Re: Regen question

D is for highway when you want GRADUAL speed changes. Like coasting down an off ramp. L is too aggressive for high speed use. I do exactly the same thing. And once in town, I switch to L to come to a stop. And if I miscalculated I switch between D and L to make a perfect stop behind the line withou...

Re: Rumors of adaptive cruise control? And more?

Charge slider is overrated. We would never consider it as anything useful. It's a carryover from the Leaf1 days when the rumor was that not charging 100% protects battery longevity. It did not, nor it does today. Source please. https://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/how_to_prolong_lithium_base...

Re: BOLT SEAT ISSUE - DATA COLLECTION & REPORT HERE

Has anyone been successful in getting a warranty repair or replacement of the drivers seat? New 2019 version has new seats and new suspension. Harass GM and maybe they will replace the seats for you with the new ones (go sit in them first). Try to have GM "fix" the old ones 3x then claim ...

Re: Better seats for 2019

Not only seats, also that over-tightened suspension.
About time, Chevy!

Re: Extending battery life

This 80% charging or charging 100% as close as to departure to save battery has been debunked since Leaf 1. The best way to protect the the battery, having gone through Leaf 1, Spark EV, Kia Soul EV and owning 2 Bolts since 2017, is to limit deep discharges . This is why Bolt is holding up so well--...

Re: Misadventures at Anaheim Stadium

If I was allowed to leave the car parked in situ (ballpark) I would return in a.m. with a couple of tools, take the battery out, take it to O'Reilly's and have it recharged.

Then reverse.

In fact I finally own one of those rechargers. It's a small box, plugs into 110V and works like a charm.

Could you elaborate on this trick? More detail? Are those "HOME" the screen button, and "NEXT" the physical button next to the volume knob?

Thanks.

Re: The two latest recalls, A172114410 and N17127150

Call me old school, but I still like to play CDs which means folders off the thumb drive. I'd like to, that is. I stopped b/c music stops after each folder's last track. I got real fast tired of clicking through the steering wheel buttons like something only Bill Gates and his disciples would design...
