For true. You bought the wrong car twice over, but that's on you. All of the answers to your complaints were readily available here and myriad other sources. Sorry you've been disappointed, but sell the Bolt and buy something suitable to your needs.When I purchased this 2017, I screwed myself. NO heated seats or heated steering wheel.
For goodness sakes, the Spark EV had heated seats... As a matter of fact, this one I have is about as basic as you can get a Bolt. We should have looked around, and we did a bit but when the ink dried, we got what we have—pretty much stripped base Bolt. Grrrrr...what was I thinking? . . . . .
I enjoy driving an EV. But let's face it boys and girls, if you tell your neighbor that you got to plug in a 12V electric heat blanket, drive slower than traffic (you'd get run over driving 60 on I71 north to Cleveland) and then, depending on the wind, you aren't going to make it to Cleveland and back on a cold January day. I bet he's not going to run to the Chevy dealer and get himself a new 2020 Bolt anytime soon. COVID-19 aside, if my wife and I want to go watch a Browns game, I'll need to drive my ICE car, because the Bolt won't make it.
Think about that. While I didn't buy my Bolt new, at $36000, you can't drive it over 130 miles in the winter (okay perhaps a bit more after the battery issue is resolved) But still?
It's not that I go to Cleveland every other day, it's my standard for range. While Ohio has plenty of level 2 chargers, we seriously lack high speed DC charging. There is one, count'em one in my county. And none along I77, I71 north or south bound. There are a few located closer into the Cleveland, but you have to get off the expressway and go find them. What PITA!
Agree with your rant; life's too short to have to resort to add-on diesel heaters and plug-in lap robes just to accomplish regular car tasks.
