The Best-Loved Car in the World


I’m feeling missionary tendencies these days. I have found love and I want to share it with the world. As I travel around I keep my eyes open for people who share my beliefs, scanning their cars for signs that they are part of my flock. When I see them, I say a silent “Good On Ya!” I pray for the hordes of unenlightened people, still laboring in darkness, driving conventional internal-combustion automobiles.

bryan welch with chevy voltI think everyone should have a Chevy Volt.

I was gratified when, two weeks ago, Consumer Reports announced that the Chevy Volt was the best-loved car in the world among people who drive one – for the second year in a row. I felt gratified, but not surprised. I got my own Volt in August. I have never loved a car like I love this one.

And I have loved some cars.

There was my rusty, shag-carpeted 1969 Toyota Land Cruiser, vessel of my teen-age dreams. Then I had a 1967 Dodge Power Wagon crewcab pickup. Best truck ever.

A decade ago I developed an obsession with Audis. I blush. They weren’t the most reliable cars; they weren’t the most fuel-efficient; they weren’t the most affordable. They just felt so, so good. They’re pretty, too. If you love driving, don’t get in one. Stronger men than me have fallen.

I completely agree with you Bryan and its nice reading your post. I recently visited your blog and liked to read it. Chevy volt is the finest hybrid cars and not like other hybrid cars. Your car suggestion and selection is good. Electric cars progress rates in the markets are slow and still need to be encouraged for usage of electric vehicles.

If we go for the looks and features available in Chevy Volt it is no doubt one of the finest car we have ever had. But, as I have a BMW and I love this the most so, for me BMW is the best car. But, here we not have the fight to say my car is best or the author's car, the main thing important is the maintenance of the car. Without maintenance neither a BMW nor a Chevy Volt will run properly. So, it is our responsibility to maintain the car in such a way that it will stay away from all issues. As cars are the machinery products, it is obvious that problems will arise. We have to notice those errors and have to proceed likewise.

Auto market is the biggest market and it consist of several types of vehicle with the different types of facilities in it. People loves car as a vehicle to drive because it has all the luxurious facilities and people loves to ride it. I must say that the use of several types of the car are provided with some special types of facilities in it.
