Two options I'm considering right now:


1. 70k miles premium 2011

2. 35k miles base 2013 @ around $15k


How low should I push the price on the 2011 to be worth it over the 2013?

Has anyone had success negotiating down one of the many coming off lease, base 2013 35k mile $15-16k listings?

A coworker if mine found a 2013 with 72k miles on it, originally priced at $15k, now at $12k ($11,995 to be exact). With the higher miles, it seemed to be about right in price. He's off to test drive it tonight.

Don't forget that the 2013 has a few "upgrades" that the 2011 does not.
Bigger battery (more ev range)
Hold Mode
Keyless door entry.
My Link radio.
No Hard drive (down grade?)

Maybe I bought at a good time but in early February I picked up 2013 with leather, backup camera, backup sensors, non bose, non nav for $15500 from CarMax with 29k. They appear to have gone up a little since then.

Or you could offer $17.5k for my fully loaded 2013 premium with 20k on the clock :) My car has only been on the road 2 years and has a set of spare tires. and I could then get a gen II :-0

But honestly, I wouldn't pay over $9k for that 2011, the extra battery and hold mode make the car much more enjoyable (for me) to drive. The warranty is worth something too, for me it has been needed for blasted EVSE's

Also there is corrosion at play on a car that is 2-3 years older as well. Can't see it but its there underneath and on the exhaust.

Good Luck
Ryan

As a point of reference Tesla just offered me $14,500 for my 2013 nicely loaded Volt with 24K miles as a trade on a CPO MS.

KEYLESS DOOR ENTRY???? I'm looking at a 2012 and am assuming that it works like my 2013. I just walk up to the car with the Key FOB in my pocket and the little silver button on the door handle will work to open the door.

You can buy my 2013 Volt Premium with 17,000 miles for $20,000. However, you should grab ANY Volt that you can get. You will win on lifetime cost no matter how much you pay.

My bad, I didn't think the keyless entry was available on the 2012 models.

The 2011 one is actually fully loaded, including keyless entry. I ended up not going for it. The main two things that stopped me from are two years less battery warranty and the much higher mileage.

There are plenty of 2013's available with $15-16k asking prices. One place has 18 of them! (though several are premiums). I'm starting the contact & negotiation process tomorrow to hopefully buy this weekend. If I'm lucky I'll push one to $13k, but I'll probably end up at $14k.
