The idiocy in this blog is mind-boggling. You'd think that the Chevy Volt was something concocted by GM to "obey the command of the Lord and Master Obama", based on the nonsense I read below here. The Volt started development in 2006 and was featured as a concept car in 2007. Ya think Obama had anything to do with that? It was a GM initiative!! Does anyone remember that gas prices skyrocketed in 2007and 2008, with projections of over $5 per gallon, before collapsing with the economy, or are your memories that short? And now we are looking at gas coming back to $4 per gallon in the middle of winter! (Wait'll driving season gets here!)

Rush Limbaugh refers to you types as "low information voters" You prove his incite is appropriate.

You do not know that GM illegally stole money from millions of retirees and retirement savers. The fact that they bought off a completely corrupt administration in return for campaign cash has nothing to do with the fact that GM is a lawbreaker and exists only through subversion of the US constitution and the liberty and rule of law that so many patriots fought and died to preserve.

There are only two reasons to buy a GM product Here they are:

1) You are traitor to the country

or

2) You are hopelessly ignorant.

If the cost of an overnight charge keeps going up and no increase in the miles it will go on the charge we will see pre Rose Parade races like the Isetta races in the 50's. Also won't the miles go down on the heavier Caddie? The one owner i know would love to sell it but the resale value is almost 0.

The owner you know must be one of the 5% that do not want another one, because according to Consumer Reports, 95% of the owners they surveyed would buy another one.

Oh yeah, just saw this on the resale value too...

"Kelley Blue Book (KBB) is a one-stop shop for auto research and consumers interested in buying a vehicle that best retains its new car value need to look no further than the 2013 Best Resale Value Awards. KBB evaluates vehicles in a variety of categories and for the second year in a row, the Chevrolet Volt earned top honors in the Electric Vehicle segment."

Sounds like your friend might be just a figment of your imagination...

Wow, there is someone here that actually does understand the way the world works. I applaud you for taking the initiative to research the facts and not be blindly led around like so many others in the blogosphere...

Democrats took over both houses in 2006, and things definitely got worse after that.

That was around the time GM should have gone bankrupt, if memory serves, for being stupid in it's relation to the union. Accumulating legacy costs far beyond what they can ever pay out.

Now, owing their continued existence to a government bailout, they have to satisfy the king.

You knucklehead.
Your idiocy is mind-boggling.
Your intellect is worthless.

If GM had gone bankrupt, a million people would have been out of work and the government would have had to bail people out with unemployment and social services. So saving GM made economic sense. Plus the infrastructure to design and build cars on a world-competitive scale would have been lost. Perhaps you'd prefer everyone sit at home in their underwear while Japan and China control all manufacturing. No wait, you'd rather Americans just work for $8/hour, and supplement their wages with night jobs at Wal Mart.

Let me guess. You're from the anti-labor South?

After a year that can only be described as “stupid,” the Chevy Volt is gearing up to make 2013 even stupider still.

I know, I know.

You find it hard to believe that a mostly-owned subsidiary of the United States government and the Obama administration- like GM is- could get any stupider than say Fannie Mae, or Federal Reserve Bank.

Yes, that’s tough competition, but in the “idiocy” category GM seems to be the ruling champion.  

Not only have they lost substantial amounts of taxpayer dollars, they have managed to do it while generating record profits...
