Is Sparkie a taxi or is it's owner a masochist? 80,000 miles a year for 5 years is insane, that's at least 4 hours of driving every single day, fine if you are driving a truck but as a commute that would be horrible.

GM should really do some huge event for him. It would be a great PR and advertising opportunity to brag about the reliability of the Volt. Maybe even give him a new gen 2. Bravo sir, Bravo!

Oh, I thought that those batteries were $70,000 and had to be replaced annually. Yes, I hope that this 400,000-miler does get broad coverage in the "fake news" network.

Here is a youtube made by Erick Belmer. The sound is low on my system but I think that he said he has replaced wheel bearings a few times due to potholes and debris. Working for GM has perks: he pays for labor, they pay for parts.

Erick announced on the same video - see commentaries - he changed jobs and he's a lot closer to home now. I don't think he'll get to 400 000 miles millage soon.

He drove almost 5,000 miles in August...so doesn't look like he's slowed down much at all. Maybe "closer" means only a 150 mile R/T commute instead of 200. Lol

That video was 15 months ago, and he's added at least 200 miles since Wednesday. "A lot closer" is pretty relative.
