    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. :)
  6. 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...
