2014 Chevrolet Volt

When it comes to individual automobiles, there's bound to be some positives and at least a few negatives.

What separates the good from the bad in the automotive world are the negatives.

By this, we mean that if the negatives outweigh the positives, or if the negatives happen to be linked to some vital component of an automobile, then the vehicle is often considered below par.

If, instead, you have to dig deep to find the slightest annoyances to list in the negatives category, then we'd consider the vehicle in question to be above average or perhaps even exceptional.

Most Chevy Volt reviews list tons of positives, with only a few negatives.  By and large, the vast majority of Volt reviews out there praise Chevy's plug-in.

This particular review sums up the negatives rather well.  In our experience, you really have to dig deep to find flaws with the Volt and that's the case here in this 60-day review.

So what are the negatives?

The sound system is adequate, but not as good as a premium sound system can be, perhaps a result of using especially efficient Bose speakers to reduce power consumption. I've encountered a couple of minor software glitches: On two occasions the display showed I used gas for 0.1 mile while the battery was full, and another that displayed the backup camera image for a short time when I was driving with the display set to navigation. All self-corrected. And lastly, the Volt doesn't have a hard drive to store multiple CDs and doesn't have power seats.

If those are the only negatives, then could you imagine what the list of positives look like?  They'd probably occupy an entire book.
