    I just upgraded from my college hunk of junk. It was a 1999 Buick LaSabre that wasn't in the best aesthetic condition but I kept the engine in perfect order. Definitely in a whole new world now. I managed to score a 2012 Volt that was previously a General Electric cooperate lease for what I...

  7. Joining the Volt owners club after significant comparison shopping

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    A long while back I decided that each car I get should have better mileage than the previous. Since my previous car was an '06 Focus getting 33mpg, I was going to have to go diesel or HEV. Thankfully, today's market has a number of choices. I have respect for the 40+ mpg diesels, but VW is...

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Just purchased a new 2014 Volt to get the benefit of zero% finance that wasn't offered on the 2015 models. The car is quiet and peppy. It is quite low to the ground, so have to watch that and I am still getting used to the console. It is a little complicated, but after a week am figuring out...

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Hi! We just got our light blue 2014 Volt yesterday and I love it! My husband's neck doesn't turn as much as it used to, and I know that safety packages #1 and #2 will be invaluable to him. However, I can't get the chimes any louder (he doesn't always have his hearing aids turned on in the...

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    Living in Redondo Beach - just bought a 2013 Volt. Very happy so far - only been a day really. I wish there was more of a "welcome pack" for the new Volt owner though. A sort of "The first 10 things you should do now you own a Volt" type thing... There's a lot to get your head around :- Fed tax...

  17. Picking Up 2013 Crystal Red Tomorrow

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    After several months of reading, learning, and posting here on GM-Volt I closed a deal today for a loaded Red Volt. Here in Southern California the Volt is becoming somewhat rarer in the local dealerships. This is, of course, a good sign for another record sales month. My thanks to the forum...
