Anyone with good experiences purchasing in the DFW area?

Ive been using basic searches at the big sites (autotrader/cars) and they are yielding very little discount if any... compared to searching the big carb states like CA and MA.

Are dealers making deals in person or does everyone who doesnt want to just pay MSRP go out of state? With the Texas 2500 rebate back on the table, it wouldnt take as much of a discount to get to par when factoring in travel or shipping, but even now, still seems cheaper to go to either coast.

Regards,
David

When I purchased mine in December, no GA dealers were willing to come too far off MSRP. I ended up flying to Illinois to make the purchase and saved a few thousand dollars. Worth the $400 plane ticket, $36 worth of gas, and $100 hotel room.

I looked on www.chevrolet.com/current-deals I plugged in the DFW zipcode, the site is showing 3 Volt deals including $1000 customer cash (must take delivery by July 2.)

Im speaking more to dealers offering thousands off, in addition to any factory cash/rebates/etc, like all these CA and MA dealers are marketing.

In Dallas, 900$ of MSRP, is just about the best I could find as an advertised price. Then i see these Rydell and Quirk (MA) advertisements and its 8kish off MSRP.

Am I missing something? Is that a gimmick that includes the tax credit or something?

I don't know. Have you explored Costco, USAA etc.?

Does the vehicle have to be new or would you consider a 2017 Premier with ACC with ~ 30k or less miles? The $7500 tax credit would already be factored into the price of a used Volt.

Do you need the vehicle right now, i.e. next 30 days or can you wait a few months? The 2019 Volt should be coming out in a few months, you might be able to get a good deal on a 2018 MY.

I am open to any and all options, but its hard to gauge when the new sales prices are many thousands different because of the inventory, by way of the CARB factor, disparity.

I wouldn't be surprised if dealer prices went up $2500 now that Texas offers a $2500 rebate. I'm sure the dealers will try to pocket the money, especially since the rebate only applies to vehicles sold by a Texas dealer.

Checkout CarMax, there is a 2017 Volt Premier (9k miles) listing located in Ft. Myers FL. The car appears to have ACC. (The lower front grille is a light beige color instead of faux chrome.)

Some of that discount might be a state thing, but here in the Seattle area you can get Volts for $6k off MSRP, no haggling. No state incentives are active here now.
