On Tuesday Volt #593 arrived in Newark NJ it should be at the Chevrolet of Jersey City tomorrow, but I wont be getting it. The Dealership marked up the price of the Car by $1500 at the last minute, they've been frustrating to deal with and very low on GM's list so they havent recieved any Volts while other Dealerships in NJ have recieved many.
I called arround to a number of dealerships and got a lot of help from my Chevrolet Volt Advisor, he was able to track down which dealerships had cars in production that matched what I was looking for. He even found one Dealership with a Red Volt in their lot ready to sell, only it didnt have heated seats.
In all we found 7 dealerships in my area with Volts available and only charging MSRP. I put a deposit down with Crane Chevrolet for a Red Volt, with black Leather heated seats, dark trim, Parking Assit, and Polished wheels, just like my original order that they already had in production, for MSRP. It is due to be produced the week of 1/17/11 so I should receive it in early February.
So I have another delay, but I feel more comfortable about my order now, I'll be receiving the Volt I really wanted at a price I'm comfortable with (well almost, really wanted a bright Green one like the Green Camaro, but GM isnt painting them that color)
Mostly I want to say a Big Thank You to my Volt Advisor Micheal, he really went the extra mile to find the Volt I wanted.
