After my 10yo Acura RSX was totaled in an accident, I went to my local dealer and bought a 2013 Volt - the only car I considered...this is day 3 and I'm so excited!! Such a cool car...it's super fun to drive, and I love being part of the EV revolution...it's the way of the future and the Volt is at the forefront. Still learning all of the features. Seems I have a lot to learn about the best way to drive...perusing the thread about D vs. L left me confused, so I'll have to do some research and experiment. I want to be able to max my battery life. I like manual transmission, but I'm digging this new way of driving. My accident definitely had a silver lining - I'm now a proud and happy Volt owner. And I'm pleased to join this forum of euphoric Volt enthusiasts.
