Hey all, I'm currently searching for a Volt for $15,000 and less, and found a fully loaded Volt with around 40,000 miles for $13,000. It's perfect! Other than the iffy beige interior. So my question is, how does this interior hold up over time? The pictures of the car from the dealer show the interior to be spotless, but I'm not so sure it'd stay that way for long with the regular wear and tear.

My beige premium interior still looked new after 45K miles when I turned it back in.

Our 2012 has the perforated beige leather. It gets regular Meguiar's treatments and still looks fine. We've kept this car longer than our last cars (2005 CTS, 2008 Escape Hybrid) which both had light colored leather interiors. I would say this car is aging well. I've had black leather and found that it can be easily scratched. Don't like how hot the black interior got but thankfully good a/c eventually evens things out.
I would look at the overall condition of the cars and make the decision based on that.

We just picked up or 2015 fully loaded Volt with the tan interior. It was specifically what we were looking for rather than the jet black interior. A month into it and the car has been driven every day with 2200 logged miles. I’m very happy with the choice. Still looks brand new

The parts of my Beige interior 2012 showing wear are not Beige. Wear points are the carpet likes to come untucked by drivers door, thin floor mats wearing through, and some sort of whitish rub mark on the passenger side front console where the knee might rub.

The seat leather holds up well on the 2012, it will of course patina some, but a pH balanced leather cleaner will make it look newer. Beige cloth can be more problematic.

I suggest getting the color you like though. I wanted the beige. Maybe expand your search area a bit or something.

Ours has the beige interior and we like it a lot. The wife loves the lighter color of the beige interior, and really hates all the dark interiors that seem to be so popular these days. In general she doesn't like the look of the black interiors and complains about how they show dirt.

Our 13 premier has the beige interior. With 73k on it now, the interior really shows no signs of wear to speak of. I don’t really care for the color myself. But it is what it is. To be honest I would have preferred soft cloth covered seats vs what GM calls leather. I know GM offered a saddle tan and black two tone interior on the GEN 2 premier option that really like because it breaks up the all one color look. Yeah, ours is kind of two-tone with the chocolate brown band on the top of the dash, but it’s just an odd look as far as I’m concerned. It was what was on the lot at the time and I was more interested in the tech and package options over the interior color.
