I agree...I refused to pay more that MSRP...it was a 7 month wait to order and get delivery...but refused to do anything else..t.they can be had off the dealer lot..for MSRP...you just have to do the leg work..and be willing to find that dealer that will sell for that.....most who of looked and waited have found their car
#8 of 36 Smoothest transaction I've ever had
Jan 16, 2006 (9:42 pm)
I've bought 11 vehicles in the past 4 years and this was the easiest by far. My hometown dealer said wait up to a year and pay $1800 over MSRP plus $275 in dealer fees. No thanks. Found our car on gmbuypower.com 250 miles away in Mass at Lannan Buick-Pontiac-GMC. Called on Saturday to ask about the Red/Sand/Chrome loaded one they had and got a verbal agreement to sell at MSRP with no additional dealer fees. Drove to the store on Monday with wife and kids, took a quick test drive and was out of there in about an hour at the agreed to price. Car was in the garage area and had only 12 miles on the odo. No bait and switch, no pressure to buy extended warranties or paint sealant. Great dealership to work with. Wish they were closer as I'd buy my GTO from them, too.

Just about every dealer I spoke w/wanted 2-3,000 over MSRP. Found a dealer several hours away that would sell at MSRP. Put a deposit on the car to hold it over the phone. Everything else was simple. Dealer did try to push the paint protection. Was worth the drive to save $3,000.
#10 of 36 Have you all seen the prices now?

Look on edmunds.com and go under pontiac solstice,mannnnnnnn,they are prices these babies out of the roof?? My salesman was not so great--I did all the leg work,tracking my own order and he didn't or i will say,did not want too,so i know where my car is this very moment and anticipate arrival Sat,but really can't complain after seeing the prices now-Whew.

I test drove the '06 today and pre-ordered an '07 from Sewell Pontiac in Dallas for MSRP plus Delivery and no additional dealer fees (we'll see if they try to sneak any in later) and no deposit required until it gets much closer to a build date. I'm pre-order #43 and was told it's 11 to 12 months before it arrives *sigh*. It's going to be a long year. My neighbor will get her '06 Solstice in May (she ordered back in Oct '05.

sure hope its a high volume dealership....at #43...I would certainly look around......the 07s will begin to roll out in late June..the first allocations should go out in late May....25 May is the last order cycle for 06s
does the dealership place all presold orders into VOMS awaiting preferencing accordingly to how they prioritze them..or do they order when they get allocations each cycle..do you know????
you got MSRP in writing??

#14 of 36 WOW, I am lucky

I have been looking for a solstice for about 6 months with Shearer Cad. and Pon. in South Burlington Vermont. Wanted fully loaded and Red. They could not provide and suggested waiting for 07. I asked for them to search for what I wanted and they called and found the car in Ticonderoga NY, at Christopher Chev. I called, and went down to see Car. Purchased a week later, (they sent driver to pick me up and take me 1 1/2 hours back to dealership) Both Dealerships told me some were charging $2000-$4000 over list, but they would not. Got them to knock $450 off list. Best and easiest car purchase ever made.
#15 of 36 What's the APR on the Solstice
Apr 25, 2006 (7:46 pm)
Hey, are they not offering decent APRs on the Solstice. I can't find any published rate on the car (usually not hard time find). I know when a car has big demand, the rates are usually higher. What is everybody experiencing? Obviously, the big deciding figure is your FICO obviously, but what's the best rate that GMAC is offering?
#16 of 36 Price over Msrp for Solstice?
Aug 17, 2006 (2:14 pm)
I just moved in from Europe and I was shopping around today looking at the Pontiac Solstice.
It goes between 2,500 and 6,500 $ (before any option) over the price advertised by Pontiac everywhere (including here) just because it's in limited supply (says the salesman).
It does not make sense to me but as I'm new here I wanted to check.
