So, I don't get it...you can or cannot get GMS with the GTO? Is there any official information from GM on this? Seems like every dealer is going to say something different. Is there any GM site where we can check GM's policy, not individual dealers?:confused:

GMS is up to the dealer if they want to offer it or not. I'm a college buddy with the owner of the dealer that I'm getting my car from so he is letting my buy it for this price. This is the GMS price right from the GM pricing system, I forget the proper name for that system. If a dealer is telling you that there isn't a GMS price for a GTO they are not telling you the truth.

But, if I'm entitled to GMS because my dad works for GM, the dealer cannot decide to not give me GMS pricing. It's strictly based on whether or not GM decides to allow GMS. For example, GM sometimes does not allow GMS for Corvettes. So, my question is not if the dealer wants to give you GMS but if GM policy is for GMS to be applicable on the GTO. (this is my understanding of GMS anyway)

Am I wrong? Can someone clarify for me?:confused:

A dealer isn't obligated to sell a vehicle at GMS, it is up to dealer to decide if they want to sell the vehicle at GMS. THere isn't any rules that force a dealer to participate with GMS. You can get GMS on Corvettes, any model coupe, vert or Z06.


YES...GM has issued a GMS price on the GTO and it's $29,595 forthe automatic.

Hey Chotton, what dealer are you going though? I am surprised they are participating in the GMS pricing for the new GTO.

I am seriously considering getting one in Yellow Jacket (I would pinstripe it red) when my lease expires and I live in Macomb, Mi.

I just checked the GM Family First web site and they don't even have the MSRP updated on there yet, can you tell me where I can find the GMS info. I'm sure my dealer isn't going to believe me when I tell him "trust me the gms price is $29,595" but if I can print something out for him he'll have to. He already told me if there was a GMS he'd honor it.

I'm going through a dealer in Wisconsin. My very good college buddy owns the store. Mine is the only one that he was allocated.

Your dealer can now pull it up on his computer system. If he says he can't then do this..:slap:

GMS

What is happening is this: Your dealer,an old friend!!!, is selling you the car at NO PROFIT. He is not going to get the 5% back from GM. That is how it works

sd455ta,
I think your wrong on the 5%. My Dealer is my Cousin and one of my best freinds is a big Chevy Dealer and sells alot of Vettes. They have both told me the same story on the 5%. I'll bet if Chottons buddy didn't get his 5% that he wouldn't be getting it for that price!

If GM puts a GMS price into the system any dealer that honors the GMS price will get their money from GM. All I know is what I'm paying for the car and it the GMS price!

I have been buying using GMS for 25 years and have bought 7 or 8 cars and trucks. What they tell me is GMC allows you to purchase at the GMS pricing but its the dealers option to sell the vehicle at what ever pricing he wants to. The first couple of Pontiac dealers I saw said "no way" we are getting to few of the GTO's to sell it at GMS pricing, and a couple wanted above the sticker. But I did buy my GTO at GMS, so there are some of the dealers that will allow it.

I bought mine back in January and fortunately got the GMS price, however the dealership tried to make me feel like they were doing me a favor doing so telling me "that people were willing to pay above invoice". Now they have about 9 sitting stale on their lot. An example of where greedy dealers may be somewhat to blame for poor sales. I friend of mine in North Carolina, that is also eligible for GMS, was told by a dealership down there that they would not give it to him, too much demand.

To get GMS go to a dealer with lots of inventory.

I have been looking at the various color combinations and when looking at a Blue/Blue the salesman asked if I qualified for GMS and offered it to me (without even asking). With so many cars still sitting on the lots, I don't think it would be too hard to get one at GMS.
