I'm in Garland. Bought my Volt from Reliable in Richardson.
The only one that I've test drove was from Reliable (I bought a car from them over 20 years ago). Ironically, the one that I test drove over six months ago is still sitting there.

I think I got a good deal on a good car, but if I were buying today I would seriously consider Carvana.com. They currently have 89 Volts available, and all come with a 7 day test drive and a 100 day B2B warranty. This one is just like mine, with a paint upgrade and 10k fewer miles, for the same price I paid five months ago.

I've looked at them, but I haven't really talked to anyone who has used them (except for one and they were not happy with the experience). I also need to trade in my existing car and I'm not sure how they go about doing that.

Here's a recent Carvana buyer's post describing his experience. He also has some $500 coupons to share.

Did you see the article in today's DMN business section? It says that Carvana has a 30 acre distribution center here in Dallas, with one of their signature car vending machines under construction in Frisco.

Got my '13 Gray Volt from Carvana too. No issues and happy with less fees.
Im outside Houston and couldn't find a better deal using my credit union financing.

I had heard about that, but I have not seen it yet.

Essentially I'm in a holding pattern for right now with this car. I have finally gotten my credit back up to a good place, but my income is low because I'm a "born again" college student in my 40's. I work two different part time jobs (getting ready to start a third) and simply don't make enough money to satisfy any banks to give me a loan. Never mind that I have pretty much zero debt outside of my car, phone, and utility payments and can easily afford those with what I make (I have no rent/mortgage or anything like that).

So I'll probably wait one more year until I get out of school and, if all goes well, hopefully I'll be able to find a full time job and that will make the banks happy and I can try again. By then, hopefully there will be more '14 to '16 models on the used lots ;)

2017 White Volt 60 miles east of Dallas/Richardson area. Bought from Brittain Chevrolet/Cadillac in Greenville. They sell a few Volts once in a while; have a Volt-trained mechanic. Sell mostly high-dollar trucks/SUV's, many Corvettes, high-performance Cadillac CTS's, and other Cadillacs. Had a quite rare CTS/V with 7 speed manual the day I bought my Volt. Had to do a dealer trade to find a loaded Volt Premium with two-toned interior. The dealer worked very well with me; no run-arounds, and they are only 30 minutes from my home.
Recent road trip: 2216 miles, nearly all gas -- 43 mpg with 70-75 mph freeways, Tennessee mountains, etc. Local driving (every town of any size with shopping is 30 miles away -- in any direction) - giving me about 80-95 mpge. Very happy with the Volt. It is actually quite a good road car for just two people and "stuff". (Age 72 - retired). Also very happy with Chris, TX 220-volt adapter for home charging!
