Re: Question: Ever been ICE'd?

One universal problem with ChargePoints is they never have long enough cords. Looking at the routes where I may be most likely to want to use fast charging, I see that ChargePoint chargers are mostly 24 kW. For comparison, on those routes where EVgo chargers are present, they tend to be more numero...

The recall that changes the software to detect a weak cell condition earlier does appear to lose the following settings if they are not the default ones: * Home location. * Location based charging. * Hilltop reserve mode. * When to charge based on electric rates. Possibly others as well. However, el...

Re: WARNING: Recall firmware update can break your Bolt!

I think it's a battery module that needs to be replaced. Probably means that your car was about to have the weak cell failure, but the original firmware was giving no warning of that. Then the dealer put on the new firmware which detected the problem. If that is the case, the new firmware merely fo...

I had both the detect-battery-problem-earlier and radio re...

Re: Mileage decrease with bikes on roof?

My experience with roof rack crossbars alone, when driving on a long flat bridge on a calm day with cruise control at 65mph: * Yakima round bars or Thule rectangular bars with nothing (other cars): -8% or so * Yakima aero bars (CoreBar) with nothing on them (Bolt): too small a difference to be notic...

Re: Tire Pressure, Miles per kWh & Range ..

Remember, seasonal temperature changes can affect tire air pressure. Expect to have to top up the tire air more often in the autumn, but less often in the spring.
