Gene Weingarten’s amusing article on his experience with the Volt provides another name for one of the Volt’s peculiarities:
"Most peculiarly, GM has outfitted the turn-signal lever so that if you pull it back toward you, it utters a little bleat to tell unwary pedestrians an otherwise silent car is approaching. Actually, calling this a bleat is unfair to sheep; it's more like someone with a head cold clearing his sinuses."
“Hork snork, it proclaims. Volt driver coming through! “
