A Consumer Reports customer satisfaction survey puts the Chevrolet Volt at the top of its list, showing a whopping 93% of those polled saying they would “definitely” buy this car again if given the chance.
CR however released the results of their survey with this caveat: at the time when the survey was taken the Volt was only available in a few states, and had only been purchased by a few thousand customers. The car has only been in car dealer showrooms for one year, since December, 2010.
The Volt is a plug-in car, requiring electricity from an outside source to recharge its battery. Chevy says customers can expect to be able to drive about 40 miles on one charge, and for trips requiring longer drives there is a gasoline engine as a back-up.
