Very complex car sometime even the mechanic doesn't know how to replace or fix it. Already spent 6500 on maintenance. I do not recommend chevy volt to anyone. Customer support is very poor. Warranty issues very poor. I will never buy domestic car again after such a bad experience with the vehicle.

Quite & fun car to drive but needs improve in intr

Performance of how quickly it accelerates, how well it handles turns and how quite the ride are consistent with the reviews of others. I especially like the adaptive cruise control that comes with 2017; this feature along with lane assist feature may not work perfectly all the time but comes handy in highly congested traffic and if I ever doze off while driving. Four things that I wish Chevy Volt had to make it a nearly perfect car are : 1) have option of moon roof 2) home link 3) have handle above the window for passenger to hold onto 4) front camera view to inform how close my front bump is.

Purchased the car January 2, 2016. I had researched and driven every make and model that came close to 30 miles per gallon freeway and during this I found the 2016 Chevrolet volt was being delivered to dealers soon. I called dealerships within a three hundred mile radius and when the first one was delivered I rushed down state and test drove the volt. To say I was instantly impressed would be an understatement. This car is so well engineered and performance and economy were so outstanding that I instantly ordered a silver LT with comfort package and bose sound. I have 13000 miles on the car now and not a single issue. Charge overnight on 110 (solar equipped residence) and cost to drive is next to nothing. Was previously spending $300 a month on gas. Remember when you first got your license and you used to find reasons to go to the store just so you could drive? This car produces the same emotional response. A little sappy, I know, but WOW. GM has designed a wonderful combination of efficiency, technology and performance.

Love the volt

I grew up driving triumph sports cars and then moved on the Honda Accords. The volt is quicker than a Spitfire and better than a Honda Accord in every way. I can carry my wife, my daughter, my dog and a bicycle without any trouble. I'm averaging over 150 miles per gallon and since I have solar panels the cost of operation is about .02 cents per mile. I drive about 35 miles a day and then when I take the occasional 100 mile trip it uses one gallon of gas. I had a bad back until I bought the volt and now have no problems with long trips etc. I can not think of one thing that I have given up by driving an electric car.

Volt and Solar Panels are a great payback

Car handles very nice, fun to drive. No complaints. You can read other reviews for the "car" reviews, I am going to talk about the financial aspects. Last year I bought a 24 panel Solar System that cost $19,000, after a Federal Tax Credit, the net cost was $13,300. I made sure I purchased enough panels to cover my household needs and future plans for an electric car. After 1 year, I confirmed I had sized my system correctly. My monthly electric bill went from $200 to zero. Per plan, I had credit from with PG&E's. So I needed a second car for my teenage sons to drive. Alternate choice would be Honda Civic. Cost for new mid-level Civic $22,000 out the door. Long story, short - kids are driving my 3 old year old car, Dad is driving new Volt. I walked out of the Chevy dealer minus $32,300. I did purchase 220v charge cord and had a 220v receptacle installed in the garage - total cost $900. I will get a Federal Tax rebate of $7500, a state rebate of $1500 and because of I live in the San Joachim Valley, the Air Pollution Control District will give me a rebate of $2000. Net cost of car and charger is $22,200 - about the same as a new Civic. My gas bill should drop $175 per month. Total investment: $13,300 (solar panels) + $200 (premium of Volt over Civic) = $13,500. Monthly savings: $200 (household electric) + $175 (auto gas) = $375. Result: my investment will be paid back in 3 years!

Volt vs Tesla is a no brainer

I love the Tesla but the Volt was 1/3 the price and has a backup gas option if you run out of electricity. This is a must when living in a big state like California. Or for me who runs the AC full blast. I've driven the Volt Premier a month a only put in 2 gallons. It's also very quick off the line, especially in Sport mode. Great purchase.

6 Months 5K Miles No Gas - Great Car

If your daily commute is less than 50 miles, you won't need gas. 6 months and I still have the same tank that came with the car. Rear seat is tight but good for 2. Ride is smooth with excellent steering feel. It feels like a firm, heavy ride. In cold months with the use of the heater the range takes at hit in the 40s but in the warmer months range could be in the 60s - I'm usually achieving the advertised 53 or higher. Using the heated seats, heated steering wheel and climate control on "economy" helps. Fit and finish of the car is upscale and the technology works great. Side view could be better due to wide A pillars, but the side vehicle alert helps to detect other vehicles. The Bose system is beautiful - a little weak when new, but after a few weeks the sound fills out and it's great. There was an intermittent small rattle when I first got the car, but has since settled. Price is on the high side, but when you weigh the advanced technology, gas savings and an additional $7,500 tax credit - it brings the car into range so it's really not that high. All in all I'm enjoying the car very much. I haven't had any mechanical problems and have found the quality to be high above expectations.

The First Volt was Great, the 2016 is Excellent.

The new Volt is improved in virtually all aspects over a car that was the best small hybrid to start with. Longer EV range, bigger charger, more powerful, quieter, better handling. Nearly all the quirks of the our 2013 Volt were improved on. The 2016 is a 100% new car. I would argue it's the world's finest "green" car at any price. I simply can't think of another green car with the right balance of price, features, performance, cargo, etc. Update: We liked our first two Volts so much, we now have 3. We added a 2017 with all the advanced safety features and Adaptive Cruise Control. Everybody loves it.

Great car, Powerful EV

2 weeks so far, Car is awesome. EV mode power is great, never felt the EV mode. It's as good as normal gas engine car. Exterior and interior designs are fantastic. Love Apply car play and Andriod auto integration, it just seemless. Few -ves : 1. Rear visibility is not great, the trunk design blocks for better visibility. 2. Rear middle seat if ok for Kids, but big kids finds it difficult to get in and out. Also you wont have option to move door to door, as the center block is on your way

There is no adjustment for lumbar support. I got such a good deal on the car, I convinced myself the seat would be good enough, but with any extended drive I Notice the lack of lumbar support. Also , in the position I am most comfortable, the steering wheel blocks the digital readout for speed, so I have no idea how fast I am going. Visibility is poor in all directions. The ride is smooth and quiet, acceleration is decent, and I love not using gas.I ordered a small inflatable pillow for my back, hope that solves the comfort problem. I take my dog to the beach a lot, so I like having a hatchback and folding the rear seats down.

I've had my eye on the Volts for years - as an idea, it was extremely compelling, but the execution was (for obvious reasons) very 'first generation'. When Chevy refined the design for the second generation I was cautiously optimistic, and I'm happy to say that it has exceeded my every expectation. No, it is not a car for everyone - the technology that makes the Volt work is still costly, so the price is still a bit higher than more traditional vehicles of a similar size. It's also on the smaller side for a sedan, though not at all uncomfortable for my family (my wife and six-month old in his large carseat fit just fine). You can get EV-only vehicles with longer electric range, of course, and while its performance is respectable, you can get more raw power from some other vehicles within its price range. But while other vehicles may outperform in one area or another, there are none that offer quite the same perfect blend or attention to detail that Chevrolet has executed here. The electric range is more than sufficient for the majority of trips, the charging is easy, and the gas generator (which is seamless and very quiet) is not only fuel efficient but gives it fantastic real-world driving range and none of the 'range anxiety' than you'd get with a typical hybrid or gas-powered car. What's more, while it may not be a performance powerhouse, the car accelerates and brakes well, the handling is enjoyable, and the ride is comfortable. You don't always get all of that in these efficiency-first vehicles, so it's very much appreciated. Being a new father, safety is a huge priority for me, and the Volts are safe vehicles - especially with the addition of the Driver Confidence packages, which add sensors for the usual bevy of warning and assist technologies. But beyond that, LEDs and wraparound lighting give it great visibility for other drivers and the headlamps are nice and bright without being obnoxious. I haven't had a chance to see the IntelliBeam automatic high-beams in action yet, but it's a nice touch and will no doubt prove useful provided it works well. Really though, the attention to detail and extra touches to add value are what seal the deal. There are many options to make the remote start and passive lock/unlock system conform to your needs and preferences, which adds a lot of convenience. You can also adjust the charging to help save more money with location and time-based charging preferences, and you can monitor charging status with the OnStar app. Speaking of OnStar, the three years of the top-level plan included free certainly doesn't hurt the value proposition, adding that much more safety, security, and convenience for no cost. On a less practical but no less appreciated note, everything on the car just seems very carefully and attentively designed, from sportier exterior and easy-to-open-and-close hatch to the subtle ambient lighting (with more pronounced lighting available as an option) to the layout of the dash to the quick and responsive touchscreen to the various sounds the car makes in operation (startup, shutdown, electronic brake, etc). It bears mentioning that my dealer's service department, who are always honest and whom I have a very good relationship with, have nothing but positive things to say about the first generation's reliability and longevity, and the second generation looks to improve upon that formula. It's all just very well-put-together, and with the rebates ($9000 off the one I purchased, after government tax credit and before dealer discount) it is an extremely compelling vehicle in every way that the previous model was, and many more ways that the outgoing design wasn't. This is my fourth car and third new car purchase within the past three years, and far and away the best of the pack.

RIP combustion engine

I switched from BMW 328 to this car and never looked back! The concept of a plug-in hybrid car is absolutely a great idea. And Volt 2016 is an excellent implementation of this car category. When it runs on EV mode (for about 40+ miles), you get a fantastic feeling of speed and serenity. When it switches to hybrid, it drives just like ordinary car. My last gasoline fill-up was 1500 miles earlier. I use ordinary 110/120 outlet to charge it. Since my commute does not deplete the battery completely, I get a full overnight charge. But if the battery is completely empty, it takes about 10+ hours to charge on 110/120 volts outlet. I have a higher level trip so the car comes with all sort of electronics. All around sensors and backup camera work perfect. The acceleration is pretty good (but not at Tesla level), however it does give you a good sensation of high electric engine torque. Coming from BMW, this was one of the important selling points for me. I don’t have quality problem so far. I cannot judge this aspect of the car yet. But I assume since the combustion engine rarely kicks in, at least in the engine department, it should be trouble free. My wish list for improving the car includes rear window wipers, better visibility through A pillar (a major design oversight) and electric seat adjustment.

Awesome car

Likes-I like driving my car. Its pretty quiet inside except on freeways. Gas Engine is quiet. Performed well on road trip through the Sierras. Climbing hills is a breeze and coming down charges the battery. The entertainment system works good. Overall, i like my car, but it has had a few issues with design,fit and finish, quality. A few software updates fixed some minor performance issues. Great car for 25k after govt incentives.

Love being in my EV vehicle

This is the car you want if you don't like to pay for gas yet you don't want to be completely dependent on electricity. I have only gone to the gas station once since I purchased the Chevy Volt. Since my last fill-up of gas I am at 250 mpg. My mpg since I got the car sits at 140 mpg. This is an extremely sporty car compared to the Prius. There is a lack of space in the rear seats but is surprisingly roomy in the front and has a decent amount of trunk space. You will be amazed at the amount of power/acceleration this EV has!! The best part of this car is the cost. With the Federal and State rebates, the hit to the pocket book is minimal.

I love my Volt!

I have had the car for 3 months and I'm really happy with it, when the weather is cold I preheat the car and is very comfortable and the heat on the steering wheel is a plus. It has great acceleration. I do plug the car every other day since one charge is enough for me to commute to work 20 miles per day.

For the cost of the car i was expecting a lot more.. So far i have owned it a few months, in that time i am at 26 times to the dealership.. It is constantly broken.. MPG in the winter is terrible.. I average 23mpg city, and about 30mpg highway.. the 1999 Sienna i owned was getting a little less, but it was also much bigger, and had 379K miles on it.. (18City 28Hwy).. The constantly broken issue is about on par for GM though, i was expecting post bail-out that they had gotten there things together.. no such luck.. The resale value is terrible, lost over 4K bucks in 3 months of ownership.. Cost to fill it is cheap, but charging it in the dead of winter is about the same as getting 23miles per 5 bucks.. which is worse than when gas was at it's highest price.. now that it's still cheap.. i feel ripped off.. The dealerships are good, mostly.. But the GM support of issues makes me cringe.. I would sell it, but i would take a bath and it has next to no miles on it.. Climate control is better than on the previous generation, however they still haven't fixed the main issue, which was with heat on in the winter say goodbye to range.. Good: It's quick off the line, like rocket quick.. low end torque and no noise is fun,.. The radio is fantastic, sounds like the old custom stereo's of the 90s seats are very comfortable Thinking... Bad: They use the cheapest strut mounts on the planet.. (They rattle) The heat is expensive The car is expensive for the MPG you actually get.. (Good warm climate car) Reliability is horrific.. GM support is worthless, what's the point of a warranty.. I have driven every other GM product as a loaner car, (the Volt is the nicest.. scary) The resale value is so bad, you are better off pushing it off a cliff.. It has zero nuts when you want to pass someone on the highway.. (1969 Beetle slow) The steering has issues on the previous version, and that makes me nervous.. (Like disconnecting, no way to turn issues) The electronic parking sensors beep when something is 20ft away but you can back the car into the wall in your garage and the sensors will never beep.. The stock tires are horrible in snow/rain.. and running non-eco tires will get you worse MPG. No Key fob issues, leaving you stranded places is a constant issue. (GM claims it's due to electrical wires.. Hmm isn't this thing electric)

Worth a look

This is a surprisingly well-made car. Quiet, smooth ride...with a comfortable drivers position. Rear seats are tight but comfortable. I have been exceeding 50 miles on a charge since taking delivery about 6 weeks ago, and have only used about 3 gallons of gas in my first 1000 miles. Lots of low-end torque ...this car really moves out from a stoplight. All the latest active safety features are available if you get the Premier version. You owe it to yourself to give this one a look if you're in the market for a compact, near-luxury vehicle. Price paid in this review is before the $7500 Federal tax credit.

i have wanted an electric vehicle for several years since I installed solar panels that could offset the cost of gasoline and to reduce pollution. I looked at the leaf and even tesla(way too expensive). The other EVs keep you tethered to a charging station for out of town trips. The second gen Chevy Volt finally had the electric range plus the gas engine backup for long distance travel, I needed so I took the plunge. With the tax credit and dealer discounts my fully loaded premier with both safety/confidence packages ended up costing $26,500 before tax and license. This car has the smoothest ride and is the most fun to drive I've ever had. It gets 55 miles on a full electric charge and should go up on warmer weather. I'm also seeing almost 50 mpg on gas but haven't used much yet. The safety packages are worth it and have helped miss several potential accidents. It's very comfortable in the front and I'm 5' 11". The back is comfortable too but tight if you are tall but we usually only have two in the car. Plugging in using the 110 power cord works for me as I don't mind the overnight charging. Using the brake paddle on the steering wheel I can drive mostly with just one pedal. The infotainment and navigation work better than I expected and the touchscreen reminds me of my iPad in how well it responds. Cargo space is decently sized for a compact car. Great design and features at a price that rivals mostly inferior competitors. The quality of the build seems above average and is great entry into the electric car market with no worries about range.

loved how olid and quiet and smooth this felt on smooth road at dealer and bough it. but when you hit bumps the cars bottom weight makes it JOLT. rear passengers hit their heads on the slanted door opening getting in or out and heads touch ceiling which is at upholstery and glass window of hatchback. the car is fun driven alone when you can twist and turn around corners blithely, or accelerate like a race car. only getting 34 mpg. supposed to be 42 (no i dont always race around. im a very cautious normal driver. the paddle brake on steering wheel lurches and gives motion sickness. its too touchy. cant apply it gently. interiors electronic lights hard to understand, hard to tell if car on or off.

You CANNOT buy the integrated screen navigation system on the LT version! NOT available at any price. But you can get the integrated NAV with the Premier version. UNFORTUNATELY, the Premier version is only offered in two interior color options -- totally black or combined black and orange (they call it brandy but it's orange -- look at the Volt website -- and that is what the dealer salesman called it "Let's face it, it's really orange."). WHY would the Premier version offer only two interior color options and yet the less expensive LT version (w/ no Nav touch screen system available) offers a wide variety of interior colors in cloth or leather? The more expensive Premier version interior options are MORE restricted than the options available on the less expensive LT options -- go figure! Question 1: So what is wrong with black interior? Answer: The black interior gets really hot in summer and not everyone wants black. Question 2: What's wrong with the black and orange interior? Answer: Look at this ridiculous color combination. It's so ridiculous that you will have a hard time finding a display model with this orange/black interior -- it appears that GM / Chevy wants to force you to get black interior by making it the only solid color option. A shame that GM thinks it's fine to offer the Premier version with fewer options than those available on the stripped down LT version of the Volt.

I highly recommend the Chevy Volt. The technology, efficiency and overall look of the vehicle is tremendous.

I love my new Volt!

After 7000 plus miles, I still love my Volt. I have only put in gas once and still have gas in tank to drive 60 plus miles. Parking is also easier because there are spaces for hybrid cars, not to say the ability to be able to drive in car pool lanes.

Do not expect a great deal on prices as you will not get it. Do not expect to achieve the electric engine mileage advertised as this mileage was calculated at the 45-50 mph driving and probably on a level road. After charging to a full charge, you probably will see 44 to 48 electric miles available in lieu of the 50+ advertised. The charge time on an empty electric battery is too much time....10 hours or so and for the price of this vehicle, one would think GM would sell the 240 charging setup but they do not. Overall, despite all this, we like the car as most of our driving is within the 50 mile range of home. To date, we have about 700 miles on the car and still a half tank of gas remaining. If you buy, do not forget your electric auto tax rebates as it brings down the price to a more reasonable price.

I have been waiting for over a year to buy this car and finally was able to get one on Jan. 9. On Jan. 11 I took it for its first trip to work and it still has not made it home from the service dept. Then engine light is on, it does not use the battery power at all, and the engine idles extremely fast. The service dept has been in touch with the main engineers of GM who told them mine is one of 7 cars with this issue and they don't know what it is or how to fix it. I called GM's main customer service dept and the guy I talked to extended his sympathy and said he would get back to me by Jan. 18. I am sick about this. I paid $42K to drive this out of the lot. I don't know I can do. This is only my second new car, the last one was a Scion that still runs great. If anyone can advise on how to get this resolved I would appreciate it. Talk about buyer's remorse. Update 2/5/15. I was in daily contact with Chevy customer service while they were trying to figure out what was wrong with the car. They sent a team of engineers from Detroit to the dealer on two separate occasions. They could not figure out what was wrong with it. On January 29 they authorized a buyback. Today I am signing the final papers and they are refunding the purchase price plus tax and all other fees I paid. They were very speedy in getting this moving as soon as I requested it. Of course they offered to replace with a different Volt but I said I could never feel comfortable in one after this experience. So now I need to figure out what kind of car I do want. LIke I said, I had my eye on this car for over a year and so know nothing about other makes and models. I'm sure they will figure out what was wrong with this car and get it on the road. The dealer did say that Chevy told him there are a handful of other cars in the country with this same problem.

Upgrades from 2013 to 2016 model. Ride is even better as is handling. Not wild about the new display software and I hope to get used to it. The Massachusetts incentive ($2500) makes it a very attractive buy/lease.

I'm 47 years old and this is my 77th car! Crazy!

Yes. The title of the review is true. I'm 47 years old and I have had 77 cars. My wife thinks I'm crazy but I just love cars. I usually buy cars with great resale value and have been able to finance at very low rates over the last 10 years. Usually after a few years I owe less than what the car is worth so I can easily get a new car and keep my payment the same. I have had a ton of Hondas and Acuras over the years an I worked for Acura for a few years so I have been biased towards those brands. Mazda and Nissan are also very high on my preference list. I owned domestic vehicles back in the 80's( Mainly GM products) Actually never owned a domestic vehicle that was not GM. From 1990 to 2015 I drove mostly Japanese import cars. They were reliable , they had good resale and they got good gas mileage. Well about a month ago that all changed and I bought a 2016 newly designed Chevy Volt. I am one of the first people in our area to drive one and I think I am one of the first to write a review. This is actually the first review I have ever written but I am extremely excited about the car and I wanted to send this in. I bought the LT model with leather and heated seats. After the $7500 tax rebate my car payment is about the same as the car I traded in( 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek) My payment is about $390 a month or $13 a day. I used to spend about $8 a day on gas($2400 year) Since I got the Volt I have spent less than $30 on gas. It only costs $15 to fill it up too. I think I am going to save $200 a month on gas plus the annoyance of just going to the gas station. So yes, the car is very economical but that is just the beginning. The car is really fast compared to cars I have had before.( No, not as fast as the Tesla which I drove as well) Zero to 60 is impressive with the Volt but zero to 30 is even more impressive. The car is so much fun to drive and handles beautifully. It is definitely the quietest cat I ever had. I snore louder than this car. The Volt is super sharp too but not snobby. It is a fresh design inside and out and has every option you can ever want. I love Hondas because of their ergonomics but the Chevy Volt was built to fit the likes of the driver. Some cars are just built and then you must adjust to the car. The Volt feels right from the very first mile. I love driving the Volt and actually look for reasons to go out and drive it. I have not had a car that felt cool in a while. I did not think you could be cool and practical at the same time. I think GM has a real winner with this car and I was even thinking of investing in GM stock. A good friend of mine always would poke fun of me for not driving a car made in america. I called him the other day to tell him that I was driving a 2016 Chevy Volt and he was excited for me and a little envious. He wanted to buy one to but has a minivan instead because he has a big family. Ok I know it has only been a month or so but I am beyond impressed and I am looking forward to keeping this car for a while. I love the fact that I hardly ever need to put gas in the car and I also love the fact that I do not have range anxiety like on other plug in cars. After the first 50 or so miles the gas engine kicks in and I can go over 350 more miles. A lot of my friends thought I would get to 100 cars by the time I am 70. I think the Chevy Volt might put the breaks on all my car buying. It will be hard to find a comparable replacement .

We really wanted to like this car

We live in southern California and plug-in electric cars get to use the HOV (car pool) lane even if they are the sole occupant. I drove the Volt twice and my wife drove it twice. Overall I was impressed with the technology and the electric range. But we just could not get over how cramped it felt, especially in the back seat. Just didn't feel safe with your head being just inches from the side window. I am not a Prius fan but I will say that Chevy could learn a thing or two about packaging by looking at the Prius. If this car was bigger and had more room, we likely would have bought it. Seems like Chevy was fixated on giving it a big electric range at the cost of interior space. I would have gladly traded 5-10 miles of range for a car that was bigger.

Excellent upgrade to the original

This is simply an excellent vehicle. For most people it should yield sufficient EV range that they'll never need to use the gas engine; for the remainder the occasional dip into the gas tank will get them wherever they need to go in comfort. For those who own one of the originals, the extra range will help to reduce that odd range anxiety that you get when even though you know you could go anywhere you'd still rather not use gas. And the car is better, I think, in almost every way, than an already impressive forebear. Better visibility, more ergonomic, more powerful. And the "maximum regen" paddle on the back of the steering wheel a useful addition to avoid wondering exactly how hard to brake before engaging the discs. The only area of significant criticism is the iPod integration. For some reason it's proving to be at best erratic. But overall a minor niggle in the enjoyment, and the CarPlay feature is excellent. The only wish is that GM had included a 6.6kW charger, but
