Re: First time with the Bolt in heavy snow

Driving up the inclined driveway in reverse sounds like a good idea, maybe I'll try that next time (if I don't have winter tires yet). Thanks!

Re: First time with the Bolt in heavy snow

My Bolt was twice trapped at the bottom of an icy driveway in recent weeks, spinning its wheels uselessly. All of my neighbors using the same driveway had no problem with their AWD vehicles. So I figure the source of the Bolt problem is the two-wheel drive. My next electric vehicle (when the lease i...

Re: Under settings what does" device remote access" reference

I tried to get KeyPass to work, because I figured it might be useful to remote-start the Bolt from my phone, but the process setup was so complex and seemed so prone to failure (e.g., if remote-start signal can't penetrate walls) that I decided to stop trying after about a half-hour of effort.

Re: Finally ran a USB cable for iPhone mount with "minimal" visibility

I've found the Fuse Chicken Bobine Auto to best the best solution. Been using it for probably 3 years in different vehicles. Ordered the pro-clip but returned it when I found it was passenger side only. And went back to the Fuse. Nothing beats it. https://www.fusechicken.com/products/bobineauto Tha...

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

I also recently had a very poor experience with an EVgo charger, when with my Bolt almost completely depleted, and the weather extremely cold, I drove to a mall where PlugShare reported that fast chargers were present. They turned out to be EVgo, which I'd never used before, but I figured to give a ...

Re: Indication for auto seat heat please.

In my Bolt, the seat heater remembers its setting between when the car is turned off then on again, but the dashboard forgets. So if I set both the seat heater and dashboard to 3 dots, then the seat goes back to 3 dots worth of heat the next time I start up the car, while the dashboard reverts to 0 ...

odd photo related to the phone charging pocket

I noticed that occasionally a mysterious complex image would pop up on the center-screen dashboard, but then disappear within about a second, too quickly for me to make out what it showed. For a long time, I couldn't figure out how to trigger its appearance. Finally, I discovered that the image appe...

Re: How Much I Paid for My Bolt

Just came back from the closest dealer and I asked several times and they said there would not be a disposition fee unless I return it early. There is also no mention of acquisition fee. Is that right? Disposition fee is most likely $395. If they say there is no disposition fee, they probably mean,...
