Best car I have ever owned
By joncab5 on
2013 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)
I have had the car for 8 months and still have not yet visited a gas station.
My commute is only 18 miles and I have charging abilities at work.
My biggest surprise regarding this vehicle is the Chevy brand.
I am not a snob, but my previous vehicles are Lexus, Porsche, BMW, MBZ and the more I read about the Volt the better it sounds.
I then test drove one out of curiosity and was shocked at the build quality.
It is outstanding.
What most people don't understand is there is a timer on the internal charging system that allows it to start charging at midnight.
In California EV owners get very, very cheap electricity starting at midnight.
So I am paying very little for energy.
Power is amazing.
Kudo's to the engineers that build this car.
I can't believe more and more people don't lease (or buy) this car.
I think I have sold three so far to people that I let test my car.
It really is ahead of its time.
My kids think the car is cool.
They love having their friends in it.
Really I am serious...they think it is cool (middle school kids).
Stereo is pretty good and it is stock.
OnStar is cool...and included: Bonus!
FYI...I am over 1K MPG.
Power seats are missed, but I understand the desire to safe on weight.
I bet the new CADI version will be a hit.
