Black spots on side mirror?

2017 Premier. Several "spots" on the bottom edge about a quarter inch in size, sort of like the "silver" backing has corroded or flaked off. Being my first domestic car in about 40 years I assume this is normal for Chevy? Anyone else have this issue? I did recently get the notice...

Re: EV Battery Degradation Comparison Tool

Nope, it is just a blog that is part of a fleet owners website. I assume the data is aggregated from the all the companies tracking their vehicles. I mean, probably take it with a grain of salt but it was interesting selecting the different cars to compare. the Bolt is a little to new and fewer of t...

Re: Using Chevy Camera as dash cam

It probably isn't that simple. The forward facing camera is dedicated to the safety systems. The computers and software are busy dealing with that. The simple act of recording is quite different. Just like taking a video of the kids baseball game, it will beautifully record a line drive coming strai...

Re: Not charging anywhere near 238

Yes, now during winter when I charge at home (level 2) my middle number range estimation is around 120 miles on the 87% hilltop reserve setting, and just over 140 if I let it go to full. I also am not shy keeping the cabin temp about 75 degrees and I often precondition in the morning, sometimes twic...

Re: "Check engine" light???

If you have an AutoZone nearby, they'll read the OBDII codes for you (hoping you buy the parts from them). Then just google them.

Re: Automated Car Wash Mode

That seems like a strange car wash. I'm pretty old and I've never been to one that you don't just sit in the car and wait the 3-4 minutes until it's done pulling you through. Although often I go to a local hand-washed place that dusts and does the mats, now that even a basic gas station wash is $8 m...

Re: Not charging anywhere near 238

Unless I missed it in your post, what are your average outside temps currently? FWIW, my 2017 (23K miles) is getting about 120 set to hilltop mode, and last time I went to full I got 140-something. But our temps are between 5 to upper 30's so far this winter. I got my Bolt last summer and then I was...

OnStar cold weather warning

First time I've gotten this text message but probably normal for our northern friends. But it's my first winter with the Bolt. OnStar: Weather forecast predicts temperatures cold enough to immobilize your vehicle. As a precaution, always keep your vehicle plugged-in when not being driven. Sent to me...
