Saving the World
To me the Volt is unique among pure electric and hybrid automobiles. It allows you to drive in the electric mode for fifty miles before needing a recharge. That usually covers my everyday driving. However, if you need to go farther, it changes over seamlessly to the gas powered motor to produce energy to run the electric drive motor. This allows you to drive in the electric mode most of the time with no range anxiety. With a full charge and tank of gas it will go almost 400 miles with no need to spend the night or day at a charging station. The premier version has all the bells and whistles that most of new cars have such as blind spot awareness, backup camera, lane keeping, collision avoidance, bluetooth, navigation, Onstar, and heated steering wheel and seats. I would have liked it to have been a little longer, more like a midsize sedan. I am not a big fan of the fastback, which I think makes for poor rear visibility. The rear seats are a little tight to get into but I've had several regular size men say they were comfortable enough. I have really enjoyed driving my Volt. It is quiet and smooth and has great acceleration.
Brand New 2018 Volt Stalled While Driving
I Just leased brand new 2018 Volt and encountered serious problems with the car. (1) The battery could not be charged very first time. (2) Noticed some burning smell for the 1st couple of days after each drive (with no warning light on). (3) On the 3rd day, the check engine and battery lights came on. While driving the car to the dealer, it certainly stalled on the road (such a scary moment and so lucky not to have any accident or injury). So the car had to be towed to the dealer that day. The OnStar diagnostic codes showed, P0D4D (issue with the Litium-Ion Battery issue), P1F5A (issue with the Engine and Transmission System), P1F59 (issue with the Engine and Transmission System), P1EBD (issue with the Charging Cable System). (4) It took the Chevrolet dealer about a week to diagnose and repair (replaced the 12V battery). (5) A few days later the same symptom reappeared with almost identical OnStar diagnostic codes so the car was sent back to the dealer for the 2nd time in about two weeks. (6) This time it also took them about a week to diagnose and repair (replaced the switch and the cable). When doing research on line I found out other owners of 2018 Volt are having similar problems like mine. This car definitely has many serious issues including safety and therefore I strongly urge GM to launch an investigation or even recall to investigate these faulty or defective cars that may cause safety issue.
This car is amazing, feels and drives like a high end car, I get more electric range than it is rated for. Has all the driver assist technology that is out there. The adaptive cruise is really amazing. I recommend that everybody check this car out if they are in the market for a car. I think it is such a better choice than a pure EV, no range anxiety or need to plan trips around where their are charging stations and have to plug in and wait for a charge to continue travelling. I am getting between 60 to 65 miles per charge when driving around town. No need to buy fuel except when taking a trip. I get 120 MPGE around town. If needed you can get in it and drive across the country not having to worry about charging stations and laying up for it to charge.
