    Well that didn't last long. Let's see if Mitsubishi has better luck when they enter the market.

    i can't believe it. obama specifically told me that the reason GM went bankrupt was that they weren't supporting cars like the volt that the people want.

    I'm hoping Cracker Barrel now takes out the electric car parking spaces at their restaurants.

    Hush. I love those things when the wife is with me. 15 weeks and I'm already trying to get her to use it.

    You will come to LOVE those things in the near future.

    Embrace your laziness and be served by the store.

    Why do they want the leases returned even if they pay market value for the car? That thing would be a museum piece if you were one of tens of people who bought the thing. This article also encapsulates why throwing money at green technology will not necessarily pay off the way you intended. A billion dollars to pull the plug on it less than a year after production! My goodness. What a mess.

    Been a pretty big advertising blitz for this lately, too. I think I saw that commercial narrated by Tim Allen just yesterday.

    Couldn't agree more. If she can't walk 15 extra feet, she probably doesn't need to be going to Big Lots.

    I work with two people who each bought one of these things.
