Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

We don't drive 15,000 miles per year, more like 10,000, and I estimate that 80%+ of our mileage is "city". In our admittedly limited case and urban setting, a Volt suits our needs very well. Almost any gas you put into that imaginary Subaru in a month is more gas than goes into our Volt, which has had its 9.5 gallon tank filled once in the 11 months we have had it; that is certainly a difference of more than $45/month. I will also admit that for many it will not make financial sense or be a size/style car that they want.

And I have also never bought a new car for myself - all of the new cars have been for my wife. I'm glad that she likes fun-to-drive cars, as the Audi A6 was the first car with an automatic transmission that she ever owned.
