I want to get the 2016 Volt 2nd Gen as soon as it is available.
The Volt is my first American car, the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned and it has provided me the most fun driving since I was a kid.
On the Consumer Reports web site, 85% of Volt owners who were surveyed said that they would buy the Volt again- among the highest of any make/model. So I am not alone.

So it'll probably be another three years at the minimum before I trade my car in. If all goes according to plan for GM the Chevy Bolt will be out by then and I would seriously consider going with the Bolt instead. I'll have to see what the Bolt is actually like - hopefully one of the area Chevy dealers will have a demonstrator so I could see one up close and take it on a test drive. I'd also have to decide if I am comfortable with the 200 mile max range. But if not the Bolt I will probably get another Volt - I really like how the second gen model looks, especially the blue one that they had at this year's North American International Auto Show.

Two, in the 3 years since I purchased my car the electric vehicles have become much better looking. My Volt looks like a box next to other EV cars. I have OnStar for the first three years, but there is no map, simply turn left in 3 miles. The screen is small in comparison to others as well.
Finally, after almost 3 years of a $774 payment on my $38,000 car I still owe $27,000. The car is Kelly Blue Booked at around $17,000. It has depreciated much more than it should. I assume this is because there are now better cars that are cheaper as well.
I still like being a Chevy Volt owner, but I no longer LOVE it.

The dust is settling on the pricing and competition and the new Volt looks promising (no pricing has been announced yet). I will probably lease again just to be sure. But I will stick with the Volt- I need a car that can go anywhere on occasion (without having to stop and charge for hours) and not even the fanciest Tesla can promise me that.
Sorry to hear that some folks have had problems. Mine has been as reliable as the sun rising.
