  1. Newbie - choosing between volt, bmw i3, and tesla M3

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Greetings from Los Angeles! I'm tired of giving my money to the oil companies. They are singlehandedly endangering the human race, they've been lying to us for years, filling our government with their puppets, and polluting our world so they they can enrich themselves. I want to vote against...
  2. I bought a volt, what next?

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    I was hoping for a good rundown of things to get for my Volt as a sticky thread. As for what I bought, it's a used 2014 volt 42k miles. I accidentally used the sealant in the air compressor so will be replacing that. A dog will be in the trunk so any recommendations on all weather mats or a pet...
  3. 2012 Newbie

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I'm the proud owner of a new to me 2012 Volt. It had roughly 41000 miles on it, and is a definite step up from my former car, a Chevy Spark (I did like the Spark while I had it). I'm waiting on a charger from the dealer, but did manage to charge at a public station once since I made the...
  4. where do i put my phone?

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I just got my 2015 Volt, and after driving a Honda Insight, and two Priuses for the last twelve years, it's a change. I've always had nav before, and i didn't buy it for the Volt, partly because Volt owners don't seem impressed with it, and partly because, in recent years, i have relied more on...

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Hello, all! Just bought my Certified 2014 Chevy volt 2 weekends ago, and I love it. Black exterior and Jet black interior with white trim. The car runs smooth and everything seems to be working the way it should be (btw, only 2k miles on the car). I must say I Was hesitant at first, as I have...
  6. New to the Forum and arriving Voltless

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Hi Folks, I am new to this forum and am hankering big time for a Volt. I am researching like a law student and really think I will land on getting the new 2016 (17?) Volt this spring when it goes nationwide. But I struggle on buying new vs. used. The $7500 tax credit should work fully in my...
  7. Introductory post for a hopefully soon to be volt owner

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Greetings all - I guess I broke protocol a little bit by posting elsewhere within the forums first :) I'm in central coast, CA and I too am an engineer. I've been thrilled about the Volt for sometime. Having saving up over some time and watching prices continue to decline, I'm excited to pull...
  8. What am I missing?

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I'm car-shopping & not really looking for EVs at all. I started at the local Carmax because that's a good place to see a variety of brands and models without some sales guy resting his chin on your shoulder the whole time... Anyway, Carmax has several Volts on the lot at $17k (2012) and up. I...
  9. Day One complete

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Got my new Volt, 2014, premium package and drove it home, figured out how to plug it in to my 120 outlet. Still didn't completely understand how the savings on energy costs are realized. The next morning i got up and configured my XM radio and onstar, and was surprised that charging overnight in...
  10. Questions from a potential volt-er? (Is that a thing?)

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Hi there - Newb here. I'm heavily researching the Volt to be my next car, but I have a couple questions I'm hoping all you awesome, educated people can help me with! 1) I'm looking at the 2015 models but should I wait for the 2016? I'm leaning towards the 2015 because the 2016 sounds like it'll...

  12. Best Volt deals in Maryland?

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    My wife and I are considering purchasing a Volt here in Maryland. I've spent the day learning all I can about the Volt and it may, in fact, be more affordable than we first thought. That said, is anyone aware of the best deals here in Maryland? We live near Westminster and there is one Chevy...
  13. My New Volt -- Woo-hoo!

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Hi all, I'm a new 2013 Volt owner out here in southern California. I traded in my '05 Lexus to get it. My OnStar and Volt-Stats.net name for it is "PowerTrip". ;) I drive exactly 40 miles each day to work (round-trip) and in the two days I've owned my Volt, I'm yet to use any gasoline. I get...
  14. New Owner in Oregon :)

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    So after many months of waiting and watching the order process for the Plugin-Prius, I started to get disillusioned with it's shortcomings - and started really looking at the Volt. Picked one up a couple days ago at Capital Chevrolet here in Salem, OR. So far, love it! White Diamond Tricoat...
