Only an idiot buys a VOLT for economical reasons. Just think, you pay a zillion dollars for the car to save a nickel on gas. Doesn't make sense.
There are other reasons to buy one: be the first kid on the block to have one; money is of no concern to you; . . . . but to save money, NO.
Aahh. But your first response was they are pretty. Charger is one of the prettiest cars on the road this year.
Chrysler has laid down on the job making the car more efficient. I am disappointed in the published mpg.
Along with the high cost of an auto, GM for the past several years has not turned out pretty cars.
Buying a car is just like picking a girl friend, if she is pretty that's the one you want. A car is the same way, if it is pretty that's the one you want.
All the engineering properties are checked out last.
When I was at GM dealers were not supposed "to fix" trannies....they were instructed to just get a CERTI and let the prison boys tear it down.
Ford dealer..."fixed them"
GM approach was better, trannies are too complicated for the occasional fix
<<Those guys were pretty nice but their cars cost way too much for what you get.>>
Saturns were always overpriced. I attribute part of that to the social experiment that Roger Smith did with Saturn, the so called 'partnership' with the UAW. What a flop, as far as I was concerned, they wouldn't be my partner until they contributed half of the capital investment.
What was beneficial, in my estimation, was the marketing philosophy...consistent pricing, customer service.
One of the internal rules for Saturn was that they had to fund their own new models, because of the high cost of production they didn't do very well at that, so their product line was always dated.
I'll agree with that. I've only been treated great at Saturn dealers. Even the Hyundai dealer was not as nice as Saturn reps were. In fact, the first night I stopped in, I looked at the car for about 5 minutes and since no one even came over to say hi I said, 'Screw THIS!' and wen to look at a Buick.

Maybe you missed this in my post:
<<I'm not even saying you were one of them, how would I know that? >>
This is the point I was making in your words:
<<I am sure there are many dealers who have operated below the boundaries of decency, legality, and ethics.>>
Don't take it personally.
