2013 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)
I wanted to love this car. As a prius driver for years I was so excited to have a more luxurious eco-friendly car and buy American. Win/win right? Unfortunately not. This car has stranded me 3 times because it stopped functioning in the first year and a half of ownership. Two of these times I was placed in incredibly dangerous situations. The first 2 times I was told that there was a defective part that would be replaced. The third time the dealership couldn't figure out what was wrong for days and then gave me an illogical reason for the breakdown. It's an incredibly unreliable car. Women should especially beware of their safety if they buy this car. Just waiting for the next breakdown.
Sad to hear of your problems, but rest assured, they aren't typical. Looking at the Volt forums and the Volt owner's groups, the vast majority of owners are completely satisfied and the cars are more reliable than average.
