Just got my 2012 Volt about two weeks ago. Did a lot of research and test drives and really am enjoying the car. I was going to wait until the 2013 model as the only ones left here in Wisconsin that were the color and options I wanted were kinda loaded up with ALL the options available. However the 0% for 72 was pretty compelling and decided to go for it.
A couple of questions...
1. I know it is after the fact but interested to see if you veteran Volt owners think this was a good call to take advantage of the 0% vs. waiting for the 2013 and it's improvements? I see they kept the price the same on the 2013's.
2. They just released the specs on the 2013 and it sounds like they changed the battery so you can get 16.5 kwh and it doesn't hold as much in reserve to get you an extra 3 miles or so. They also put in the Hold mode in addition to the three modes on the 2012. Do you think they will be able to roll these changes out via software to the 2012's?
Thanks in advance for any input. I have really enjoyed reading the posts and taking advantage of everyone's knowledge.
