    I believe the government gives you a $7500 tax credit if you buy an electric car. If that ends so will the sell of the electric car. Be safe and enjoy the ride. Larry

        A friend of mine has a Volt and the other day it would not start. Luckily was still under warranty (35200 mi) and as it turned out a sensor went bad. They put in a new sensor and then had to reprogram the car at a cost of almost $4,000.

        In the long run I think what you save in fuel costs doesn't make up for maintenance and battery replacement unless you trade while the vehicle is still under warranty.

          Not just that! Without paying for fuel taxes it has been entertained to tax one for miles driven. So running my D-Max is subject to double taxation?

          Here in Michigan were about to pass another 20cents per gallon to fix the roads, yet the builders are not held accountable for the marginal work that needs to be addressed 2 years down the road.
