The Chevy Volt has received more than its fair share of criticism, but as sales continue to climb, more success stories from Volt owners seem to be coming out. Retired pilot Jeffrey Kaffee, the first person to buy a Chevy Volt outside of auction, has reportedly used just 26 gallons of gasoline in two years of owning his Volt.

Chevy Volt Outselling Half Of Cars On The Market?

September 24th, 2012 | by Christopher DeMorro

If you listen to certain “news outlets,” you’d think the Chevy Volt was a flaming, steaming pile of sales crap that costs GM tens of thousands of dollars per vehicle sold.

Former Prius Owners Turning To Chevy Volt

September 12th, 2012 | by Christopher DeMorro

The Chevy Volt doesn’t get a lot of love from the right-wing, and Monday’s biased Reuters article claiming each Volt costs GM up to $49,000 certainly doesn’t help.

The assertion is ridiculous, the article sensationalist, and I am sick of hearing this kind of bullshit
