Does anyone get the magazine? Horrible reviews and grades on it. I hope they are wrong.
^^^ so true!...... As the Volt's disappear off the lots we'll have the 'top dog' PHEV. But almost every manufacturer is coming out with their models in PHEV very soon.
When Honda builds one in it's SUV's I'll be trading again.
Are you familiar with the Dutch Reach campaign to have drivers always open their car door with their inside hand ( right hand assuming the driver is on the left)? In this way they may spot a cyclist (bicycle or motorcycle) that may be coming up on the side before opening the car door, and thereby save a life.Also, I find the door handle difficult to reach from the driver's seat, and cupholder location seems awkward.
I appreciate having a vehicle I can drive on pure electric 80+% of the time but don't have to have separate vehicle when I want to go on a trip longer than the range of a pure electric.
That's not true: CR is totally independent and always has been - not even a HINT of scandal. They purchase every item they review - and they do it anonymously - so there's no contact with the manufacturers.^^^ so true!
No need for CR - they are bunch of lies anyway - paid by some competitor....
I haven't quite discovered what causes the motor to reeve up at times when I have it in HV mode. It seems to come and go regardless of speed. I
would love an audio BSM along with left turn camera (seems odd they didn't do it on both sides)./QUOTE]
The ICE (engine) isn't directly connected to the accelerator pedal and a power control unit decides if, when, and how much it should run depending on load, speed, temperature, battery state of charge and more. IOW, it's running because it needs to. :wink:
If there was a left turn camera view displayed on the center screen, then you would be looking in the opposite direction of (intended) travel.
No issues with ours so far. 5k miles and put in 17 gallons of gas. Haven't changed oil yet.Motorweek begs to differ from CR
