Re: Do not use EVgo fast chargers. No, seriously. Just don't.

Hey EVgo Rep -- if you are listening here ...

Re: Why connect to Wifi?

Yes, the OnStar basic package is free for 5 years and with that you can still connect the car to Wifi networks and use the key pass and fob remote features.

Nice find, thanks!

Re: What is maximum charge rate you've seen?

I've seen about 45 when my SOC is between 20 and 60;
drops into the 30s until 75 then into the low 20s and teens after 85% SOC

Re: New ABB 150 kW charger in Fremont

As of today, the prototype sign is still up over the charger, and the handle is secured with a metal zip tie type band to prevent removal.

Re: Audible warning for Lane departure and blind spot warning

No audible warnings on the Premier model (somebody asked); I'm surprised that no lane assist or blind spot warning on this car; I thought maybe I had not come across that setting yet. Of course, would never be a deal maker for me..........much bigger priorities, ie battery range. It's an option on ...
