    So I found my expired Carmax offer for my '17 Volt LT....it was actually $18k, not $20k. $20k is what some other used car buyer offered me.

    Not sure how much KY specifically charges but yes, doubtful he'll be able to swap without putting in an incentive...So the question to the OP is how much would you pay to get out of it? $500? $1000? etc...If it's not at least a thousand the best course of action is to keep it...Bonus in Cali is they can get the HOV sticker...Just be glad you didn't purchase it or you'd be looking at over a ten grand loss...

    Yep, swapping sounds like best option. Process might take a month or longer though. If your rate is good for KY, then might go quick. If not, start offering take over incentive. Increase until gone.

    When I talked to GM regarding the lease they said that if I move then the policy just shifts to the new state and I have to transfer the lease to somebody in the new state.

    Thanks for reporting...

    I would agree now that I know the price, it wouldn't be worth it here in CA...As I'm sure you know, you can incrementally increase the take over incentive so doing trying to swap in KY may be your least expensive method to get out of this...

    I see your thinking. That does make it difficult. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    Yep, CA-MD cost me $800 for my Bolt. East coast to west coast may be a little pricier.

    I understand. Of course you would like to have more, and it doesn't help your situation, but here is the real question.

    1) How much would you pay for your car KNOWING that you had to make money off it?

    That price from CarMax is extremely fair.
