Camaros in Houston and markups

We new it would happen.
Nine Ball...The pics you took at Mac Haik, I went by to look today and the CGM is sold and gone. The yellow is there but sold. They had a black V6 with cloth.
I started talking to a salesman as I noticed the "market adjustment" of 6k Not that I was there to buy... He said that if I want one I better hurry. I told him that I will not pay over MSRP and he said "good luck" I said thanks but I wont need it. That there are quite a few dealers selling at msrp. He said no there isn't, I said yes there is, no there isn't, yes there is. Then he says if there were some for msrp that they would buy them. I laughed. He said the markup was 8k but the window read 6k so he argued that with me also, so I told him to look at the window... end rant.

Anyway, I set the drivers seat all the way back and if it would have been a M6 i wouldn't have been able to push the clutch in all the way. I am 6 feet even 215 lbs. But doing that there is absolutely no leg room for the rear seat. Other than that, the cloth was nice, it felt good. I really cant wait till it is my turn to get one.

Sold the 68
Ready for the 2010

U think GM dealers are the only ones that mark up prices on new release cars? How bout the Challengers last year? I saw some as high as 15g over. I dont agree with it by any means and would never pay over sticker for any vehicle, but thats the way it goes for the first batch.

You see mark-ups on GM, Ford, Chryslers, Nissans...etc whenever a popular model is released.

If A dealer thinks someone will pay it, they will mark it up. Plenty of Chevy dealers across the country selling for MSRP or less. A couple Sponsors here may also be able to point you in the right direction as well.

I waited to buy a SSR in 2004 because of the dealer markup , I paid sticker then months later they were knocking off $5k and toward the end of the four year run $12k off. So even if you buy at sticker you'll look like a chump by the guy that wait longer and pays invoice or less. My dealer wouldn't budge on the markup on the Camaro so I used that to get more on my trade, "I pay retail plus for yours you pay retail plus for mine". I'm sure they made good money off my lack of patience.

What about the 10-20K markup on the Prius, 10-25K for the GTR??? Come-on that is just plain ignorance!!!! Every manufacture has dealers that mark up! Get off the GM bashing!!!!
