Hi Gm-Volt.com,
First post here, but I've been reading the forum for over a year now.
There is a used 2012 Volt with 44k at Sunrise Chevy in Glendale Heights, IL for $24,990. I am very interested in buying a used volt to avoid the tax issues. I am curious if this is a decent deal or how low I can go on this. There are a few similar Volts in the area (within 150 miles) that are cheaper and have less mileage (around 20k). This is a Certified Pre-Owned Chevy Volt. Any help would be appreciated. The link to the cars.com posting is below.

Thanks!

With the new $5k off sales incentive for 2012 models you'd be at $26.5 for a brand new base model (after tax credit). So $25K seems very high in comparison for a used 2012 with 44K miles.

I think I would look for a lower mileage one to get the factory 3/36 warranty for a while. There are several priced similar with less than 10K miles but farther away.

I don't know you want to "avoid the tax issues" but if you buy a new Volt discounted by a least $4K to $8K then apply the $7500 federal tax credit and the $4000 cash "Go Green" rebate you could own a brand new Volt for about $26K.

Maybe you weren't aware of the Illinois cash rebate. But there are better deals out there. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply. I am curious how low I can ask Chevy to go. It's the highest mileage volt within 250 miles of Chicagoland. Would $20,000 price tag be outrageous?
Also, I have a huge renovation going on in my home (flood) so I don't have the upfront cash to cover the tax credit I'd get next February.
