  1. Disappearing Volt Techs?

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Gen2 Volt
    I recently took my '12 to a dealer I'd been to twice before, and was informed they no longer had a Volt Tech on staff. They'd had the one, and he left. I'm assuming it was just a rough patch, and they'll have a new Tech on staff soon, but it made me wonder. Are Volt Techs being de-prioritized...
  2. What if I don't WANT to buy a Bolt from a dealer?

    Chevy Bolt EV Discussion, News, Reviews & Events
    To be perfectly candid, I don't feel the local dealer is adding any value to the sale of the car. Pre-Sales questions? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. They really didn't with my Volt except to run the ICE miles up by 2800mi (I bought a fully loaded dealer loaner with 3K mi). Yup, they loaned out a Volt with a...
  3. 21st Century Supply Chain - It's Time

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    We are totally sold on the 2017 Volt, but the 3 dealerships in our area have tried to talk us out of buying one, have denied that a 2016/17 model exists, and have tried to convince us to buy in-stock cars instead of custom-ordering what we want. All of this points to the elephant in the room...
  4. Volt @ small dealerships - message for GM

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Some small dealerships are choosing "not to be Volt dealers" anymore. I'm getting my oil changed at such a small dealership. GM requires dealerships to buy things like the battery lift and other tools. This year, they also have a new $10K tool every "Volt dealership" must buy. This...
  5. I tried to give GM my money today...

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    I've spent years following this car. Like most of you I did my homework, ran the numbers and built spreadsheets. I've heard the bad news and read the worst online, realizing most of it was hyperbole and yellow journalism. This is a great car and the test drive sold me. I go to the dealership...
  6. Buying in Chicagoland, B.S. free

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    I am reading a ton of stories on this forum about people getting the run-around and getting 5k tacked on their MSRP. I live in the far-west suburbs of Chicago and have worked with Don McCue Chevrolet in Saint Charles, and Advantage Chevrolet in Bolingbrook. I ultimately ordered a Volt through...
  7. Volt Options

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    I went to a nearby Chevrolet dealership to inquire about the Volt; however, they informed me that they are not going to be requesting to be a Volt dealer. Their excuse is that the training and effort is not worth the small profits that they will be getting. I believe that they are "missing the...
  8. Car Dealers Gaming the Chevy Volt's Tax Credits?

    General Motors and General Automotive Topics
    http://www.techperse.com/2011/05/car-dealers-gaming-chevy-volts-tax.html The National Legal and Policy Center has an article about some dealers are taking legal title to new Volts for the purposes of obtaining the tax credit, then immediately selling the Volts as "used" at MSRP (or higher)...
  9. Out-of-initial-release area Dealers, and the Volt

    General Motors and General Automotive Topics
    (This article first appeared as comment #88 in the post for 28 Dec 2010): As you know, the Chevrolet Volt is currently available in only a few select markets. While some regulars on this site have been extremely lucky to live in these areas, most of us must reconcile ourselves to a year long...
