Dealership says they can't place order until another 3 weeks

Hello fellow Camaro5 members,

I'm fairly new to these forums, but i browse them quite often. I have been trying to place an order for the ZL1 for the last month and half. I have been talking to the dealership in my city that has been alloted 4 ZL1s, but everytime i try placing an order, they tell me that they have to wait and Chevrolet is not allowing them to order yet. They are only allowed to see the options. Can someone help? They are saying that it may be another 3 weeks before they can place the orders, which is close to the time they will begin producing the ZL1s. I don't understand what is going on.

Well they can place a preliminary order but they can not actually place an order that would be accepted by GM. So yes and no. They should at least take your order. Have you asked them if their allotments are spoken for? Will they let you put money down to reserve one? If all are taken or they won't let you put money down. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

No one has placed an order yet because of the news I just received. They said to check back with them in 3 weeks and it's $2000 down and I should be able to place it then.

they are full of it. You can place the order. Many people have. You will see order numbers in people's signatures.

Now in my case the alocation has not been pulled yet and the order has not been sequenced bla bla.

Now that being said "they" may not be taking orders yet but GM is. IF they were not how would we have been given functioning order numbers.

$2000 is on the high side but not a deal breaker. tons of poeple have gotten 500-1k.

To be honest though they don't sound completely up to speed.

Check back with them next Thrusday Dec 15th. This is the first day "actual" orders can go in.

thta is IF they have an allocation available for this consensus... 3 weeks might not be a wrong answer if they already know they don't have one going in on Dec 15th. Don't be too quick to trash your dealer.

Possible. If they have not received ordering instructions or the "Shell" in which to place the order from GM, they could be telling the truth this late in the game. If they are telling you they have allocation to place the order, call the dealer and ask to speak with the dealerships fleet manager or inventory manager. Request that the manager check this daily to see if the order can be placed. If it can't ask them to call you back when it can be placed. In the meantime, keep checking other dealerships.

Yeah, I see a bunch of you guys with the orders already in and it make me worry a bit because they are only alloted 4. $2000 is a bit high, its the first time hearing it but its ok. I'm just going to keep checking with them every week at least 2 times a week, maybe mondays and fridays

I don't have an order number either and may not get one until Feb... I'm #3 of 3 allocations and the guy with #1 doesn't have a number either. Hopefully he will have his next Thursday when the "real" ordering starts. If you are uneasy drop them a small downpayment

If it makes you feel any better my dealer required a $2k deposit but it was MSRP and I have an order #...so your dealer is full of crap. I even got a call yesterday from the 1st dealership I called who is now getting allocation for ZL1's and the sales manager asked me tons of questions as he apparently doesn't know too much about the car other than he's getting a couple LOL
