  3. Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I wrote this piece today on CBS MoneyWatch making the case that the Volt is now green for the wallet as well. I've had my Volt for just over a month and love it! I took the low end of all of the suggestions I had been given for a comparable car. Many thanks to Terry Boult for all of his help...

    HALFWAY THROUGH 2013 AND WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED? TUESDAY, JULY 16, 2013 AT 10:00AM By Peter M. De Lorenzo Detroit. It has been quite a year in the auto biz. Tumultuous in some respects, cloyingly tedious in others and just plain unremarkable overall, I’d like to say it’s a brand-new day but...

    Excerpt from "The Street": "October ought to have been a bad month for Volt. Gas prices were falling. Auto industry wisdom had it that with so many conventional cars closing in on 40 miles per gallon, why would anyone spend $30,000 for a compact? Also, the last month of the presidential...

    This sure does not look good: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20120501/AUTO0103/205010332/GM-chop-100-R-D-positions According to the article GM has been quietly laying off people for some time. This is not a good way to keep a competitive edge or employee morale up.

    Front page of Jalopnik this morning: Tesla Motors Devastating Design Problem If this becomes front page news on mainstream media websites or Fox picks it up, it's bad news for all cars that use electricity. I know the Volt doesn't have this problem but the news media paints with a very wide...
