Love my Volt by Kerry on 11/10/2013. Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Quick, responsive. High end interior
Cons: I wish the outside was a little more stylish. I can't really drive with the windows down, because of the reverberation from the hatchback.
Overall review: I will lease another one after this lease is up. I love it.

Car of The Future...right now! by Larry Huntington NY on 12/24/2013. Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Has exceeded my expectations as far as MPG and performs like any other vehicle. Fit and finish is top notch and styling is on the cutting edge. I am 6'6" and have no trouble making myself comfortable.
Cons: Needs more ground clearance but not a big issue.
Overall review: The car pays for itself as I'm saving over $200 per month in gas so what's not to like!

Love my Volt! by Dave from michigan on 11/10/2013. Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Love the power, handling, comfort, and economy. I have averaged 152 mpge since I bought it 15 months ago. In Sport driving mode, it gets up and goes!
Cons: Battery function in cold weather (it only gets 28 electric miles in the winter). The normal electric range is 38 mile
Overall review: Love the car, it is definitely worth the price.

THE ENERGY STAR by ENERGY FREAK on 02/25/2014. Trim: 2014 Chevrolet Volt Base, Owned 1 year.
Pros: MAIN THING IS GAS SAVING. I HAVE CHECKED MY ELECTRIC CHARGING COSTS AND THEY ARE ABOUT $1.30 FOR 45 MILES. i HAVE TAKEN TWO LONG TRIPS THE FIRST YEAR i HAVE HAD IT, 3,000 MILES OUT OF 15,000 AND I AM STILL AVERAGING 93 MPG. THIS CAR IS NOT GETTING THE PUBLICITY IT SHOULD--FROM THIS SITE AS WELL. IF EVERY ONE HAD A CAR LIKE THIS WE WOULD IMPORT NO OIL!! AND IF EVERY ONE HAD A 2KW SOLAR PANEL TO CHARGE IT WE WOULD USE A LOT LESS COAL!
Cons: NEEDS A LITTLE MORE SPACE IN THE BACK SEATS
Overall review: BEST ENERGY SAVING CAR ON THE MARKET FOR THE PRICE. RIDES AND HANDELS LIKE A MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE CAR. THE PROS OUTWEIGHT ALL THE CONS YOU COULD THINK OF.

What a great car! by JSW MD on 01/20/2014. Trim: 2014 Chevrolet Volt Base, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Excellent car all around. I had an an Audi A4 before. Comparable to that but not as nice on the interior. Upgraded stereos not as nice as the Audi. Drives very well. Extremely quiet. During the summer will get 40-45 miles per charge. During the winter average about 27. For most of my around town driving his works just fine. Love the little green ball to monitor driving habits. Love the driver interface with the on screening computer. Have managed to get 146 miles per gallon of gas. Have put 11,400 miles on the car of which 9500 were electric. Most of the gas usage goes to keep in the car warm during the winter. Once the weather heats up I will not fill the gas tank for months.
Cons: Seats are comfortable enough. Do not miss the power adjustments as I am the only driver. Have not used it for any long-term trips due to the limited electric mileage. Strongly recommend getting the 220 V charger for quick charges. Have not seen a great increase in my electric bill from charging the car Maybe $5-10 a month. I've used to total of about 75 gallons of gas over the last year. Again most of that during the winter months to keep the car warm. On gas alone it gets about 30 miles to the gallon Cons: Limited electric range. Can be comparatively noisy when switches to the gas powered electric generator. Has a hard time going up a hill when it is snow-covered.
Overall review: I love this car. The only car I would trade it for would be a Tesla. I will probably never go back to a totally gas powered car again. Now with the Price decreased I strongly recommend trying the scar.
