This review of the Gen 2 Voltec gave me a little insight into what a fine piece of technology we have at our fingertips.

I'm very proud of my Volt from the Voltec drive-train perspective. But contrary to GM's assertion about being able to integrate a complete car, I'm disappointed by that integration, and the inability of dealers to take care of all the coughs, buzzes, and rattles. Maybe I've been lucky, but I haven't bought a new car with this many annoying issues since 1985.

I completely agree with your assessment. We have a 2016 and 2017 and they were found to have some fairly egregious assembly faults: a loose shock bolt on the 2016 and a missing caliper bolt on the 2017.

If the sales campaign were to only expound on some of the characteristics of the power train like it's acceleration, low maintenance requirements and likely lack of fuel consumption for the majority of drivers, they wouldn't have had to twist dealers' arms to take them.
