So I've been a Volt owner for approximately FIVE days - 2013 w/26K miles, premium trim...and loving it. My beloved Honda Element was totaled a month ago by a red light running inattentive driver. Went from considering used to new and back to finally settling on used...so far DELIGHTED! The price was right and had everything I wanted. So it will do for a year and then trade up to a 2017 maybe.
