Long time follower/stalker of this forum has finally purchased a 2014 Fully loaded Chevy Volt. This is my second day of ownership and the vehicle is absolutely fantastic. To be honest, I did have my doubts and began second guessing myself on the thought of giving up the Acura TL and passing on a purchase of a Lexus, but those doubts have been erased. Those who were skeptical are no longer once they set foot in the Volt (six conversion so far;) ). The other half of the battle is the convincing my counterparts that the Volt is actually an upgrade in comparison to my previous rides. :cool: Awesome Car and awesome ride!

Glad to be part of Team Volt!

ELR (Volt's Caddy version) is the smoothest and most quiet car I have ever driven. Road trips are a dream compared to other cars. Commuting is also a lot less stressful.

I really wanted to make the ELR happen, but my car adopted a car seat 7 months ago. Shucks.... But if the Volt is great, I can't imagine driving an ELR everyday.

Your post is the perfect example of how the car sells itself once people get in and drive it or in it. GM has relied on this method of marketing from the start and it works, but is not sufficient to build exponentially increasing volume. (at least not yet) On an optimistic note for new Volts, I cautiously predict near-record sales for March. (2,500-3000) Selling well in CA.

Which is where that whole "Bolt for ride sharing services" plan made a lot of sense.

Same boat here, 2014, Summit White and I've had it just shy of 2 weeks. Great car. Even with an 84 mile (round trip) commute and if I'm able to charge at work I'm getting 100-140 MPG (figured out a new method yesterday). I truly do feel like an ambassador with all of the questions I'm asked about the car.
