Pros

Value - a really solid electric car at half the price of a Tesla.
Range - Over 350 miles with a full charge and a full gas tank
Seamless transitions between electric and gasoline
Oh yeah, it is just really cool..

Cons

Low front ground clearance (flexible air dam helps this)
It always defaults to the slowest charging mode (8Amp) when you park.   We have to remember to set the mode frequently.
Quality of the sound system is a little basic, and the user interface is a little non-intuitive.

It's For Real — I was pretty skeptical about how "real" an electric car would be. Is it just a glorified golf cart? No, this one is definitely a real solid car with some extraordinary engineering behind it. As a guy who designs spacecraft for a living, I am impressed with the Volt. You really don't need to know that you are driving an electric. It can be driven exactly like a regular gasoline car. However, I prefer to drive in "L" gear, where it maximizes the regenerative braking, so then you do feel a little difference. The "Sport" driving mode is quite fast. You'll experience the odd sensation of continuous, uninterrupted acceleration without the familiar jolt of gear changes. And then you look down and you are at 60 mph in no time. It's a geeky wolf in sheep's clothing. We have only had it about 3 months, but so far it has done well in the 2-3 inches of snow we have seen a couple of times. We've owned some really good cars over the years, but this might be my favorite so far.

Pros

Love the fact that I don't use gas. Fill up a couple gallons every couple months. Energy bill increase about $35 per month. I drive roughly 40-50 miles a day.

Cons

Charge only gets about 35 miles in the winter (with heater running). Wish it had just a bit more cargo room in the back but haven't run into anything I couldn't put in there with at least a seat folded down.
