Buyer Beware!
By ronmaf on


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


My Wife and I bought 2 of these Volts in 2012. Within 7 months my Volt had a major Regen bearing failure. The dealer tried to replace it twice. They ended up giving me a new car (A buyback). Within 1000 miles of owning the new 2013 Volt, I had no heat, that took 2 trips to the dealer to fix, and then the same Regen bearing failure that took weeks to get repaired! Now just in the past 3 weeks my Wifes Volt Died. It had to be towed in 2 times. The dealer said it was a 12 Battery issue. They replaced it and it failed again!
These cars have too many issues that the dealer or GM have knowledge enough to fix properly.
Buyer Beware...buy at your own risk!
