Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
As one who has owned cars from Chrevrolets to Cadillacs I have found the Avalon to be the most comfortable and economical car of all. I have owned. All have been very dependable. 2 were given to my kids after my use. All have had at least 160,000 trouble-free miles.
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!
As Volkswagens go, this one has been relatively trouble-free. The most expensive out-of-pocket repair I've experienced in 8 years was $1400 (build-up in 2 of the engine cylinders). Prior to that, there was recall item covered under warranty. Beyond those items, maintenance hasn't been too pricey. The car is comfortable, performs well in the city and on the highway and is good on gas. Big trunk + fold-down rear seats = tons of carrying capacity when needed.
This New Version of the 2014 Kia Optima Hybrid IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!!!!!!!! I Love it, I Want it & I Gotta' Have it; Forever!!!
I smile every time I drive it !
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.
Great car the 2.0 is good on gas and very fast for a 4 cylinder!
