Re: Rate Chevy Bolt

I'm going with an 8. The Bolt has me completely satisfied in every aspect except the front seats. I'm under six feet tall, not overweight, but still find the seats almost pinch me into position in the absolute center of the seat. Besides the seats, it is much quicker than most people expect, handles...

Re: Tire Pressure, Miles per kWh & Range ..

I have run my tires on all my cars for years at the maximum pressure listed on the sidewall. That said, I believe mine are inflated to something like 51 psi. I get excellent range with my Bolt, most of the time it's just below to just above 5 miles per kWh.

Re: Where Are The Rear Jack Points?

I did get an S10 jack, the seller marked it as being from a 2000 model. I even went out and jacked the right front of the car up until the tire was about 2" off the ground. If that picture of the jack under {http://www.chevybolt.org/forum/12-wheels-tires-brakes-suspension/6025-bolt-spare-tire-o...

Where Are The Rear Jack Points?

Ok, I know it must have been discussed somewhere before, but I've checked EVERY thread in the General topics and EVERY thread in the Technical topics of this forum, and since I appear to be blind, I ask, "Where are the jack points on the rear of the Bolt?" I can see the front jack points, ...

Re: Did your dealership try to sell an extended warranty?

The only time my Prius left me stranded was when the Inverter failed. It died and my car rolled to a stop. The engine, which was running perfectly at the time it shut down, died because the inverter signal was gone. The electrical propulsion failed, even though my hybrid battery had 7 bars remaining...

Re: What do you know, it Fits........

That looks hilarious with the boat on top. It seems like it hangs over the length of the car in the front and in the back.

Great job!

Re: What do they want to know?

My favorite is always, “you mean it doesn’t take any gas at all?” Six years, and 3 BEVs and I still get this? On the plus side, the lack of demand makes negotiating easier. But c’mon ChargePoint, alter your business model a bit and install your own multiple unit super high powered stations like Tes...

Re: rear well modification

Thank you again. I was told an S10 jack would fit, but didn't know if there was a difference in the jack that occurred when the S10 was restyled. Also happy to see it loaded in your car as well. I'm more confident of this working now, before I spend the time, effort and money to do the same basic th...

Re: rear well modification

sunnyman, I looked at the picture of the foam version and like it a lot. Then I noticed the jack with the rounded contact point. What was that jack made for? This is on my to-do list and I was initially planning to copy your plywood idea, but now.... I probably missed where you mentioned it, but wha...

Thanks, I'm looking for a jack & spare for my Bolt as well, so I had to ask.
