If My dealer closes?

GM is announcing 1000 dealership closings today. What if its the dealer I ordered my car from is one of them? Where will my order go? will my order be canceled? I have been waiting this long, it would really suck if my dealer closes and my order gets canceled and I have to start all over again.

1100: 2/23/09
2000: 8/7/09 (finally)
3000: 8/11/09 (TPW 9/14)
3300: 9/2/09
3400: 9/14/09
3800: 9/22/09 vin 48156 has been born

If your dealer closes, you will have your work cut out for you to keep that order unless they have started building it already. I have worked on my order since my dealer closed in Jan. After a lot of help and advice from the guys and gals here and at GM, they have located my order, checked to make sure it was correct and are pushing it forward(I Hope).

These announcemnts are not going to be immediate closings like a dealer going out of business, it will take a bit. We'll have to see what GM says is the timetable for this.

I wonder if the 1000 inclused all the Saturn and Pontiac dealerships that would be closing anyways...?

The dealers will have until the end of 2010 to do business.

It's a total of 2600 which includes the stand alone Pontiac dealers (39), Saturn (400), Hummer(?) and Saab (200) dealers. The other 2000 or so will be mostly metropolitan GM dealers (mostly Chevrolet). The small town dealers are said to be safe. Some of the 2000 of course are multi-line dealers that will remain open to sell their other brands. This number will be achieved by October 2010 when all dealer franchise agreements expire.

When a dealership closes the nearest dealer is assigned the customers from the closing dealer for sales and service.

yeah.. no worries... unless you're getting your car after 2010. all the people who ordered now should be safe. all the dealers that GM is contacting now, they are just not renewing their contracts from what i've heard. the contracts run out in 2010.
