Erick Belmer bought his 2012 Chevrolet Volt about a year ago with 20,000 miles on the odometer. And within four months, the odometer climbed to 146,000 miles. Both of these milestones were shared with us by InsideEVs, including Belmer’s latest achievement. During an interview, Belmer stated that he hasn’t noticed any loss in battery capacity, and that he is more than happy with the vehicle.
As you can imagine, Belmer does a ton of driving. Through it all, he says that the Volt has held up flawlessly. Not many people get to daily drive their dream car, especially when the daily commute is 220 miles there and back. Regular maintenance includes oil changes every 38,000 miles and rotating the tires every 10,000 miles. Beyond that, Belmer really hasn’t had to much else to the car, which is impressive to say the least.
We’ve sure seen plenty of reasons to love the Volt lately, and with the all-new 2016 Volt on the horizon, has the plug-in car sparked any interest in you? Give us your feedback in the comment section below.
