Great car
"I love this car. Purchased it because I drive a lot of miles on the highway but mostly it’s just me in the car. What’s great about the volt? Great mileage even when using gas to power the generator. (About $18 to fill up) No range anxiety. Low maintenance costs. Only 3 oil changes since purchase. Tires and brakes last forever. Quiet on the road and smooth acceleration. Love the amenities (wish it had a HUD and rain sensing wipers) Cons the back seat is tight for adults and only two can fit back there. The styling isn’t the greatest, looks like a Cruze. So far very reliable and trouble free. If you drive 50 miles or less a day you’ll probably never by gasoline. Funny thing is the dealers probably hate this care, they didn’t even know about all the features when I test drove it. "

An excellent car
"I love that I now go weeks (and sometimes months) without visiting a gas station. The car has all the tech bells and whistles I could want. Android Auto/Apple Carplay, lane keep assist, collision avoidance, rearview camera, heated seats and steering wheel, etc... The car is very comfortable on long trips and is a joy to drive. The electric motor gives great acceleration and the low center of gravity on this vehicle makes it handle in a very sporty way."

Fantastic car to buy used
"Of course the Volt gets amazing combined mileage, but the drive quality is also really great. Especially in sport mode, the car handles very well and provides the instant torque that makes electrics so much fun to drive. Volts have very high depreciation, so allowing someone else to pay for it and buying used is the way to go."

The display screens have all of the information exactly where you want it. Some of the trims used could be higher quality though.

Best car ever...
"It does things no other car will do. Drove 5,000 miles over 6 months on just 2.6 gallons of gas as most of the time I drive less than 50 miles a day and use no gas. A few trips out of town accounted for the gas I used. Then I took a 3400 mile trip to Naples Florida and New Orleans and back home to Indy to get close to 50 MPG counting the free electrons I got a the hotels I stayed at. It is 2 cars in one. An Electric Car for local use and a fuel efficient hatchback for long trips."

Off the line it is very fast - 0 to 30 in 2.2 seconds but the rest of the powerband is just a little better than average with a 0 to 60 in 7.1 seconds.

I hear it is hard to install child car seats and it really only seats 4. The center rear seat is not for most humans. But for 4 adults or 2 adults and two children over car seat age, it is perfect. The area under the hatchback is good sized but is huge with the seats folded down. Works with 3 people and a ton of luggage with split folding rear seats.
Cost

4.0

If you purchased a one new and did not get the tax credit and a deal from the dealer then it was not a good value. If you bought one used at a good price then it is an outstanding value. You will most likely only use 10 to 20 gallons of gas a year plus however much gas you use on long trips getting over 40 MPG.

A few more miles
"I bought my 2017 chevrolet Volt Premier in 2016 after contemplating the "cheaper" Tesla model 3. Tesla kept pushing the release date even though i had a down payment so I went for the volt. Its 2019, one set of tires later and almost no issues except for a few updates and oil changes. I love the car and it would be perfect if it had about 10 more miles of range for my commute but I can't complain as I drive over a 1000 miles on a tank of gas and my best has been 2400 miles. I recommend this car if you have range anxiety and or have to drive a lot. Charge or no charge you can keep driving. Chevrolet should have never discontinued this model. If anything and a few miles to the range and they would have won the market. "

The premier has a pretty nice interior without going over the top. remember, this is not a luxury car!!

I feel like chevrolet should have put a little more thought into the design. The volt should have been more like the chevrolet Impala but that's me.

Performance is good for most. I like performance vehicles and that's why the 3 stars but I also realize that the volt is not a performance built vehicle.

Like most people say, the hump in the back seat. really!!! if you are going to have a 4 seater then it should be a performance car. back seats are bucket-ish heated seats and very comfy.

Compared to an ice vehicle, oh there's no comparison!!! Lets see, just as fast if not faster, 8 gallon tank and I drive over a 1000 miles.

wonderful car
"Exactly as expected.. sorry that they are discontinuing the production. The quality is exceptional was a little leery due to the fact that it is a Chevrolet. Smooth, drives well, quite peppy. Back seat passengers are comfortable and the ride is good back there. Well appointed. The change in 2016 was substantial."

I like not having to get much gas, however I don't know what the electric bill will be but it will be less than gasoline and hopefully the electrical generation of needed power will have less of an impact on the environment. We can't have solar cells where I live.

Amazing First Electric
"This car is an amazing introduction to electric cars for anyone that wants one but is a little worried the charging infrastructure isn't great or is non existent in their area or they don't want to have to sit somewhere waiting for a charge if they are going long distance I charge at home and unless I'm doing alot of errands around town I usually don't put gas in but maybe once a month or so and the features of the car make it even more.amazing from the touch screen radio with Android Auto to the great dash display with tons of information that I can also simplify if I don't want all the data I usually have showing it so easy to customize on the fly how my system looks and acts"
