    Thanks for the link, I was wondering if there were still hard feelings from EV1 drivers that bought Volts.

    Well, there are still hard feelings from at least one Volt owner that desperately wanted an EV-1;)

    EV1 was a great vehicle, leasing one fun car to drive everyday. That was until GM crushed them. Ticked off a lot of people who fell in love with the car.

    GM didn't give a da*m about their customers. So, you can't blame folks still having bad feelings with GM.

    Knowing GMs' past record, what's keeping GM from doing the crushing of leased Volts?
    Answer: nothing

    Yep, I leased one in L.A. my brother also leased one in Az. The EV1 was going great (loved the looks on peoples' faces when driving by) and in silence. :) :)

    The reality struck :sick: :sick: , both vehicles werereturned to GM for crushing.

    THAT was a very sad day indeed.

    All those buttons remind me of my '91 Seville and '93 Allante. Buttons everywhere. :D
