Chevy Volt named
most satisfying car

Where’s the love? For the Chevrolet Volt it’s right at home. The plug-in hybrid topped the Consumer Reports annual customer satisfaction survey for the second straight year, with 92 percent of owners saying they would definitely buy it again, down from 93 percent in 2011. The magazine says the showing was the result of a growing trend of enthusiasm for fuel-efficient cars, and in the case of the Volt, “the combination of sporty handling and strong engine performance also goes a long way in building loyalty and generating excitement among owners."

Sure....who wouldn´t want a car that is heavily subsidized by us tax payers, especially with the give away lease deals they have?

Ah the deception of small numbers and statistics. If 10 people in an I Love Electric Cars club buy the Volt instead of either of the other two pretty much unavailable competitors models and 9 of them Love it with one only adoring it the Volt has a 90% rating beating out the other 2 electric models handily. A commanding market segment lead if ever there was one.

Compare that to 11,000,000 completely unrelated folks from across a very diverse nation rating cars that have literally dozens of competing models and buyers with several generations of personal experience and you get a fragmenbtedf response.

What is the conclusion? Those 9 Chevy Volt Owners get to set the market for the 11,000,000 other car owners? Probably not. Chevy Volt buyers are not buying a car, they´re buying an ideology, a personal statement of their betterness. Of xourse they will not admit that they also have a Big SUV for trips farther than the corner market.

Write this headline after the total electric car market breaks 5 million vehicles and more then 20 models are available and most owners have no second vehicle for backup and then I´ll pay attention. Until then keep your deception of small numbers spiel to yourselves.

Because anyone steeped enough in liberal horse**** to buy a Volt would of course be too steeped in liberal horse**** to admit what a mistake they had made.

For years Consumer Reports has become a politically-driven magazine, especially with respect to cars. I used to love to read their stuff, but starting about 15 years ago I noticed that they were looking at cars as if they were just alternatives to mass transit. Additionally, this is just another example of the deceitful way a survey can be manipulated by the Administration, who by the way, are "stakeholders" in seeing everything GM look good, most especially their flagship green car. It may or may not be a decent car, but I no longer trust Consumer Reports for verification of what´s really happening out there. Oh, the market isn´t buying many of them either; maybe that says something. Also wonder what the political makeup is of Volt owners.

I thought government, especially the Pentagon, bought most of the Volts. That would seem to skew the results.

Those who buy the rare or unusual do so for a reason. The buyers of more generic models will have other motives.

The prior differences in the buyers tends to make such surveys unhelpful.

Some men will by a $500 dress shirt, some a $50 shirt. Others will spend only $20. Those shirts have difference, but there are greater differences in the purchasers than in the shirts.

Are these the same people who had their houses burn down after they parked the Volt in their garage and plugged it in?

92 percent of owners saying they would definitely buy it again. The other 8% would like GM to pay for a new garage to replace the one that burned down.

Agree with above posters - if Consumer reports recommends it, I avoid it. I would love to know how much buyers of this lemon pay in electricity costs.

#6 nails it. There are so few Volt owners compared to other types that you really can´t compare.

When I worked at K-mart many moons ago, the Millinary department frequently won the award for most increase sales over the same time last year or month or week. But when its the smallest department with sales of 50 or 60 bux, even a $10 increase, which is almost nothing, gave them a big percentage jump.

#9, you are completely right.

I´ll add that most car magazines also have an anti-US car bias. I can give dozens of proof points. In almost every comparison test I can recall, the US car will typically lose, even if just by a few points. Statistically impossible. But there it is. I used to subscribe and read at least 7 auto magazines cover to cover, now I rarely pick them up. I know more than the average guy and I can go drive something myself and figure out if I like it.

You don´t read what a failure the Leaf is, you have to find that out from other sources. There are no articles speculating what sales of these cars will be like with no subsidy. You can bring out a totally new Corvette or Viper, and sure, you´ll get a little press. Bring out a new Acura NSX and the press will never stop.

Sad, we used to have such great magazines.

Those two dozen owners are pleased and loyal. But that´s the way a liberal is. They would put themselves thru any misery and expense rather than admit that government liberal policies were a boondoggle and wasteful. Just look at every other liberal policy and the failures they represent.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
