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.

Two years driving the best car made by Richard on 06/15/2013. Owned 1 year.
Pros: The car keeps getting better. Bought it in May 2011. Now have 22,147 miles on it; total gasoline used so far is 68.7 gallons. Compared to previous BMW sedan, I have saved about $3,400 on gasoline I didn’t have to buy. Electricity cost is much cheaper – about 3.3 cents per mile (and electricity is 100% USA produced). I charge it overnight like a cell phone. Takes only a few seconds to plug it in / unplug it. A lot of time saved by not going to gas station every couple of weeks. And I don’t much care what the cost of gasoline is now. Only maintenance has been to rotate the tires at 15K miles.
Cons: It’s not really a complaint about the car…. but you should know before before you buy a Volt --- the car is additive. After a couple of months of driving the Volt you are hooked, you will never willing drive a gasoline (only) car again. You really get hooked by the superior technology. ----------------------------------------- --- xxxxxx --xxxxx-- note posting error in heading----- I have owned the Volt for TWO years but the heading above says one year and I cannot change it -- so ignore it.
Overall review: Instant electric torque, silent power, solid road feel - there is no downside to this machine. It is just about the perfect sport sedan. The only critics are the people who don’t own one. (but lack of any real knowledge about the car does not prevent them from writing about it).

Love my Volt by Jan from Colorado on 06/15/2013. Trim: 2013 Chevrolet Volt Base, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: We bought our 2013 Volt in January and it is awesome! We live in the Colorado and the car is great on inclines and in the snow. The car gains mileage when we are going down hill. It is a fun car to drive. My only complaint are the seat adjustments are manual and not automatic and difficult to adjust !
Cons: My only complaint are the seat adjustments are manual and not automatic and difficult to adjust, The other thing was the interior trim choices are hideous so we went with a trim with no pattern on it.
Overall review: I love this car and waving at the gas stations as I drive by. Everyone should drive one of these and put the oil companies out of business!!

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
