Give the poor kid a break, he is in love.....

To actually answer your question, with a cost being forcast between $28K and $40K, and not having a place to charge up from grid based power, I think I would tell you to look into something more economical with great mileage to get you through until you complete your education.

There are other cars out there that will cost less than a Volt that will get 50+ MPG, which is what the Volt is expected to get using the ICE to keep the batteries in "sustaining" mode.

My advice? If I was your age again I would get the smallest place that is still comfotable then buy a cheap, safe car that gets good gas mileage. Then I would save like crazy. Young people usually live beyond their means and never get ahead. Invest the money in conservative mutual funds and watch it grow and grow. It feels so good I promise. The best feeling in the world is independence. ;)

With the market fluctuating like it is, I just use CD's. Every 5k or so I put away in a 4% yield CD... low I know but it is safe and the money is protected guaranteed.

EDIT: Also thank you for the replies everyone
