2017 Chevrolet Volt Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Volt
My Chevy volt: small but mighty.
Performance: this is a low-drama car. Since the car is hybrid, I can go a really long period of time before I need to get gas, if I have charged up the battery. Mileage: 57 miles on battery + 335 miles on gasoline. Features: get the seat warmers. . . ! Challenges: my car is almost 2 years old. I really have no big complaints but I have noticed a few small things. As a hybrid car, there are times when I'll get error messages that make no sense (or I cannot find the answers in the manual). I have had good relationships with the local dealer and just take it in. Most of what I need is still under warranty. Example: lately, when I depress the brake pedal and press the "on" button, the car will lock-up for about 10 seconds before it will actually allow me to put it into reverse. Just started happening and does not happen every day. If you are a tall person, you may want to look at a different car. However, I have a colleague who is 6'2 and loves his volt. Wish it had proper trunk space. I guess you would call my car a "hatchback". If I could change that design, I absolutely would.
Love My Volt but Wheel Rims are a Problem
I have a iridescent white 2017 Volt that I just love!❤️Everything about the car is great and I especially like the smoothness,power and economy of electricity! I ordered it from the factory and had the light ash/dark ash interior in leather put in and the Bose sound system. In summer the range is 105 km on a warm day and winter about 70 km. My only complaint with the car is the wheel rims! They stick out about a 1/4 from the low rolling resistance tires and come in contact with a curb so easily when you are parking! You are not even aware that you are scraping the rim until it is done! I have just finished having one wheel repaired by having it machined, buffed, and repainted and now I see that there is another area that that has been damaged again! Grrrrr! think that Chevrolet should have designed the wheel so that the rim is not sticking out so far! Other than that, it is a beautiful car and I would never go back to a totally gasoline vehicle.
Drives well but with the expense I am not sure if the car is overall worth the premium. Space issue can be a concern if you expect to have back seat passengers.
Has had some issues which had to be taken in for service: windows not operating, door open chime did not cease after closing doors, software update indicated by check engine light (twice). The car has some space issues for passengers in the back seat, as I am tall and need to push the seat back pretty far. Gas mileage is good though not many charging stations in the area which I have recently moved.
Volt: amazing money saver!
Problems: getting the software update for android as is defaulted for apple. I drive about 40+ miles daily and as long as you charge your car daily you never have to worry about paying for gas. Recently discovered the "l" mode (low gear) which passively breaks your car when releasing the gas pedal. This is great as it passively charges your battery and do not have to use your break half of the time!
It's a way to learn how to love electric cars, but without the range anxiety that comes from limited battery usage.
I'm on my car brand new and loved it from the instant that I got it. Because it's an electric car with a gas backup generator it allows me to get more value out of my solar panels on my house and virtually use no gas to get around town. It is small and there's some minor inconveniences, such as the price. But in time this wallpaper back on itself if the car last. I do love the car.
The best car you will ever drive is the Chevy volt.
I love my 2017 volt. The gas is about $25. 00 a week. My 2017 volt has 78000 miles in 2 years. The performance is smooth and very reliability. I am in stop and go traffic and my drive is 137 miles and to this day all I have done is a oil change. The only thing that I wish was better is the back seat. The back seat in very small and uncomfortable. There is no leg room.
It's a hybrid - saves a lot of gas $.
No problems, great performance, comfortable heated option seats, like OnStar feature, planning my route with info on how far to proceed ahead, when to get ready to make a turn, beeping when time to turn arrives. Generous storage in hatchback. Ability to put back seats down flat allows transport of large items,
I rarely have to fill it up with gas. It is economical and better for the environment than a gas engine car.
So quiet and efficient! I love that you can drive in busy traffic yet still feel relaxed without the background engine noise. I charge the car every night and have enough charge in the battery for all the running around town that I do in the daytime. I would definitely recommend a Volt to anyone.
A great way to save on gas.
Vehicle is just a great way to save on gas. I can drive 53 miles each day gas free! If your just commuting a short distance each day you really never have to put gas in the car. It has been extremely reliable if it is charged and driven on a consistent basis. It is comfortable for long trips.
Almost all motels have 110v plugins so they'll "fill me up" for free.
No problems at all! Great gas mileage, drives nicely; I wouldn't change a thing about the car. The cell phone app for preconditioning the car works great, too! The battery gets about 60--70 mpg, figuring the kw hours of electricity compared to gas. Running the engine gets about 42 to 55 mpg.
