Even though some Chevrolet dealers were warned to not sell the Volt above the MSRP, there is a distinct trend around the country where some dealers are trying to make a few extra (thousand) bucks off the popular plug-in vehicle. In fact, Motor Trend found a dealer in Florida that is listing a Volt at $65,590. That's a wee bit more than the car's $41,000 MSRP.
We heard about the possibility of sky-high mark-ups last year, but it turns out there's very little General Motors can do in this situation. As GM's Tony DiSalle told Ward's Auto last year, "there isn't a mechanism to prevent that from happening." Motor Trend also found Volts around the country priced at $46,923 (MI), $47,700 (CA) and $49,000 (NC). Guess this is why you should never trust MSRP, huh?
