Too Funny.
The Fed continues to provide financial stimulus by buying $85 billion a month in government and mortgage bonds and other long-term low rates...

and with the national debt at $16.7 trillion...

That it can't afford to keep the" bail outs" open.

Too Funny.

I look forward to someone stepping up and getting the number one position from the Volt. Sooner or later one of these other cars can do it.

I hope so. Tesla is an awesome American company and I hope they sell millions of cars. It would be great for this technology to be spread over many cars. Volt needs to share its success with Tesla. Hopefully Tesla will be able to follow GMís footsteps and outsell everyone in the market one year. Could this be the year? Itís really exciting!

It's so exciting to see these cars coming out. I hope for two things. One that someone will be able to sell as many cars as GM has Volts and fuel cells really take off.

Here is something that has nothing to do with the subject at hand.

Kind of like everything the haters put out.



I notice that you aren't even responding to the haters here. Keep it up. As I stated, that is their worst fear.

Anyway ... this is pretty funny.

Speaking of which. In Jay Leno's Garage, while reviewing the Cadillac ELR, it is mentioned that the same electric range can be achieved in Sport Mode as in Normal Mode if you drive the car normally.

The difference would be when you need the extra pep to go around (or race a Prius), it is already on. I'm going to try it for a couple of days and I will report.

That is mentioned at 11 minutes in the video. And by the way, Root, Jay Leno mentioned the fact that the Leaf batteries are subject to degradation because they are not liquid cooled. That begins at 13:22.

Something funny happened to me today.

Saw one of those sport model Prius (Prii?).

The owner had put on some nice sounding pipes. He was mashing the pedal so the car would go to gas so it would sound nice.

He was testing me at the lights.

I put it in sport mode and dusted him.

He turned off at the next light.

Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk.

Why would someone try to race in a prius?

Same can be said for the Volt. I would never race a 6 banger. I ain't that crazy.

The reason why people state that the Volt feels fast is because you have to give it much less pedal to get the same torque when taking off from a light.

You have to learn to use less pedal. But when you mash it, it's no speed burner because of the limiters. It's pretty quick though. But it cruise nice at 75.

You may remember this video. A Volt going 0-60 in 5.5 seconds. This guy disconnected most of the limiters. Hope he never has to use his warranty. His 5.5 second run is at 4:20.

HOW THE DOLT GOT HIS NAME.

In December, 2011, Lauren Fix had the gall to go on Fox News (aka Faux) and give her review of the Chevy Volt. She lied through her teeth, just like most of those Faux "reporters" do.

She stated that she had the car for 1 week. She said that her electric bill went up $100 because of the Volt. IN ONE WEEK!!

She was getting called out on this huge lie by so many people, on so many forums that she had to turn off the comments on most of her videos.

Here is her video. She tells this whopper at 4:10.

The video is entitled "Chevy Volt Sales or Dolt".



This is a video I put up as a response, proving that this woman could never have run up a $100 charging bill.

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

You would have to be a fool to believe her after seeing my video.

I don't know all the specs on that car. I do know it only gets about 11 miles in electric.

Even then, it is not a true series hybrid, like the Volt. It is a plug in parallel hybrid. That is why the car will still revert to gas when you floor it, in spite of the fact that there is still a charge on the battery.

Being a series hybrid, you can floor the Volt and go 100 mph until the battery is depleted.
