"Worth the cost"4.0 starson by Gmvolt
Pros: Luxury trim, ride, and finish. Great mileage, cool gadgets. My kids love the rear bucket seats.
Cons: Always feel guilty exceeding the all electric range because I know it will lower my lifetime mpg. I have experienced some visibility issues, particularly when intersecting streets are not at right angles.
Summary: This is by far the nicest car I have ever owned. I've had a couple cars in the mid $30k range and this is a whole world apart with the premium trim package, and all the cool gadgets (onstar, XM, bluetooth, the USB for the ipod, the smartphone app. etc...).
I'm probably a little outside the target market as I drive more than 40 miles a day. I'm finding I do about 60 miles burning about 1/2 gallon, but even at that rate I'll only need to buy 8 gallons or so every 1000 miles which works out to around 125 mpg.
I didn't give it 5 stars because I am a little disappointed that it doesn't get at least 40 mpg in gas burning mode, and while I'm consistently getting 30-35 miles of electric range I haven't broken 40 yet, so the 35-50 mile claims by GM haven't panned out for me yet.
But don't get me wrong, I love the car, there is just always room for improvement.
Thanks for your submission!
