After 6 months - 308 mpg
By igh on


2012 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)


Currently at 4500 miles with 14.6 gallons spent. Have not visited the dealer once after buying. Oil life is at 96%. Looks like first maintenance will be after 2-3 years other than the tire rotation. Will buy one more pure EV soon. Bye bye Shell/Chevron/Exxon.

Best Features

No gas bill. Buttery smooth in electric mode. Seamless switching from electric to gas. No range anxiety. Solar panels on roof lets us drive for free. Onstar remote access to vehicle data.

Worst Features

Remove front air dam - only scrapes, no benefit in city mileage. Make it a 5 seater. Increase battery range to 100 miles. Reduce price 10K.
