It’s nice hearing from you.
I had the Volt for just about a year. I enjoyed the ability to take longer trips, but that was about it. The quality of the Volt was really disappointing. It ended up being one of those 80% complete kinds of products. It had a lot of little quirks like not being able to turn off the radio. I’m serious. As implausible as it sounds, on these vehicles, you can’t turn off the radio. You can only mute it. Some of the safety features didn’t work consistently. I was driving down I-435 on a nice, warm, clear day with no one in front of me one day, and the car decided that I was about to have an imminent collision, so it engaged emergency braking. That caught my attention!!
Overall, it was an OK car, but I really missed my LEAF. I really wish I hadn’t sold it. So, when the new ones came out last year, I bought one. It’s fully loaded and is cobalt blue (a very cool color, but my first car that wasn’t silver, black, or white). The new LEAFs have quite a few new features compared with the previous ones.
All in all, I’m glad I went back. It feels strange that we all got our LEAFs in 2012, 7 years ago. Wow. Time flys.
