    Should be at least 10%. I just say that because most cars depreciate at about 20% a year, so having a year newer MY should be more valuable. In ten years it won't matter, but a lot can happen in ten...

    Yes, going from MM to Normal doesn't always work as you'd expect.

    Would probably be a good idea to just relax for a bit. No point is trying to troubleshoot why the car didn't charge when plugged...

    Thanks for the details. You got a great deal.

    Sounds like something a software update should fix but if that doesn't work then you have a hardware issue of some sort. The dealer should be able to track this down. I'm sure you don't feel this way...

    The voltage will be 240, which is just two of the 120v circuits. The next issue is the amperage. Since watts = volts X amps, the higher the amperage the higher the watts. Now keep in mind you have...

    Super. I'm sure you'll love the car and not having to visit the gas station.

    Congrats on the car. Your wife will love it. It's truly a great ride. The head unit on my ELR had problems, the specifics of which you'll find if you search, but it was fixed with a software update.

    Yes. That's right. By specs I meant the range. My guess is that the CT6 will have the same 35-38 mile range of the first generation Volt. Battery pack will be the same as used in Volt 2.0.

    A realtor told me the the issue is that the purchaser has to qualify for the home mortgage AND for the lease. Not a big deal if your income is higher than needed to qualify for the mortgage, but if...

    I'd say it is something of a freebie. Once the AC is running for the battery pack the marginal cost of directing some of the cooled air to the is minor. It's like the heater in an ICE vehicle. You're...

    The first question you have to ask is whether you'd save enough to matter. Why not just turn everything off?

    I'd rather see an SUV rather than a sedan with a plug. No personally but it seem like we've seen a lot of requests. Still waiting for the CT6 PHEV specs. Should be similar to the Volt 1.0. My guess...

    I've been told that the only reason I have an ELR is that I couldn't afford to buy a Tesla Model S. I'm shocked, simply shocked, that anyone who bought an ELR could have afforded an i8. /Sarcasm off...

    The battery cooling loop and cabin loop share a compressor and condenser. So if the AC is needed it's more or less a freebie to send some to the cabin. Enjoy!

    I can't reproduce it. Having turned the car off and then on again with the brake pressed N number of times without encountering any problem, I'm concluding that the off and then on sequence with the...

    Without particulars it's hard to know, but AFAIK no posts have ever been deleted because they contained pricing information.

    Ha! You were in fact the "new owner" I was referring to. What caught my attention was the car getting caught in the "Initializing" loop. What I saw corresponded to what you did. The DIC was on but...

    I think your estimate is good. Maybe a little high. At a conference in December of 2009 a woman engineer giving a presentation said the battery pack in the Volt cost roughly $11,500 (she was more...

    Initializing Error Loop

    Either my Volt is developing a problem, or there was a random problem, or I just discovered a bug. The situation was this: I came home and turned off the Volt. Then I remembered that I wanted to...

    Congrats on the car. You should be one of the first to get one!

    Really? Would be news to me.
