Hands down the best car I've ever owned. It handles incredibly smooth, has surprisingly good pick-up when you need it, and is crazy quiet when running off the battery.
I routinely get 40 miles off a full charge, which makes it perfect for getting around town, to and from work, to the grocery store, and whatnot. In the 4 months I have had a Volt, I've only had to fill the gas tank twice -- and those were both during out-of-town trips. The added costs to my monthly utility bill has barely been noticeable.
The touchscreen options in the dash are great, too.
Anyone who's on the fence about getting a Volt should absolutely take the plunge...I had high expectations when I bought mine, and it's performed well beyond what I had hoped.
Way more than I expected from an electric car!
2012 Chevrolet VoltRobert Rohlman - Charlotte, NC09/16/2015
When Chevrolet decided to create an electric car, they decided to pull out all the stops. This car has everything and more. Not only is it a pure electric car, meaning it's primarily driven from the electric motors, but it also has the extended range feature of the 1.4 litre engine meaning I NEVER worry about running out of charge. What a relief. And not only is the car loaded with great features, the car drives GREAT. In sport mode it is super responsive. It tracks the road great, and is smooth as silk. I and my whole family love how quiet it is and very comfortable as well. The only problem I have is because the car is so quiet and so smooth, with no engine vibration or transmission shifting, I am constantly speeding! But so fun to drive!
4 months with a Volt

- Ample charge after plugging into 120 volt overnight.
- Smooth ride
- Great sound system
- "Sport" mode provides sufficient power
- Minimal necessary maintenance
- High pitched whine when running on gasoline
- Gas engine takes premium fuel
- "Park assist" beeps at you when things are too close to both the front and rear, no matter if you're in drive or reverse.
- Tight cabin space
- There is no spare tire, but rather a puncture repair kit.
