So I was in my dealership today checking on the status of my Volt. (and complaining about the ABS light on my Sierra that was supposed to be fixed last week)
They've got a couple 2012s; a loaded Cyber Gray in the lot (which I test drove a day after the PDI in May) and a basic Summit White that's been sitting in the showroom for at least a month. After oogling the white one for a few minutes, I wanted to check out the trunk, since it's about the only part of the car I've never really inspected. Oops, dead AGM...
I've got an appointment on Wednesday for the ABS issue, so I'll report back on the Volt. Doesn't help to sell them in that condition.
I know they won't want to put miles on it, but I'm guessing they could run down the traction battery with the HVAC system, then do the 15 minute charge-window trick (plus having the cord attached in the showroom is a great icebreaker for potential customers...)
