2011 Chevrolet VoltClean Planet - New London, CT08/25/2015
Loved the "idea' of this car, but was skeptical.We decided to take the dive. Bought it in April of '15 with 50k miles on it. Wanted to put it to the test right away. We drove round trip CT to TX. Impressed! Averaged about 35 MPG on gas the whole trip. Surprisingly comfortable trip for 2 adults & 2 kids. At first, it felt a little weird to be the only Volt on the road. Then, we began to feel pretty cool about it! We have Solar Panels at home, so it's like "charging for free". There is a wealth of info available online about the car. Don't be fooled by naysayers. This is a great car IF it fits your lifestyle. I live 12 miles from work, which leaves me plenty of charge to get around on without mid day charging.

Excellent car for the money with a lot of desirable features. Only wish they has packed a bigger battery into this generation. Driving electric beats gas hands down.

We bought the car a week ago, and immediately went on a 2800 mile road trip to see if it could handle it. Passed with flying colors. The small tank made for more frequent stops than we would have liked, but the mileage made up for it. Unlike other all electric cars, we didn't have to rely on the battery solely. We were able to gas up and keep rolling. I'm an audio geek, and I wasn't offended by the sound system.After setting the EQ, it sounds pretty good! I rode in the back seat for a portion of the trip, and was PLEASANTLY surprised by the space I had to stretch out. I'm 5'8 195lbs and built, and didn't feel cramped. Now back home, haven't gassed up. Running on charges. Don't listen to the nay sayers. Get One!
