Thanks and thank you for e-mail response. We had it on sport, it was very peppy. The "heavy" is from how the suspension reacts to turns and bumps. I was getting thrown around pretty hard in the back seat.LTLFTcomposite wrote:Note that on the volt "eco" is the default and you have to select sport mode to get the default leaf behavior. That makes the volt seem heavier.
It is smaller than a Prius, but for us completely sufficient.drees wrote:For you Volt owners out there coming from a Prius - one of my reservations about the Volt is it's size - back seat is definitely an issue (really wish it had bench rear seats so could squeeze 3 in the back in a pinch) - but how does the trunk space compare to say the Gen-2 Prius and the LEAF? The Volt seems to be similar in trunk space to the Prius to me looking at pics...
Already got a dimple from doing that. Has to be the softest hood metal of any car I've owned.mwalsh wrote:Hood needs to be dropped to close it (and you can actually dent it if you try to push it closed from just latched)
I have a friend at work who is 5'9" and she mentioned on a test drive at a dealer the seats seemed too far forward and not adjustable. I took her for test drive last week and she ended up really liking all the adjustments. Aside from going forward backward (track) with level below your right knee there are two adjustments on the side as follows:adric22 wrote:I have both cars. Not sure what Weatherman was talking about on the seats being too low. They are adjustable and you can raise them up. My wife drives the Volt and has to raise the seat up and she's very short around 5'2" and has no trouble.
I only drive in Sport and L(ow-max regen). Low is not gearing but common nomenclature with some resemblance to "low" when slowing down. Low is only electronically turning on max regen. I've driven in Low for 33K miles.Pipcecil wrote:Sport which makes it more sporty than the leaf and a B or hard regen mode which is like the leaf's eco.
