    Just so I get a picture of this, from the UK perspective, how do you go from $750pm to $200pm by tax incentives?
    I paid 50k for the car - minus 13.5k in tax incentives - effectively my price was 36.5k. Sold it for 31.5 25 months later - loss of 5k. Divide 5k by 25 -$200 a month, and it was little over than 25 months - so technically less than $200.

    Now - I think it was 6k in CO in 2015 - don't remember for sure, but those incentives sure helped.

    My dealer is better than most. They have room for improvement with the drop-off pick-up process, but, the technicians are top tier. Most of the issues I have had are parts availability. It is a limited run car, so, I expect that.

    My ELR is the absolute best car I have ever owned or driven. The wipers work too.

    I sure miss the Illinois incentives that got me close to an additiona $4k off my volt. Colorado's is some funky math formula based on battery capacity but having a cap at $6k -- how sweet.

    Details can be found here. https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/sit...s/Income67.pdf

    So the effective price of the original ELR would have been a no-brainer for me, but I would have probably kept it. She is so smoking hot I'd overlook a few warts under that gorgeous dress.

    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.
    You may be pissed. Sorry to hear about that. However, there are plenty of happy owners out here who love our cars and have had excellent service from our dealers. You enjoy your new toy from the Japanese industrial complex, I will keep my Volt thank you very much.

    Dont get me wrong - I am not pissed at all (not on the car anyway). I got to drive awesome looking car (inside and out - in my book The Best Looking Car on the road now) for 2 years and trully enjoyed it 90% of a time. Dealership sucked - so what - just another business I am not satisfy with. Needed to drive something reasonable while waiting for a better fully electric car (would never justify driving 100+ k car). Now time had arrived - those new cars with much better electrical range will draw the resale values of the Volts/ELR's down in my opinion and I just happy to get out of that wagon early enough. I might be wrong of course - but maybe not - in anyway - don't kill the messenger!
    The reason for the post is simply to finish the chapter of my ELR forum life - that forum obviously needs more posts anyway )

    And who knows - I might continue posting - this time on Bolt AWD forum for the years to come )

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.
    pure EV is not. The fault there is that batteries continue to weigh too much for the range they deliver. Automakers don't like having to accept nearly a 1000 pounds of weight for such little range and yes, anything under 300 to 400 is minimal.

    I don't fully understand this feature -- and don't get much chance to test it unfortunately -- but it seems to work as designed when set up correctly. The only "problem" is that if the light hits the windshield the right way the sensors will think it's rain and give it a single swipe. Overall not the greatest system.

    My biggest complaint about things not working is the manual is simply wrong about how you set the seat memory. Or I'm misinterpreting it. Hard to remember now but it says something like press and release and you have to press and hold.

    Neither do I, I've never seen it work really well on any car, nor do I see the point. It seems to me like a " If we can put a man on the moon, why do I still have to extend a finger to turn on my wipers?" kind of solution.

    I agree. I've never seen automatic wipers that were worth a damn. Like mentioned, it's a simple 1 second hand flick to operate wipers.
    Auto headlights are great, but auto highbeams and auto wipers are parlor tricks that really are not that good nor should they be trusted.
