I was really sad the day General Motors took my Chevy Volt away. But it wasn’t mine to keep. GM had appointed me to a special Consumer Advisory Board, which amounted to being one of fifteen “test pilots” across America who got to drive and critique a Volt for three months.
When I first drove the Volt, having been a proud Prius driver for the past five years, I was initially put off by its relative heaviness, which seemed to cause an unnecessary waste of power just to propel the car. On the other hand, I was really impressed with the control panel, the array of electronics, the amazing stereo sound, and the full-time help and assistance through the On-Star System. I also appreciated the Volt’s steering radius. It was the tightest and best I’ve experienced in any car, foreign or domestic.
