I love my Volt
"This car accelerates quickly and handles impeccably. There was a "Shift to Park" issue that was handled by my dealer at no cost as an Emissions warranty issue. Everything works perfectly. I enjoy the readouts, being able to see exactly how much energy (solar!) I'm using. The front seats are not comfortable for long drives, but for my daily drives this car is ideal."


Everything is convenient. I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to navigate the info-tainment system, but everything is very intuitive and easy. I like that the radio has an actual knob for adjusting the volume. The only downside is that the front seats are not comfortable for long drives.


I think this car is beautifully designed, very stylish. It is not a plain econo-box.


I love the exhilarating acceleration from the electric drive system. Driving on winding roads is a blast.


The rear seats are comfortable and there are plenty of cup holders, front and back. The rear seatbacks fold easily for huge cargo capacity in the hatchback area. I take an 8' surfboard with me most days, with room for all my other gear. Or I take a full sized mountain bike and a bmx bike so my grandson and I can travel to new places to ride.


I have gone as long as 3 months without visiting a gas station. I get 50-60 miles range, electric only. There are no oil changes. The cost is basically my car payment plus insurance plus about $30 worth of electricity (we plug in at night for lower rates).

Waited a long time
"I did a lot of research and felt getting the Volt was the best bang for my buck at this time. The ride is quiet, smooth and driving it is very fulfilling. I like the heated seats and steering wheel option which allows you to minimize the reduction of charge from the climate control. I have seen an estimated 60 miles per charge which is really kind of cool. It's nice not to have to worry about going to the gas station anytime soon. "


The dash layout, the leather seats and other amenities make the car very enjoyable on the inside.


I just can't stop staring at. I like the lines of the car from the front to the back. I liked the looks of the Cadillac ELR more, but didn't want to pay the extra $$ to get it.


It's not a sports car, but does get up and move if you want it to. The car is solid over the bumps and is just a lot of fun to drive.


It isn't really a five seater because the middle spot in the back is way to tight and you have to straddle the battery back with your legs. But for those that do have a regular seat, it is a very comfortable ride. I also like the hatchback and it amazes me how much stuff you can put in it.


So far, I haven't had to buy any gas, the dealer did that for me. I look forward to seeing how far I can go before having to fill up again. Using electricity at my house to charge it has been minimal at best. Plus I have free charging at work whenever I need it!

3-year ownership review
"Certainly the best vehicle I've ever owned. The electric drive backed up with a gasoline generator that kicks in automatically when maximum electric miles are reached (40-60 miles) gives well over a 350 mile range. On the electric it gets over 250 mpg equivalent and on gasoline I get 44-50 mpg giving this vehicle very low carbon footprint. Smooth driving and comfortable ride, fast all-at-once 100% torque electric vehicle, beautifully designed (only Tesla makes a more beautiful design for an EV), and excellent storage in the hatchback that's expandable with rear seats down. Like most EV's this vehicle has very low maintenance issues. Drawbacks are: little headroom in back seat for tall adults, its only a Type 2 charging system so only can be charged with 110 or 220 volt systems, not on any of the Power chargers used at most charging stations, and the digital info screen doesn't have a good visual GPS mapping and you have to disconnect your cellphone from the car in order to use the GPS on your phone so you can't take any hands-free calls while using your phone's GPS. Overall: this is the best transitional vehicle you can buy before going totally electric and if you only have to do 10-15 miles a day to work, then you can drive 100% on electric."
