My old Volt is for sale at Lee Chevrolet in Washington NC. It is a base white 2014 but the kicker is it only has 9k miles and almost all on battery. It is going to be a great deal for someone who drives a lot. Average miles on a 2014 would be between 30k and 45k miles. If you drive a lot you could put those miles on the car with out hurting it's value too much. Think of it like this. Assume you drive 25k a year.. In two years the car would only have 60k miles on it. It would be 5 years old and the miles would still be on the low side of average. My dad drove the car very little as you can see by the numbers. It was never in any kind of accident and it always sat under a shelter. It's going to be a great car for someone. Do not pay attention to what he is asking online. Make him a reasonable offer based on what they are going for and you will have a car. I am sure he can take your trade if you have one and I know they have experience shipping cars. Just call 252 946 5171 and ask to speak to Steven Lee in regards to the 2014 Volt!
Ok What's in it for me? The easier time he has selling it, the easier time I will have when 2018 rolls around and I pick up my next Volt.

Great question..... I trade regularly and I have only sold two of my trade-ins since 1976. Here is my answer and it applies anytime an individual tries to sell a late model vehicle.
1. Financing. I cannot arrange their financing a dealer can. The vast majority of cars are financed and dealers handle it the majority of the time.
2. Trade ins. Most people have a car to get rid of and I am not going to buy it. A dealer will.
3. Warranty. Dealers can and do offer warranty beyond what remains on used cars and buyers feel safer with a warranty.
4 Ease and Security. Its kind of a pain to deal with an individual buying or selling a car. It's not like a used lawnmower. The dealers make the process easy and secure.

When you get below about 10k (used to be 5k) then more individual sales take place.

BTW...Did i mention this. If anyone on here can work out a deal with Steven at Lee ( he is 100% reliable on what he promises) and you need to fly into Eastern NC to pick up the car and then drive it home, I would love to help by picking you up at the airport. Greenville NC (Not SC)

All valid points. I have only sold two of my vehicles to private parties. The others have all been traded in...

It just sounds like more of a consignment sell...without a purchase. It probably would work out good as long as you have a good relationship with the dealer. Good Luck...
