Chevrolet Camaro Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • A dealer is trying to add $570 to MSRP....from his email:

    "The window sticker of the vehicle (#LD821) shows $37,635. There is an Environmental Protection Package that is applied to all vehicles that includes paint sealant, interior fabric/leather/carpet protection, and more. The price of that package adds $570 for a total of $38,205. "

    yes it is a scam.
  • I'll tell you the same thing i told the guy above

    Wait until summer, once 315 HP base 2011 Mustang comes out they'll change their tune. There will be no extra fees and they will have plenty of them on the lot.

  • Vinny,

    It was $1200 below factory Invoice(not MSRP, Invoice!). I don't know why u guys have a such a hard time finding this deal. It was from Jerry Haggerty him self.
    $200 under Invoice and $1000 cash rebate. It should be even easier to get this now, since I see them sit on the dealers lots...

    You should have received a bit more than $200 below invoice before rebate on the SS. Around here local is doing $550 below invoice before rebate on the SS.
  • That's a great deal! I guess I got mine couple months ago, maybe that's why it was "only" $200 back of Invoice... Still, I'm very happy with my deal and the car!
  • vinnynyvinnyny Posts: 780
    Nice work! Prices are still holding close to MSRP here in the South. If there had been reasonable deals six months ago, I would have bought one, but now I'm going to wait for the convertible next year.
  • I just bought a 1SS for about $500 below invoice, before the $1000 Saturn Owner incentive. There are a few dealers online at Camaro forums that offer GM Employee pricing (a few hundred over invoice), and they will ship the car to you. Shipping costs vary based on distance, but it's worth checking into.

    So up in NJ, the "dance" for a 2SS with RS, Sunroof, Auto and Black stripe starts at $38,550 MSRP and ends up with a dealer offer of $38,000, as a friend of the family favor.. Its for my daughter (she's paying for it) who wants Bumble Bee Yellow, which the dealer will have to trade in. Fact, since most of his stock is V6 and stick.

    We have a $1000 Pontiac purchase discount in the family that we can count on through at least March 31, I think I can do better, any input or comments?

    I think you can do better. There is a Camaro forum, and there are several dealers who post on that website and are offering all Camaros at GM Employee pricing. They have inventory/prices listed, so go take a look. I live in Pittsburgh, and they can ship a car to my door (from Michigan and Wisconsin) for about $400.

    Website and topic for these dealers is at Take a look.

    I was able to get a 1SS/RS for $1500 below invoice (including Saturn/Pontiac owners discount), but I had to drive 2 1/2 hours to West Virginia to pick it up.

    Good luck.
  • That's a long drive, but heck if you can find it for that cheap it is definitely worth the price. I've been scouring around for a 1995 Z28 because I love the body style, but I am finding it really hard to find one for a good price. I'll probably get one tomorrow that I found. 300hp, mint condition, but high miles at 150. Gaskets were just redone though and the engine is meticulous otherwise. For $4000 (middle book value), it's probably worth it.
  • After searching since early 2009 & finding many Central New Jersey dealerships charging anywhere from $1000.00 to $5000.00 OVER Sticker (for LT2 w/RS) due to "Supply & Demand" or "Fair Market Value" as they said... I finally paid sticker price. I rather pay sticker then get ripped off by these scams artist adding way over what the car is worth. Many NJ dealerships are NOT allowing to use the "pontiac deal" towards a camaro.
  • I completely agree with you. It's ridiculous the sticker price for the new ones and what the dealers are saying they can charge. Heck people, I would rather turn to eBay and buy from someone off of there than buy from a dealer trying to get an extra $4000. That's completely dishonest. Then again, your other option is to just buy a slightly used Camaro (3-4 months old). Who would be getting rid of it? Idk, they would have to be out of their mind, but oh well...
  • eliaselias Posts: 1,900
    i don't see what's so ridiculous, especially for the V6 pricing. I hear that both new V6s & V8 camaros are available for close-enough to invoice.
    There are fantastic incentives now, including the new camaros.
    Extra $ for pontiac owners too.
    Some dealers elect not to pass the incentives to consumers, or not to honor the pontiac incentive on new camaros, but others are reasonable.

    Possibly investigate finding a dealer that honors invoice minus incentives minus pontiac-owner/whatever incentive, and arrange a courtesy-delivery to the local beeyotchass dealer who won't?
    Personally I'm trying to decide on a GMC Sierra W/T pickup or a Camaro. (I've got an 05 GTO which kicks 010 camaro SS's [non-permissible content removed], so a corvette gets my attention more than V8 camaro. But V6 camaro is such a fanastic deal and performer - I might prefer it to the GMC sierra W/T.

    This past weekend I watched a 60 minute infomercial for Kerbeck In Atlantic City, "they said" offering employee pricing now it's called preffered pricing on all GM cars including Camaro, Corvette excluded.
    From what I gathered online it's something along these lines.

    LS - MSRP $22,245 Preffered Price $20,504
    1LT - MSRP $23,880 PP $22,001
    2LT - MSRP $26,580 PP $24,470
    1SS - MSRP $30,245 PP $27,824
    2SS - MSRP $33,430 PP 30738

    Hi everyone,
    Just wanted to let you know what kind I pricing I got.

    Affter talking to the salesman, I told him I would pay ‘invoice’ for a 2011 Camaro and nothing more. Well, after some negotiations, they gave me a final price of $33,650 and I agreed to it.

    ( I did trade in my Silver 2008 Saturn Outlook XR and I will miss it. It was very good for the most part. )

    I was prepared with the information from, below:

    MSRP..........Invoice.........Others Paying

    National Base Price ..............$30,945 .......$29,707.........$30,429
    Regional Adjustment
    for Zip Code Change ....................- .................. - ........... $321
    Optional Equipment.................$2,990...........$2,632........$2,933
    WRS RS Package..................$1,200 ...........$1,056.......$1,177
    MX0 6-Speed Auto Transn.........$995.............. $876 .........$976
    C3O Black Stripe Package.........$470...............$414..........$461
    GCO Rally Yellow Paint..............$325 ..............$286 ........$319
    Color Adjustment -........................ - ................... - ........... $67
    Rally Yellow
    Destination Charge ...................$850.................$850......... $850
    Total with Options....................$34,785.............$33,189.....$34,466

    I purchased it from Fremont Chevrolet in Fremont, California (San Francisco Bay Area - East Bay). I know, I was shocked they were willing to deal.

    Please tell me what you got for the Saturn. I have an 08 4-door XR I'll be looking to trade soon. I'm trying to hold out for the convertible...

    Is this "elias" from the PONTIAC GTO FORUM...hello old friend have given great advice ...thank you..... :)
  • eliaselias Posts: 1,900
    bonjour mparis!
    thank you , yes it is me.
    I drove the GTO today and might again tomorrow on our -10F morning.
    In local news my GM card rebate will start 'expiring' buy June 2012, so maybe I have until then to shop. :)
    Camaro V6 remains on my comparison-shopping list but this weekend I'm more leaning towards GMC pickup truck or GMC terrain.
    best regards...
