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

Not sure whether you are implicating me in that. I take issue with the lack of built in nav too. First, it was promised to us. Second, there are plenty of trips I take into the mountains where there is no cell service and it can be easy to get lost. Nice to see a sympathetic voice and someone else ...

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

FWIW, while I have no issue with the seats, I've never claimed that noone does. Comfort is subjective. Clearly the Bolt's seats offend more people than a typical car. A Buick version would likely be more comfortable. And even the Bolt could see newer seats as part of a mid-cycle refresh. I have had...

Re: 4G Hotspot poor performance/radio reception

My OnStar WiFi continues to be poor when I need it the most: Delivering an Uber passenger to a location in the hills. This time, I turned off my iPhone WiFi and my T-Mobile data was still working. I received another “restart” from the OnStar rep but I cannot tell if it improved the service once I re...

The OnStar rep did some update in real time while I was talking to her.

Re: 4G Hotspot poor performance/radio reception

I’ve never been happy with my $20/month unlimited data WiFi.

I had OnStar update it once but the performance is spotty.

I keep it now because it might help in the hills for my Uber app connection.

Re: Finally! For $249 I have a permanent Nav and no longer have to plug/unplug my iPhone for CarPlay!

Congrats to you on using the Bolt for Uber! You are making something like 15%-20% more that your gas burning co-workers, I believe. Bolt is the perfect Uber car. I am averaging about $1/mile income with a cost of about 4 cents per mile for electricity. I have 19,000 miles left on my lease and I fig...

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

Does any Bolt EV leasee here have any experience with negotiating a year extension to their existing lease; whether GM Financial or otherwise?

For the right amount, I may just do that and wait out the 2020 release of the newer long-range EVs.

Re: Finally! For $249 I have a permanent Nav and no longer have to plug/unplug my iPhone for CarPlay!

If you are willing to make your calls using your existing phone via Bluetooth, then a 7" Android tablet or cheap Android phone can do the trick for the rest... Interesting alternative! I find that once I connect my iPhone by USB for Apple CarPlay, that Bluetooth connectivity to any other iPhon...

Re: charging cable for sale

You can get an AV TurboCord for about the same price.

Works on both 120v and 240v and packs into a small footprint case:
