More Like the Chevy Dolt

19 Mar

The Detroit News has an interesting piece on Consumer Reports initial take on the Chevy Volt.

CR is not impressed. My brother-in-law was though when he was invited for a test drive at GM’s proving grounds. He mentioned the same things (torque and handling) that CR did as being positives. One afternoon on the test track doesn’t give you a true picture of what life with the vehicle will be like. My brother-in-law is a pretty sharp car guy. I have a feeling that if he had to live with the car day-to-day, he would come to the same conclusions Consumer Reports appears headed towards.

As time goes by, it appears that the Volt is all show and no go. A lot like the current Administration who made such a big deal about the thing.
