Is the Chevy Volt Lease as Good as it Looks? 

Before you go out and buy or lease a 2012 Chevy Volt, there are a couple of things that bother me about this car. First of all, it’s important to understand that the $39,500 price tag is what makes the LVR look so good. Outside of the hybrid technology, does this drive, look and feel like a car that’s worth around $40 grand?  I’ve heard that it’s nothing like a GM Cadillac. Secondly, I’ve been told that on long trips, when you’re not able to charge the battery, the average fuel mileage isn’t all that great – not nearly as good as the Prius. The Cadillac CTS Lease offer which yields a payment of $319.00 with $2300 down, would come real close to the cost of the Volt if you waved the down payment.  In fact, the Infiniti G25 leases for just $379.00 a month and 0 due at signing. Neither of these cars have an MSRP as high as the Volt, but I would venture to say both of these cars drive and perform better than the Chevy Volt. If I’m going to pay for a $40,000 car, I don’t get too excited about gas mileage, but hey – maybe that’s just me.
