    Picking up my new car today!

    These moments come few and far between for me...but I am going to be leaving soon to pick up my brand new 2013 Chevy Volt! I decided to go with a lease since the technology is still changing so quickly, and in it's infancy. I also couldn't pass up the $3,000 offer from GM Flex Card and the awesome lease rate that I got! I will post pics when I get her!

    Leather or cloth? I like the circuit pattern in the cloth seats.

    Can you share the lease deal and the final cost minus tax and tags? Thanks and I believe you made a very smart choice. I believe the volt to be a wonderful car to drive. I have marveled at this vehicle every time I drive one.

    Since it's our commuter car, we went with cloth. Yeah, I like the pattern also. I didn't like the white trim so I got the Pebble Beige.

    I'll have to dig that up, but between the GM Card rebates I got, plus the $1,000 down I put (including first months payment, tax, tags, etc), It came to $252 a month for 36 months with 12K miles a year.

    Thanks! Teaching has been keeping be super busy, am I trying to get back to my normal posting routine here. I will absolutely do that. So far, I am extremely impressed especially with the ride and handling aspect of the car.

    Your wife's utterly absolutely excellent taste dwarfs yours as Jupiter dwarfs Phobos. But buck up, Bucky, you're getting lots of accolades for supporting GM regardless, and I see your bonus check from GMI didn't bounce, so once again, congrats!

    Yes. I hope his neighbors don't report him to any of The Watchers due to their Conspicuous Consumption of Wealth Automotive.
