23 of the first 1000 are for sale by dealers on Autotrader. So much for turning them back so the next on the list could get them.perrypontiac said:
Here is another related thread that explains this. It's not quite as bad as it seems.mceb said:Yea we had a big discussion on this while back and turned out to be dealers automatically upload all cars invoiced to their dealers. These cars (most) are not for sale and just get caught up in the autoload.
Yep ... I just called about one that was listed and was also told that it was a sold order and just automatically shows up when a dealer is invoiced for the car. Probably only a couple of those cars are actually available for sale.mceb said:These cars (most) are not for sale and just get caught up in the autoload.
Keep in mind that special-ordered cars are not the norm for GM. In general, when a car is invoiced to a dealer, it will arrive on the lot and be ready for sale very shortly. It seems to be an automated process, which would probably be fine 99% of the time. Also, for a high-demand car such as this, it may get people calling the dealership to inquire about it, which is the foot in the door that a salesman may want. "No, I'm afraid that one is already taken, but perhaps I could help you place an order or show you some of the other great cars we have in stock."SolLate said:
Some big companies pay a monthly/yearly fee to auto trader which in essence gets them unlimited listings. Some of those dealers more then likely have an auto import to auto trader system too.SolLate said:
