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


This is a commuter vehicle, not a sports car, not a truck, not a travel vehicle... For what this car is designed for, the execution is near perfect. I drive less than 20 miles a day, don't live in SoCal and it does get pretty cold here in the winter. The technology is ahead of the competition. The vehicles instant torque is pretty fun off the line, it is quite, it has all sort of electronic gizmos, a appealing exterior and interior design. The vehicle is smaller, but is not a lightweight, meaning the car is pretty heavy, but if you have to pack batteries, an electic motor and an engine, this adds up. Driving in the snow could be cured with winter/snow tires

Favorite Features

Passing the gas stations with their ever changing prices between $3.50 and $4.20 depending on day of the month, approaching Holidays, daily Wall Street performance, etc. is a realy nice benefit

Suggested Improvements

Cargo net for the trunk Decent tires, the tires are pretty hard (no grip) and this is amplified by rain, cold weather and snow 8/12 Amp setting to not default to 8 Amp More than one USB 240V charging station to be included (mine was promised by the dealer, but my power company does not participate in that program, so I ended up with no 240V home charger)
