I am the second owner of a 2011 volt. I purchased one year ago and have driven about 4K 65% on electric. I absolutely love the car, it's my favorite car I've ever owned and that compares about 15 others, alot of luxury cars and many brand new!
That is not to say that there aren't issues. I have been battling the Service High Voltage Charging trouble code since about June. There is also a clicking starting to be noticeable from the front right which needs investigating.
Overall I love owning and driving it. I do have the ability and inclination to trade in for a newer Gen 1 or a Gen 2. Taking a quick look here in the forums there are many many more sticky threads for campaigns against known issues with Gen 2 as compared to Gen 1.
I'm hoping for some feedback - particularly from anyone who has owned both Gen 1 and 2 comparing the overall owner satisfaction and cost of ownership for each. Thanks in advance!
