And, by the way, hater, aka Poo slinger, 95% of the Chevy Volt is just a normal car.

I've never heard of any car, regardless of the fact that it is a Canadian electric car or a Bugatti Veyron, they've all had problems.

You forget the fact, that until the Tesla S came along, the Volt was the most loved car by owners for 3 years running.

You're just a troller. But, I hope you never stop because I love frying eggs and covering liars faces in them.

Software going clunk!!! A Dodge Journey getting better than 43 mpg!!! You don't live in Windsor!!! You own a $2.8 million business!!!

That last one made me stop to laugh for about 2 minutes.

I like you poo. You haters are getting harder and harder to find. All of my folders with Volt information was getting dusty until I found you.

"2013 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)
Review
I decided to give the 2013 Volt a try after my '10 Prius hit 190K. My car is loaded with almost every option and I paid 34K before tax credit. I drive 36 miles r/t to work and usually make it on electric. Pros: Tight, drives like a vault, quiet, smooth. Technology Int and ext styling. Fantastic economy. Cons: Price even after $9000 dealer discount Craftmanship--lots of problems Poor ergonomics The center stack has buttons scattered about, seat heater turns on by itself, electric charger door fell off, 110v charger stopped working, trim pieces fell off, ipod stopped working, poor craftsmanship.

Craftmanship Fix the dash and organize the buttons scattered about!!! Dealer service and support--Not good in Portland, Oregon--dealer didn't care at all about problems On Star experience very poor with foreign operators and difficulty buying minutes for phone--I finally gave up. Competing with Japan need more work. I would not buy this car again because of the problems I have experienced

So you found another hater that is bashing the Volt. I can go on "Prius Chat" and find about 20 of these with 10 pages. You think this is new?

Fact, anybody that is trying to find out how great the Corvette is should not go on a Porsche site and read Porsche owners reviews of the Corvette.

Wow.

"2013 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)
Review
My Wife and I bought 2 of these Volts in 2012. Within 7 months my Volt had a major Regen bearing failure. The dealer tried to replace it twice. They ended up giving me a new car (A buyback). Within 1000 miles of owning the new 2013 Volt, I had no heat, that took 2 trips to the dealer to fix, and then the same Regen bearing failure that took weeks to get repaired! Now just in the past 3 weeks my Wifes Volt Died. It had to be towed in 2 times. The dealer said it was a 12 Battery issue. They replaced it and it failed again! These cars have too many issues that the dealer or GM have knowledge enough to fix properly. Buyer Beware...buy at your own risk! "
I notice that you have learned your lesson and you eliminated the posters id. Took a while. This just makes you a better liar.

You're learning. Unfortunately for you, I am here to point out these facts about you.

I decided to give the 2013 Volt a try after my '10 Prius hit 90K and the engine caught of fire. My car is loaded with almost every option and I paid 34K before tax credit.

The center stack has buttons in all the right places, seat heater turns on by itself when it's cold option, electric charger door is strong, 110v charger works every time, trim pieces in excellent condition, ipod works perfectly, excellent craftsmanship.

I sleep quite well at night, every night, thank you.
But I do occasionally chuckle at your childish tantrums before nodding off.
And we live in a rural area 20 clicks called "The Town Of Lakeshore" outside of Windsor and on a 2 acre lakefront property. Right now there are a few kids out skating on a rink just off the beach which we built for the neighbourhood. Lots of fun.
Next week we'll be in our condo in Puerto Vallarta, and will continue to enjoy laughing at your silly temper tantrums until April.

The SF Giants, 45 minutes from my house.
The Oakland A's, 50 minutes from my house.

But next week we'll have sun, sand, palm trees, and sailing.

Yes, I know, in Windsor, you can hire the corner crack head to come and sweep out your driveway. That's not news.

Believe it or not, Silicon Valley has crack heads also. But they drive Porsche's. And .....

By the way poo. The next time you are trolling, whether you check out your sources or not, and you find something about the Volt "clunking" when gears are changed ......

Nothing happens when you shift from D to R or L or P, etc. Nothing. Unlike a car with a transmission, the Volt is fly by wire.

When the mouse - aka shifter - points to R from D, nothing happens. A car with a transmission has a surge in the direction it is placed in. The newer the car, the less it is detectable. But it is detectable.

The Volt is software. There is no surge. It is the computer waiting for you to take your foot off the brake so it can send the electric motor a signal to do what the mouse said to do. It spooks out people the first time they drive the Volt. They are waiting for that noticeable surge. If you lock the doors before you shift from P to D or R, you won't hear the slightest noise or feel the slightest surge.

Amazing .... eh?

If you knew this ahead of time, you wouldn't have been sucked into the vortex of a Tesla owner who hates the Volt.

Funny thing is, the Tesla has no transmission either. I think that owner thinks like you do. The Volt and the Prius are the same types of car.

The Prius, unlike the Volt has a transmission. I spent so much time trying to get you to learn about the car you hate. If you had taken my advice, you wouldn't look so stupid right now.

OK .... if you need anymore information about the amazing Volt, go and troll a hater site and post. You don't even need to provide the posters name. I don't really need that.

You're easy.

Here is a hater that actually got on KBB Volt owner's reviews. That is one of their favorite places to trash.

So, poo, if you want to find some more negative stuff .... good place to find some. Just skip the over the 95% of the posts that say the Volt is the best car they've ever owned. Just pretend those aren't there. Not hard for you to do.

Some guy, John from MI.

""I purchased car thinking I could make a difference, boy was I wrong.25 miles on a full charge . That is when it's not to cold or to hot. People talk about the fuel savings but never talk about the cost of the electric. This. Car is and was my worse investment. I was even told by some GM friends that they post great reviews on here to help sales. This it's wrong.don't make the same mistake I did."

Did you get that? 25 miles on a full charge.

Wrong!!! The Volt battery warranty is a % warranty. If your charge goes under 75% of original charge within the warranty time, your battery will be replaced.

Then he actually says that he has GM friends that sway they get on the sites to post great reviews to help sales. What are the odds of this guy having GM friends? I must admit, this guy is a less skillful liar than our resident hater. But not by much.

This is the type of poo that poo slinger looks up. He doesn't know that it is easy to spot a hater because of their lack of knowledge. Like the warranty on the battery.

He sees these types of posts and his little hear goes pitter patter and it's over. His fingers type before his head say "whoa .... slow down .... iluvmyVolt is going to eat you alive!!!"

Also, 8 out of 28 people believed him. So there are at least 8 people out there that are extremely gullible, or they hate the Volt also. I believe it's the latter.

Here's another. Same name. John. Go figure.

"This car is the ultimate failure. Cost of charging 220 volt (extra charge ) is more than the cost of fuel. Cant sell mine due to the fact nobody wants this piece of garbage. Car is now 3 years old and its not even worth 20,000. What a dummy i was. I guess this explains why gm is leasing at 199 with a 42,000 residual. Nobody wants it"

Did you get that? It costs more to charge than gas. 9 out of 33 believed him.

Then you have the nest of MI owners that logged in. Amy, Vick, Bob, Solar, Kimberly, and John.

80% of the negatives were from MI. The other haters were also very thin in knowledge.

6 owners from MI that hate the Volt. All the owners from MI hated the Volt. What are the odds that 100% of all MI Volt owners hate their cars? A whole nest of them .... from the same state!!!

Solar is a hater that I personally have had dealings with on a GM site. I called him out on another site for getting on KBB and claiming he was an owner.

Funny, eh? And the poor poo falls for this crap. He just can't stop his fingers.

Yea whatever..

Look, I’ve given you opportunity after opportunity to give birth to some type, any type of rebuttal against the Volt (because you try so hard to make it look bad and stifle people that like it). You still can’t come up with anything but propaganda. When challenged your tail goes between its legs and you try to come back with bullshit. Another thing, I’m not for nor do I approve of your alternative lifestyle. Call me homophobic, it really doesn’t matter. I can assure you even Andy Griffith would not approve. Anyway, if you decide to stop the propaganda flag from your groin and present an actual argument, I will discuss it with you. In the mean time Volt is the top dog and you can’t do anything about it.
