Hello, I just sold my TDI back to VW the other day, and I have been seriously looking at Gen 1 Chevy Volts as a replacement. I test drove a couple yesterday, and I had a question for anyone that can answer...the 2nd Volt I test drove had not been charged up at all when I got there, but I still tested it out anyways to see how it runs on the gas generator. I noticed at around 35-40mph, the engine was revving really high, like it was stuck in 1st gear and couldn't get out. The dealer told me it's a "well, it's commuter car and that it does that to keep up with the demand". I was a little concerned, because I was wondering what it would have done at highway speeds. Is this something normal, or was I right to pass on this one? Thanks everyone in advance!
