Anyone own and drive a Chevy volt?

What are the pros and cons of it? What features do you have and like about the pre I stalled features? How many miles can you go on a charge if you're not driving on a highway or are driving on a highway and mixed? How long does it take to charge when the battery is half or completely empty after driving? How's the handling of the car? Do you have any pet peeves? Any issues? How long have you owned it for and how many miles? Can you see how many miles on average on a charge then on gas? How often do you fill up the gas volvo vocom 88890300 and where do you charge it up besides your home and what type of volts do you need to charge the car?

Thanks for your input.

I've owned the 2017 Chevy volt since the end of March. The engineering is great. My combined mileage over 5800 miles is 117 miles per gallon. That's 3500 electric miles and 2500 gas miles mostly on two way blacktop. Speed limit 60 miles an hour or through town. The car handles great. Can take a corner aggressively and is very responsive. The acceleration is fantastic for a small car. No problem with passing. The electric range is 58 miles full charge. I charge at 12 A and it takes about eight hours from dead to full charge. On 110 current. The glove compartment is worthless. It mangles anything you put in it because everything catches in the hinge. The guy the designed this should be made to open and close it 1000 times. The rear hatch latch depression catches everything. It's impossible to open the rear hatch without getting your hands dirty. Cleaning the car is a pain. Lots of little nooks and crannies that are impossible to get into. Try cleaning the volt emblem on the back! Cleaning the inside of the rear hatch window will put you in the hospital. Even with an extension handle it's impossible. This stupid thing will not read my iPod or anybody's iPod through the USB port. It worked intermittently when I bought the thing. I took it in to see what the problem was and they could do nothing. I kept having to plug it in and unplug it to get it to read the iPod. Then it just stopped recognizing it entirely. The same with two different iPods. Took it back in and was told they could do nothing. Called them, still nothing. $40,000 car and I can't play my music. GM keeps telling the dealer it's an iPod problem with their software. Wrong! If that was the case it would've never worked. After having the car serviced and this problem continuing I left the dealership and the cruise control stop working. I had to stop the car turn it off and restart it to get the cruise control to work. If it happens again I'm going to go crazy. Had three Hondas never took any of them in for warranty work. As a car it's great as for the peripherals, not so sure.
