Re: Bolt convenience question

I think you do need an OnStar basic plan for the app to work. However, all Bolts come with 5 years free, and the oldest Bolt is only 4 years, so everyone still gets it for free. We didn't get that in Canada - 3 months free, one of which was during pandemic lockdown. :lol: I'm a little confused abou...

Re: Bolt convenience question

The Bolt's app uses the cellular system, so the "range" is essentially unlimited. It does have to be set up for your car; my salesman did that for me. It does NOT react instantly, the delay is apparently dependent on the cellular system. You do not need to be subscribed ot OnStar for the ...

Re: Towing really heavy stuff with the Bolt

Re: Reoccuring Rodent Damage

Not a Bolt specific problem, but the critters really seem to like the warm charging modules in the winter. Pain in the butt if you live out in the woods. A few drops of peppermint essential oil from the local health food store every couple of weeks have been keeping them out of both the Bolt and the...

Re: Charge door light

Thank you. I had a little LED flashlight attached to my keychain but it broke and I'm already tired of fumbling with the charge port in the dark.

They're out of stock at the moment but hopefully more will arrive at the end of February.
