New to me 2013 Volt

After it became clear that my wife and I needed a bigger car than our 2009 Smart Passion Coupe (in order to respond to calls to transport our granddaughters), I researched hybrids like the Prius and Lexus CT200h as well as Chevy's Volt. The Volt won, primarily because it covers so many miles on battery alone before the ICE kicks in, and secondly, because the ICE powers a generator rather than directly driving the car. This preserves the "electric character" of the car even when the battery range is exhausted. Very cool. Furthermore, our typical daily drive rarely covers more miles than the battery range. In short, we are loving the "New to Us 2013."

I'm new to this website, and very excited to have found it. It answers so many questions you just can't get from the owner's manual. The one question I am still trying to find an answer to is: Is there any way to disable the annoying horn alarms...beeps when it locks the doors; beeps when you plug it in. I live in a townhouse and worry that I'm annoying the heck out of my neighbors!
