2013 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)


I've been buying cars for 40years. The Volt is like no other. The smooth quiet power is nicer than any V8 I've owned.
I've had my Base Chevy Volt here in PA for 41 months. Have had one oil change.. been to a gas station 3 time. I've used just 5.6 gallons of gas last year.. to go 8300 miles of hard hilly stop and go city driving. I'm averaging over 900 mpg!!
I have a wattmeter on the charger that indicates that the car is costing approx. 2cents per mile... $23/month.. use the range extender maybe once a month... but was sure glad I have the extender. It's nice to NOT have any range anxiety.
Been to the gas station 3 times in 41 months... already saved at least 135 trips to the gas station... one oil change in 41 months... and the oil and filter are very easy to change myself. Have not had a single problem with this car.... feels extremely solid... still very fun and relaxing to drive. I paid $22,900 for my Volt .. not to often you can buy the best engineered car in the world for that much.
