I most certainly hope you will keep the wife and kids!!!
That might remain to be seen. Remember, for some reason the new volt always goes to the wife.I drove my 2016 home from purchasing it this Friday. I got 65 miles on the battery and this was with 4 people in the car...my wife and two daughters. Yep, its a keeper
I understand My original Volt stayed with me, so I would expect this one too as well. My wife drives an 08 Saturn Outlook XR all whee drive. It is aging well, but we would like to replace it. We debated getting a Pacifica Hybrid, but decided (when considering all factors, especially money) to get another Volt as our DD. We only use the Outlook on really long trips when we need the extra cargo. The Pacifica is not out of the question now, but it is doubtful.That might remain to be seen. Remember, for some reason the new volt always goes to the wife.
There is a rather complicated formula the car uses to compute your Mileage that shows up after charge. It takes samples from a lot of sources which essentially is ambient temperature and sensors that essentially monitor your style of driving. If you are a lead foot or easy on the pedal or if you stop on a dime rather than allow the car to coast and regen will have a dramatic affect on your projected mileage number.In the rough Chicago winter, I was lucky to hit 45 on a full charge in non-highway driving. Now that it's above 60 consistently (for now...), I've been getting over 60 miles per charge. I hope one day to break 70, but I don't think it's flat enough for that here.
