Purchased our Bolt and Niro from the Lee Johnson dealership in Kirkland -- people (both sales and service) seem decent and competent. Not a fount of EV wisdom, but haven't been unhappy with the service there. Would love to hear about a place in the Seattle, or better yet Tacoma, area that really knew EVs.Just noticed the regional pages here, and I do have a 'local' question. I wonder if anyone has a favorite Chevy dealer in or around Seattle for maintenance and repairs (zero need so far about two months in!).
I'm just curious to have a couple of leads on tap so I don't accidentally bring it to a clueless shop.
Feel free to answer about other cities and areas too. Thanks!

Newbie awaiting a 2023 Bolt EUV from a dealership that had it on order and in transit. I realize that it's still a waiting game, but I thought it had to be an advantage to starting fresh. My question is how far you'd be comfortable driving a new Bolt on it's first charge? I live in Helena and will have to pick it up in Kalispell when it arrives with two route options, with and without charging options. Dave (or anyone else), would you take the Sealey/Swan (200 miles w/no charging options) or swing around to 93 thru Missoula (230 miles) so that you'd have charging if necessary? I should mention, that both routes include having to cross the Continental Divide (about 2k vertical ft).
Appreciate everyone's insight and experience and look forward to learning how to drive all over again!
