That's around the prices I'm seeing in Oregon, but we have $2,500 rebate available if purchased through a dealership. Lots of EVs being shipped up north from CA due to our subsidy of used vehicles. I'd say the majority of the inventory is from out of state, as many have HOV stickers.Lots of Bolts in the SF Bay Area with 32-36k miles for ~ $14.5k . (LTs)
So difficult to forecast... In support of it falling further:Inventory for used Bolts has plummeted in recent days, with only ~30 in all of Oregon showing in Car Gurus. This is about 1/4 of the inventory when I first started tracking 6 weeks ago. Depreciation is still halted. Leases returns are still accumulating during the stop sale, so the longer that lasts, the more built up inventory that will flood the market at once.
Any predictions for how low pricing might go for a 2017 LT? Could a flood of inventory drive prices as low as $10k? I'd buy one in a heartbeat. Heck, maybe I'd buy 2.
that is why we took the plunge. I’ve been monitoring pricing and availability of phev’s and EV’s for the past 6 months and noticed that prices were going up on some, with availability decreasing as if someone is snatching them up.Agreed, or whenever the recall fixes are fully-implemented. I still think this is the time to buy cause they’ll bounce back shortly.
If the 2017-2018 fix happens at the time i type this, then they will be on the market in about 30 days. When the 2019 patch dropped, "early adopters" were getting it a week or two later. its going to take a while to flash 20k-30k 2017-2018 off lease cars.In the market for a used Bolt. Any idea when more inventory will hit the market? Price has gone up considerably since we first looked in Feb.
Since the 2019 model year is getting fixed first, it may be a good proxy for knowing the lead time between the remedy being available and vehicle inventory increasing.In the market for a used Bolt.

That's a valid concern, but if it has been sitting at 40% charge and mild weather, not a big deal...Thanks guys! Guess I'll keep my eye on the 2017 bug fix. I know when I was looking earlier this year, I'd found a few Bolts at <$13k, and a lot at <$15k. Now almost everything is >$16k.
I really loved my old 2017 Bolt, but they wanted nearly $30k to keep it at least end. My wife needs a new car by the start of August, so hopefully inventory levels will be back up before then. I did find one locally for $14k, but the mileage is higher than I'd like, and its been sitting on a lot for a LONG time, and I'm worried the battery hasn't been kept up. Especially since this is a 3rd party used lot that doesn't specialize in EVs.
Odds are better than buying from grandpa that didnt drive it over the winter and left it plugged in at 100%. For long term storage i have to discharge packs to at least 40%, and half the time when i take them out a year or two later, they have 10-15% charge. Still test brand new.That's a valid concern, but if it has been sitting at 40% charge and mild weather, not a big deal...
I cant find squat, at almost any price. Even the 2017 LT's listed for $18-19k, are just GONE. Like why on earth did someone buy a pre fix 2017 LT from a kia lot with 22k on it and a $250 set of coopers, for $18,500, and it sold in 24 hours.
