Hello All- nice Forum

Bought a 2014 Volt 7/1/16.

Ashen Grey
Black Leather
Safety 1 and 2
Bose
NAV
23,000

So far so good- my commute is 43.5 miles from Santa Cruz to Mountain View, CA. I make it home on a full charge and use .1 gal to come to work. I have solar so I only pay 1.40 to recharge at work. At $2.90 a gal I save about $36 per week in gas from my previous car that got 28 mpg.

Car is very tight and obviously quiet. I drive in L on the way home over the Santa Cruz mountains- which is how I can make 43.5 miles on a change. I do hit 75mph 1/2 of the way on the highway. I also always drive in Sport Mode.

Welcome aboard!

Nice that a 2014 can almost get you 100% off of gas since you can charge at work. If you get a used 2016 in a few years - You'll be able to make it 100% on EV for your daily commute - with miles left over. :)
