Minor inconsistencies in the finish paint. More annoyance than embarrassment. To Chevy's credit, when I completed the new car buyer's online satisfaction survey and mentioned the paint, I received a call from a very professional customer satisfaction rep within 5 days. I declined any warranty work on the paint job; don't want to invite future paint failures due to aftermarket paint touchups. Love the touch screen controls and optional leather seats, but the rest of the features and materials are pretty basic. Trunk cover is cloth with elastic hooks, no garage door opener, no rear window wiper, etc. Little things like that. full 2017 Chevrolet Volt review
