k3lkn Oct 17, 2011
We've had our volt for 5 months and have over 6,000 miles. Our only problem has been with the charging unit as we gone through two of them. The car is a pleasure to drive, handles almost as wel as my Porsche and has plently of zip. Our gas mileage varies from 40 to 48 depending on the speed and terrain. During a software update the dealer lent me a Chevy Malibu and it did not handle anywhere nearly as well as the ********** a great car and we would not hesitate to recommend it or purchase another one.
Black Volt - 2 month review

We've had our Volt for two months. We enjoy this car more and more every day. It's smooth, quiet, comfortable, and fun to drive. The quality is excellent, we've had no glitches or issues. GM is very attentive to the Volt owners. They follow-up often and look for feedback. We've traveled 1600 miles to date and have used less than 4 gallons of gas. Factoring in the cost of electricity, we're still close to 160 MPG or so. My daily commute is about 20 miles round trip, so the car is always in EV mode Monday - Friday. Now that the weather has warmed in CT, we are easily seeing 40+ miles on a charge, with a high of 48 miles so far. I find it interesting all the negative opinions I've read on line about the Volt, about the price, about GM, whatever; all from people who have probably never even seen a Volt, let alone drive one or spend any time with one. Is it the perfect vehicle that will satisfy 100% of the population? No. That vehicle doesn't exist. But it does everything GM said it would, and does it extremely well.
