    Car actually. Not cars. And a destroyed one at that. LOL Took a few weeks after the crash when they dumped it before it caught fire.

    We also had a couple of Volts burned when houses caught fire...

    Great story. Very funny. Should definitely get one of Clarkson's kits.

    There is a simple way to bypass the auto turn off feature but I can't remember it at the moment.

    Impressive numbers when you see the comparison. Depending on your drive cycle it may not make that much difference in practice, but it certainly looks better.

    I would definitely go for 2015 MY at this point in time. However, some of the incentives disappear at the end of today. If they don't come back then used may make more sense.

    If you can't take...

    Congrats on your new EV. The Volt is a good fit for Sweden because you've got a nice liquid fuel heater to keep you toasty in the winter.

    Sergio can't build cars but he's superb at "the deal". FCA is not in a good place. It lacks a global footprint (presence in China) and at this point Chrysler is keeping Fiat afloat.

    Interesting question. My guess is "Yes" based on how the 2011 MY Leaf handled lower voltage. FYI its maximum charge rate was 3.84 kW, so 16A. Seems consistent with what the Gen 2 Volt will handle.

    FYI there are some states where the lender has its name on the title. In other places it works as you've outlined and the lender is the lien holder. Agree it doesn't change the tax treatment.

    Looks a lot more inviting than when the Gen 1 Volts shipped. It was nasty and cold.

    He could charge a Tesla on a 120v outlet but this would not really be practical. You can after all dig fence posts with a spoon. But to answer your question, you're looking at 2-3 miles per hour of...

    You did it the right way. The IRS defines "in service" as when the property is "ready and available and ready for use". Obviously the car would be ready and available for use if you''re driving and...

    Not sure I'd call these rebates -- and $7500 of what is termed "rebate" in this deal is the federal tax credit -- but I know of these:

    It's placed "in service" when you drive it off the lot. You could drive off at 11:59 PM on 31 December 2015 and be fine. Perhaps you're thinking of cases, for example solar systems, where you need...
