Thanks for the replys. I'm not in a rush & expect/hope that it will be available late fall.
I started looking at the Gen2 Volt in April 2015, ordered it July, and picked it up Oct 31, so just goes to show that part of me kinda makes up my mind, but still open to see what happens, especially to get good info from various sources.
I do quite a bit of mixed driving. Everyday back & forth to where I walk [I'm retired] is a couple of miles. Weekly grocery shopping RT is 45 miles [live in Cambria, California central coast], once a month to Costco [80 miles RT], & monthly lunch with friends in Salinas [125 miles RT] or Gilroy [150 miles RT].
One thing that has caused me concern with the Gen2 Volt, due to reliability issues in Consumer Reports annual April issue, is it now is listed as not an acceptable used car due to reliability, however, customer satisfaction is good. So my tradein or private sale will probably be not too good & the longer I keep it, as with all cars, will get worse.
It'll be interesting to see just what Kia will do with the plugin. Will they try to compete with the Volt? No one else has!
