Chevy Volt Owner Zips Past 120,000 Miles
Almost immediately after we posted on the first Nissan LEAF owner to whiz past 100,000 miles, we received word that a Chevy Volt owner in Ohio has that LEAF’s total mileage beat with ease.
Erick Belmer is the proud owner of a 2012 Volt with 120,928 miles + on the odometer.
Yes, that’s right. There exists a 2012 Model Year Chevy Volt with more than 120,000 miles on it, of which 46,000-plus miles were done on electricity.
As Belmer tells InsideEVs, the Volt was purchased on March 28, 2012. Since then, it’s seen a daily commute of 220 miles there and back, with a single longest trip of 430 miles in a day.
At 120,000-plus miles, Belmer seems to love his Volt now more than ever.
What’s not to love when oil changes come every 38,000 miles and tire rotations every 10,000 miles. That’s basically all the maintenance that’s been required on Belmer’s Volt.
As Belmer says:
“This is the first car I’ve purchased that I truly feel I got more vehicle than I paid for!”
It’s rare these days to feel you ever get more than you’ve paid for, so we think Belmer’s comment speaks volumes for the Chevy Volt.
