The troll, liar forgot to post this from the blog he quoted from.

That is different. My nearby lightning strike blew up my panel in the garage. The Volt was plugged in but the charger took the brunt by burning out a contact. The charger would still light but indicated a fault. The Volt was untouched by electrical damage and started right up.

Lightning strikes are never predictable in their damage. My appliances were 50/50 for surviving. One garage door opener made it and the other went brain dead. Hopefully all you need is a reset or something similar.

Hey troll, what do you think would happen to your cars computer if it got hit by lightning? Even a close hit.

Your an idiot.

Hence propaganda troll. Enough about that, once a man has been reduced to that level there's usually a very low recovery rate and we get stories about his vacations and vd.
But anyway, this brings up a story about lightning. Don't underestimate it. About 15 years ago it struck our telephone pole. The surge travelled through the cable and into the house. Ruined were two computers, modems, one answering machine and a TV, all the phones were dead. Really not relevant to the Volt, just an eye opener about the forces of mother nature.

Oh, I never underestimate lightning. I saw huge trees get cut down to embers during the monsoons. Also, I made a pretty hefty amount of overtime because of lightning strikes.

In fact, I was training a newbie when there was lightning about 15 miles away. I told him to get down, now. He told me, in effect, that I was a pu$$y.

The next morning, we heard that a neighboring worker was killed by the lightning that was still fairly far away from him. It traveled through our grounding system and knocked him off the pole.

Needless to say, the newbie listened to everything I told him from then on. It's not the fall. It's the sudden stop.

Some people think that bad Volt news is interesting. Funny thing though .... it's only the bad news that is interesting. He's just trying to be fair and balanced.

Problem is, fair and balanced for the Volt is 97% good news and 3% bad news. That is what JD Powers says, anyways.

Speaking of JD Powers:

These are the results when only real Volt owners can report their experiences with their cars.

Anybody can log on an unrestricted site and say they were electrocuted by a plastic shifter that has no path to the battery. Or their Volt's non-existent transmission has a clunk. Or their charge door fell off (sheeeesh). Or they have loud electrons during regen. Or they are from MI and they just hate the Volt like everybody else in MI does.

Anyway. Real Volt owners only. Reputable source. Honest results.

Oh yeah ... in my listing of all the fake Volt owners complaints ... I forgot the biggest lie of all. And it was the poo who made it up.

He actually met a Volt owner who's car couldn't beat a Dodge Journey's mpg. So the Volt got under 21 mpg.

This is a physical impossibility. This guy has been busted in so many lies that you can't trust anything that comes out of him.

I suspect that his brain is freezing over while he's staying in his pretend condo in pretend Puerto Vallarta.

Please spare us all the bs about your many businesses and cars and homes and your condo and blah blah blah blah. You can't even prove the stuff you post without a link. You expect us to believe the stuff that there are no links for?

OK, dolt. Let me explain this to you in the most simplistic (simplest) terms.

J.D. Powers didn't give the Volt the award.

The owners did.

J.D. Powers only mails out questionnaires to owners.

The owners mail them back with their opinions.

J.D. Powers only tally's the results.

J.D. Powers then announces the results.

I hope this helps you out.

Your take on the world is based on your muddied up knowledge. It is that way because of your hatred.

To hate the Volt is one thing, but to not know how J.D. Powers announces winners in all categories is due to your inability to get past the fact that the Volt won it's category 3 years in a row.

This stopped your brain from working. Had your hatred not stopped your brain from working, you could have simply searched the net to find out how J.D. Powers announces the winners.

OK .... just a thought. Next time, search before you insert foot.

We use 3 Silverados and a Chevy cube van in the rubber sex toy shop.
They give us good service and get used hard like my partner.I just traded my own personal 2012 VW Bug for a pink 2014 Fiat.
It has had 2 recalls since we got it in December, and still has one troublesome snag they can't seem to correct. The headlights blink like my wife’s pouting chest parts.Not happy with this new one (Fiat of the Year?) but will stick it out until 2016---then we'll see.

The transvestite traded her VW for a Lexus just last month, and licks it.
She won't have another VW because it was in the shop too often for petty snags.
Looked at a Caddy (Car of the Year) but didn't like it--said it felt clunky like her breasts.

And yes, we use a lot of lubricant. So what?
But our vehicles aren't "around town commuter cars", and we don't mind the cost of stretching our legs for flexibility.

PS..
It's not necessary to make me look like a dumbass because of a lightning strike story.
My wife got medicine for her HPV warts.
Volt is the best car ever!

Name calling and blowing hard

"Blowhard is an informal word describing someone who can't stop talking about themselves or their accomplishments, real or imagined."

His many businesses, cars, homes, condos, travels, accomplishments.

http://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/blowhard

No comeback for real facts pertaining to this forum. That being, Chevy Volt has won the J.D. Powers owner appreciation award 3 years in a row.

Remember, once you have made up a story like the one that claimed that the Volt only got 20 mpg ... or the Dodge Journey got 44 mpg ... you are busted. How are we to discern which is real and which is imaginary? Answer .... you can't. You must consider all of it a dream.

For those of us that don’t intend on using all the pre installed apps these systems will come with, the beauty about the 4G LTE ability in the car is that you can utilize the faster data points of 4G LTE in your vehicle with your existing phone plan. I consider that a win win and a positive for all persons interested in utilizing such tech.

This video is over two years old, but still quite impressive. However, I would not have any use for it, but I can see where families, in any car with this system would probably need it. Just to keep the kids from constantly asking "are we there yet?", let alone all of the other benefits. Movies seem to be quite a bit nicer on a 10 inch screen than on a phone.



I'm fine with my car the way it is. I remember when I first bought the car, one of the haters I ran into told me that I would look stupid in the morning if I forgot to plug in my car. He thought the Volt was electric only, with only 40 miles of range, period. After I informed him that the Volt actually had gas, I also informed him that the car will text me if I forgot to plug it in. That's about as advanced as I want to get. I had to stop the car from telling me when it was fully charged because it woke me up in the middle of the night.

So, what is the one piece of gear that I ended up loving the most? The key-less operation of the car. All I have to do is touch the door handle to unlock. I walk away and it locks itself. I never have to take the fob out of my pocket.

You absolutely get hooked on this. When I drive my van to the Home Depot, etc., I almost always walk up to the car and try to open the door without the key!!! It's weird.

I also like being able to roll the windows down on a real hot day from over 300 feet away. Quite a few cars have those abilities.
