It appears to me that consolidating to one good used Volt would work very well for them. As for reliability, I really hope those words don't come back to haunt you, as Teslas aren't exactly Toyotas, if you get my drift. I'm really not in the mood tonight to clash swords at every turn, though, so let's just say that we disagree on this. I think I'll just deal with the Pakistani, Indian, and occasional Midwestern US spammers tonight.

Yeah the spammer is back.
Is there any chance the admin can change forum settings so someone with less than 10 posts or has been registered less than a week or 2 is unable to add a link to a post?

There is definitely more than one spammer. Yes, settings can be changed, but I can't do it and those who can...don't.

He already has an EV that is more functional than a Volt even in its degraded battery state.
He already has a back-up ICE that is likely a better car than the Volt.

The only possible reason I can think of to consider a swap into a Volt would be to downsize to one car in the family but buying discontinued models is a whole 'nother can of worms besides the very debatable choice of becoming dependent on Chevy reliability and service.

All this, of course, for someone willing to be connected with the GM name at all.

I think his decision is more than reasonable, and in a few years if he still cares about cars the money saved might put him into a Tesla.
I think Chevy bashing is the wrong tack. Its not like Nissans are bullet proof vehicles. Leaf batteries are shit. Just sold a Frontier that was also shit.

Nothing is "bullet proof" but the LEAF has held up pretty well so far, and the Acura has an overall very enviable record, particularly compared to Chevy.

I didn't mean to start an argument. I'm sticking with my Leaf/Acura combination for the foreseeable future. I think the PHEV is a stopgap technology. Unless one of my cars gives out, I'll wait until a decent small SUV EV is out and time tested. There are five or six in the works. The only one I know of that's available now is the Jaguar I-Pace, which would be a ridiculous choice for me. Although I'm happy with my Leaf, it does have a few first-year shortcomings which are well-documented here. I don't want to buy another first model year car, so I'm probably looking at 2021 at the earliest and maybe I'll just hang onto the cars I have.

My leaf hasn't held up well. It's already on its second battery.

If it had its original battery it would be some where between 6 bar and bricked.
