    We have a 2013 Honda CR-V. FANTASTIC CUV. I wish it was an EREV or 100-mile BEV. Honda needs to really consider what they could do with electrification of the CR-V. Chevy should match it or beat...

    48 for me yesterday, but it includes 540' of elevation loss. 2011 still can do quite well after 43K miles.

    Might be an item under the tray that holds the pump and 120V EVSE. You can take the tray out carefully with a socket set to remove the four nuts holding it down. With the carpet and tray removed,...

    I was listening to an overnight radio show and one of the topics that came up was electric cars. You would imagine that this topic would make me listen deeper. The host felt that GM used to have a...

    For best range - check your tire pressure. A cold pressure of 39-40 is better than what you have have. Sometimes, pressure drops to the mid-30s and you have to maintain it.

    For the small added expense, sure. Thicker wire and larger amp breaker is all you need. I went with a 30A Schneider Electric unit and it does work to charge a newer Leaf at 6.6 KW who visited me. ...

    Keep the PiP and at the end of the lease go for Volt gen 2. There is the possibility that gen 2 will make you want it over Volt gen 1.

    I finally hit lifetime mpg of 90. I could definitely use a...

    Once the OP moves, it sounds like the Volt is not going to be his preferred vehicle anyway and maybe he would sell it and run the other ICE vehicles locally. For the winter months, the mileage in...

    e-Golf "short range"? Many trips are under 40 miles and you can plug in and get it filled up reasonably fast. Did it have a 6.6KW charging rate? 20 miles per charging hour. Unless you run a taxi,...

    Thank you GE for making such fleet numbers possible with your care-free employees.

    I suspect 33 psi, driven at 80mph at all times (even when parked), driven only in winter (it is MN after all) ...

    I really do like the Voltscreen.

    Perfect fit, makes the lower grille look better and simple solution to what everyone needs - a little better protection for the radiator that will not be covered...

    I have noticed with my 2011 over the two years of ownership is that it got better range and mpg after being driven 20-25k miles and broken in. Bearing seals loosen a bit, etc. Also, check your tire...

    Kind of bad service. Battery cool when work done? They can get battery temp with an OBD device attached. Sounds like they want to keep it overnight and make you do two more trips. How about they...

    These dealer auctions would make more money selling Volts if they would let the general public in there to bid them up and buy direct.

    Nissan - dealer wants to charge

    A local dealer wanted to make a Nissan Leaf driver pay for charging who stopped in to charge his leaf there. Because he didn't buy the car at that dealership. I find that to be just one more...

    Pretty good price but the only glitch is you can't get an extended warranty now. The car was $39k or more new at the time.

    My 2011 is at 42500 miles and drives like new. They should be able to...

    Pretty big items. They look a bit like they could be involved in the headrest insert points. Or some new Volt based yard horseshoes.

    2 gallons of gas and 80+ miles on my Volt when I had them install a gas tank pressure pump recently. They said they had to drive it a lot because of resetting the computer after the fix. In terms...
