2013 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)
This is a wonderful car, plain and simple.
Everyone seems to want to make it only about whether or not the battery will pay for itself but that really misses the point.
This is a stylish, distinctive, comfortable car that is really fun to drive and has, as one of its many features, a minimal need for gas.
It costs under $30,000 despite what everyone says.
If you buy one you can get a $3,000 rebate, a $7,500 tax refund.
And for $30,000 its a terrific car.
I traded in a Prius V (that also cost $30,000 BTW) and its a WAY better car.
I have owned BMWs, Jaguars, Audis, Mercedes and many other "fine" cars and this is different but equal or better than them all!
