So my first looong post got timed out, so I'll try again.
Been lurking here for 3 years- and 2001 Honda Accord won't last past August. Found 2017 Volt in Georgia with everything I want (and some I don't). MSRP =41,380. Used Rydell's offer of 3500, plus knowing I can ship for $800 to get him down 2500 off MSRP, plus 1000 for a tradein I thought would have to go to junkyard. I was surprised, when we started talking he claimed "no real margin in Volts and the discounts come from the Feds at 7500). So that sorta puts me on par with ordering from Keyes/Rydell, except Georgia has a $599 doc fee, while Cali is capped at 80.
1. To start, I'm a bit of a cheapskate (I aspire to emulate llninja's frugality). So is this a good price, and if not, what would be?- this is Georgia- so not a CARB state. Used Volts aren't an option right now.
2. It has several options I don't want to pay for-ambient lighting, tablet holder, nav, etc. can you have the dealer remove those to reduce pricing?
3. My car "expires" in August (won't pass emissions anylonger), but I suspect pricing (and availability) might improve as the summer wears on - especially since Volts are just now trickling into Georgia. With the increased interest in Gen2, do you think incentives/pricing will get much better? Are those 500 under invoice prices from before the release even a possibility anymore?
