My new Volt!

Reviewed by Bob C

I reviewed as much as I could about the Volt prior to purchasing it. I now have over 1000 miles on it and it is about three weeks old. It is living up to my expectations and then some. You do need some serious time to read everything about it, once you get it. I still have to go over the "Parking Assist" features of the car but just haven't had time. The car has excellent "pickup" and handles extremely well in traffic both on the open road and in town. It has all of the common features of the better cars and some that are new to me, like "Lane Assist" and a "Backup camera" with collision sensors. It is spoiling me to the point that I don't use my other car. We are working on getting a charging station installed to speed up charging, but even using the supplied cord, it is still a pleasure to operate and charging is not difficult. As noted in some of the commercial reviews, the only drawback and I don't consider it a "show stopper" is there is not much space for the left foot to rest. We also added our own extra cushioning to the seats. I do recommend this model, especially if you are seeking an electric vehicle.

Another General Motors joke

Would not own a car that does not have a spare tire. Car was not purchased. This is like a ship without lifeboats, and it is an unforgivable joke on the public.

Great vehicle

I've only had it for a few weeks, so I can't speak to reliability despite this review forcing me to, but on the rest I'm in love with this car. I ot black Volt Premier 2017. NOT in love with Chevrolet dealers though -- I had to fly 300 miles to find a dealership that was actually communicative and helpful. I bought from them. All of the ones local to me (Seattle) either refused to answer basic questions or in a couple of cases were purposefully deceitful. RE: the car. - Really love it. I bought it because I couldn't reconcile the sticker shock on the Tesla X that I had been waiting for for 3 years, and am happy I did. - Interior and exterior styling is nice -- much nice in real life than in the photos, IMO. - I'm getting 55-60 miles per charge, which is great. I've used 0.6 gallons of gas in the past 3 weeks of daily use. When using gas, I'm getting >40mpg. Awesome. - It's not a Tesla in performance, but it's zippy enough for sure! - OnStar is a surprising delight. - Front seats are comfortable -- although not powered to save on weight, apparently. Back seats are usable but tight. There's no world in which 5 adults get into this car. - The hatchback is awesome. TONS of room for the size of the car. There are some annoyances - Won't remember to stay on the 12-amp charging setting. This is incredible annoying. - It's supposed to have Android Auto, but doesn't. I haven't really looked into this yet, but I'm hoping this is just a software upgrade. - Very very low ground clearance for aerodynamics. Speed bumps or steep roads invariably scrape the flexible wind barrier at the front of the car. There are some things I wish this had. It's a nice car, but it's not a luxury car. I have the Premier, and the speakers are only so-so which seems like an obvious miss. Bose should be embarrassed. Additionally, while it clearly has the capability for a more advanced driving assistance (e.g. lane-keeping on the highway), I suspect it has been purposefully crippled to reduce Chevy's liability. But overall I'd recommend this without hesitation. And I never, ever thought I would say that about a Chevy.
