Great Car For Anyone — The car is overall a great buy. I'm more than happy with it and i can already tell I'll be saving a ton of money without having to stop at the gas station as often. I've had it over 2 weeks and haven't even come close to needing gas

Love This Car — Best car I have ever owned. Other than the cargo room issue and he small back seat everything else I love about this car. The gas mileage is a big plus if you are a short range driver. less than 30 miles per day.

Great As A Daily Driver Or Commuter Car! — GM did an amazing job on the fit and finish of this car. Can't beat the fuel savings at the pump and has cutting edge technology in your garage. Would highly recommend this car for anyone that enjoy having a great conversation piece. Well done GM.

Pros

Excellent mileage. I can get to and from work, as well as run my errands, on purely electric, so I'm averaging 230mpg.

Cons

Backseats are tight. The sound system is still a bit weak, even with the premium Bose system.

Love My Volt! — Very economical, comfortable, smooth riding car. I've owned Lexus and Acura and this car is much quieter and smoother than those. Acceleration is awesome, especially in sport mode. Brakes are a bit mushy, but I'm used to driving my Acura. However, I feel super safe in the car and the car is really fun to drive - especially considering that I'm driving around town for next to nothing.

The Cool Car Grandma Drives — Cool,quiet,fuel efficient.We call it our shuttlecraft. It is like driving a spacecraft. When we "start" it, it hums. You really have to listen to hear the hum. People love looking at it and they are amazed it is silent.

Beautiful Car. Glad I Bought It. — This is an awesome car. Exterior styling is beautiful. It is very comfortable. It is fun to drive. It seems solidly built. I am doing almost all of my driving with battery power. Charges rapidly with the 240V charger.
