Why are you not making this anymore?
"This has been the best car I have ever owned. If you check ratings from Volt owners, you would see how happy they are. A great shame that they will no longer be available, I only hope you have something better in store, but I am not holding my breath."

Seats are very comfortable in front, and I can't say how much I have hauled over the last 7 years in the back, seats down, so much room!

Not wild about if there is an issue with the car that is stops charging so you have to take it in, but that has not happened much to me. Great in the snow with all weather tires.

Gas once a quarter, maybe. My commute both ways did not finish off the electric miles, and I lived in Northwest PA, the snowbelt!

Great buy, used
"This is my third electric. Car drives great and is comfy. I do wish it had a larger battery and offered greater electric range, but it's sufficient for most daily travel needs."

I paid $5500 for it used with 138,000 miles. Still drives great. Insurance is cheap and I don't have to pay for gas!

I love it
"I love the way it drives. There is no hesitation with an electric motor, which makes passing a breeze. Plus it is quiet, and reliable. I also like the 10000 factory warranty on the battery. Two of the three modules have already been replaced (at 68000 miles), and there was no charge. I would also recommend the extended warranty, which covers everything else, for a $100. I also love my red leather seats!"

It is also red, and the paint has stood up to the elements. When it is clean, it looks almost new.

I love the electric motor. When I say "go," it obliges, in spades. There is none of the hesitation that most gas engines have

I don't have a "family" (except for my dogs), but it is dog-friendly. It is a hatchback, and when I put the back seats down, there is a large open space for them.

Very. Unless you do a lot of long distance driving, it uses virtually no gas. The battery will get you nearly 40 miles, and only when that it exhausted does the gas engine kick in. It was expensive to begin with, and next time I think I will go with the Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid, which is about $8,000 less.

Dat rear!
" It's great if you have a garage to park it and charge overnight. The brakes are kinda weird, and the car's heavy weight makes any sudden stops pretty scary. There is a pretty huge blind spot on the driver's side, which I have to warn anyone who wants to test drive."
Interior

The leather seats and premium console/sound system in my model was amazing and it's hard to ever want to go back to non leather seats.

It's got a big butt. But a mean look in the front!

Heavy and slow , but surprisingly responsive minus the initial start.

Fits four perfectly, great sound system and AC. -1 for lack of middle chair (due to battery) and the awful wind noise when the back windows are down (due to aerodynamics)
Cost

Less money on gas, electric bill is TBD, though I plug it in every night

"I had researched the Volt pretty heavily before purchasing it. It was an end-of-lease with low miles and had all the options I wanted. The all-electric range is perfect for the commute I do every day. The fact I don't have to worry about what to do when the juice runs out because of an extended trip is awesome. The gas powered range extender provides great peace of mind. The car is quiet and handles well. Learning the instrument cluster does take some getting used to but it's not rocket science."

"I bought it for the electric miles. I'm getting 40 miles from a charge, followed by 41mpg on gas. I also like the car in general. Very quiet, handles well, and comfortable."

by VIC LOCKWOOD on December 16, 2014

"This car is a surprise to anyone who has driven it. Fast, quiet, smooth and dependable. What is not to like? For most, they never need gas and if they do go on an extended trip, it still gets 37 miles to a gallon. I have solar and it is a win-win."

"We bought the Volt for free HOT lane access, primarily use it to commute but find ourselves using it on the weekends too. Backward visibility is not great so consider the Premium version if it is important to you. MNC will fit in the back but you might have to slide the drivers or passenger seat Forward when installing it, but then you can just slide the seat back. Also you should try to get one with less than 25000 miles on it so you will still have the factory warranty and place for the first year (or so) that you own it. (We've owned ours for 6 months now with no trouble.) To help keep things in their place in the hatchback, Home Depot makes some collapsible storage containers with velcro on the bottom that, when installed, they fit perfectly and do not slide around."
