How GM screwed me out of a Cobalt SS TC

I made my post yesterday, that I bought/got the car because I put a 1k down payment on it and the dealership in Vancouver (Dueck) said to me that it was mine.

I get a call at 11:00 am this morning from the sales guy I was dealing with Jacque. He informs me the vehicle was already sold to someone else and there are NO MORE available. I'm dead serious. NO MORE IN CANADA. So I tell him I'm not happy, that I don't want anything else.

I call GM Canada and place a complaint. I feel ripped off and pissed off about this. After being told by the "Business Manager" Joe that it was MY car.

I even clarified with him that it was mine, and it wasn't sold and he'd put it on hold for me. He said yes.

GM Canada tells me they will get back to me in a week and see what they can do for me. I hope they can pull one out of their asses or something... For that price I'm very pissed I can't get one.

I also spoke with a lawyer about it (Consumer Protection). I don't think what they did was completely illegal.... but it isn't good customer service.

I obvisouly will get my 1k down payment back... I hope/think...

I called the sales guy back this afternoon and told him how unimpressed I was and that I wanted a similar car for a similar price. He mentioned the camaro.

I've given the Camaro some though and I don't think I'll jump on it, only because its rwd. I plan on doing a lot of commuting from Vancouver to Calgary over the winter (to work on the rigs) and I don't think a muscle car is the best option in any way. Even though a 2011 camaro for 22k would be nice.

Anyways that's what's going on... I think I'll wait and see what GM Canada has to say. If nothing else I'll place another complaint until I get my ****ing 2010 cobalt ss/tc

My other option is to go through a bank and buy a slightly used one, there are some for sale.... or skip buying the new car and put 2k into my 04 Civic Si to make him good again..

Any thoughts? please post...

Holy crap you got one hell of a deal. I doubt it's the 'LAST' one in Canada, but it is the last year of the cobalt, since GM stopped making them. But congrats on your new purchase and enjoy it! Those turbocharged Balts are fast. And postsome PICS! Btw i'l a fellow Canadian.

Welcome to the forum. It really would be neat if you got the last SS in Canada. It's possible, but I have no idea how to check.. lol

Ended up not getting the cobalt as mentioned and got a Mitsubishi Ralliart with the Recaro package. Pretty sweet setup :)
