    A psychologist named Pavlov discovered that dogs subjected to an event that resulted in food developed a response, salivation, whenever such an event occurred. This is called a conditioned response....

    My free OnStar service ends next month. Unlike many of the posters here, I've agreed to renewal of OnStar. Have had two flats in rural areas at night, got the car towed for no charge. Didn't have to...

    Of course the lifetime mileage is not misleading. It’s reporting the amount of gasoline used to achieve the miles driven. That’s nothing but fact. Of course, although my Volt has done better than 250...

    My OnStar service is scheduled to expire in April. I received the message about automatic extension of the service (based on my initial signup data). Not a problem, as it's simple to refuse or...

    I agree! Although this hasn't been a bad winter so far (in Brown County, Indiana), there have been days when 35 degrees would have seemed warm. I rarely turn on heat above 35, just the seat warmer.

    Motorized cup holder lid? That's asking for trouble. Much like the motorized charge port cover on my 2012 Volt, which required a fix.

    Sometimes simplicity is better engineering.

    I agree. And ever wonder why Google provides Android to device manufacturers for free? It's because Google makes its money from advertisements, based on information gathered from users. Unsolicited...

    I saw comments by OnStar that they were also concerned about the failure to locate the crash site, and are investigating this.

    One of the reasons I’m considering paying for continued OnStar...

    The OP’s premise is ludicrous. The extent of GM’s innovation in creating the Cimarron resembled putting lipstick on a pig. By contrast, the Volt exemplified a new category—extended range electric...

    I have an iPhone 5s and checked its operation with my Volt. No problems.

    However, I prefer not to initiate or receive calls when I’m driving. Most of my trips are 30 minutes or less driving time....

    After some 2.5 years of driving experience with my 2012 Volt, I’ve concluded that some of my driving routes result in range extension of almost 10% if I drive in Normal rather than L.

    A common...

    Although I subscribe to Car and Driver, I agree that the article is pretentious puffery. My Volt is offended, too. :)
  13. 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...
