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!
I bought the red car which was not my first choice, but what they had with the amenities and accessories that I wanted. So my husband talked me into it. I love it, the red is a beautiful color the interior is goldish tan and black inside and looks very classy. It's easy to clean also. It's the easiest car to drive I pull it in my garage and plug it in overnight and it's fully charged every morning. I get a full commute 22 miles each way on one full charge. It saves me 75 to 80% of the money I was spending on gasoline.
So far i have got over 400 M.P.G. Great handling, Quiet, comfort, style, Plus it saves me over $150.00 per month in fuel prices.That is less than a penny a mile. Love it. I owned my own Body shop for more than 40 yrs. I have owned many muscle car's, luxury cars. collector auto's. over 200 autos and trucks., But I like my Volt the best.....After driving it and getting in another auto. No comparison.
