Hi, Jeremiah. I had a very good ownership experience with my 2014 Volt. It was the first gen. My only complaint was the engine was somewhat rough running and noisy once the batteries were depleted. Also, premium fuel was recommended.
I did drive a 2016 model like your 2017 when it first came out and it was much smoother running on gas and was happy with regular unleaded. The showstopper for me was it was significantly smaller in the interior compared to my old 2014 and I needed a bit more carrying space. Overall I good improvement on the first gen. It is too bad GM dropped it.
