We've had our Energi since October of last year, and we've not had a single problem with Sync (yet). The only problem we've had is the charge port light went out after couple months. We got that fixed and it does work now, but I think it flashes, indicating charging, when it's not supposed to.
I agree - they don't market it very well. And it's quite a shame they don't. The car can shift paradigms. I try to do everything more efficiently now, and I even think about how I could do this or that using less energy. And I never used to think about where to park my car in a parking lot or where I park at home, but now I look for a shady spot in summer and an open spot when it's cold. In winter, we will take trips while the sun is shining, and early or later in the day when it's hot.
I'm amused by the EPA's MPG estimate for the car. We have always exceeded that in non-highway driving, and usually by many MPG. I've achieved up to 70+ MPG in hybrid mode alone (no climate controls on), but I'd say we average around 55-60 MPG in hybrid from May til October. We average around 45 MPG in the dead of winter (with winter treads on). We do practice light hypermiling (P&G in D), but we are not extreme about it. We are taking our first long trip in a couple of weekends, and I am curious to see what kind of highway MPG we get.
