Re: News about Bolt Battery Fires

I had interaction with your team when I was asking if the 'DCFC Robustness' service bulletin was free and if it can be included in the current Fire Recall? It would save time for everyone if the Chevy EV Concierge/Tech Support staff had a script explaining that, "The DCFC Parameters are the la...

Re: Phantom Power Usage?

I'll just go ahead and say that if it's unplugged, it would be cause for concern to me. Being put of bumper to bumper warranty, unless it's something obvious from the dealer's perspective, they're likely to charge you to investigate. This is the first I've heard of this.

Re: Phantom Power Usage?

Is the car plugged in or unplugged when this happens?

Re: Range indicator said "Low" then Bolt immediately died.

My lifetime efficiency is 4.7 miles per kwh, but the tripometer itself reset to zero after 100,000km (62,137 miles I think), but it restrains the efficiency.

Re: Range indicator said "Low" then Bolt immediately died.

Have you really put 62K miles on your Bolt in 18 months? Or is that a typo? Need to update it, I just past 65k yesterday. I did 4k miles in 5 days or 8k miles on it in 3 weeks when I did the cannonball run and subsequent zig zagging across the country on the way back. I've driven back and forth to ...

Re: Range indicator said "Low" then Bolt immediately died.

I’m not trying to be a jerk, but is there a reason you don’t just recharge sooner? A better question, why is my range indicator not accurate? It's spot on with my Spark EV, and other people with Bolts don't seem to have an issue. If I had to guess, I'd say my Bolt has a "failing" battery ...

Re: Range indicator said "Low" then Bolt immediately died.

It nearly happened again the other day. I was traveling, stopped for an hour, had 31 miles of range left. Picked out a charging station 12 miles away. Took back roads instead of the hwy which cut the distance, and was more efficient than I had been driving prior to the stop, and looked like I was go...

Highest Mileage Bolt EV?

I know there are plenty of Bolts with over 100k miles, but I'm curious how much further beyond that someone has gone. I know Eric Way (News Coulomb YouTube Channel) has exceeded 120k, but I wouldn't be surprised to learn of significantly higher mileage Bolts, as we approach 4 years since its release...
