dealership to sign the buyers order and they finally placed the order while i was there... I was ready to just cancel my order with them and find another dealer but i just figured theres no point in putting it off longer than it already has been but I am not sure if I will ever go there to place an order again seeing how as not many of them seemed to know what was going on(I knew more about the car and options and ordering it than they did on my first trip there). Anyway my status is 3000 now and i am not sure but I believe my TPW is 10/25/10 because on camarotracking.com thats in the notes section but it says nothing about TPW so I am just assuming thats what that means. But on chevys site it says vehicle is being produced as of 9/07/2010. If any of you happen to see this thread again and can clear that up for me that would be great.
