  1. While I was an admirer of the engineering of the Volt, I wouldn’t have bought my 2012 Volt if it had not had the extended range generator and a hatchback (needed for occasional large items and for my...

    And, of course, not all lies are Republican nor do all Republicans lie (says me, a Republican Volt owner). :)

    My sympathy to those who must lust after HOV stickers. What a terrible way to live!

    For some, there’s another way to live. I work for a company all of whose employees work via the Internet....

    By that same logic, if I’m driving uphill and back off on the accelerator, should the brake lights go on?

    Sport mode does NOT provide extra power or acceleration. It modifies the programming of accelerator pedal input so that relatively small depression of the pedal produces a greater amount of...

    Look at it this way: you are ahead in that game. If you had a Humvee, you would buy lots of gas and so get credits on your card. But you would be spending $20 for every $1 of rebate. Stick with the...

    Having read the interview, my comment is that Ross’ hypothesis didn’t result from research. It’s meaningless fluff.

    Most of the countries he mentions have oil-poor counterparts that have similar...

    That was the appropriate response by the Volt Advisor. You complained about the performance of two systems in the car. Your car is under warranty, and the your dealer has the equipment and personnel...

    I won't comment about refrigerants. But I will comment that some of the crusades to remove substances because of risks to health or the environment have been misguided. For example, Greenpeace...

    Dealers are variable. I've had excellent service at Curry Auto Center in Bloomington, Indiana. My 2012 Volt had a couple of rattles when I picked it up. The dealer made adjustments and rattles were...

    As an old chemist (an elderly one, too), my guess is that ERDTT wasn't made optional for reasons of the chemistry and physics of battery management at low temperatures. You do want your Volt's...

    I think the Volt engineering decisions for handling temperature extremes were pretty good.

    Yeah, there are some things about which we have no choice (at least currently), like living in 1g...

    That certainly hasn't been my experience. Next month I'll have had my 2012 Volt for two years. There were minor rattles when I picked it up, fixed by the dealer. The charge door got sticky. Fixed by...

    I disagree with the comment that the 120 volt EVSE supplied with the Volt isn't up to the task of daily charging. Since April, 2012 my Volt--which is parked outside and so exposed to sun, rain, ice...

    No, I wouldn't buy a BEV with 200 or 300 mile range. Although most of my driving in my 2012 Volt is entirely on battery power, there are times when I may need to make long trips, and I don't want to...

    I did have a sticky charge door, and the engine light came on as a result. Called OnStar and was told not to worry, but to take it to the dealer when convenient. In the meantime, I was able to open...

    When I drive to a distant city to shop, pick someone up at at the airport or whatever, I leave home in Mountain Mode, starting with a full charge in my 2012 Volt (no Hold button in that MY). Thus,...
