Powered by electricity without being tethered to electrical outlets, the Volt does everything a great car does and, according to Motor Trend, better than any other. It’s further proof that today, tomorrow and on into the future, Chevy Runs Deep.

Chevy Volt: The Future of Driving

2011 Volt
Motor Trend Article

Soon, buyers of the Chevrolet Volt will not only take home the most technologically advanced vehicle ever produced by Chevrolet, they’ll take home bragging rights too. That’s because the 2011 Chevrolet Volt has earned the prestigious title of the 2011 Motor Trend Car of the Year.® The Volt beat the competition after a rigorous and intense process applied by the selection committee at Motor Trend.

Chevrolet is proud of this recognition, but Chevrolet never set out to win awards. They set out to build an electric car that fits people’s lives in the real world of driving with the help of our range-extending gasoline generator. 

Chevrolet is committed to bringing more technology to more people and building safe cars, giving owners an excellent driving experience through great design and practical engineering — without sacrificing style.

The award-winning Volt is proof positive of that.

Chevrolet Volt. It’s more car than electric.

    When getting your loan approved, the lending institutions use a computer scoring system and it is also based on the type or length of employment, length of residence, whether you rent or own, if you have s checking and / or savings accounts. The lenders scoring system will also give plus points for complete phone numbers and addresses for family members and friends you have listed as references. Have all of your materials and information (Pay Stub) before you even step foot in the car dealership. The proper Job description is very important – so make sure to describe your position as professional as possible. For example, “Administrative Assistant” might have a more impressive effect than “Secretary”.

    Down Payment: a large down payment reduces financial risks and goes a long way with the lender with approving your application.

    Approach family or friends who have more solid credit history to co-sign for you. After a good number of timely payments, the car loan can be refinanced under your name only and the co-signer can be released from financial responsibility.

  • If you have some equity on your home or on a piece of real estate, you might want to contact a mortgage lender about financing your car loan. Remember, though, that since you are offering your real estate as collateral, the lender will have claim to both your car AND your real estate property if you default on your automobile loan.
