So I came across a deal I felt was too good to pass up. New 2018 Volt Premier 60 miles on odometer all boxes checked (except blackout package) including ACC Satin Steel Metallic MSRP $41060 marked down to $33,800. Dealership had it listed as pre-owned which it wasn't and was sold to me new (tax credit eligible). I traded in my 2013 Volt, which I put 34,800 miles on the 2013, but considering what I paid for it their offer was fair. What a upgrade from my 2013! Unfortunately, it was just off the truck. I will be able to drive it home Monday.

Edit: Ok, after a little online searching looks like my price was in the ballpark. Oh well, I am happy with it.

Thanks. I've been partial to the Gen1 style, but once I drove the gen2 I decided it was time to upgrade. Gen1 is a great car and some would argue better built. I planned on driving it for a long time, but with my young kids the middle seat will work well in a pinch. Also, ACC will definitely come in handy. I considered a Bolt. However, the charging infrastructure isn't there for my commute, no ACC, and driver seat is uncomfortable. The model 3 was on the radar, but larger cash outlay. I love my wife (HA!). It really is sad Chevy has done such a poor job marketing the Volt. Faster charging and power seats of the 2019 would have been nice, but the price was right for this 18'. Can't wait for Monday!

I don't know - Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me . . . . assuming you qualify for the full $7500

Well I just recently got the car home and plugged it in. Adaptive Cruise home was great! This car is such a leap from the previous generation. Going to take some time learning all that’s new.

Congrads on your 2018 purchase. We traded in our 2014 Volt for a new 2016 Volt Premier in July 2016. To me the difference is night and day with our 2016 over the 2014 Volt. With the 2014 Volt electric range was well under 50 miles in summer, and about 30 miles in the dead of winter. Gas only mpg was at best under ideal conditions was mid 40's mpg's.

The 2016 Volt is quicker, handles better, electric range even in the dead of winter is always over 40 miles, and in summer 60+ miles, with several trips over 70 miles just on electric. Gas only, using good ole 87 octane regular grade, no more premium gas as required with the 2014, has been over well 50 mpg for the last 6 months. We also use the gas engine more than most owners, nearly 15,000 miles. This month its over 59 mpg just on gas for Aug. 2018 and for 45,000 miles lifetime, gas and electric, is over 147 mpg's.

I am looking forward for what the Gen 3 Volt will have to offer...
