Green and stylish commuter PHEV car

Edmunds.com logo Edmunds.com 6/17/2017 Bertman815

I have owned my Volt (LT trim with leather) for 2 months now and love it. The styling is modern and sleek. You can't be any quieter. Acceleration is good, way better than competition (Prius Prime). Like the regen braking with paddle option. Handling is good, sticks to the ground, very little body roll. I have no range anxiety as I have gas backup that can go another 350 miles. Love having the HOV lane sticker to zoom past traffic. The CA rebates and federal tax credits adding to almost $10K made this a no-brainer. My main complaints are: 1) Low to ground: sometimes I scrape bottom of car if going off a curb ramp or over speed bump too fast, 2) Rear visibility not so good with small rear window and big rear corner pillars, 3) smaller rear seat, OK for small adults and kids, 4) Trunk storage is a little small. Overall, despite the small complaints, I love the car and feel I made the right decision given my daily commute (35 miles each way) compared to other plug-in electric cars like Prius Prime and Nissan Leaf.Update: Driven the car 13k miles and everything still going great saving gas. Had first oil change at 10k. Only thing is Android Auto sometimes refuses to connect when plugging in my smartphone to the USB and connecting Bluetooth.
