Live in New England and want a Bolt?

From 5/19 to 5/21 the Quirk Chevrolet dealers are running a special on Bolts thanks to Mass. Energy Alliance. I joined the Mass. Energy Alliance last year to get access to more info on the Bolt finally reaching New England. I got an e-mail from them letting me know about the promo, I call the dealership, gave them a deposit, and I pick up my Cajun Red Bolt tomorrow (5/20/17). I definitely have no affiliation with this dealer and actually can't stand how they have treated me prior to this deal, but I wound up talking to the general manager when I called in and he was very friendly and knowledgeable. We did the deal on the phone, he put me together with a VERY knowledgeable Bolt specialist there and hopefully the pick tomorrow morning goes without a hitch.

For those that want in on the action, please PM me and I'll give you the people to speak with as well as the phone numbers. What makes this special is that this is the largest Chevy deal on the east coast and they have 120 Bolts on hand!!! For 3 days the price is $3500 off MSRP and another $1000 off if you trade in a 99 or newer car. I didn't have a trade since I sold my ride before hand, but I couldn't pass up this deal because the dozen or so dealers I spoke with hardly had any inventory and a lot of the cars they had on hand were sold.

If you live in New England like me, I wouldn't wait.

I heard it was the fastest color!!! Thanks NY-Rob for all your help. The dealer in NY was excellent, but their communication back with me regarding when the car was coming in didn't help them. When this deal came out, I was so shocked that I knew I had to take it. The fact that it saved me from the 12 hour round trip drive was an added bonus. It also helped that they actually had exactly what I wanted on hand. I thought I would post up to help anyone else that is having problems finding what they want at a good price.

I actually spoke with Rich Alpern in CA about buying and having it shipped, but this deal was even better than his! I hope a few people take advantage of this.

Once again, thanks a lot for all your help NY-Rob!

Gratz on the new ride! Too bad the sale is so far away (7-8 hrs), with 120 in stock I bet they would have one in my setup. Any idea how long the sale is running?

Agreed!
When I got the "official" email from my dealer 100% confirming $3K off MSRP and that they would also take the $2K NY POS rebate off as well... that same afternoon I bolted to the dealership on my way home from work and signed the paperwork

$3,500 off MSRP is awesome and as good as any left coast discount at this time.
It's absolutely amazing to me that some dealerships are still asking full MSRP for the Bolt!

You're picking up the car Sat (tomorrow) right?
Some time today, you may want to make a "friendly reminder" call or email to remind them to full charge the Bolt for you...

Thanks for the information. I have an appointment scheduled at Quirk for tomorrow. The deal mentions that you must finance with GM Financial. Does anyone know the pros/cons to this arrangement?

Spoke with the Bolt specialist this morning about my list of to-dos. Top on the list was full charge, then level I charger in trunk, ChargePoint card in with paperwork, and make sure front plate holder is installed. I hit him up for free state inspection with their branch in NH. The Bolt specialist actually knows something, he used to work for Tesla and Apple. Very nice guy that has committed himself to go over th entire system with me. I also asked him to make sure to do the latest software update that takes care of Android Auto.

The finance deal adds another $1000 off the MSRP. Don't know finance rate, but if you pay it off quickly extra $1000 would be worth it.

Very orderly process, I like it.

If you don't mind once this is all done, listing out what you went through and what they did would go a long way in helping other members here.
