Chevy Volt

We bought a 2013 Chevy Volt off a CarMax lot in October of 2016. The car had come off a three-year lease by the original lessee who had driven it for nearly 36,000 miles. The car had 10.3 kWh of usable battery capacity and a 9.3 gallon tank for premium gasoline. We put nearly 6,000 miles on the car in the first year of ownership. We sold it in March of 2018 when we downsized to a one-car family. The Volt was the most sophisticated and high-end car we had ever owned. Our only complaint about the low-slung car was entry and exit. I felt that the car had been designed for the sport-car set and I was long past that stage. We drove it as an electric car and most of the miles we put on it were on electricity. For us, the Volt was an intermediary step between the short-range Nissan Leaf (24 kWh) and the long-range Chevy Bolt (60 kWh) we needed to get to our favorite mountain trailheads.
