    Default Crap!!!! Problem with wrong truck delivered at GM dealership

    So, picked up the new Silverado a few days ago , took it had a spray in bedliner, grill guard, bed rails, lift kit installed and NOW realize the dealer switched trucks on me. Started trying to check out the Bose system I ordered and its not installed in my truck also the FlexFuel motor didn't come in the truck. I asked the sales manager about the Flex Fuel bfore signing the papers and he told me that it didn't come with the Exterior plus package that I ordered. Anyhow today I was driving by the dealer and lo and behold there is a truck that looks just like the one I ordered so I stop and check it out. Hmmmmm the window sticker says it has the Flex fuel motor and the Bose sound system. Now tryin to figure out what my options are. Going back to talk to the sales manager this morning.....
    thanks for letting me vent...

    I don't know how they could mix them up that bad, because I know that Bose system I had in my truck added $3,000 to the price of the truck. And I would assume the flex fuel would be a lot more too, also wasn't there a vin # at the top of the contract? They normally have a build # that they track, that just doesn't make sense?? I hope you get it fixed for you, before someone else buys YOUR truck.

    Ouch. I've had sales people tell me almost anything to get me to buy the vehicle that they had ready to go before. I had a similar situation when I bought my Evo a few years ago. Good luck getting it figured out, let us know how it ends.

    Found out what happened. We called the day after we placed the order and wanted to add the Exterior Plus pkg to get the mirrors with integrated turn signals. This sale manager just made up another order for a truck but neglected to include the Flex Fuel motor and the Bose sound system on the new order. He actually admitted he screwed up and said he was sorry. Not yet sure what we plan to do. Might end up having to order a 2010.
