Was the $345 incl of t/t/l? Did they discount the MSRP when you decided to purchase? Even I don't need a nav, but wasn't aware that you can opt a premium package without nav.

Yes the $345 was including everything, but we were underwater on our trade so we had to figure that in. We're actually paying $412 per month. We traded a Hyundai Entourage at 16 mpg! I just did a google search for the items that I wanted on the car and this one came up. There was another one at Rogers Group (I think that's the name) in Chicago but I didn't want to go that far. Hope this helps!

For the last decade, I've owned or leased a Honda. When the company I work for decided to put in EV stations, it definitely got my attention. Once I heard the HOV stickers would be available, I started thinking seriously about an EV! So I shot over an email to Capitol Chevy to see what kind of deal I could get. I kept getting email after email, with different info, pictures, and I'm thinking, what the heck is up with this guy!? I never told him to stop, and in a couple weeks after I got back from vacation, I was like, hey, what was his #??? Then I was happy I had emails at my fingertips
After setting up an appt to meet with Paul Duran, I was still having second thoughts. I had just paid off my Honda, but every time I pulled into a gas station (even with my great MPG car!), and every time I was in stop & go traffic for an hour to go 20 miles, I would think about the Volt. Sure there were other EV's on the market, and they could get the HOV stickers also, but lets face it. The Volt is just hands down the best looking one. Hey, that is always a factor, right!?
So I go and meet Paul, find out the deal is exactly in the range I was looking for (and no haggle, hassling, GREAT experience) and signed the papers right then. Woo Hoo! What an awesome car. The first ride home was an eye opener. Test drives are just not a good way to "really" check out if the car is right for you. Yep, put that sucker in Sport Mode, blasted the Bose speakers, and fell in love on the spot!
I've never loved a car before, it is quite an interesting experience. I pat it in the garage "don't worry, we'll go driving tomorrow", actually READ the manual for the first time ever for any car, and get excited every time I drive to work. Whats up with THAT!!??
Never mind the check I just got for the Clean Energy rebate, or the ONStar service free for 3 years (which I love love love) or the 30 gig hard drive that I packed all my music on and still have 70% left, I HAVEN'T EVEN BEEN TO A GAS STATION YET! 2 months, 2000 miles, 3.9 gals of gas. Oh, how I so do NOT miss the gas station. Hey, does anyone even know how you put gas in this thing??
Oh yea, and my commute now is a sweet 25-30 mins each way, no matter what time of day. If I had more thumbs, they would all be UP!
#177 of 331 Love my Volt
Oct 08, 2012 (10:05 pm)
I have had my Volt for two weeks and really love the car. I have only used 1.5 gallons of gas. I am so impressed with the price I received on a 3 year lease. I purchased it in Gilroy (Northern California). My first lease and they made the process very simple.
I am very impressed with how the car works and the engineering on the exterior and interior. The car is way ahead of time. I only have the base model, but honestly it is very loaded.
I have teenage kids and they love to ride in the Volt as it is a "cool car".
The OnStar charging Iphone app is also very cool.
I did look at the plug in Prius and there is no comparison.
I am bummed the Volt gets a bad rap for the cost and taxpayer subsidy, but it really is a great car.
Keep up the great work Volt Team. I love my Volt~!~

Hi, I'm also thinking about buying from Gilroy Chevy.
Can you please share details on your 36 month lease: how much down, mileage allowed per year, monthly payment, any manufacturer rebates etc..
#179 of 331 Lease on Long Island
Oct 10, 2012 (5:58 pm)
Looking to lease a 2013 Volt for 36 months, 12K miles/year. The car I'm looking at has Premium trim, safety 1 and premium Bose. The MSRP is 42520 with an invoice of 40652. Tax is 8.625%. I'd like to roll everything except for the first payment and DMV into the Lease. I'm currently coming off an Ally lease. What are the curent money factors and residual values for this car? Are there any promotions or incentives I can take advantage of? How does one figure the $7500 rebate to the lease company in the price of the car, does it get subtracted as part of the negotiated price or is it reflected in the residual value? What type of payment should I try to get to? Also any good or bad experiences with dealers in this area?
#180 of 331 2013 Lease in Southern California

Good morning, I am looking to lease a 2013 Volt (not concerned about extra options). Primarily want the carpool sticker and looking for 15k/year, preferably zero down.
What is considered a "good" deal in your guys' opinion? In terms of monthly payment, is $350/month foolish to expect?

Ended up getting a Silver 2013 Volt for 36 months, 12K miles/year with Premium trim, safety 1 and premium Bose. The MSRP was 42520. I'm paying $389/month. Total out of pocket was 1st month($389) + $60 DMV. I rolled in bank fee($695) and tax (8.625%). I've had it for a couple of days now and am enjoying it!
