As some of you know, I've been without my Volt for a few days now because of brake problems
. I'm really bummed because I haven't even had the car for a month, and it's already in the shop. I probably won't get it back until later this week.
Prior to buying it, I swore up and down (and left and right) that I'd NEVER buy an American car because they were always having issues; so, I stuck with Toyota and Acura, which never left my side for more than a few hours for maintenance. When the Volt came out, I thought to myself, "Wow. Maybe American cars have finally leapfrogged the Japanese cars." So, I bought one. Now, in these last few days, I've felt loads of embarrassment as I've had to answer friends and family when they ask, "Where is your Volt?" and "Why are you driving this Malibu rental?"
So, to give the benefit of the doubt, I thought I'd do a little survey to find out if a) it's just my luck of the draw and b) if this just has to do with a model year. (There are several mentions around this board of 2013's having various issues.)
Thanks in advance!
