Here at Karl Chevrolet, we've been selling and servicing Chevy cars since 1927. But we've never seen a phenomenon like the Chevy Volt has on its owners. It is quite simple: Chevy Volt owners LOVE their car ... in more ways than one. It seems that every Chevy Volt owner has their own reasons, but a majority of those reasons are centered on saving money and using much less gas.
Today, one of our customers, Sandi Gladstone, from Stamford, CT sent us the following Top 10 list and we thought we'd share it:
My top 10 reasons for buying a Chevrolet Volt
I have purchased many new cars in my lifetime, but not one can come close to the exhilaration I felt when I first drove my Volt.

As gas prices keep rising, I feel better and better as I drive my Volt.
The Chevrolet Volt is a ground-breaking new vehicle. The Volt is the world's first Extended Range Electric Vehicle. The Volt has won a record number of awards and been critically acclaimed in the automotive press. But how does it perform in the real world?
All you had to do was watch the Super Bowl to realize there are lots of new car models hitting the market. It seems that auto manufacturers have a never ending stream of 'new models' offering styling and features for just about every consumer want and need. So what makes one model stand out from the rest?
Sometimes it is head turning good looks, sometimes it is exceptional acceleration and handling, and sometimes it is ground breaking new technology. Sometimes a new model captures the attention of the automotive press and mainstream consumers alike. And every once in a lifetime, a vehicle comes along that transcends all of these categories while capturing a massive amount of attention.
The Chevrolet Volt is our generation's transcendent vehicle. The Volt bridges the gap between the gasoline powered autos and conventional hybrids of the past 100 years and a future personal transportation system dominated by ultra efficient, near zero emission vehicles with a range of powertrains. The Chevy Volt is the world's first extended range electric vehicle. And exactly what does the world have to say about it? Plenty. Take a look.....
