I have had my 2019 Bolt for about 9 months and what annoys me is that the lowest volume you can have the radio at start up is 13. I had two Volts and you could start the car and the radio volume could go as low as 5. Sometimes 13 is still to loud.

I was annoyed with the default radio settings my first few weeks with the Bolt. Every time I turned it on I was "blasted" by the radio. Finally, like XJ12, I got accustomed to adjusting the volume (I turn it to) before I turn off the car. Does seem odd that there couldn't be a more sophisticated volume control.

I'd be happy if the radio stopped un-muting itself upon startup. Sometimes it stays muted when the car is powered up, sometimes not. Do I really need to shut down the entire infotainment system every time I shut off the car?

I've gotten in the habit to manually turn the volume to zero before exiting the car if I want the radio "off" at start up. I do this if I know I'm going to be taking a passenger on my next use of the Bolt. I say exit, because I usually turn the car off first, then adjust the volume prior to opening the door. If I just pulled into my garage, I also return the infotainment screen to my preferred startup screen because I just used the 360 view to pull in.

2019 Premier. I don't have any problem with radio volume. When I start the car it is at the same level I was listening to it when I turned it off. Now, iPhone carplay is a different matter. I have to turn the volume almost to max to listen to podcasts via bluetooth (don't recall what happens if I use a usb cable). When I'm done I get blasted if I forget to turn down the volume.
