Just be sure to get the update so it doesn't burn your house down!

The bolt has somewhat interested me, but gm seems to always find a way to muck vehicles up...

Bolt is an excellent car with terrible seats.

I'm sure I will be mocked, ridiculed, and vilified, but I went with a new Chevy Bolt. I've always been interested in the electric cars. I drove this one, and it was great. I can fit my fat bike in the back without taking off the front tire. I can drive it to the free charging station by my favorite Target, get a free 2 hour charge while I'm riding the fatty for a couple hours.

There are unbelievable incentives right now from GM on the Bolt. A $39000 car cost me $20840. I had a couple extra rebates - $1500 loyalty for owning a Chevy Trax, and another $1660 on GM card.

Of course, I had to pay $2000 tax and license and the little fees they get you with, but for a cost of $3500, I sold my 5 and a half year old FRS and got a new electric car.

Seriously, if you want to sell your car, and you don't want the hassle of listing it on Craigslist, and you don't want to get a lowball offer from the dealership, Carvana may be the right thing for you.

Alright, let the negative comments fly!
Sounds perfect for your needs.
Two important questions though.
Can you see the brake pads?
How fast is the refresh rate on the speedo?

3, do you need to drive on the freeways, as this car is not good at merging and will likely get the driver killed. Base Corolla will merge better.

I hope its an inside joke. I have my eye on the new bolt's coming out but I want to see what Kia and Hyundai bring because they still have the 7500$ tax credit and CA still has there rebates. I wish the government would bring back the 7500$ credit for all manufactures. If that happens and I could get a decent car for 25,000-30,000k I would jump on one now.

Ya it took me 45 minutes to get a big enough opening to get onto the 401 today. Thank god for the reduced traffic or could still be there. Two Geo Metros and a Lada had to go around me.

You need to learn how to use your gears. Drop it down into first for maximum powah. Nice thing about doing that is it bypasses that pesky factory rev limiter that Toyota only enabled to keep this car from beating Supras.

Does low mileage not increase value on a 2013? I was playing with tradein values using 5k miles versus 30 k and the value did not change much....sad

The mileages work within ranges not by the mile.

In April I bought the last, new, 2020 manual transmission 86 in either Washington or Oregon. I paid $25,738 (TrueCar price) for basically the last one anywhere near me that was new. At the same time I saw several Autotrader/CL ads for used 2020s with 900-1500 miles on them for $28k and up.
