Re: RECALL

Many of the buybacks are likely due to certain state laws that require it, and make it easier for the consumers in those states. But overall I agree that GM needs to keep Bolt owners happy, and show the general public they're on our side, for the future good will they will need to sell their upcomin...

Re: Really Flaky USB connection

Yes, the Premier adds two on the back of the center console for rear passengers. But I just measured mine again charging my old iPhone SE and a AA battery charger and the best amps reading I got was .98 so pretty weak as far as charging goes. And from experience I know plugging in my phone to run Go...

Re: Really Flaky USB connection

Sounds like that port isn't putting out a full 5v and your drive isn't getting quite enough power, which your phone also indicates.

Which port are you using? My USB tester shows 5.15v on all four ports on my 2017 Premier.

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.
