Re: Doug Score Review = 59/100

I didn't really appreciate how nice it was to coast until I drove the e-Golf. I've been sort of used to the whole regen when easing off the pedal since I've dealt with it since 2004 with my Honda Insight (RIP). Because of that, I didn't really notice anything different when driving the Leaf or Volt ...

Re: Looking at buying vs leasing - never leased before

I didn't get far enough in the process to verify for sure, but my impression wasn't that they would keep the $2500. The official deal is $169 + $1995 + tax/lic/etc. But with no down it went up to $240/month. I didn't get the feeling they were trying to pull any funny business. Either way, I'm off th...

http://www.qualitychevy.com/VehicleSearchResults?search=all&make=Chevrolet&model=Bolt+EV&trim=LT&year=2017 This is a dealership in Escondido, California. As predicted by oilerlord here is a $6,500 off MSRP sale on 2017 Bolts. I called the dealership and they said it apply's to sales...

Re: Doug Score Review = 59/100

I like the regen paddle because when you use it you can be sure you're not accidentally engaging the friction brakes. I agree it's not technically necessary, but it's a nice novelty and does come in handy sometimes. When going downhill on the windy road toward Stinson Beach I managed to go all the w...

Re: So do you think they'll really kill the federal $7500?

I was thinking of rushing to get a Bolt before year end, just in case, and even managed to find a good deal ($245/month), but ultimately I decided against it. I could afford the lease, but I've only owned my used Leaf for a year, and I didn't want the hassle of having to resell it. I also didn't wan...

Re: So do you think they'll really kill the federal $7500?

I think there's probably a better than even chance the credit is maintained since the Senate bill keeps it. That being said, I wouldn't say it's certain. However, it's also not even certain the tax bill passes at all considering how hapless the Republican Congress is, and how terrible the overall bi...

Re: Capital Chevrolet in San Jose -- Deals

How did you manage to get a loaded Premier for only $306 per month? That seems like a very good deal.

Lately I've managed to get a quote for an LT with DCFC for $272/month with zero down, but that's before tax, so probably more like $290 afterwards.

Re: 2017 Nissan Leaf Hits Back At Chevrolet Bolt

And I'm also worried that Nissan still won't bother with a thermally managed battery pack. That would be pretty much a deal killer for me, based on the track record of their previous packs. Sean, I don't think you have much to worry about. That graph must show the "average" temperature ba...

Re: Capital Chevrolet in San Jose -- Deals

So, with tax that would be about 303 per month, or total of 10,600. After 2,500 CA rebate it is 8,100, or 225 per month for 36 months. And for those who can charge for free at work, the Bolt is a great car, with TCO cheaper than a leased Toyota Camry! I plan to lease the Bolt summer of 2018 when my...

Re: 2017 Opel Ampera-e likely limited to Norway

Well, perhaps not sell under the Opel brand then? But this also goes for other areas where the car is in very short supply like Canada. I'm thinking more generally about GM's interest in pushing the car.
