LOL, you're right. The Volt is a maintenance time bomb, and a sales failure. When it comes time for major repairs to that POS, your local GM dealer will bend you over the service managers desk and stick it to you.

LOL, you're right. The Volt is a maintenance free car, and a sales winner. When it comes time for major repairs to that great car, your local GM dealer will give you roses and the service manager's desk will congratulate you for not buying a Prius.

Welcome back, voice of reality. I wonder how long it will take to get you deleted this time?

As usual, you have nothing to say.

And by the way, dolt, you ain't fooling anybody.

Went by a gas station today.$4.10 a gallon now.

I can drive 151 for $4.10 at my charging costs. I bet you wish you could drive 151 miles for $4.10, dolt.

Dolt is voting 13 times again. What happened, dolt? You took a long, long break.

Did I post too many things that proved you a liar?

I think so.

That's ok .... I wish you would try posting some more "facts". I like it when you do.

OK ... enjoy the gas stations.

Wow, dolt has lost it. He is talking to his other 4 personalities. Kind of funny, though. I suspect that he can't sleep too well at night.

What with working at burger king and barely making enough to pay bills, let alone making enough to buy a Prius.

You know that you are in need of help when you, not only answer your other personalities, but you also judge them.
Dolt, are you locked up in a facility that allows you computer time?

I like this particular one. OK .... answer soon.

OK ... enough laughter. Back to facts:

This is interesting. This Volt owner has driven 58,000 electric miles. 73,600 total. What is interesting to me is the graph. Looking closely at it, I notice that the percentage of E miles to gas miles is about the same at the end as it was in the beginning. There seems to be a slight degradation.

There was a study done on one of the first Volts sold. The study was done by the government to ensure that the warranties given out by all manufacturers, not just GM, were good warranties. After 15,000 miles, the battery degraded by just under 2%, or about 0.84 miles.

Assuming that the degradation rate will rise slightly, they still state that the Volt's battery degradation is more than within the limits of the warranty. About 12% vs the 23% warranty.

GM gives the only warranty that specifies a percentage of degradation. No more than 23% after 8 years or 100,000 miles.

The haters on this site predicted that this guy would be needing to buy a new battery already. Instead, he is still at well over 40 mile ranges at full charge.

At least one of those posts--9289--was mine
It was a completely innocuous comment, which simply stated as follows...

"I think it might be a good idea to accept Root's offer in good faith, where he suggests it's time to knock off the silliness that's taken over here.
So I will respect Root's suggestion--as long as there's no more nonsense.
So please.....
No more insults about Canada.
No more insults about Canadians.
No more vulgar posts about Canadian women and men.
No more faked homophobic insults claiming yours truly is gay.
No more petty name calling--ie., liar, idiot, hater, etc., and this includes all the other nasty inferences which accompany those names.
No more phoney and faked IP Spoofing, ie., copying usernames and locations.
No more targeting Toronto as a "toilet for bums", or taking cheap shots at Toronto's mayor.
No more inferences that Canadians "eat dog".
No more inferences about people's home being in a "ghetto suburb of Detroit".
No more gross insults about "Canadian Horse Police" being gay.
Unquote.
And many other really gross and offensive posts.
Hope this message gets out to everybody involved."
So, I notice that you are a hypocrite, as usual. You call out root, but you let your lackey's do your dirty work.

Don't get me wrong, I love playing with the dolt's 15 personalities. He's just a burger flipper that wishes he could afford a Prius. I'm just calling you out for being the hypocrite that you are.

OK ... enjoying the snow in Mexico?

So, what pisses the dolt off so much.

Let's review.

Toyota is subsidized by the Japanese government. Has been since WWII.

Toyota is subsidized by American tax payers.

Prius was 100% subsidized in the early years. Still is subsidized.

Toyota has led all auto manufacturers in recalls for 8 years straight. Led in other years before that.

Prius is one of the most recalled cars in history.

Toyota actually sold fewer Prius in the first 4 years than Volts have been sold.

But most of all, the number one thing that pisses off the dolt is ......

He can't even afford a Prius.,

Let's get something straight.
I agreed to Root's proposal in good faith, and haven't posted since then.
I fully intend to keep that agreement.
None of the posts you object to are from me. None! Nada! Nil!
Furthermore, I have absolutely no control over what others are posting here.
So please point your accusations elsewhere.
Thanks.
