Re: Reoccuring Rodent Damage

Bummer! I faintly remember old stories of critters liking some cars more than others but it's probably random bad luck. I would suggest placing a dozen traps in around the parking area to give them something more enticing. Worth a try anyway.

Re: Looking for CCS Type 1 to Type 2 fast charge adaptor pinout

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combined_Charging_System https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAE_J1772 I don't see anything on Amazon nearly as expensive as you mentioned. The Bolt uses CCS, which as far as I know is the same world wide so I'm confused about what you mean with Type 1 and Type 2, but I'm not...

Auto braking question

Should my 2017 Premier be able to auto brake? I have the warning red lights that flash and beep when I'm coming up on something to fast but I haven't ever felt like it was going to stop without my input. I have the lane keep warning but we lack the auto cruise control. Yesterday I read somewhere tha...

Re: Bolt accessory button questions

I would suggest doing a cross reference of the part to see what other GM's it fits. Then try to track one down in a salvage yard.

Re: OEM Tire warranty

Tire warranty is often hard to get and most EV's have short lived tires due to the high torque involved. Unless you have documented proof (a shop, not yourself in the driveway) of regular rotations it probably isn't worth your hassle to work through the system. But you can float an email to the manu...

Re: 2020 Bolt battery

But at that point I doubt I would install a new battery pack unless it cost 3-4 grand. In just the next two years there will be more new EV choices available, more advanced tech, and more EV's on the used market. Rather than spend $12K to $15K on a newer year battery I think a newer car would ultima...

Anyone have this sway bar problem?

I'm only at 22K miles but about done with the 36 month basic wty. I hope it's only a subset of cars and not most of them!

Re: Cold Weather Issues

Hasn't been below 20F in my area yet at night and they're forecasting a fairly mild December. I'm sure it will get bitter cold Jan-Feb and since I park outside most days I'll have it plugged in every night just so the car can protect the battery if it feels the need to. And I'll let it precondition ...

Re: Sadly Chevrolet is supporting Trump's attack on California's fuel standards.

And Toyota, Subaru, Mazda etc. Basically every legacy manufacturer that is way behind in EV development because they misread the future. The leadership has spent 40 years in ICE development and it's all they know. With 20+ new EV's coming to market in the next couple years they are doing whatever th...
