My Winter '24 (Jan-Mar) becoming Fall '23 (Oct-Dec) would be nice but I'm not holding my breath at this point.
Yep, I was told last mo I couldn’t change my dealer for my SUV (dealer group sold the one store I chose after my reservation). I am lucky that the new dealer has been gracious with assisting with the order confirmation and price, as I have heard others are not.agirls is correct there is another recent post from someone who encountered the same thing and when they went to switch dealers they couldn’t. Better lay the groundwork work your dealer that you’ll post about them on social media and tag GM and hope it makes them change their tune
In California it is illegal for the dealer to charge a markup. There are many law firms that are recovering the markup from dealers for this. CA Vehicle Code 11713.1(e) states that they must sell it for the advertised price. Given that we reserved it at an advertised price, any markup that isn't related to any features that we added is illegal. I'd state this vehicle code. If they didn't budge, I'd probably pay it because I want my car that I've been waiting for. But I would sue them for lawyer fees, time from work, inconvenience, and the markup. And any other hardship they caused for breaking this law.Hey all, Called the Hummer concierge just for the fun of it since i have a 3X reserved and on waitlist for edition one. He said there is good news in that they are churning out hummers in light of the recent battery issues and that my fall of 24 eta may actually come sooner. I then proceeded to ask if and when i should talk to my dealer. He said if i wanted to reach out just a courtesy i could but that it wasn't required. That being said when i called the dealership the person answering was not so friendly. No hummer in stock and we havent got any recently nor do i know when well get another one. (asking just so i can see one in person finally). Then i proceeded to ask him if they expect any markup, and he gave a heavy chuckle, "Yes, there will most certainly be mark ups!" When I asked if he could give an approximation of what to expect he told me it depends on what the mark up is like and if i get the 3x or first edition. To me it sounds like they are gonna charge as much as they can! Are there any dealers in CA who are planning at selling with little to no markup. I fully expect to pay a few K but i dont plan to sign up with a dealership who cant give me any insight as to how bad they want to empty my pockets. Concierge made it seem like it wouldn't be an issue to move my dealership at this point and time i just didnt have insight into where to move to. For reference im in the SF bay area.
I would consult with a lawyer on this. If they take the case on contingency then they are probably legit. Watch for law firms that want money up front. They should look over it to see if they violated the vehicle code and let you know if they can recover your money before signing any papers.Uh, there are many of us that paid a markup already for the truck. I did.
It will definitely hold up in court even with that statement. Every manufacturer puts that statement because of things such as freight charges, taxes, title, licenses, optional equipment, basic dealer fees, and other options. When a dealer adds a $10,000 markup, this is not only an unreasonable fee but its also outside of the ordinary.Almost 100% sure that GMs advertising had small print at the bottom that said “dealer determines actual price” so your thought wouldn’t hold up in court
