negotiating at end of lease

Asked by Alexis Mar 20, 2021 at 09:56 AM

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I got a 3 year lease on a 2018 Chevy Volt, which will be up in Dec. 2021.  The
cost to buy the car at the end of the lease was fixed (by the dealer) at about
$17k.   I really like the car, but I don't think it's worth that much money.   Any
advice about how to get them to lower that price?   (unable to find "Volt" on
the "related car" drop down box on this site.

fwiw: I got a great deal on this: a $4500 one-time payment, and $2300 rebate from the state for hybrid. First time I'd leased, first new car ever-- but this was irresistable so I gave up my 20 yr old Prizm which had some major problems. I have very low miles -- probably 8-9k by the tine the lease is up. But the technology is changing so rapidly that a car that only gets 50 miles on electric seems of limited value.

They will not lower the price. Count on it. Check prices online and see how other cars compare and then decide. Since CG's does not have a category for Volt try another site like

This is your chance to dump a joke of a car. I would drop it off and never look back.
