I've driven a 2009 Mini Cooper S the last three years, and with the need for a new car, I've opted to buy a Volt. The test drive really did seal the deal, as the car was even more impressive than I had expected it to be. Fortunately, the dealer had a car fitting my wants coming in sometime in the next couple weeks, so I am hoping to be driving it as spring starts to arrive (hopefully) here in the metro Detroit area. I'll be getting a White Diamond Volt with the navigation/sound package. This site has also been very useful in enabling me to gather info to rattle off to my talk radio-brainwashed father, who will no doubt give me the usual misinformed talking points against the car!
