Re: Bolt convenience question

And you need to be careful with the wording. They change it a lot. For a while it was the Basic Package. Then I think they changed it to the "Remote Commands" package, which was free for 5 years, but not necessarily Basic, which didn't include "Remote Commands" or something like ...

Re: EV Battery Degradation Comparison Tool

2) If the data set is small or restricted to "certain climes", it isn't very useful. Again, pretty much BS. Not necessarily *untrue*, just useless. Data on ONE 2013 LEAF driven in Portland OR is useless to just about everybody. GIGO. Yep, that's my point, although the it isn't necessarily...

Re: stock charger says 120V

You can open that billfold just a tiny bit more and buy an actual L2 for not much money and charge at 3.8kW or 7.2kW depending on what your 240V circuit and outlet is rated for. Mostly agree, except possibly your definition of "tiny" here. ;-) An adapter can be made for $20 or bought for ...

Re: EV Battery Degradation Comparison Tool

But looking at the line for 2012 and 2013 LEAFs, that degradation looks like complete bullshit. Not necessarily... We know some Leafs in hot climates had really bad degradation. But that wasn't the case in other areas with cooler climates and places that were L2 heavy without a lot of Chademo. If t...

Re: Bolt Front Seats Recall Media Campaign

New Bolt owner here... has anyone tried adding any padding to see if that fixes the seats? Yeah, it was so simple, even I could do it. ;-) To be fair, the seats didn't bother me (and I have a 120 mile round trip to work daily), but my wife said she noticed it, although it didn't bother her.. But I ...

Re: Bolt EV problem with liquid-cooled CCS cables

I haven't printed this or had a chance to try it out yet (I have only needed to QC twice, and both times it just worked for me), but there is a 3D print that might help with this... (not mine...)

I got my Bolt in October 2017.
I have never paid for an OnStar subscription, so I'm just on basic.

My precondition still works.

Good luck!

Re: Does the MyChevrolet App work?

I can answer the basic question for me. Yes, the app works. I (especially in winter) frequently use it to precondition the car. It should only need the "Basic" package from OnStar, which I believe is still included with the car for 5 years (was when I got my 17). As for "the app seems...

Re: Amazon Package Delivery To Your Bolt

I wondered if this would work with the Bolt, just because the articles I saw mentioned they would remotely pop the trunk. I don't think that is a feature we have??? Yes, you can remote unlock/lock your Bolt via the OnStar or MyChevy apps. Amazon is able to open the car using it's KeyPass program li...
