I have no idea what type of logic you use... First you say " it's on an individual's blog, so it must be true." as discrediting the individual and then you say "Steve is just another Bolt owner who has a blog, so his experiences carry little more weight than any other member here; but who're ya gonna believe?""Creaking issues" c'mon; it's on an individual's blog, so it must be true.
As a counterpoint, from Torque News blog by Steve Birkett :
IMHO, Steve is just another Bolt owner who has a blog, so his experiences carry little more weight than any other member here; but who're ya gonna believe?
Any of us are free to believe as we choose, but anecdotally and statistically, the Bolt is essentially trouble-free for most owners. To get a sense of real problems, read most any other car forum and the issues other marques have are larger, more serious and more likely to leave one stranded. The "creaking problem" and most other ant-**** issues brought up here are only noteworthy because the mainframe/powerplant/battery are so dead-nuts reliable.
There is a 5 page thread about people here having issues with their sway bars and other problems causing creaking. This is a small forum, so the issues are relevant. My point was not that the Bolt was an unreliable car, but people post someone having an issue with a Tesla battery out of warranty past 125,000 miles. ALL cars will have issues. It just so happens that many of the EV's have many less issues. Creaking issues may not be an issue in a ICE vehicle because engine noise could make the noise less noticeable. With an EV we hear more wind noise and creaks. They make kits for most vehicles to try to reduce outside noise in additional seals. My experience has also been trouble free, but I also know a co-worker with a Bolt that has had a battery replaced recently. It was the same issue as a few people here had recently had.
