    Adaptive cruise control

    Traded in my 2012 Volt for a loaded Subaru Outback Limited. Have fallen in love with adaptive cruise control. It's not useful for in-town driving, but is really great for long-distance Interstate...

    What a ride!

    Years ago I read a review of a Morgan 3-wheeler that said the ride comfort was comparable to sitting on a sheet of plywood being dragged along a bumpy road at speed.

    Comparison of 2016 models of the Honda CRV and Subaru Outback Limited

    I would have agreed with you a few years ago, but Subaru made a major upgrade of the Outback in 2015, and the 2016 Outback is now taller than the Honda CRV, has more passenger room and more cargo...

    So long -- but thanks for the fish

    I bought my 2012 Volt in April, 2012 and I'm glad I did. GM engineers were spot on in development of a practical extended range electric car. For the past three and a half years the Volt has...

    I'm still a fan of the extended range Volt approach. Most of my driving is done on battery. Once in a while, I need to take longer trips, which can exceed a 200 or 300 mile range. I wouldn't want to...

    I've never forgotten a review of a 3-wheel Morgan that emphasized two points:

    1) The 3-wheel geometry makes it much harder to dodge potholes and road debris.

    2) Ride quality and comfort: like...

    My free OnStar service ends next month. Unlike many of the posters here, I've agreed to renewal of OnStar. Have had two flats in rural areas at night, got the car towed for no charge. Didn't have to...

    Of course the lifetime mileage is not misleading. It’s reporting the amount of gasoline used to achieve the miles driven. That’s nothing but fact. Of course, although my Volt has done better than 250...

    My OnStar service is scheduled to expire in April. I received the message about automatic extension of the service (based on my initial signup data). Not a problem, as it's simple to refuse or...

    I agree! Although this hasn't been a bad winter so far (in Brown County, Indiana), there have been days when 35 degrees would have seemed warm. I rarely turn on heat above 35, just the seat warmer.

    Motorized cup holder lid? That's asking for trouble. Much like the motorized charge port cover on my 2012 Volt, which required a fix.

    Sometimes simplicity is better engineering.

    I saw comments by OnStar that they were also concerned about the failure to locate the crash site, and are investigating this.

    One of the reasons I’m considering paying for continued OnStar...

    The OP’s premise is ludicrous. The extent of GM’s innovation in creating the Cimarron resembled putting lipstick on a pig. By contrast, the Volt exemplified a new category—extended range electric...

    I have an iPhone 5s and checked its operation with my Volt. No problems.

    After some 2.5 years of driving experience with my 2012 Volt, Iíve concluded that some of my driving routes result in range extension of almost 10% if I drive in Normal rather than L.

    Although I subscribe to Car and Driver, I agree that the article is pretentious puffery. My Volt is offended, too. :)

    And, of course, not all lies are Republican nor do all Republicans lie (says me, a Republican Volt owner). :)
