From the guy who says he never calls people names: obnoxious little creeps .... Arrogant little jerks ... Just in the last couple posts.

Anyway ... he can't see that 5 people from MI posted that they were Volt owners and hated the car. All within 2 months. There aren't 5 Volt owners in MI all together!! It's Petey!!!

Nobody that hates Obama, or GM or the union or subsidies is going to buy a Volt! Wow, Mr. Hater,(I'm going to show him the respect he deserves from now on), talk about being in denial!!!

And talk about insulting my intelligence. He tries to make it look as if I'm not aware that companies don't put the fleet cars in the driver's name.

It certainly doesn't mean they own the car. Mr. Hater, the reason they put the fleet cars in the drivers name is for legal purposes. Should the driver go to a bar and get drunk and then kill a family of 5 on the way home, the company doesn't want their name on the tag.

Too Funny.
That's very true...

gov motors full of the marketing hype...

which is directed at selling their over priced "ripoffs"...

to anyone who is out to ruin the American Economy.

Why else do they allow such high gas prices.

One of the negatives the hater posted on page 156 / post # 3245.

"Low power and gasser comparable fuel economy at highway speeds."

The car responds exactly the same in gas mode as it does in electric mode. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BECAUSE IT IS STILL ELECTRIC!!!

Only the electric motor propels the car. The electric motor has 275 ft. lbs. of torque. The gas engine is a generator. It generates electricity for the battery, which in turn sends power to the E motor. The car is a series hybrid, not a parallel hybrid.

I use 1.2 gals. of gas for an 82 mile round trip, on the freeway. Hmmmm .... what gasser can do that? The fact that he states the car has low power on the freeway proves he lies. He will never find that in any web site.

To be cont'd.

Mr. Hater needs to study series hybrid vs. parallel hybrid. After all, this is a Volt vs. Prius forum. The Volt is a series hybrid. The Prius is a parallel hybrid.

Even the plug in Prius is a form of a parallel hybrid. That is why it can't go over 60 mph in E.

Just sticking to the forum topic.

Re name calling.

Mr." Volt Hater Hater" takes a lot of liberty with the truth.
He overlooks the half dozen or so recent posts where "Root" calls me names--and not pretty ones.
All I've done is respond to those crude insults by "Root".
After all, haven't we been told by the site Administrator that the rule is "An eye for an eye"!!

Then Mr. "Volt Hater Hater" overlooks the fact that he's tossed a dozen or so name calling spitballs in my direction too.

Funny how some folks deliberately overlook their own misdeeds in order to score points.

Mr. "Volt Hater Hater", you aren't playing fair---again. Misrepresentation and false innuendo isn't kosher.

Mr. "Volt Hater Hater" really has a vivid imagination.
Either that or he's delusional.

Mr. "Volt Hater Hater" says I hate Obama, GM, the Union....etc.
Truth be told, I've never said anything even close to that.
But then again, Mr. "Volt Hater Hater" hasn't been known to be truthful all the time.

Mr. "Volt Hater Hater" also said I "insulted his intelligence" by not acknowledging that company cars are registered in employee names for liability purposes.
Wow, this guy really takes a lot for granted.
Accusing others re things they don't say--happens often!.

Well, then again, perhaps there's a little insecurity going on there.

What was the first thing you said after the fresh start?

“Now watch one of the "Volt Hater Haters" get all upset about my latest post.”

You are a name caller.

Funny how Mr. Root always blames the other guy when he himself has a history of posting a ton of disgusting insults at every opportunity.

Oh well, what can we expect from a little man with developmental issues.

Every time he gives us a piece of his mind, it confirms that his thought must have had a long and lonely journey.

Have a nice day Root.

The only reason you are called names or insulted is because you do it. I agree with all of the other posters here. You are a trouble maker.

Root insists he's always blameless.
It's always the other guy who's at fault, right Mr. Root?
Yet he has the worst reputation for rude and crude name calling.

Maybe we should change his conduct from "Blameless" to " Brainless"??

Note that little man calling hisself "Root" insists "all the other posters here" agree with his rather immature and silly conduct.
"All the other posters" meaning all of Mr.Root and Mr. Luvmyvolt.
A vast majority to be sure.
Not!!!

And you, Mr. Root, are a little man with a foul mouth, a sick mind, and a serous developmental problem.
Those conditions have manifested themselves into a person who makes a fool of himself at every appearance here.
That humiliating result is your own fault, and you literally have no one else to blame but yourself.

Have a nice day little man.
