2011 Chevrolet Volt Long Term Road Test

2011 Chevy Volt: What. The. Beep.

January 22, 2011

Just in case you happen upon a blind guy and a deaf girl trying to cross the street in front of your brand new 2011 Chevy Volt (in the unlikely chance that the EV power is on and the really loud gas motor is not) Chevy has had the foresight to link flashing the high beam with a really, really annoying horn chirp.

The first time this happened I was certain that there were some wires crossed and that the car would surely electrocute me. I pulled over and called Dan Edmunds while my passenger checked the owner's manual.

Turns out that's just what it does. It's a safety feature. Awesome. Wait, not awesome. Annoying. That's the one.
