I'm excited to be joining this forum now as I have been on the GM Volt forum for a few years now. Last week, I traded in my 2014 Volt for a new 2017 Bolt. I've been batting around the idea for a while now, but the trigger ended up being my new job. Previously, I had a 3 mile round trip commute. 3 miles. Needless to say, unless the temperature was dropping below 15 degrees to activate ERDTT or we took a longer trip, my miles were almost all electric. Three weeks ago, I started a new job where my commute increased 47 times in length. I now drive 71 miles to work in the morning and 71 miles home in the evening. After two weeks of doing this in the Volt and having to fill up about every other day, I decided it was time to change. I couldn't be happier. Even with the cold weather we've been having, I have no issues with getting to and from work with a split of 30 miles on rural roads averaging 60 mph and 40 miles on the interstate running at 75 mph. My employer is even willing to install a level 2 charge station, so I will effectively be driving the car during the week without having to pay to "fuel" it. I'll be posting my experiences here too, since I'm pretty sure I will be putting more miles on my Bolt than 95% of the owners out there. Just this first week alone, I've put nearly 1,500 miles on the car. My biggest complaint to date has to be the thin padding of the bolsters of the seatback. I honestly have bruises on either side of my back from the pressure points. Other than that, I love it. The miles fly by, the car is unbelievably quiet, the technology is fantastic and other than burning through tires over the next few years, I feel confident that my overall maintenance costs will be minimal. Again, excited to be here and pick up information and feedback from fellow owners and enthusiasts. Electric is the future and I'm so happy it's here now.
