Just bought a second-hand Volt

Post by Peter C in Canberra » Sun, 21 Jan 2018, 06:07

Hi,
I just bought a second-hand MY13 Holden Volt. It is doing very nicely. It drives smoothly like an EV. I have only a couple of times noticed a very brief hesitation and wonder if that is one of the clutches in the Voltec arrangement doing its thing. Our petrol car is leaving home with our daughter. This will be our long range car now and, being plug-in, it can also replace the short range car I converted 9 years ago. The conversion will, I hope, also go to a good home. We will keep our Mitsubishi iMiEV as our other short range car.
Cost $25,000 with 86,000km on the clock in immaculate condition.

Nice one Peter - was the Volt local or from interstate?

I took an early morning bus from Canberra to Sydney, did the familiarising, test drive, negotiating and paying through the middle of the day, then drove home to Canberra in the evening.
