Earlier today I purchased a left over 2017 Volt Premier in Summit White with
Adaptive Cruise Control
Driver Confidence 1 and 2
MyLink with Navigation
Interior protection package
List price $40,725

The sale price was $33,000 though it was advertised on the web for $29,725,
but that's okay because they gave me $14,000 in trade for my 15 Volt with
38K miles, for which I paid $16,125, after credits, 3 years ago.

The financials work out as follows -
$33,000 Sale Price (includes $1,000 GM Rebate, $1,500 Competitive Lease)
- $14,000 Trade in
- $1,000 GM Points
- $2,000 Bonus GM Points
- $7,500 Fed Credit
- $2,500 MA State Rebate
- $1,000 Local Utility Rebate

Grand Total when all is said and done will be about $5,000 to upgrade to a gen 2 Volt.

The salesman told me they were getting calls from all over the country from
people wanting this car. They decided it would be better to sell it to me,
a local boy, than deal with the out of state hassles.

So if you saw the ad for a loaded '17 Volt Premier at Woodworth Chevrolet for $10,000 off,
too bad, I'm sorry to report it's mine now.

THat's a good price they gave you for the trade in. How did you buy the trade in so cheap? Congrats on the new car

Thank you.

I purchased the 15 under similar circumstances. I bought in August of '15 when the gen 2 was about to come out.
It was a dealer without a lot of Volt sales and this was the last one on the lot. They'd had it for about
6 months before I bought it and were advertising it at $10,000 off (depending on qualifying incentives)
I got them to take $9,000 off and then they accepted the Private Offer, so I got the full $10,000.

Interestingly, in both cases I went down around the end of the month during the day, just after lunch, when the dealership was dead. That may have had something to do with it as well.


List - $38,135
Dealer Discount - ($4,500)
Bonus Cash - ($2,000)
Web Private Offer - ($1,000)
CARB State - ($1,500)

Final - $29,135

From there
Fed Credit ($7,500)
State Rebate ($2,500)
GM Points ($3,000+) - Original GM Card $500 per year up to 7 years

I've read end of month is a good time to deal when they are trying to meet their end of month quota, also the end of year when they are trying to make their end of year quota. This assumes, I guess, that these fall on the same days as the calendar end of month/year. I got my deal on a Sunday (mid month but things were slow) and I know the car (trade in) was sitting there at least three months, there is no local service available, and I stuck to my price and was prepared to walk. There is always another deal around the corner (sales people don't like to hear that, they push that this is the deal of the year and if gone you won't see another like this for a long time).
