The only other thing was how busy the radio, navigation, and control panels were. I couldn't seem to figure it all out. I found the A/C button, but really, it was a bit too clustered together. If I had spent time reading the manual I might have had more luck, but who reads those anymore these days unless for emergencies?
Cargo storage was mixed. While the rear seats folded down to open additional storage, it still lags the Toyota Prius in storage space. The other bad news was that since there is no hatch, the trunk lid severely limits how much cargo will fit, even with the seats folded down.
Overall, the Volt was impressive, and overall a very attractive vehicle, but some shortcomings on cargo and interior issues may present a deal breaker for some.
