Also from PHX area (East Mesa). Enjoy!! I leased a 2017 the day they were available in the Valley. Its perfect for the area. Ensure to keep it plugged in during those HOT HOT summer days. It will use the plugged in power supply to keep the batteries conditioned. The fans are VERY loud - surprised me the first time I head them kick in. After returning my lease I searched around for a handful of months on what to get next and ended back up with another Bolt! Seems to be more chargers popping up outside the valley so trips to Vegas and California are only going to be easier.

Thanks for the warm welcome! and for the advice bl80. I've been wondering how to help my Bolt survive the AZ summers.

I've yet to go through a summer with the Bolt but I've learned that you also want to keep the battery above 40% in the heat if it is not plugged in, for battery conditioning. This is important to me since I'll be at work in the middle of the day with no place to plug in.
