Hi all, Marty here in Illinois. Last week I picked up my 2013 Volt with 103k miles. I cannot believe what these cars can be had for these days. My take on it is that there are people that are afraid of the unknown with this technology and afraid to buy one with miles on it. Especially with the warranty up. That and with the Bolt's larger electric range perhaps gives it competition (I personally think the Volt's styling is the best).
The color is iridescent pearl and it has the Comfort Package (heated front seats, leather wrapped steering wheel), Premium trim (leather, rear armrest), and Enhanced Safety Packages 1 and 2 (rear park asst, rearview cam, auto-dimming mirror), front park asst, lane departure and collision warning, and also a cargo net. If I understand correctly the only options I don't have are Bose and NAV. My ONLY complaint is that the former owner (1 owner) chose Suede inserts on the seats and doors. Looks nice on the doors but so hard to keep clean on the seats! The leather is really nice, wish he would have stuck with that all around.
I buy foreclosures so I'm not afraid of calculated risk. I negotiated an insane deal on the car and took a chance. I just had the car inspected at my Chevy Dealer and the only thing found was a slightly loose stabilizer bar link ($12 part). This car is tight, no rattles or noises anywhere, wow.
I have already changed the oil and the spark plugs (plugs looked perfect!) and will be doing my tranny fluid next.
On my very first day after a charge I achieved 46 miles all electric. Made me very happy! Everything else works perfectly so far. As of today 380 miles and 1.4 gallons of gas.
My other vehicle is a Ford F-150 Raptor (13mpg) so this was a no-brainer for me!!! I truly believe this is one of the best vehicles for the money on the market today and at the used prices they really are a steal. I'm happy to be a part of this forum as I prefer to avoid the Dealer whenever possible.
