I don't have a Volt, but I have driven one and everybody I know with a Volt likes it. Owner satisfaction is pretty high. It isn't as reliable as a Prius, but isn't really unreliable either. If you are used to a soft ride, you might think it the Volt's ride is bumpy. More sporty than a Prius. I like that you can go full throttle and it won't kick the gas engine on. If your commuting distance falls within the EV range, it is probably perfect for you.
