When Volts are available, here will be the place to talk about how to Detail, Maintain and Customize your Volt. Other good topics are charging (solar or otherwise) smartphone app usage, etc.

My wife and I got #348 on New Year's day. We love everything about it so far....except, and this is a big exception, the interior is off gassing something terrible. We both get headaches and taste funny if we spend any time in it.

We've left the widows open for several days, but it still mighty strong.

Are we alone?

I had no smell problems with mine. Had a great "new car" smell when I got it. Then again, mine was sitting in the factory for about a month before it got delivered.

My Volt had a bit of a strong new car smell to it for the first 2-3 weeks. I was expecting that. It seems to have gotten a lot better in the last few days.
The answer is 0042.

Ours (#599) has some smell but not that bad. Hopefully it will go away soon as we just got it Sunday, 1-16-11.

Hi Scott, I have Volt #349. I don't have a strong smell in my car, it smells new. I have the leather seats. It smells like leather in my car.
