Re: Time for a level 2 charger. Suggestions?

I use the factory OEM charger, with the "pigtail" attachment. Very happy with the result. I use a garden hose holder to keep the charge end out of the rain. https://i.imgur.com/7JSk2bZ.jpg?1 I had to use a dremel tool to relieve a bit of plastic to make way for the electric wire. https://i...

Re: Pigtail for Bolt

Doc, your question: "I just got my 2019 bolt recently and though the Charging cable that came with it looks like the one in this post it clearly says 120v on the other side. Is this what you all have been supplying 240v to without issues?" The answer is, yes. Been doing it since I came hom...

Re: Dead Car, Dead 12V Battery

We’ve had our 2019 Premiere for about two weeks, so, this is just a newbie observation. Should not the EV manufactures out there put a low 12v battery warning light/symbol in their vehicles?

Re: Rate Chevy Bolt

My wife and I have owned/driven our 2019 Premier for about two weeks. Really enjoying the car (we have five, including the Bolt, as we live in two states ~"snowbirds"). Much prefer driving the Bolt to any of the other vehicles we have (in MA, at the moment; Jeep Wrangler Sahara, RAV4, and ...

Re: Lessons Learned From a Long Distance Winter Road Trip in a Bolt EV

Thanks for that interesting trip report. Having put 20 years in the NYPD I find that I have no desire to return to that city (too crowded, too expensive, too noisy, too tough to get around. But, otherwise, it's fine.) Hope to pick up either a Bolt (most likely choice) or a used 2018 Leaf (long shot)...

Re: Bolt OEM Tires v. Summer Tire Performance

Arthur, thanks for the interesting article. I do not yet own a Bolt (my intention is to purchase either a Bolt 2017 or a Nissan 2018 Leaf in 2019 -- I will keep the car on Cape Cod and will only spend five months a year there, hence the logic of procuring a used vehicle). As I will be using my EV as...

You are going to have some adventure! I live on the Cape (well, in the summer at least!), so am with you in spirit! Do keep us posted on your trip.

Re: 120 volt charge cord included?

I know of no reason why the dealer should put two identical charging cables in the vehicle and charge you that extra money. One cable comes with the auto and you might well want to buy an aftermarket 240 volt version, but that has nothing to do with the dealer. Yes, I'd demand they take one of the c...

"Transport Mode" -- For long term storage

I stumbled on this site and thought it might be of value, noting how many discussions there are regarding long-term storage methods for the Bolt: Transport Mode https://gm.oemdtc.com/2435/11-08-49-001u-transport-mode-on-message-displayed-in-driver-information-center-dic-andor-battery-light-is-flashi...
