Volt a letdown for lead foot
Drivers with a lead foot will feel let down by the Chevy Volt.
Some might say I’m annoyingly aggressive behind a wheel.
On Queen Street, whenever possible (read: safe), I will try to beat a streetcar through the intersection.
Not in this car.
I couldn’t get a head start against a Chrysler Fifth Avenue when a red light turned green on the Bayview Extension.
It was almost as frustrating to stop as it was to speed up. There was a crunchiness to the braking; like it slowed in phases, not on my foot’s command.
I liked some things about the Volt.
The headroom. I’m 5”10 and didn’t feel a bit cramped. The quiet. If it weren’t for the electronic dash
display, I wouldn’t know the car was on. Actually made me feel a little more Zen than I do in my SUV.
If I wasn’t running late for an appointment, I might have laid back and enjoyed the drive.
