New or Old volt!!!

Postby michealgimies » Sun Apr 14, 2019 6:45 am

Hi Volt members,

I am thinking of buying a volt. A new Volt LT 2018 is $26.8k but I can get $3k tax credit. An old 2013 base volt is $8K with 80k mileage on it.

May I know the battery life cycle of a volt? How many miles for a 2013 one? How about the engine and transmission status for a volt with 80k mileage?


If it were you, which volt would you pick? And, if it is the old volt, would you rather buy an old Prius?

I have a 2011 with almost 130,000 miles, and been an excellent car. I read a ton of forums on the Volt and actually the 2013 seems to be the year with the most problems, so personally I would avoid a 2013.
