    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    What makes you think they wouldn't risk it? I've talked to car dealers who freely admit that they've sold previously wrecked vehicles... and no it doesn't always show on car fax. Sometimes they wreck the cars before they're even sold them. Sometimes they take back leased vehicles that have...
  2. Better off with a Bolt + a Volt? Or stop with the middling steps and just get a Tesla already?

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    Funny.. when I was young I though being middle class would mean you feel that your in the middle of being poor and rich. Now I realize that being middle class means that sometimes you actually feel rich.. but more often than not you feel poor. You never really feel that you have it just right...
  3. Better off with a Bolt + a Volt? Or stop with the middling steps and just get a Tesla already?

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I am a pretty satisfied Bolt owner, however, to answer the original question, I'd choose the later option. 1. If your asking the question you can probably afford either. 2. The supercharger network makes fast charging your Tesla cheaper, faster, and more available then mucking around with the...
  4. Liking The Chevy Bolt; Not Liking Chevy (at the moment)

    Chevy Bolt EV: Likes And Dislikes
    Regardless of time or kwh.. the install cost of 50- 80 Kw chargers are fraction of the cost of 150-350 chargers. The 50-80 mark lends degree of propietarity to GM for charging Bolt's, as competitors charge much faster or slower-- or on different connections all together. In other words...
  5. Dealer charges for Bolt computer updates

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    A lot of times the 'list of fixes' is a joke. My first and only update through the dealership, which was free, claimed that it 'addressed safety and camera issues.' What did it really do? Shrink the camera display and remove features from android auto.

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I'd like to see the Bolt's software explored and modded on a forum like XDA-Developers. How great would it be if we had custom ROMS to add a subtract features, change colors, display characteristics, etc! I'm sure if there were enough of us with the appropriate access, we could at the very...

  8. Bolt Battery Warranty to Repair or Replacement. $16,250 Battery Replacement Cost

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I'm sure that for 95% of us, our packs will outlast the: exterior paint, interior seats, headliner, HVAC, electronics, screen, etc. And just as with the majority of ICE cars that are replaced by the owner that is just sick of the car, and who finds that fixing up all the little things would...
  9. Pressing "PARK" while still rolling forward . . .

    Technical Discussion
    Don't get me wrong, I am a Chevy guy, but my wife's Toyota engages the parking brake AUTOMATICALLY when P is pressed. Updating our Bolts to do this would make a fantastic OTA update! Yes?😏 Maybe?🤔 Probably Not?😒
  10. Tesla targets, Bolt not

    The EV Lounge
    I do have to hand it to Tesla drivers though.. I've never seen one driving badly.. and I live in Florida where so many other drivers are. Perhaps they are more cognizant or proper driving because of the cost of their machines, or because they are trying to be efficient. I would have expected to...
  11. My impressions of the seats, etc

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Test Drive Report
    Please hold the fat jokes to the end..:ROFLMAO: Everyone says more cushion. Half of my left leg literally hangs off the seat. Is the seat uncomfortable?.. not for the part of my backside that actually fits on the seat. Am I fat? Well 6'1, 210, bench 225 and run 7 minute mile and 25 minute 5k...

    Chevy Bolt EV: Likes And Dislikes
    HD is installing 24Kw chargers because that is what their e- bikes use. Nissan installed Cademo chargers at their dealerships and partnered with 3rd party vendors because that is what their cars use. Chevy has been extraordinarily absent in infratstructure, partnerships, dealership charging...
  13. Has anyone here ever had to replace their brake pads on their Bolt?

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    27k. My brakes actually seem to have gotten better with age. The manual talks about a break-in period of 500 miles.. seems like it was more like 5k.
  14. Will 225 55 R17 Fit?

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    Hi all, I don't know if anyone would know for sure, so I am open to guesses. Would this tire size fit the Bolt? I'm looking at a set of Bridgestone RE980 AS. I am quite partial to the brand as they lasted longer than any other on my last 2 cars. Not only do I want a slightly larger tire...
  15. Has Anyone Put The Michelin Tire Warranty To Use?

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Maintenance Schedule And Servi
    I've always questioned the value of rotating tires on a FWD vehicle. The 'better' tires should be in the rear. FWD eats the front, thereby leaving the better ones in the back.
  16. Has Anyone Put The Michelin Tire Warranty To Use?

    2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Maintenance Schedule And Servi
    I'm at about 27k miles. I noticed that the tires are rated for 60k. In my paperwork it does mention a tread life warranty. I have rotated the tires every 7k.. paperwork specifies between 6 and 8. Has anyone else got a prorated amount for premature tire wear?
  17. how to tell if bolt has DC fast charge?

    DIY And How To
    Probably a discussion for another thread.. but if the 'rollout' of EA and EVgo DC chargers had focused more on highways instead of stores and malls.. I would certainly use DC more.. As slow as it is to recharge.. cutting through mall traffic is even worse.. and ending up in a mall/ box store...
  18. how to tell if bolt has DC fast charge?

    DIY And How To
    In a thread from over a year ago, someone asked if they should buy a DC-less Bolt if they could save the $750. My original response was, if you could save more than $750, then it might be worth it to go without. I'm not sure that a lot of readers followed my logic because some of the responses...

    Software And Firmware Updates
    Seems GM removed it from the android app weeks ago.
  20. How much does a permit cost to install a NEMA 14-50 in your state/county?

    DIY And How To
    $70 in materials is great. I used about $250 o_Oo_O.. but I am 40A, (50A max) ready. I purchased about 15' of 6 gauge which was about $100, metal flex conduit, metal box, metal hangers, and the outlet (almost 80), a 50 A breaker and some miscellaneous materials.
