Turn in your junker rebate? I'm curious about this. Is this a state specific program? Congrats on your new Volt. Hoping to join the club soon.Just got a used 2017 LT with leather seats, 51,000 miles and a good service history (1 owner end of lease). Can't figure how the used dealer managed to rack up 500 miles from what the milage was listed first online (50,450). But a mechnc said it was a great car and everything looks well taken care of and clean. Good carfax.
Came out pretty reasonable with a turn in your junker $7500 rebate. Its our first non gas only car. So i will likely be learning alot through forum searches. Only bummer is we have to wait for the rebate funder to "approve" rubber stamp the purchase which could take up to 6-8 weeks. So it stays at the dealer in a private storage lot until then. But its worth it for the more than 50% off
Hope there won't be any harm to the battery sitting that long as they do not plug it in, they only plug in the full electrics not hybrids.
Congrats! I had no idea what a switchback was, so I had to look it up. I came across this explanation.Just registered to the site but I've been lurking for a while. I have had a 2014 Silver Ice, black leather with all packages since 03/19 and I absolutely love it. I've followed the Volt since concept and was just waiting for my '04 Accord to hit "replacement" status. When it felt like it was getting to that point, I scouted for about 2 months for a fully loaded CPO '14+. Found one in the price range I was looking for, I snatched it up same-day after taking it for a test drive. Single owner, always-garaged, clean carfax, 100+ lifetime mpg, and I think it had around 40-50k miles when I bought it.
For the first time I can actually say that I'm not passively looking for a car to replace this. I'll likely drive it until it falls apart. To me, it's the perfect blend between electric and gas.
Now, I'm starting to get mod fever now and beginning that journey. Tint, LEDs, switchbacks, Volt Screen & other accessories, rear HD camera, color-matched plastics,etc... I blame y'all for this, btw. I've seen some pretty slick things on this site so I figured I'd finally register and say what's up.
The inverter idea is awesome! I'd like to put one in my Volt at some point. Even though we rarely lose power, I'm thinking it could come in handy for camping. Thanks for sharing.New member here, well actually 4 months ago, when I purchased my used 2017 Volt. Love the car so far. Have had the "Shift to Park" issue, but seem to be able to deal with it without any repair work. The only modification I've made is to add a 2300W inverter (which I had in my 2007 Prius before this) and it already came in handy when we lost power in my neighborhood during the Superbowl. I have a 3.2kW solar system that seems to be handling my average driving along with my mostly minimal home energy need.
