I knew if I made that post yesterday asking about the status of my car, it would show up today (thank you everyone for the help though!). Today on my way home from lunch with the boyfriend I decided to drop by the Saturn dealership because I had been told there was going to be a silver Sky there for test driving and I thought I'd check it out since I have never seen silver in person. I pulled in and saw the silver Sky outside in front, looked over it a little but never talked to anyone (didn't even see anyone inside to be honest)... drove around the side of the dealership to leave and noticed a man taking some pictures, looked to see what he was taking pictures of... THERE IT WAS!!! I did a complete double take but didn't want to be too obvious (since they hadn't called me yet I figured it probably wasn't ready and all that) so I drove next door to the Nissan dealership and drove around their parking lot for awhile until the guy taking pictures left, then I went back and looked at it for myself, decided that it had to be mine... so I called up my dad to tell him it was there and he called my salesman to talk to him about it. Meanwhile, I went to pick up my proof of insurance. Dad called me back and said to head on up to the dealership and they would get it ready to go for me... no one really mentioned why they hadn't called me but I just assumed maybe they didn't have it inspected yet or something, I didn't really care to be honest! Got there and they were washing it, I took some pictures of it in the service area... then went to sign some paperwork. They had written out a new invoice for me with the new Sky pricing and I argued that because I had placed my order before the price had went up. My salesman said he didn't really know what to do about it so he got the manager and he didn't really seem willing to budge -- I asked him if he could please just contact GM and inquire about it because I'd read a couple others on this forum who were in similar situations and got their car at the old price. Sure enough, he informed me that I would be price protected and recieve the old price. I signed some more forms and then I was on my way! It drives a heck of a lot different than my old car (Pontiac Sunfire) but definitely in a good way... I love it already and it was worth the wait!! I will post pictures when I get them back but they are on a disposable camera because my digital is being repaired currently... just wanted to share the story though and thank everyone for the help you have given me along the way!!! :cheers: :D :D :D

Congratulations on your delivery.:cheers: Glad to see that you were price protected. It's good to know that type of thing, we may have the same issue when ours comes in. Hope you enjoy your new ride!:thumbs:

"Today on my way home from lunch with the boyfriend I decided to drop" ... did I read that correctly? :eek:

Now wait a minute ... he did not even get to ride in it ... he lost out twice. :banghead:

But you hit three home runs.

Dumped a guy you no longer loved ...peacefully over lunch.
Your SKY arrived at the dealers.
You negotiated for the car's orginial pricing .. and won!

Girl I sure hope you bought yourself a lottery ticket on the way home!
Happy trails! :driving:

Congrats !!!!

You are really going to enjoy your new Black Beauty. I'm glad they honored the price protection for you, that could have turned out to be a real bummer taking away the excitement of getting your new ride. When I picked mine up the MSRP was actually a few dollars UNDER the build price I had taken to the dealer when I put down my deposit. :)

ENJOY !!!!!

I am so jealous!

I can't believe your Sky is here and mine isn't here yet! I placed my order back in MARCH!

I called the dealership and they have no idea where my car is. It was supposed to have been here no later than Monday, 7/31. :banghead:

Oh well. :willy:

I'm glad you got the original pricing. I was told that I would not have to pay the increased price. Of course now I don't know who to believe!

Post pics, Sparkle. When mine gets here we'll have to meet up somewhere!
