Chevrolet dealerships halt Volt sales due to tool costs: Some...

Jan 2, 2013 Full story: AutoWeek 95

Some Chevrolet dealers have stopped carrying the Volt after deciding that their sales didn't justify an additional $5,100 for tools to service the plug-in hybrid.

Hey, I noticed that you didn't come back with any more "facts" about the Volt. Wassamatter? You came down to the level of the other troll on this thread? Down to calling people names? Run out of "facts"?

Here's something for you:

http://gm-volt.com/2010/10/12/chevrolet-volt-...

In this article, GM states:

The core element is the large electric motor which always turns the driveshaft. The car is always electrically driven. The motor turns the sun gear of a planetary gearset which itself is then connected to the driveshaft through two sets of reduction gears set at a 7 to 1 combined gear reduction ratio. In this state of driving the generator is used to only recapture kinetic energy during motor braking and coasting which is then fed back into the battery. It is grounded to the crankcase by one of three clutches.

The next drive state occurs when the car is still in EV mode, but reaches around 70 mph. At that point the 111 kw electric motor begins to spin too rapidly and loses efficiency, around 6500 rpm. To improve efficiency the system kicks in the smaller 55 kw electric motor to operate in parallel. GM thought a lot about this element and considered instead ...(and here it comes Soalrman)... adding a second gear ... but figured they could simply use the generator (small e motor) because at these speeds,“it’s not doing anything,” said Nitz.“It’s just along for the ride.”

There is only one gear! It is a 7 to 1 gear ratio. From 0 to 100 mph, there is no shifting.

http://cars.csmonitor.com/q/1004/9986/Does-th...

The Volt has a one speed, direct drive transmission. That means, one gear. No shifting. It is a planetary gear set. Much less complicated than a regular transmission. There is no transmission for shifting of gears. All the "gears" on the shifter are software that tell the car what to do.

Here's your video. I called it "For The Volt Hater, Soalrman"



Here are 2 other videos I made for 2 other haters:

YOUR so called "facts" are of no consequence apparently. You send a link to the Motor Trend article in December of 2010,but fail to read and comprehend what was said. Motor Trend even drew pictures so even YOU could understand. Now you can't read or comprehend the Volt owner's manual, so you "provide" your own skewed misinformed videos "proving" YOUR myopic point. OF course you shift stoop! You "shift" from park, P to D or to L or to R, that is a manual action required to make the car move. The only thing here with one speed is YOUR stupidity. You really enjoy playing with your DIC don't you? Yeah, spin your little selector knob to see if you can find a display to misrepresent on your next Youtube propaganda video. Really, REALLY only "one" gear at a 7 to 1 ratio. Physically you need at least two, the volt has six gears according to YOUR link to Motor Trend. You and "Conservative" shall become known as lying SUCKERS.

I made another video for you. But just to show you that this is no spin, there is a personal message for you from me (in my voice). Of course, I'm in my beautiful 2012 Chevy Volt.

725 miles driven in 2013,.08 gallons of gas used. Try to figure out how I spun this one.

Well, thanks for the video. You have just proven MY point. Upper left hand corner of display, vehicle in Park, P circled. A picture of the transmission select application right there on YOUR "own" DIC. You still make claims that are NOT substantiated by YOUR boasts. You send links to the Motor Trend article of December 2010 but fail to read and comprehend your own link's content is obvious. Why didn't you send a link to the Car and Driver article? Perhaps they weren't as positive towards the Volt as you would like them to be? You have become a Government Motors shill. You have found the new Edsel, just wondering how long it will take for YOU to realize it? You have pointed out more reasons to NOT buy a Volt than to buy one. Is it or is it NOT true you said there are 100 Volt trained specialists for Chevy dealerships, is this in the State or in the Country? What are the odds of having an issue with the vehicle in a town with a Volt specialist at a dealership? So, would your rental car be a Volt? Until Chevy, Ford, Toyota, Honda get the hybrid formula right, I'll stick with a VW or Audi diesel. I can find dealerships that have service for all models. I can get a vehicle that is as cost effective to drive as a Volt or one of the other hybrids, without the complexity or need for specially trained mechanical staff with speciality tools. What YOU have done is tethered yourself to a vehicle that has reduced service and repair locations due to complexity. If you get outside of your "service area", you will find yourself right back in the fossil fuel age. You're basically tethered to a geographical area where you can find trained service personnel for your vehicle. You could have just as well as bought a juiced up golf cart to make a daily driver. You wouldn't happen to be an executive with GM would you? Driving a top hat vehicle to show off for the public?

Wow, your hatred becomes you. You still can't admit that GM said they thought about putting in a 2nd gear, but opted not to. They left it as a 1 gear car. Once again, R is only the motor spinning backwards. There is no reverse gear. D & L are the same ratio. Only software makes them different when backing off the "gas" pedal. You still can't admit that the "gear shifter" is electric. If they had put it on the computer screen, you would be complaining about that because then it wouldn't be like a normal car. You're just a hater. You will never admit that the shifter is just software. Poor lad. You live in Hate Land, USA. They lost the election, you know.

As of today, 215,000,000 Volt miles have been driven. No significant problems. 7,000,000 gallons of gas saved. That equates to about $725 savings per vehicle. When you take into account that 50% of all Volts are less than 9 months old, that is pretty hefty. My personal savings are over $1,300. I will save over $9,000 in gas alone in just 7 years. That includes my charging costs. That plus my $7,500 credit equals $16,500. You won't save a penny in your diesel.

As for that diesel car of yours being as efficient, they got their arses kicked in the Monte Carlo Alternative Fuel Rally. Oh yeah, by the Volt. That's why Diesel Car publication named the Volt Best Eco Car.

My gas usage millage when charging costs are not factored in is 414 mpg. When charging costs are factored in, it is 130 mpg. Either way, your diesel will never even come close to those numbers.

That is why Volt set the record for the most satisfied customers of any car ever produced. I know that pisses you off also.

I know the following piss you off:

Chevy Volt is the MOST AWARDED CAR IN HISTORY. Bar none.

The renowned Society Of Automotive Engineers named the Volt Best Engineered Car.

The Volt is the first American Car ever (E - V - E - R) to be given the title of European Car Of The Year.

But you have learned the following:

A. I own my own Volt

B. The Volt is a 1 gear, direct drive vehicle.

C. Electric Motors are not effected by thin air.

D. I don't buy gas like you do. You're tethered to the pump.

And nobody is tethered to anything. There are lots of videos of the people driving cross country in their Volts. Including videos of them going over the Rocky's and Pike's Peak. I'm not going to stoop to giving you any more links. You don't even believe what you see with your own eyes.

As I said before, when a real gear head like Jay Leno makes his daily driver a Volt, along with Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Juan Pablo Montoya, and many other gear heads, I'm proud to be called a sucker if they are suckers also.

Now go to bed, your parents will be angry if you stay up too late.

Go to paragraph 7. The throttle is by wire, the regenerative brakes are by wire, and the oversized shifter in the center console is just a fancy electric switch.

And by the way. You keep referring back to the MotorTrend article, claiming .... I do't know what. But that article says exactly what I have been telling you all along. 

It never states that there is ever a change of gear ratios. It states that the gears and clutches are for engaging and disengaging the small e motor and the ICE motor.

GM says there is only one gear. The shifter is an electric switch. Reverse is governed electronically because it is just the e motor spinning the planetary backwards. Brake pads aren't used to stop the car. Electric motors aren't affected by thin air (not even outer space).

You have to admit, you've learned a lot from me. Only your hatred keeps you from admitting it.

You are the one who needs to comprehend.

Also, the Volt just won another award. Consumer Guide Automotive's “Best Buy” honors in the electric car category.

Another award added to the many. The most awarded car in history.

Let me see, the Society of Automotive Engineers say the Volt is the worlds best engineered car. Solarman says it's crap. That's a hard call, but I'll trust the SAE.

Go to paragraph 8 (or 9). The Volt is a single speed, direct drive car. There is no shifting of gear ratios.

I have more.

That's my choice, That's what i prefer. The cars built today do not represent the America i grew up in. Actually not very much going on today represents what this country used to be. Some call it progress i call it decline.I do not trust the car built today. They are rolling tracking devices and can if need be disabled by a all powerful government. That is my rant.

Hatred!!! What a drama Queen. So, what was the previous post of YOURS about a 7 to 1 ratio? Do you now reject what you said then? I'm not seeing hatred from me but lying from YOU. Just because you can't recognize an automatic transmission doesn't mean you have to lie about it.Jay Leno has many cars and bikes, yeah he even drives his Stanley Steamer once in a while. He doesn't have a "daily driver", another lie. As for YOUR auto racing buddies, did they have to buy their cars or did GM give them the ride to get gullible guys like you to buy one? SUCKER!!!!

Yeah, I was just giving him some links to learn by. He still thinks the Volt has a 6 or 7 speed automatic transmission. I showed him about 5 links that explain the Volt is a 1 gear ratio, direct drive car. That is the last thing he is stuck on. The other lessons he learned, he pretty much dropped right away.

He thinks the car has gears because there is a shifter. I tried to tell him that GM could have put the "gears" on the computer screen because it is drive by wire. I provided him some links to that.

He's just a hater. Haters let hate get in the way of knowledge.
