Unless you understand that after several billions of government subsidies and a huge Government funded promotion only 1800 Chevy Volts have been sold TOTAL!!!
In the meantime the Ford F-series trucks are AGAIN the best selling vehicle in the US. Followed by the big Chevy and Dodge pickups, and other large, V-8 powered vehicles totally dominate the top ten selling vehicles.
But isn't Toyota the best selling??? Yeah...the best selling CAR. The best selling vehicle (not limiting the discussion to "cars" to obfuscate the realities) is the big Ford F150. As always. If only lying and political correctness equaled sales, the Volt would be king. Assuming it can find a source of electricity that doesn't come from a powerplant fueled by something the "green" idiots approve of.
I drive a 1996 Cadillac SLS with 110,000 miles on it. Total out of pocket expenses including tires and brakes is still less than $2400.00. Still gets around 20 mpg in town and up to 29 mpg on the road , driving the speed limit, which is 75 MPH. It is AMERICAN MADE. Guess what my next one will be? Will not be manufactured by foreign country.
I continue to drive my 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP which has 121,000 miles on the clock. It looks great and runs basically like new. I plan to drive it for a much longer time and enjoy the freedom of no new car payments.
If I live long enough I'll buy a Ford product because GM cancelled the Ponchos, which I still love.
