The poll mentioned above where 92% of owners were positive on the Volt. Seems to me that human nature would propel that kind of response as I do not know anybody who would seriously want to admit to stupidity. The one person I know who owns one continues to defend it and her decision to purchase even though it is no longer a part of our conversation. This indicates to me that it has become a compulsion to perhaps bolster her sense of self worth or perhaps innate intelligence? Who knows - but she has become a bore.
