    That does suck but at least, as other posts have already noted, at least they told you and didn't try to pull a fast one.
    Good luck!!

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    timg, your PM inbox is full. If interested, I am assuming they will still sell this V wagon, but I won't be buying it. It is the Stealth Blue package V wagon with 6MT, additional options include roof rails and red calipers. No sunroof.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    That's crazy, VMoose. Sorry to hear it.

    I'm guessing if you place a new order they would bump you to the front of the line as a courtesy, getting your car to you that quickly (ie a few weeks).

    I can see the advantage to a `13 Stealth Blue, but of course there's something nice about the last year of a body style with a color unique to that year also. Hmm...

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    Dealer gave me a reply and are researching my actual options at this point. I asked about re-ordering another stealth blue and also about getting bumped to a 2014 since we are so close. I also asked, "WHAT HAPPENED!!?"

    Dealer has been very forthright and professional about all of this.

    From my sales guy
    They did not share with us what happened. Our desire, my desire, and G.M.ís desire is simply take care of you and do the right thing. You know you can always count on me.
    And the sales manager
    The folks that called didnít know how it happened, I also asked.
    I can tell you that in my 20 years of selling Cadillac that I canít ever remember this happening, so I wouldnít be concerned about ordering another.
    Iíll get answers to you questions ASAP and get back with you.

    I would keep the stealth blue car. They fix it at the factory where it is built. I don't see a problem. I don't see how this destroys the value of the car. I guarantee there would be no trace of any incident and no paper trail for sure. I would get the limited edition car you wanted.

    I think there is something more serious to it all. The dealer said I had to sign a waiver to accept it. Plus it would bug me to no end not knowing what really happened. I paid for a new car, not a damaged and repaired car.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    When you guys have been ordering, what are your purchase prices in relation to MSRP? I'm wondering if I place an order for a 2014, am I guaranteeing MSRP or will the dealer negotiate?

    I ordered a 2013 OBM Vagon, the pre tax & tags price I negotiated to was ~$6,500 under MSRP for a moderately optioned car. Of course, YMMV and different months and different dealers are different. Shop around and you should be able to do well.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    VMoose, the sunroof is a deal killer. Sorry about the PMs, for some reason the forum only allows me to store 2...

    Mine was under invoice, but then they added in advertising fees. All of the local dealers I talked with worked this way. They were very clear about what their cost was (of course without mentioning holdback) and what I would pay and showed me exactly what the GM dealer ordering website showed for pricing after configuring the car. In the end, it was over $4000 under MSRP + current dealer cash, so ~ $6000 under MSRP including destination, advertising, dealer fees, etc. but without tax and title. Even after tax and title, it should still be under MSRP.

    That's what made me recommend ordering a new one. Signing a waiver to accept a brand new car, no matter how fixed it was at the factory, would make me nervous. Make a new order and move on, bro.

    Dealer will negotiate. I got my ordered wagon in December for a few hundred above invoice, which was still over $5k below MSRP. It wasn't a below-invoice barn burner deal that people like to show off on the Internet, but I feel I got a reasonable deal for a car I had to order in an unusual color (most dealers buy black, white, or red as those are the colors that sell fastest, especially black).

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    My order was $500 below invoice and they would walk away from it for less (special order with trade in). If the car was on the lot, they would go more to move it. Understandably, dealer takes a lot of risk to guarantee a deal 6 weeks out.

    I.would ask around and see if someone can hook you up with a friends & family discount, that would ne the best deal.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    sorry to hear the bad news. On my end, rumor is that my stealth blue wagon has arrived at dealer. i hope they dont bash it into a wall. I saw a Toyota salesman do that once when trying to sell my wife a minivan.
    Anyway, I guess now I finally have to sell my really sweet 2010 Jeep SRT8. it will be hard to let it go - it really is a great ride. Anyone interested? I ordered the V wagon on an impulse, because you guys had me convinced they were done making them forever. Now they are going to make more for 2014? oh well.

    They're not going to make more stealth blue. And who knows how long they'll make the 2014s.

    They can't have that many parts left for the 2014 Vs. I don't imagine this will be a long run.

    Re: Ordering a V wagon

    I really like the stealth blue, but I'd be happy with the phantom gray too. No word from the dealer today so I get some more time to sit and chew on my options. There are lots of cool cars out there, and even this one I can't expect to have forever.
