I leave my volt idling all the time (if that's the correct term for sitting there, no ice, electric only, car on). The nice thing about the volt is that you can leave it running, exit the vehicle, and lock it with the fob. Obviously these other car owners must have the left keys inside and the doors unlocked.

What should be expected if someone leaves their car idling and unlocked? If you have two keys, you can leave a conventional car running and still lock the door. Not a new problem and not anything special about the Volt in this regard.

Agreed, except the volt is the first car I've owned with push button start where the keys don't need to be physically in the ignition switch and I don't need two keys to pull off this tactic.

Try that with a honda made after the late 90s. Doesn't work.
