I spent the past few nights trying to find my new Dmax truck. Unfortunately, I am having some trouble trying to find the exact vehicle I am looking for. I realize that one of the main problems is that I am looking for a unique combination, that and trying to find a LB7.


2500HD, Crew Cab, Short Bed, 4WD, Dmax / Allison, with a manual transfercase.


The manual transfercase is the really hard thing to find.


Anyway, the GMBuypower.com takes forever and only allows a somewhat limited search. Most of the other sites, (cars.com, KBB, Edmunds, GM, etc... ) all point back to the same GMBuyPower web site.


Which way do you guys search for new vehicles ??? I realize that this may be a unique problem, but just looking for a different way.

Heres how I did it. Call a dealer in the middle of knowhere. Tell him youve called 64 dealers. Make sure he's far enough away so he knows you are not going to drive out and buy it from him. Ask him if he can help you and do a dealer search. They can search every dealer in the U.S.

I got my truck in 15 minutes and it was 70 miles away. The out of town dealer told me where it was.

I just asked the dealer to find mine, and within a hour I had 7 trucks located.

A few things I should note: I've tried the locals, and they have found a few truck ... the problem is that all of these trucks are someones ordered trucks. Most dealers are not stocking the manual transfercase trucks on their lots. I have tried to target areas where I think they might have a few but each one I call on, the dealer says that the trucks are spoken for (i.e. this is someones truck which they have waited many weeks for!!!!)


Anyway, I am located around central IL, but have been looking from Ohio to Nebraska. It just takes forever using all of the available search tools that I know about. Just trying to find a better way .....

Call these dealers and ask to speak to the Fleet manager. If they don't have a Fleet Manager ask for the sales manager. Give them the VIN and work your deal.....Both have been in stock for over 60 days....

martyb,


thanks for the links, but I get an error when I tried them

Do you have to login in order to use them ??? Curious as to what they have for options and what color they are. Colors wise, Red is prefered, but the blacks and blue are OK too. As long as they have the charcoal interior.


Thanks for your help,

I also noticed that trying to find these dealerships on the GMBuyPower.com website does not work. Do some dealers not get put into the system while others are not listed???? This maybe why I am having a hard time finding a truck

Two dealers have told me GMbuypower is more up to date than the dealer system.
