Just a quick hello to everybody as a new member of this forum which I already find very useful and full of info!!

2 weeks now I've been driving my own 2013 summit white Volt, got it with 18500km (11495 miles) on it and almost a year old but it's as good as new to me!!! Love the tan leather/suede interior finish and dark console combination. Got the Voltec Bosch 240V wall charger last week and love the quick charging of it!!

Almost 900km on it since I got it and used only 3.5 liters (0.13 gallon) of fuel, gotta love that!!! I am simply in love with the car. Getting the Windows tinted this week, in the market for a second set of wheels/tires since down here we need winter tires (by law) for the cold season. Might go for 18'' summer wheels/tires and keep the 17'' OEM for winter, shopping right now.

Cheers

Bonjour JFChamp,

Congratuations on getting your Volt, and welcome to the club!

I'm curious, and I'm sure there are others here who are as well - how did you go about purchasing your second-hand Volt, and what was the experience like?

Did you go through a dealership or private party? How did you find the car (on Auto Trader, through word-of-mouth, on craigslist or a dealership website, etc)? What kind of price did you end up getting for your lease or purchase? Were there other used Volts to choose from? Did you find it in Montreal or did you have to travel to find the one you were looking for?

There is a lot of anticipation surrounding the availability of (possibly) cheap used Volts as the first of the 3-year leases expire this year, and a lot of people are waiting to get theirs for what they hope will be a great deal. Although yours isn't one of those 3 year old vehicles, I'm sure many Canadian GM-Volt members would be curious to know how the process to purchase a used one went.

Thanks TeV!! I got the car from a Chevy dealership that actually import Volt, Corvette and Denali vehicles from the USA. Since the price is higher here and the availability is bad, this gave me an opportunity to get a Volt at a much better price. I was actually making a research for importing one myself when I ran accross a few ads from this dealership on local Kijiji, I contacted them and was impressed with my whole experience with those guys!! I've imported a car and a motorcyle a few years ago myself, so I was familiar with the process.

That is not too bad a sacrifice indeed!! I haven't been able to find a clear answer on the OEM 17'' Volt wheel's weight, in order to choose a good aftermarket Wheel, I'd like to be able to compare weights. I read 17 lbs somewhere but can anybody comfirm?
