A dealer does not have to participate in GMS or GM Supplier pricing. However if you gave them your GMS or GM Supplier number to order the enclave and they ordered it using that number then they are obligated to sell you the vehicle as you have contracted with the GMS or Supplier Pricing. Once ordered for you they must sell it to you unless you cancel or refuse the shipped vehicle.
Then and only then can they sell it to someone else.
I encountered the same problem. The Enclave is hot and some dealers do not want to tie up the delivery time with an employee sale. They feel that most people who are eligable for GMS will probably be willing to wait until the Enclave is being produced with less wait time. I was also willing to go to another dealer that was ready to offer the GMS pricing. The first dealer was aware that I was ready to order a car at the second dealer and that did not sway him into offering the GMS to me. So I placed an order with the second dealer. Looking forward to it being delivered.
Thanks I-Drive & Comiccolic-- I have now found a dealer that is willing to give GMS pricing...The dealer close to my home said they are getting MSRP +++ so, no GMS (and I guess if I were them I wouldn't offer it either with that kind of $$). We just need this car before school starts for carpooling, so I am stuck!
We bought ours back in May using GMS pricing. We took the 1st one they ever got at the dealer. I was surprised to get the GMS on such a new vehicle. I guess they didn't know how hot it was really going to be yet.
I almost feel like we stole the thing. A 2008 model in May of 2007 at below dealer invoice. Are rare situation, but this vehicle probably is worth more now than when we bought it. Too bad we like it so much or I may have been inclined to capitalize on it.
