worse car I have ever owned
The overall quality of the Volt is well above average for a Chevrolet car of any kind. The drive is very smooth, a little eerie how quite it is, acceleration is good and the brakes are strong. Body roll is low and handling is overall impressive considering the hard compound tires and eco nature of the car. It is nice having the 2 screens with more information than you could want. With the tax incentives factored in the car is a great price. I have only put gas in it 3 times in 8 months!
This is the only car that I have ever owned that had no warranty problems. I made a trip to the dealership for an oil change and the 60,000 mile service. I did hit a deep pot hole once. the tire and a $12 suspension part had to be replaced. Also, my local tire store removed a few nails.
I love this car, its so easy to drive and super comfortable and it is great value for the money. i hope auto makers keep making small affordable cars even though they are not the most profitable for them. i love the 3-cylinder CVT combo in this car it is very smooth and has enough power to move itself around quickly but i would go with the 5 speed if you can . i also love how i always get better mpg than the sticker this thing is Extremely affordable.
