On several of these why are you charging people for an extra charger:
LPO, Charge Cord, 110/120V $535.00

I've never seen that before. Are you tricking people into thinking that there's not one included with the car?
Surely there can't be enough people who want an extra to actually include it as a dealer markup.

I'm sure Rydell can speak for themselves... but if you are looking at the Window Sticker... you are looking at CHEVROLET'S list of options that came with the vehicle. If a charge cord is listed.... it's an option (Limited Promotional Option). A dealer installed option, but one that is ordered from the factory (and I'm sure it's an extra one, as one is certainly included in the vehicle)... not something that Rydell is trying to "trick" you with. If you don't want it.... then it looks like they have plenty of others without that LPO.

Maybe it is out of my Volt that came without one... Rydell had to grab one from another car. :)

I understand what a window sticker is. Of course it's trickery. They don't have to order the car with a second charger. The very limited number of people who actually want or need one could very easily buy it separately but then the dealer wouldn't get the extra $535 for the bundle.

Lemme guess, you went to a school where every kid got a "Participant" Medal?

No, I'll guess. You're for some strange reason implying that my pointing out a ridiculous dealer practice means I went to some liberal hippy school? In what universe does that leap of logic make any sense?

I already got a 2016 at a fantastic price from an honest dealer. How I worked that out with my soft-skinned coddled childhood must be baffling. Sure, I'm not buying from Rydell, but this is not a practice we should celebrate. It should be pointed out for those who may not know better when they're here to research and then they can make their own decision on the price they get. It's no different than letting someone know the lease offer they got is terrible.

Kind of like the dealer installed rear tablet holder that Rydell said I had to take because it "was on the invoice..."

I see, YOU decide what options are "ridiculous" and any dealer who does not agree is not honest.

I bought a Volt from Rydell 2 years ago. I found them fair, honest and had low prices. I accidently handed the F&I man and extra hundred dollar bill. He caught my mistake and handed it back.

If it's on the window sticker, you have to take it. But what you pay for it is between you and the dealer. And don't blame Rydell too much, most of these cars come as quick configs from GM, and that might be why they have the extra $500 off. I actually feel sorry for one of the Northern California dealers that got stuck with a bunch of them and can't move them.

Congratulations.

Your experience doesn't change the fact that ordering several cars with an extra charger on the invoice is 100% ridiculous.

@MIKECELI Always nice to hear from you on our posts! I hope all is well with you and you are still enjoying your Chevy Volt!

To address what @dancefreak said, the charging cord is a second cord and it can be found directly on the invoice of the vehicle, demonstrating it comes directly from the factory. Rydell Chevrolet does not gain any profit from adding the additional charge cord. After delivering our first batch of 2016 Volt, we received customer feedback on the hassle they dealt with having to transport the standard charge cord to and from work. They shared that having an extra cord would eliminate the nuisance of having to plug/unplug the cord to and from work and also avoid them ever forgetting it.

Still, keeping in mind that not every customer would be interested; my inventory manager was more aware while ordering Volt with the additional charging cord. Then, only ordering higher equipped Volt with the cord, being that it would more likely appeal to customers interested in more equipment. Yes, purchasing an after-market cord is always an option, on any vehicle feature, but the majority of consumers are more comfortable and trusting in a factory installed products instead.

I hope this clarifies your question and I thank you for stopping by our post and sharing your opinion. It is only with your feedback that we can continue improving our performance and best serve all of our clients!

Cheers!

An additional 120v charger seems odd. They're covered by the basic warranty and you can always buy one from any number of sources. I guess someone might want a mobile and a home charger, but in this case I'd assume they'd want a 240v one. Since I use 240v charging, I have two extra -- one for the Volt and one for the ELR.
