Heater and defrost in Volt
My wife and I have been keeping an eye on the Volt since it came out. We've test driven three times. I like the way it drives and I really think Chevrolet has refined this car. Other than a few annoying design flaws we think we could seriously get into one. Today we took it for a long test drive here in Washington.
The first thing we noticed was the heat would not stay on, the car kept shutting the heat off, also the defrost doesn't work for squat. I mentioned the heat shutting off to the salesperson and they said it was normal and that the car would shut it off to conserve energy. I don't know about anyone else but when it's 38 degrees outside I want the inside cabin temp to maintain at least at 68 degrees.
Is this truly normal? The engine was running and the car seemed to be running normal.
Also does the defrost really suck that much? I hate driving a car with fogged up windows, even my race car can keep the windows from fogging up and it doesn't even have an evaporator!
