Outstanding car by Paul on 02/09/2013. Trim: 2013 Chevrolet Volt Base, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I like everything, have owned it 4 months now and have not spent a dime on gas. Car feels solid, handling is great acceleration? Everyone who rides in it says they get weird stomach feelings, i think it is because there is no shifting gears. Feels like when a jet takes off.
Cons: The only thing i don't like? I am 6'2" Head room inside is great. Getting in the door is a little awkward. Maybe making the door a little higher would be nice.
Overall review: Great car, very fun to drive. Electric clowns gas. I still have my 4X4 truck, but only drive it when i need it. I do not have kids, but people i know who do, would like the rear consol removed and made into room for a 5th passenger.

Best Car Ever by Alan from Miami on 05/14/2013. Trim: 2013 Chevrolet Volt Base, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Everything. It is the best vehicle I have ever owned and I have owned over nine various new cars. It performs well, comfortable, quiet and agile. I love the challenge of driving without gas.
Cons: The price is still a little too high.
Overall review: A great product, and from General Motors, who would have thought!

Luv my Volt by Dave on 04/06/2013. Trim: 2013 Chevrolet Volt Base, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Not only does this car get great gas mileage, it has excellent power and handling. I leased my current Volt as I wasn't sure if I would like it or not. After driving it foe 6 months now, I wish I had purchased it. I am very happy with the power and handling on this car. It handles cornering very well, plus it has a nice comfortable ride. The car gets 44 MPG without any electrical charge in the battery. So even if you never charge the car, you get better gas mileage than most other cars.
Cons: The price tag is a bit high and if you live in a colder climate you can expect to lose some electric miles in the winter time. I was getting 35 miles per electric charge in the summer and it is down to 28 electric miles in the winter.
Overall review: I absolutely love this car. The whole package (power economy, handling, comfort) are the best of any car I have owned. I will definitely consider another Volt when my current lease runs out next year

The Ultimate Car by Robert on 02/22/2013. Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Few visits to the gas station.
Overall review: After 3 months of ownership, my MPGe is 157. With charging stations readily available, my first trip to the gas station this year may be in April. With the average cost of gasoline at $4.30 per gallon, this should be your car of choice.

244 mpg on 6 gallons a month by Bob in Seattle on 02/22/2013. Owned 1 year.
Pros: Fuel economy is outstanding. With charge stations readily available around town, trips of 40 miles or less are almost always all-electric; with a good gas engine, we've got no "range anxiety" and can keep going anytime our plans change. We get 240+ mpg with one 400+ mile trip out of state per month. Performance including steering, cornering, and acceleration is excellent, by far the best car we've owned. Luxury feel to the interior has been nice; rear bucket seats are a treat, though it means 4 seats and not 5.
Cons: The smart USB audio connection does not support Windows Phone interface. Playing XBox Music uses the stereo audio connector instead, so music controls are on the phone and not on the Chevy touch screen.
Overall review: This is Chevy's "halo car" and worthy of the moniker. Its upscale price tag, even before rebates, is easily justified by its performance, interior appointments, advanced features and above all by its extended-range EV design. With the USA (and some states) ready to give back some of your tax dollars to offset the purchase, it's an even better deal.
