  1. My car insurance will pay $50 per tow -- is that enough?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    My Volt is past the GM-provided 5-year coverage for roadside assistance. My USAA car insurance will pay "up to $ 50 per disablement" for Towing & Labor. Is that enough? Does it make a difference (in terms of cost) that the Volt has to travel on top of a truck? How do other Volt owners handle...

    Chevy Bolt EV Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs
    So my Volt had it's window smashed and the only thing of value in it (the 120V charger) was stolen. I have automotive/comprehensive and renter's insurance. Insurance being insurance, they each ping pong me off the other, claiming it is not their responsibility. My renter's claims, correctly...
  3. Michigan Deals on the Bolt

    Chevy Bolt EV Buying, Leasing, and Selling
    Hey everyone just trying to spot any potential good deals on Bolts in Michigan to lease at prices under $250 a month. I hate that we can't go to other states to pick up a lease and bring it back or I would be driving to go get one for cheaper. I called a dealership yesterday and the price they...

  6. Rear-Ended 2012 Volt, can it be repaired?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I was rear-ended by some idiot while stopped at a Yield sign. My Volt sacrificed itself to keep me from getting injured or killed, which I really appreciate. But now my insurance company is wondering whether the car should be replaced or scrapped, and I was wondering what folks here think...
  7. US Bank turn in with Excessive Wear & Tear insurance (EWT), a cautionary tale

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    So, I'd suggest you not do what I did: Turn in your car, at the dealer, the day you drive off in your new Volt without having the condition estimate been done. Three months and change, I am still trying to get it all tied off. What should you do? Some simple and some not so obvious things...

    Is anyone participating in the Progressive, or Allstate Drive Wise insurance programs that utilize the OBDII port to track driving habits and get up to 30% insurance discount?

  11. How much is your insurance

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    I wanted to get a Volt as a 3rd car, and have been trying to get the numbers to work out. However, I got sticker shock when I asked my insurance company to give me a quote. I have NJM in New Jersey (a very good company, usually much lower cost and better service than others). I gave them a...
  12. Used Volt incentives?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    This is still a while down the road being that the Volt has just been released this past winter, but unless I am blind and have not read clearly, would there be any incentive to buy a volt used, down the road, say when someones 3 year lease runs up. Would there be any tax incentives or are those...
