Should I be looking for a car that has more electric, gas, or combination mileage? Or does it matter?the center display has an energy display which shows "lifetime" gas mileage. Using this and the total odometer miles you can calculate the approximate ration of electric vs range extended miles.
Tough to answer, Many volts (ok, dozens) on volt stats are over 100,000 miles and many over 50,000 electric. none of those people have come on this forum and reported distance related wear/ failures recently... This is just a guess: Hard driving will have more effect on future maintenance costs than distance will. if that's correct, the type of miles won't matter....Should I be looking for a car that has more electric, gas, or combination mileage? Or does it matter?
In principle, if you assume that the engine and battery degrade at similar rates, someone who expects to drive mostly electric should look for cars with lots of gas miles, and someone who expects to drive long trips should look for a Volt with mostly electric miles.Should I be looking for a car that has more electric, gas, or combination mileage?

Very minor differences in features . No difference in quality . My daughter's 2012 seems to have a slightly larger battery capacity than my 2012 . The 2013 has the hold mode and the kw meter that I do use when I drive it .Hey Sinnombre, do you see any quality differences between the 2012 & 2013 volts you own?
