As a brand new Volt owner I wanted to introduce myself. Just got it yesterday afternoon & only have about 20 miles on it, but I love it already ! I traded in my C6 corvette (and astounded all my friends ! ), and now need to try and control that right foot of mine.
Driving green was not my reason for purchasing, tho I think its an admirable choice. I am retired, and the vette was a once in a lifetime thing...everyone needs to have at least one Corvette in their lifetime. I just finally acknowledged to myself that it really was not practical for me as I only drive about 4000 miles a year, and all of that is short trips for groceries, Home Depot, etc which is why I believe the Volt is the car for me. It will take some training on my part to tame my driving style to this new car to get the full battery mileage it can deliver. Going from 450+ HP to 149 takes a bit of adjustment.
I look forward to learning more about my car through this forum as I did through the Corvette forums.
