    I will always prefer Chevy. Leaf would not at all match the perfectibility of Volt.!!!!!

    I drive a Volt.

    There are a few times that I have put close to or more than 100 miles on my car in one day. Most of the time, I drive about 55 miles roundtrip.

    I get a little 100 MPG, which is well below average for Volt drivers, largely because of my longer than average commute. I already save about 80% of the gas I used to consume. Getting that last 20% is not worth it when the trade-off is driving in a car (the Leaf) which has the equivalent of a 1/4 tank (or less) of gas all the time.

    I can't believe the Volt didn't score much higher.

    They praise the Volt's interior but give a score of 6 vs 8 for the LEAF.

    They complain that the optional Bose sound system costs more but don't acknowledge the standard sound system is still better than the LEAF's and then they give the LEAF 8 over 6 saying the LEAF has optional winter heating, while the Volt has a much superior heating system, non-optional.

    No consideration for standard appraisial such as acceleration, braking, ride quality, steering precision/feel.

    Neither one interest me because they both have shortcomings that negate a choice of one over the other.

    Read the fine print on the Leaf website, "Like any battery, time and age will lead to a corresponding decrease in range.” For the truly committed, check out Green Car Congress:
    "Electric vehicle batteries have up to 70% capacity remaining after 10 years of use in an automotive application." (http://www.greencarcongress.com/2012/01/abb-20120118.html)

    In a country where the AVERAGE vehicle is 10 years old? Get real.

    The Volt has water cooled temp controled batteries, Leaf Air Cooled. Volt can't be over charged, Leaf can be left charging to long causing costly damage. Volt only uses 70% of battery memory for daily use, so memory loss over ten years comes out of the 30% never used buy the driver. It works that way to allow odvious memory loss over time without it changing or affecting the distance handling or comfort for the driver. Leaf not even close..

    Since I never want to stop at another gas station for the rest of my life, the Leaf is the perfect car for me and my families safety concerns. The Volt has too many safety issues.

    I drive a Volt and I'm unaware of any safety concerns. Please advise what the heck you are talking about.

    What is meant by "The Volt has too many safety issues." It has a 5 star safety rating.
