I'm considering buying this 2017 volt LT (see link) with 150K miles on it, but it's only $13,000. with rebates and credits it only costs me $4,000 out of pocket. worth it?

I've been told that miles don't matter as much as the year/age of a volt. So this car should technically still have a couple of good years left on it, at least.

Or Would it be safer buying a 2018 volt with 90K miles for $18,000? (with credits - $9,000). I don't know if a 1 year newer car is worth the $5000 difference.

The battery degrades with time even if it isn't used so time does matter. Mileage matters for warranty. In this case 10K miles worth of warranty doesn't seem to be worth $5K. Gambling $4K for two or three years of service might turn out OK.

Neither. If you can get that much tax credit on a 2017, I would look for one with lower miles.

Having said that, if the '17 is in really great condition, would consider it seriously for the $$$.

Hard to believe there is that much tax credit/rebate available. Uncle Sam buying well-off people cars, brought to you by the folks who always say taxes are "unfair".

Oregon has a $5000 rebate for low income hybrid buyers
