  1. Porsche Taycan EV review fail- Forbes

    I had to laugh at the author's comparisons to the Model S and calling "ties" between the two that are at best just plain wrong, at worst a clear bias or a paid Porsche lackey. Example: Porsche Taycan has 12.9 Cubic feet rear trunk space compared to 26.3 for the Model S. He called it a tie. Give...
  2. Volt (not Bolt) vs. Model 3

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Seems like many here and elsewhere are trying to make a forced comparison between a Bolt and the Model 3. These cars have almost nothing in common except a 200 mile+ battery. No one compares CUV's to sedan's based on the starting criteria that both have a similar sized gas tank. Shouldn't the...
  3. LED brake light upgrade: slow motion video comparison

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Inspired by forum members Teksavy and Milivolt I did LED brake light upgrade mentioned here: Obviously LEDs have many benefits—I upgraded all of a home lighting to LED bulbs a few years ago—but I...

    For the last three years, I've been the happy driver of a 2012 Nissan Leaf. I loved everything about the car, even if it did require some adjustments in the way I thought about driving, range, and planning ahead. But my lease was coming to an end, and through some amazing incentives that GM was...
  5. Driving a Volt and a Prius back-toback: Comments from a Prius test drive

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    My wife's 14 year old car died, it ate the timing belt ( actually the belt is fine, the exhaust cam sprocket failed), so it likely has some bent valves. This forces the issue - some time with it apart in my driveway, or another car sooner than the gen2 arrives. We'd been planning on driving...
  6. Lease Deal Comparison Spreadsheet

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    Several weeks ago, I began creating a spreadsheet that would enable me to compare all of the aspects of a Chevy Volt lease deal, across multiple dealers. The spreadsheet did its job and then some, also serving as a tool to acquire comprehensive quotes from dealers. It provided interesting...
  7. Chevy Volt, Prius, VW Jetta TDI Compared. Volt Wins. Mostly.

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    "There have been several cars that have attempted to beat the Prius at its own game over the past few years, all with varying levels of success. After a week with Chevrolet’s long-in-waiting Volt though, we think we’ve found a car that not just beats the Prius at its own game, but completely...
