"Volt Owner - Real world experience"5.0 starson by GlenJ49
Pros: Who needs gas? - I drive less than 40 miles Monday-Friday -I don't.
I go to work and back home every day, charge up at night on 120 VAC and go to work the next day - no gas, and at 1/3-1/4 the cost per mile of gas when I use electricity.

Cons: So far the only negative that I can report is that the radio turns on when I want to check the energy flow, charge data or driving and climate control efficiency. So I lower the volume.
Summary: For those non-techies out there who do not understand batteries - The batteries don't die in 6-7 years, they typically fade away slowly, losing some of their charge storage ability, and there are companies out there who cannot wait to get their hands of these old batteries 10-15 years from now. They have plans to use these in energy storage - electric power production applications.
So do I like my 2011 VOLT, you bet I do. And I've been driving my Lexus RX300 for 11 years amd a RX350 for 2 years. The feel of the Volt is like my RX and the quietness is the same, as reported to me by another Lexus owner.
Thanks for your submission!
