Anyone else having tire issues?

I've hit the curb twice and have blown out the sidewall. With no spare all I can do is get a tow. How much would run flat tires hurt performance?

Sport Mode

I've been enjoying being in Sport mode recently! Lots more fun!!! I don't drive that much anyhow, but the car keeps going back into regular default mode. Anyway to make it stay in sport mode?

Re: Feedback for GM

I've just started using the sport mode! Lots of fun, makes it seem like a different car....more like a sports car! It would be nice if it would stay in sports mode instead of going back to the regular mode all the time!!!! Don't know why my son wanted an Audi A5 instead of a Volt....but maybe if he'...

Re: 120v Charger Ground Loss problem

The Volt charger draws big time from the Ground wire! I ran a dedicated wire for my Volt and bundled the ground wire like all others were at the sub-panel (wound together and screwed to the box). This was not good enough for the Volt! After pulling my hair out I looked at the main panel and some gro...
