    Not wild about the direction of this thread. Not agreeing that something is a safety issue is not the same as making fun of someone who thinks they have an issue.

    Will be great if it turns out to be true. In that case I'd hope the more efficient motor is also had more power.

    Can we take this as confirmation of the substance? ;)

    That's a lot of work. I think I'd just have the feature disabled. This would also not be a huge issue if you have the car in the garage but you can't count on this happening only during the night....

    Sorry to hear about this.

    Based on earlier experiences, most likely it's fob related, either because you pressed it inadvertently or it's going/is bad. The thing unfortunately has quite the range....

    For a base Volt my estimate was $3499 down and $397/month for 72 months to purchase or $3946 down and $222/month for 36 months for a lease with 10K miles a year. There was also a 0% for 48 months...

    To start with, congrats on being able to charge at work. That's sweet.

    All the comments you've gotten are giving you good advice. Just relax and see how this plays out. You'll see more miles as it...

    I don't think the two issues would be connected (which you're suggested) and, in any event, it's easier to deal with one issue than two. I'd suggest switching cars for a few days and see if you get...

    I think you're greatly underestimating the effect. I believe GM has said that 40 counts of Cd equate to 4 miles of range on the City Cycle and 6 miles of range on the Highway Cycle. That's what you'd...

    Yes what you're feeling is moving from regen to mechanical brakes. This will create a feeling of lurching forward though in fact you're continuing to decelerate. We had member early on who was...

    I've never had this happen even when driving around for months with cruise control still on. Obviously the best course of action would be to flip it off as you exit. Probably not a bad idea for...

    Battery will still run down the center I'd imagine. I think improvements in battery tech will give us more battery in the same space.

    The Cd on the Volt is already quite good. I'd doubt we'll see...

    I'd lease one now and then decide on whether to buy the next generation. That's based on the very good lease rates you can get -- given how much you're likely to save on gas the car is just about...

    Nice job. Puts everything in perspective. The back is definitely larger. The spoiler just makes it less obvious. What's interesting and surprising to me is the front. I wonder why it's so much longer.

    I think wireless charging is the future. I want it but not enough to pay the difference at this point. Hopefully they'll have this standard in cars which will make the decision easier.

    This has to be elevation gain. I have a 2011 MY which has an EPA rated range of only 35 miles and I never get less than 38-39 miles of EV range at 65 MPH.

    We normally don't think about elevation...

    But you don't generally worry about whether the gas station will have a working pump or that you'll need to use it for several hours to fill up. The problem with DC chargers is that there are so few...

    Nothing arguable about it. It's in a different league build wise.

    That doesn't mean his point about the Volt isn't valid. A few weeks ago I had an appointment downtown. I drove the Leaf there and...
