It's not -always- that fast. Sometimes my Gen 1 Volt is quick, other times it can take upwards of 120 seconds to start. It depends on several factors I think, but I do believe they've increased the performance a ton over what it used to be.I just started both volts via the OnStar app. The gen 2 took 9.5 seconds to start and the gen 1 took 11.5 seconds (iPad in one hand with app and iPhone in the other with stopwatch). That is too long for you guys? Ironically, I did the gen 2 first and the time included inputting my pin.
