With my Fusion Energi lease wrapping up soon I've been watching the local used market and am seeing a local dealer with a loaded (Bose, leather, both safety packages) CPO 2014, Crystal Red with only about 26k miles on it for $15,991.

Seems like a decent price unless it needs tires and the CPO warranty should take the worry of any issues out of it. (My GMC was a CPO and it covered a few odds and ends)

Any opinions on that price?

My opinion on that price is: That is a very fair price being a CPO with the miles and being loaded. If you like it, I would buy it.

If you try to have the dealer put new tires on it, make sure they are right for the Volt (OE spec, low rolling resistant, etc.) or at least something that is to your liking. Dealers can get tires pretty cheap, so make sure they are suitable.

I just purchased an almost exact same car. 2014 CPO with 27k, Bose, leather, safety packages 1&2. As a CPO the tires must be good. Mine is called Red Tincoat. Looks like Ruby to me. Laid $16,500.....yours is a good deal.

Thanks, all. I'll try to test drive it early this week, if I buy I'll have to cram it into the garage next to all the kids bikes and such until my Fusion lease ends but that's a good problem to have!

Or maybe I can convince the dealer to give me the rediculously high payoff on the Fusion's lease... yeah, right!

Argh! They just emailed me back and warned me that it has some hail damage - waiting for him to send me some pictures of how bad.

Close ups

Close up's are worse! That "good deal" just turned really sour! Looks like a couple thousand or more worth of repairs to me:

Standard discount is $50 a dent for hail damage.
By the looks of that picture, that could go into negative values! :D

Noticed the dealer web site has dropped the price to $11,991. I emailed them asking if it has a clean title (not salvaged) and if they'd let me take it t to a paintless dent removal shop for a quote.

... actually I just got a rough/ball-park range from one company based on the pictures and they estimate that it's not a PDR candidate and would need new hood, roof and tailgate. Cost could be anywhere from $8,500 to $10,000. (insert Price-Is-Right sad trombone sound here)

You could just find replacements the same color for a lot less and just deal with the roof as it's not replaceable.

Ditto, assuming that's what they want to do...Heck, if you plan on driving the thing into the ground, mickey mouse job the roof, fill in the roof dings, with bondo and paint then throw on a same color used hood and tailgate...This is a very likely scenario for this vehicle...

More work that I want to put into it. It would have to be a lot cheaper for me to want to deal with all of that.
