Re: Chevrolet maintenance schedule for the 2017 Bolt EV

We had a similar experience. Our dealership sent a notice recommending changeout of the 2017 Chevy Bolt's brake fluid at the 25,000 mile mark. I've never before heard of an almost new vehicle needing the brake fluid changed as a matter of routine maintenance re: without having the brakes themselves...

Re: Audi E-Tron road test in Motor Trend

What is difficult to understand is the Audi E-Tron has one-pedal capability, but they choose to downplay that as if it were a liability. You can dial in low and high regen settings if you wish; the latter allows the E-Tron to be driven with one pedal like a Tesla or a Jaguar I-Pace in similar modes....

Audi E-Tron road test in Motor Trend

Anyone else read this road test in the March 2019 Motor Trend? I'm prepared to agree and accept the Audi E-Tron will be a very good BESUV, but then for $75,000, it should be. My problem is with the biased and really slanted opinions; Angus Mackenzie goes on for most of two pages praising Audi's inte...

Re: So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

From these forums we learned that the technology is changing so fast that it made sense to lease. Yes, No, Maybe. As long as the BEV in the garage accomplishes the needed transportation chores, does it matter that there's something newer, better, more expensive out there three years later? YES! Of ...

Re: Decided to Lease a Bolt This Week - What Is Your Opinon of these terms?

To answer the OPs question - No, I wouldn't lease on those terms. IMO, the technology is changing so rapidly that it'll probably be in your best interest to walk away from the car in three years. There'll be better (and less expensive) EV's on the market by then. That's why I wanted to lease but the...

Re: "Auto" HVAC questions

or all those car makers could be wrong. Does anyone really believe the mass market makes choices in their best interest? No, the consensus of this BEV forum regularly reiterates the mass market is terminally flawed, Manufacturers have to sell what most choose to buy when gasoline is sold at below i...

Re: "Auto" HVAC questions

Sunroofs are not compulsory on any vehicle and you always have the freedom to say no to them . Are you sure? Many today have sunroof/moonroof as STANDARD EQUIPMENT today. The following is just a random sample: The Acura ILX is a small luxury sedan that’s loaded with premium features, and Acura had ...

Re: Tall guy in a Bolt update - I fit!

There hasn't been a lot of discussion here about the height and angle adjustments on the Bolt seats. I've spoken with a couple of owners who didn't even realize the adjustment exists. Read the manual, use the levers find the sweet spot.

Re: Upgrade to Heated Steering Wheel

Again, not directly answering your question, but when I looked into adding rear parking sensors to another GM product, the wiring was already in place, but I was told the computer is programmed to look for and recognize only those systems installed at time of production. It requires dealer computer ...
