    Congrats and welcome to the forum. Very cool story. Shows how, if a car is officially "a lemon", you may find it hard to sell it! No idea why a dealer would want of those unless it was in an area...
  2. Works 100% of the time

    I've had other cars with voice commands. Never bothered with the Volt. I just press the Blue button and get perfect voice recognition. All problems solved. :D

    Right now the people with roof space and resources are the ones paying out at the highest rates. This allows solar companies the ability to offer homeowners a leasing deal where the company will...

    Hard to compare the packs given that the Volt uses, and I'd assume will continue to use, a liquid cooling system. I'm not too impressed by the claim that the chemistry is stable. Nissan said the same...

    Congrats on the car and welcome to the forum. Your wife is going to enjoy your new car! (Actually she will).

    Her situation is about perfect for the Volt. As mentioned, she probably didn't get a...

    Nice to hear Jim. I've had run flats but found them a little noisy and expensive. Seems like they are getting better.

    I can say they do work!

    Elon Musk also said the Model S would be $45K. No point in trying to compete with a goal. Moreover, GM has a huge cost advantage vis-a-vis Tesla because of its volume. When you can share parts with a...

    Another fun fact. When Warren Buffet goes into a bar the average customer is a millionaire.

    I think you're reference to ice melting in a hot climate is right on! I think I've seen that theoretically a Volt can go 80 miles, but that's under completely unrealistic circumstances.

    Don't...

    I doubt we'd see any changes at this late date, not any large enough to matter. The notion that you'd make the introduction anti-climatic seems silly to me. It's not going to be dramatic anyway. We...

    I agree with Walter about the likely source of the problem (always a safe bet for me LOL). This may be unfair, but if the problem is with the EVSE, you have to wonder why a dealer selling a used...

    This would be super great for me. Not only would it be the backup generator but for a few days each year between 11:00 AM and 6:00 PM the electrical utility will pay you quite a bit per kWh for using...

    First thing, congrats on the car. If you and your wife are sharing two cars, condolences since you probably won't be driving it very frequently. LOL

    I'm sure you're excited about getting your...

    That's interesting but I have this over riding question: Is it a good idea? Tesla releases the designs for its models years in advance and it doesn't seem to have any obvious downside. Is there less...

    This doesn't seem that difficult to me. Just lease a 2014 MY. Great deals on those. It's not perfect timing but it's not bad. When that lease is up you'll be able to get a good deal on the next gen....

    My guess is they expected more buyers and felt they needed more specialized sales personnel. The sales didn't materialize so the dealers canned the program.

    The Volt buyer represents a different...

    A dual lug meter is a parallel system where you're feeding each meter. A two pole is a serial. The main meter gets fed and then second meter gets fed. The serial setup just has more flexibility...

    Great article. Comforting that GM promptly investigated and reported in its findings. In truth, as the article says, cars with internal combustion engines catch fires all the time. Given how...

    The dual lug meter either takes service away from the house or potentially overloads the underground supply. For example, if the house has 200A service, then two 100A meters would reduce the service...
