    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    First, let me say thank you to everyone who has put a lot of time and effort into making this site what it is. As someone still stuck in the days of carbs and points, it has made the experience of owning a first-gen Volt a lot easier and enjoyable. From diagnosis of the most trivial to most...
  2. 1000 mile round trip question.

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    I have a 60,000 mile ELR/Volt. I've owned it 2 years, no issues besides replacing the 12 volt battery. I'm taking a 1000 mile trip in July, love my car, but wonder if because of age and the mileage the reliability has dropped enough to justify renting a car. Anyone have a car with similar or...
  3. Which gen is more reliable?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I’m looking to by a Volt within the next year, and I can’t decide whether to go for the 1st or 2nd generation. The 2nd gen, of course, has longer range, better fuel efficiency, and a fifth seat. However, due to the changes made to the battery and drivetrain to reduce weight and price, I’m...

    Hi Everyone, This is my first post in these forums, but I've been getting information about Chevy Volts for some time. I'm in the process of getting a used 2014/2015 Volt or a new 2017 Volt. I'm getting the Volt within 5 weeks and I've been researching both G1 and G2 Volts. The G1 Volt...

  7. Long Term Reliability; Thinking of Buying Used

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    My current 2013 Lease is ending in June and as it is with Ally; there will be no negotiating with the buyout price. I am optimistically thinking that 2017s may be on the lot at that time and new lease deals may closer reflect the good deal I got on my 2013. Baring all that optimism; I have been...
  8. 100,000 Miles of Great Ownership Experience

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    My 2011 Volt passed the 100,000 mile mark last Saturday while on the road to South Bend Indiana for a tremendous football victory by Northwestern over Notre Dame, but that’s another story. My ownership experience with my Volt has been almost as exhilarating as the victory of my Wildcats over the...
  9. Have you had ZERO problems with your Volt?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi everyone, As some of you know, I've been without my Volt for a few days now because of brake problems. I'm really bummed because I haven't even had the car for a month, and it's already in the shop. I probably won't get it back until later this week. Prior to buying it, I swore up and...
  10. Consumer Reports: Government Motors beats Ford in reliability

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Ford falls to second to last place while GM’s Chevy Volt had above-average reliability for the second-consecutive year, Consumer Reports said. I don't have a subscription (dropped it after the early CR Volt bashing), so I don't have the detailed list...
