Needed new brakes

I really loved this car when I got first got it. After I had put on about 1500 miles (which took over 90 days) the brakes started squeaking very loudly, even when I was moving and not using them. I took it in to my local Chevrolet dealership to see what the problem was. It turns out that the calipers, pads, and rotors had so much rust damage that they needed to e completely replaced. One would think that something like this would have been caught during the inspection process that Carmax likes to advertise so much.


  • Fuel Economy:


  • Braking: I had to spend over a thousand dollars to completely replace the brakes on this car after driving it less than 1500 miles.

Affordable electric. Zero range anxiety.

Pros: I couldn't afford a new fully electric vehicle, but I was able to afford a used Volt. As long as I plug it in every night on a standard 120v, and drive less than 50 miles per day, I rarely use gasoline. I only use gasoline when I go out of town. And I never have to worry about finding a charge station when out of town. Because I'm mostly driving in electric mode, my mpg is around 70 mpg. It's not gonna thrust you back in your seat like a Tesla, but it's gets off the line with plenty of zip. Cons: It's a mid-size on the outside, compact on the inside. The back left and right seats are fine, but tight fitting for adults. The middle back seat should only be for luggage, not comfortable. Very low to the ground, some speed bumps will hit the bottom if going too fast. Too fast being 5 mph.

EV for everyday or gas for longer trips!

A plug in EV with an engine/generator on board makes the most sense for remote Colorado! There simply are not the charging stations out there to be used on any longer trip. Having a 4 cyl. generator that can charge and run the car for 350 more miles is excellent engineering on Chevy's behalf. Maybe someday remote areas like Delta CO will have charging everywhere and it will be less than 30 min. but until then this car is the only sane answer! Love it!


  • Dashboard: Love the high integration of screen with everything you would ever want to see as well as phone and navigation screens.
  • Fuel Economy: On daily trips around town, the car is totally an EV. Longer than 50 miles the engine starts and keeps me moving. Overall this car can get 65miles/gal. in combined gas/EV mode.
  • Ride and Handling: Has a tight suspension, almost like a German BMW, firm around corners. That go cart feel yet irons out the bumps.


  • Cabin Noise: A bit more noisy that I'd like. But then it's a much newer car than I've ever had. I think they all are build 'cheaper' now days unless you spend 50K or more.
  • Seat Comfort: I have the "premier" version, yet it has fairly basic driver seats. No power anything there. Would have liked power tilt and height. But then I understand this car was already to high in cost when it was new due to all the advances in R&D that Chevy incurred designing it. Had to skimp somewhere.
