I will buy a Volt as soon as
I will buy a Volt as soon as I can. If GM wants to reemerge as a world leader in auto productivity, they should recognize the incredible leverage this one car would give them. Years ago I was denied a job by GM, after scoring a 126 on their entrance exam, ( average score was around 80's something) because, quote... "You're too smart for the job you applied for". They were right! However, I've watched in a semi detached way as they have continued to demonstrate their inability to produce top people that can envision the FUTURE OF AUTOMOBILES and adapt their company to stay ahead of the curve. I'm amazed that they haven't taken the initiative long before now to position themselves for the greatest amount of market share of the WORLD by producing the VOLT. If they don't receive a bailout, maybe they will tell the world market they've been playing in, to "take a hike", start mass producing this car, then sit back and watch the rest of the worlds automakers try to play "catch up", WHILE THEY START LOOKING FOR THE NEXT CURVE!

Yes!!! When and where can I
Yes!!! When and where can I Pay for my New Volt. Apple Pie and The Volt will give us our USA back.
GM - Make this car. If you
GM - Make this car. If you do not make it, I will buy a competitor electric car. I own American cars but I do not want to buy any more oil. Oil prices go down, gas prices still stay up. I am mad as hell and do not want to take their excuses anymore. OPEC cuts production. I'll cut something - my consumption - to Zero.
Hopefully GM will come to
Hopefully GM will come to their senses and charge a fair price for the car so they will end up selling thousands of them. I plan to wait for it to hit the market before my next vehicle purchase.
Wake up guys, I change cell
Wake up guys, I change cell phone every 2 years in the last eight years because the lithium ion battery die on me. Apparently in a very near future couple auto makers already try to sell you a plug-in car that you need to lease the Lithium Ion battery from them. Why? Because they know the battery will not last.
Prius's MH battery has been tested In the real world; last ten years TAXI DRIVERs had been getting over 300,000 klicks with that battery. Other auto makers has nothing close to Prius to sell you! So they try to sell you a concept "a dream car" that nobody could buy in the show room. Introduction of the Volt is just a smoke screen that try to make you think GM is way ahead of Toyota! What do you think?
With a price tag more than $40,000, Volt will save GM!? You can buy couple small Japenese cars with that money today and you don't need to lease a battery. Oh buy the way, who has the best selling sug compact? Toyota, Honda, Nissan or Mazda?
