\r\n Hi Folks,
\r\n
\r\nMy son is looking at buying one of two low mileage 2015 Volts from a Chevy dealer here in Maryland. Reports on both of them show that they were subjects of Lemon Laws in California. I\'m guessing that the dealer should have access to the service reports on both vehicles. I see from the latest issue of Consumer Reports that the (In car electronics) was a big source of trouble for this model year. Has anyone here had issues like this with a MY2105 Volt that were not able to be corrected?\r\n

    \nI personally have no experience in this area. First, I would check on how "being a lemon" affects warranty. Second, I would want to know exactly what those problems were that led to it being declared a lemon. And third, it would have to be a very large discount over a similar car to even consider one being labeled a lemon. Maybe someone can chime in with personal experience...\r\n

    \r\n I have a 2015 Volt now with 13,000 miles. The only problem I have ever had with the car is that after not being used for a month this winter the 12 volt battery was low and needed to be recharged. I think lemon law buy back cars do not have a valid manufactures warranty. I believe GM has the warranty info on line or u can call them.\r\n

    \r\n I\'d want two items addressed.
    \n
    \n1. Get a copy of the GMVIS report. And dealer can pull this. In fact on the Corvette Forum there are several dealers that do it for free for folks out shopping for a pre-owned vette.
    \n
    \n2. Status of the factory warranty and can an extended warranty be purchased.
    \n
    \nand lastly have you compared their asking price to vehicles listed on say CARMAX or CARS.COM? It better be a great deal else I\'d walk.\r\n

    \r\n I have a \'15 also, 12,500 on the clock and it has been great, no problems at all. Consumer Reports\' problem may be that it isn\'t a Toyota.\r\n

    \r\n Only a couple really minor problems with my 2015 in 36k miles. I really wonder what these lemons are. Since you can get a used Volt with 20k miles under $15000 I wouldn\'t bother with a lemon unless it was half price and you were willing to put up with the potential repairs.\r\n

    \ncorrection: Couldn\'t be fixed to the satisfaction of the owner.
    \n
    \nThere are some people out there that would drive a 1G Volt at 85/90 mph all the time, and then take it back to the dealer multiple times for a "defective battery" since they don\'t get 38 miles of range... that is just one example, some owners hear a phantom noise that nobody else hears, or some other BS complaint... when they encounter things like this sometimes a dealership will give up and buy back to get them to go away. Other times their really IS a defect that they can\'t seem to track down and get ride of.
    \n
    \nUnless I was firmly convinced that a real problem existed that was fixed, or that the original owner was a nutbag (or suffered from buyers remorse and pulled a scam to get out of the vehicle) I would not purchase a car that had lemon fresh scent

    \r\n I have 2 2015 Volts that are 16 and 13 months old with 16 and 18 k miles with 2 minor issues (steering sticking, fixed by software update) and a slow mode change knob in cold weather which I have have not had time to take to the shop.
    \n
    \nAs a former service manager most of the lemon law cars were non-issues but once the owner had latched onto this path, it is just easier to just go along with them. Although I am sure some had serious issues. But I would think that the issues were resolved before they were resold.\r\n

    \r\n Are these listed as a "manufacturer vehicle"-' + '-just curious how you got the information. I definitely would want the GMVIS report-' + '-lots of useful information. You should get it and have us all take a look.
    \n
    \nJust took a look at CA\'s lemon law-' + '-besides the "serious" issues, there are two other ways to make a car a "lemon" in California:
    \n(2) the same problem has been subject to repair four or more times by the manufacturer or its agents and the buyer has at least once directly notified the manufacturer of the need for the repair of the problem as provided in the warranty or owner\'s manual or (3) the vehicle is out of service because of the repair of any number of problems by the manufacturer or its agents for a cumulative total of more than 30 days since delivery of the vehicle. https://oag.ca.gov/consumers/general/cars
    \n

    \nI can tell you from personal experience that having a low volume vehicle can make a 30-day "out-of-service" time very possible. There are sometimes just issues with getting parts, even if it\'s a minor problem. And the way this is read-' + '-it\'s cumulative, which means just a couple of repairs that took more than a couple weeks each could possibly trigger this right. An angry customer could very well have exercised this.
    \n
    \nEither way, get the information on repairs and also make sure the dealer knows you\'re VERY concerned about this history-' + '-and demand a corresponding discount in price to help quell your unease.\r\n

    \nThere are some people out there that would drive a 1G Volt at 85/90 mph all the time, and then take it back to the dealer multiple times for a "defective battery" since they don\'t get 38 miles of range... that is just one example, some owners hear a phantom noise that nobody else hears, or some other BS complaint... when they encounter things like this sometimes a dealership will give up and buy back to get them to go away. Other times their really IS a defect that they can\'t seem to track down and get ride of.
    \n
    \nUnless I was firmly convinced that a real problem existed that was fixed, or that the original owner was a nutbag (or suffered from buyers remorse and pulled a scam to get out of the vehicle) I would not purchase a car that had lemon fresh scent

    \nThat\'s not exactly how it works. In order for it to be a repair attempt parts need to be installed on the car. That was written so dealers would have to admit there was a problem and scams wouldn\'t be successful.\r\n

    \r\n Hi, I have a 2015 Volt (also had a 2012). The 2015 has 25k miles on it. I have had zero issues, with the exception of the infotainment system occasionally going dead and then rebooting. There was a software update recently that addressed this. Since I got that update, it\'s done it once in maybe 8k miles or so. BTW, this car is a Premiere with all options including Nav and Bose.
    \n
    \nThe problem was a bit annoying, especially since it did it while I was depending on the Nav system, but seconds later it was back on. I wouldn\'t let that keep you from buying the car. It\'s just not that serious.\r\n

      Default 2015 Volt Advice

      Hi Folks,

      My son is looking at buying one of two low mileage 2015 Volts from a Chevy dealer here in Maryland. Reports on both of them show that they were subjects of Lemon Laws in California. I'm guessing that the dealer should have access to the service reports on both vehicles. I see from the latest issue of Consumer Reports that the (In car electronics) was a big source of trouble for this model year. Has anyone here had issues like this with a MY2105 Volt that were not able to be corrected?
