So they are giving you about 13K for your Volt. If your happy with that, go for it ( you don't provide any info on the 2014 )

Its a white base car with 9k miles. I am not happy but I have found no better deals in NC. Trying to sell it has gone no where. Look at the map of NC East of I-95...not exactly a metropolis. This deal forced me to drive 90 miles.

So they are not giving you anything for your '14--or the price of the 16500 is AFTER your trade-in? Obviously 16,500 is a helluva deal for a NEW '17.

By the way, when you say '17 "base"--does it not even have comfort? Or leather? I see a lot of base volts with cloth + comfort.

Either way, here's the deal I would push for:

28K (minimum) for '17
-13K trade-in
-550 GM
subtotal: $14,450 (plus tax/tags, doc fee only)
-$7,500 tax credit

Make sure you get the number they are charging you for the car itself. I've seen some base LTs near me advertised for less than 27K, but since you don't have any around you settle for 28k (after they reject your 27K offer).

Your getting a good discount on the 2017 and typical trade-in , so I don't see any reason to say no to the deal, its really what make you happy!

I would be happier at 15k OTD but I have not been able to find it within 200 miles of Greenville NC
RE: 28k for a 2017 Volt would be a neat find within 200 miles of Greenville NC If you know of a dealership that you think will take that amount for 2017 Volt please let me know.

Just because you read one person may get a deal like that, does not mean you can. Your issue is your down to 8 days to make a deal if you want the 7500 credit and not wait another year for it! I think the dealers from here to the end of the year aren't as highly motivated knowing its the best time of the year for Volt sales.

If you're willing to drive an additional 36 miles outside your radius, Ted Britt in Sterling VA has an LT listed for a little over 28k: http://www.tedbritt.com/inventory/?make=Chevrolet&model=Volt&ref=quick-search&sort=price_asc&salesclass=New

At the very least, you can use the listing to argue for a better price. If you go another 20 or so miles North, Ourisman is advertising some in the 27k range.

Sounds like a fair deal. Of course when folks ask these kinds of questions on public forums there are always folks claiming they can do better. Every deal and buyer is different if your happy that's all that should matter.

BTW just the fact you can upgrade to a Gen II for not a lot of money should be enough to convince you to move.
