    I am sure when you sold the car you were "brutally honest" your issues with the car, dealership, and manufacturer.....

    If I had a straight-electric with 200-mile range, I would still be parked in Wyoming without power on my 4,000-mile summer vacation through the Northern Rockies. Never had a place to plug-in my Volt.

    So you got rid of it because you can't turn on your own windshield wipers?

    I'm with you though. I won't be buying another GM, this time for sure. They prove to me time and time again they don't care about their customers once they have their money from the initial sale. Japanese cars are the way to go. I'd take a import with no warranty over a GM with a "10 year warranty"

Hoping for Bolt AWD (but GM again - might have to walk away) or Jaguar. Here in CO I think 6k state plus 7.5k federal tax incentives - definitely help with resale.
    Until I can "fill up" my battery in 5-7 minutes at any corner electric station, "pure electrical" is not a "better concept," except perhaps for a dirt cheap econobox to be used solely for commuting or going to a local store.

    200+ mile EVs aren't dirt cheap econoboxes. Or are you referring to the 60-70 mile range Leafs and MIEVs. In that case I'd agree.

    Auto headlights are great, but auto highbeams and auto wipers are parlor tricks that really are not that good nor should they be trusted.
    Both auto-lights and auto-wipers work on my ELR. Perfectly? No. Good enough? Yes. These are things that a fully autonomous car may need, so, not a wasted effort imho.

    The rain-sense wipers are really handy. In mist/light rain they adjust to the volume of water amazingly well and if the rain gets heavier they wipe faster. Much better than constantly adjusting the wipe rate manually. Need an extra wipe? Just flick the stalk towards you (washer activation). This leaves the control in auto.

Overall very cheap way to pay for my middle life crisis , and to drive the best looking car on the road.
    Cady - if you are listening - not buying another GM anytime soon - going back to my lovely Acura again. Feel like my complains about not working automatic windshield wiper and loose driver seat were simply ignored - even after getting BBB involved. Never had that happened to me at any other dealerships - the mechanic would look you in the eyes and mumble -"its working the way its supposed to" - end of the conversation. Still pissed about it. Flat tire assistant program is also not functional. Not the way to treat the guy with deep pockets.
    Overal - era of Volt is over - Bolt and hopefully Model 3 and new generation Lelaf is the game changer.
    For all of you current Volt and ELR owners - I think its time to move on to something better. I will.
    Sorry you had a bad dealership experience. But one bad report will not change my mind about my Volt. I LOVE it. All cars have issues. It is the dealership that makes or breaks the relationship.

    Its a great car while driving electric - not much so on gas. On that note - drove my gas guzzler to work today - its just sucks to drive( Its really is difficult to go back to drive ICE. Hopefully can get model 3 or Bolt with AWD sometime soon.

    This site is moderated by CNN and about as honest too. Just be glad your moving on and this site will be only a memory, like your ELR
