Hello! Joined the Bolt owners club today with a 2017 Premier. The primary reason for the Bolt was to have the HOV access as a daily commuter for my wife. A few questions for those experienced owners, especially in CA:

- Dealer didn't provide white sticker, but I know which DMV form needs to be submitted. Being the car is brand new and we won't have any registration docs for a bit, what's the status of being able to use the HOV lane prior to sticker approval?

- What is something you have learned from owning and driving a Bolt that the dealer didn't tell you?

I guess that's all for now! Hoping GM has created something worth taking the chance on. We do have a Tesla Model 3 reservation but with all the speculation on tax credit being available, production delays, we went with the "sure thing".

Don't drive in the HOV lane without those stickers. They will give you a ticket.
As soon as your reg comes in, go online and register for the stickers.

Welcome to the E-Side of life! :D

Welcome to the club! I hope you have as much fun and joy driving this car as I have :D As for you second question - I would not trust anything the dealer told me. The sales guy was not even sure of what the L mode really was. So yeah - read the manual and ask the forum. Some really wonderful and knowledgeable people here :)

Ha, well in all fairness I was under a bit of a time crunch and couldn't stick around for any detail walk through. I spent a bit of time last night in the car and the settings via the dashboard, I think I've got everything dialed in. The car is primarily for my wife, who had it today and came back with a "thumbs up".

Been an interesting read on the forums, found a thread existed for an issue I noticed while at the dealer - the driver side dash and quarter panel not lining up. I'll be bringing that thread to the dealer soon lol. Meanwhile, time to focus on a vanity plate :)
