2014 Volt Rocks!

Vehicle2014 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)
ReviewWe purchased a new Volt after careful contemplation and evaluation of alternatives available.
We have never owned a hybrid or electric car.
We haven't purchased a new car from a US automaker in over 20 years.
We have owned this car for about a month now.
So far, it has exceeded our expectations in all regards: comfort, performance (it is quick- particularly in "sport" mode), energy efficiency, build quality.
Best FeaturesBuild quality, engineering, effective merging of technologies. Electric and fuel economy is outstanding. Here in western Colorado, electricity per kilowatt hour is relatively inexpensive. Most of our driving has been in town or local- nearly all on electricity. If we drive it 40 miles per day every day, our monthly electric bill will increase by 15 dollars. We have used about one gallon of gas over the course of our first month of driving. We love the onboard generator (engine) that allows us to take the car on cross country trips.
Worst FeaturesQuicker charge time would be nice. Extend the electric only range from approximately 40 miles to 60 or more per charge.
