I use to have a Wrangler. Jeep wave, I miss that. I don't really miss the JK though, just wasn't my thing. Do you wave to other Volt owners?

It was standard practice to wave or quick flash the lights when I had my Mini, but I've only waved a few times with the Volt. The reception from other Volt drivers seems to be lukewarm at best. Perhaps it's just not as widely known in the Volt community.

I use the pedestrian honk at the end of the turn signal stalk (gen1). Few people honk back though, but I still do it.

I wave or honk, but Volt owners don't look here in SL. They don't seem to know they're in an exclusive club here.

In NJ, you have to be careful when you put your hand up. :p
Isn't the proper etiquette to use both arms, one for the fist pump and the other as a brace holding the bicep above the elbow?

Back in the sixties and seventies all sports car drivers waved at each other, and of course, I was one of them. In the last twelve years or so I had a series of Corvettes, and found that they do the same thing. However, I seldom notice another Volt especially a Gen 2 on the road, unless they're sitting next to me at a light. So I guess the answer is no.

No one seems to be aware or simply observant while on the road. I observe everyone and everything. All I ever see are people staring at their phones or they just look miserable. Lol



But I'll throw up the V if I make eye contact with another Volt, especially if my special passenger is with me. She gets a kick out of it. Even more so when the other Volt driver does it back!

You can use one hand, but you have to be careful with how many fingers you put up.

I never see another Volt here in Augusta, GA. I do see lots of shiny new four door pickup trucks with nothing in the truck bed.

Both generations are pretty rare in my area but someone who sells Volt accessories (I'm lookin at you Scarlet) told me the proper wave is the V. I do it all the time but have never had a response. I have found that many of the Ford products have a lot of chromed up grille and it takes a bit to determine if it is an oncoming Volt or a Ford.

As a long time Corvette owner (since 1972) the "wave" or "V" finger wave was protocol and a cool part of the community. But lately that bit of history and commerade seems to be dying. I will flash my lights when I see an approaching Volt and wave if the owner is attentive.

My arm would be exhausted around here.
