Wondering if anyone has added a bugshield or similar product on the Volt? I have used them on my truck and my wife's Subaru Crosstrek with good results. I actually like the way it looks on the Crosstrek.

Wouldn't such a shield affect aerodynamics/range? On a similar note, I wonder if rain guards have significant affect on aerodynamics/range as well.

Do they actually work for you? I'm ignorant to their effectiveness. Wouldn't bugs that don't hit the guard just hit your windshield and hood anyway? Or does the guard create an air flow that diverts bugs over your car?

I have actually found that they work, diverting the air flow. My previous Crosstrek had dozens of nicks in the hood after a year. Subaru isn't known for their paint ?. Added one to this new one and nothing! I also have on the truck and the hood looks good as new.

Use a clear bra instead. Cleaner looking, no aero loss.

That's the most elegant solution. And you can cover as much or as little of a panel as you want.
