We just picked up our loaded Red Bolt. Couple of things are missing. One my wife really wanted the sun visors to pull out so that they could more effectively block out the sun coming through the side windows. I am wondering if there are any aftermarket OEM like visors. Two, the shoulder belts lack the adjustment at the top so that for some people they cut at the neck. One thing I guess is to raise the seat, but that is a pain. Third, the missing garage door opener setup. I believe I can purchase that and just find a way to power it. Other than that the Bolt seems pretty decent thus far. This is our fourth electric car. Leaf, Rav4EV, Kia SoulEV+ and now the Bolt. Oh, by the way we are in Santa Barbara, CA.

Welcome to the forums and congratulations ! Not too sure if there is anything on the market for the visors yet, but I'm sure you could use a universal garage door opener like EldRick has provided an example of. It's still really early to see any sort of aftermarket parts for the Bolt yet.

Hi, I’m in SLO (San Luis Obispo) and purchased (leased) the same car a few weeks backed and was surprised there was no built in garage door opener. Thankfully, I had a compact garage remote already and used some Velcro to attach it under the console below the infotainment screen (found that idea on this forum). There are quite a few great ideas about a solution for the garage remote here. My solution is hardly noticeable and works well - actually an easier reach than the reach up to the rearview mirror as in my Leaf.

Our sun visors slide out, so I would think yours would as well. I also had all the windows tinted, so that helps as well. I also agree about the seatbelt adjustment - seems like some basic things were left out. I was also surprised to not find a sunglasses cubby. First World Problems - right.

Enjoy and be well,
Mark

For anyone who stumbles into this thread wondering about extending visors for the 2017 Bolt, see this post on how to replace the factory visors with extending ones from the Volt. Or you could probably do it even a little easier by using ones from a later model Bolt with extending visors.

I added the Volt visors to my 2017 Bolt - it was easy and the result was well worth it.
