Re: New to EVs, buying a used Bolt in a few months. Which accessories / equipment do I need?

Obsessing on the DCFC not being standard is between you and the GM Marketing Department. We know who won the debate. Who was right is for history to decide. In the long run, we're all dead. jack That is an easy attitude for you to have, Jack: I am on my 2nd "optional" DCFC on a Bolt EV; a...

Re: New to EVs, buying a used Bolt in a few months. Which accessories / equipment do I need?

Defining our terms is all-important.. jack vines Jack: I understand your point that you are the exception to the rule and you do not need DCFC. But you should understand that for the FEW of you (1 percent* of Bolt EV owners) that absolutely will NEVER need the DCFC (because if you need it only ONCE...

Re: Chevrolet announces update to all 2017-2019 Bolts with fast charging

I went back to the EA charger in Mojave and this time the larger capacity station was working: I was hitting 50-53 Kwh at the beginning. I will get the software update next dealer service and go back and see if it improves the throughput. I thought it only improved cold weather charging? If so, you...

Re: New to EVs, buying a used Bolt in a few months. Which accessories / equipment do I need?

The DCFC option is a must have. Enough time has passed to once again point out that because this "must have" is optional, we ALL pay more for it, than if it were just installed as a basic feature! It has been optional since Day 1, so that GM could advertise the Bolt EV (with full federal ...

Did you mean "why did you lease the Bolts?" or "how much did you pay for the lease?" (both are valid interpretations of your comment ;) )

Re: Heated rear seats

I love ... But in addition to that, what really sold me on the Bolt premier was the 360 degree overhead camera. That feature is spectacular !! I had my grandson convinced that I had my own personal satellite following over me, until he said: "But Papa, what happens when you go into a tunnel!&q...

Re: experience with lease return process?

Get all of their responses in writing! Or in email! You can't prove "what you were told" and they can change their mind later. Back in 2002, VW had an internet ad saying that buyers of new beetles would get in a new iPod for free with purchase. After my daughter bought one, I asked the de...
