#3 of 48 GMC Canyon vs. Chevy Colorado
May 16, 2004 (2:49 am)
Just factory ordered a '04 Canyon. 4WD Z71 SLE W/3.5L engine & 5speed. Paid $21,499 before rebates. Can anyone that really knows the answer, tell me why the GMC's sell for $600-700 more than the Chevy's. Lots of reasons floating around out there.
#4 of 48 GMS VS. DIP - Which should I be looking at?
Jun 15, 2004 (6:59 pm)
Was at a dealer and told him that I only wanted to pay $400 over invoice - handed me a dealer search report with the MSRP, DIP and GMS figures on it. Told me that GMS is below invoice and reserved for employees or current GM owners. Is this the case? Much obliged.

I sell Chevrolets in Fl. Here is the scoop
DIP = Dealer invoice price, what the dealer pays not counting holdback
Supplier price = price reserved for employees of large companies like Disney that have an arrangement with GM. Usually around invoice, sometines below.
GMS is reserved for current, and retired GM employees. It will always be below invoice, but GM makes it up to the dealer

I just took delivery on '04 Colorado Z71 4X4 in blue, crew cab with every option but Onstar. Paid invoice price ($28488) plus body molding add-on (nicer chrome $100) minus $3000 (rebate plus GMAC bonus). Came out to be a little above $27K with taxes. Plan to pay it off as soon as the payment book comes from GMAC. Did not really want XM radio, but man is it nice! Like the truck so far. Anyone have any advice on bed covers that look nice on the crew cab? How about bedliners?
#7 of 48 Don't pay it off!

Check with your dealer, you have to make at least 3 payments or lose the GMAC bonus on that rebate.

Are you sure about that? One dealer told me to wait 90 days before paying it off, or the title work would get screwed up, which makes a little sense. The dealer I bought from told me that I could pay it off the minute I got my payment book. It's probably worth a call to GMAC.....I have to get the pay off amount from them anyway.

I sell Chevrolets in Florida, and unless it is state regulated, you will find that to avoid a penalty you need to make the first 3 payments before you pay it off.

In MA, several dealers told me I could pay the note off as soon as I got the paperwork in the mail. One single dealership told me I had to wait 90 days lest GM somehow bill me for the rebate.....
