    Congrats. Talk about a high mileage vehicle!

    I have a Leaf and a Volt. All I can say is that you're ever so smart to get a Volt. That's before you get to the advantage of the on board generator.

    The $7500 tax credit was added to get to the residual. Take that off and there is no whack. In fact if you look at "retail", which is what you use in your title but which is a few thousand above ACV...

    Sorry to hear that. We've seen a few problems with the solenoid valve sticking. Not a ton but more than two. Shouldn't take more than one visit -- only if they miss it the first time -- but they'll...

    Agree that from a drive train POV the problem is all those Walter Mitty types zooming around. I can't remember exactly but I think Nissan denied warranty claims for GTR owners who used (or didn't...

    I agree that it's likely the battery being cold. Is there not a message for the engine running because the battery is cold? If not that's too bad because it would let you know why the engine is...

    Congrats on the car. Most likely just an aberration due to the weather. Give it a few days. The estimated range is just an estimate and can over or understate your actual range. We've had another...

    Recently Edmunds sold their long-term Tesla Model S; but before they did so the car had four (yes, four) drivetrains replaced by Tesla...

    I'll report when I get the car back. It's still at the dealer for a couple of unrelated cosmetic issues. I'd be very surprised if they disconnected the battery. They probably just reflashed the BCM. ...

    The Model S has a horrible repair record and no doubt this type of thing contributes. LOL

    I think mine showed 280 miles when I picked it up from the dealer. However, rather than going back to the dealer, I'd drive it for a while and see what shakes out. Might just be that the engine was...

    I rarely haven any anxiety driving the Leaf but I would never ever ever take it 400 miles. Even a drive of 80 miles can be somewhat anxiety provoking since it requires a DC charge and I always fear...

    Seems like my wild guess about being a new user was correct. The official word is that I put the car "in stuck". The service manager said he had seen it before, but I haven't managed to talk with him...

    Funny. Somewhat afraid of what the third strike might be.

    Every since Rupert bought the WSJ we've seen a great newspaper turn into a rag. Someone writing for a finance magazine should be embarrassed, because any fool with a whiff of financial sense would...

    Probably in some ways less likely because there are even fewer silver ones running around. Made me do look twice. What was funnier is that right next to the two ELRs was a dirty white Leaf which...

    I wouldn't buy a Model S and, while I bought an ELR, I wouldn't have bought one at or near the $81K MSRP. But that's just me being unwilling to pay that much for any car. In truth the ELR works...

    I doubt that is what happened. Probably just a statistical blip. You can expect a car to depreciate by 20% a year. The Volt has been less than that if you consider the tax credit, as you should. I...

    Obviously not a resident of the frozen north! No way would I put water on a car below freezing. LOL
