Re: Dan Neil on the Prius Prime

Looking further, seems I was half-right on Prius versus Prius Prime economy (in hybrid mode):

EPA numbers:
56 (58/53) Prius Eco
54 (NA/NA) Prius Prime
52 (54/50) Prius

CR numbers:
52 (43/59) Prius
50 (NA/NA) Prius Prime

Re: Dan Neil on the Prius Prime

The Prime is a better car to drive on longer trips than the Volt, and the Volt is better for trips within its AER. The Prius has a more comfortable interior, with more interior space and much better visibility. The Volt performs much better. If you want the 'EV experience' the Volt is the better ca...

Re: BOLT SEAT ISSUE - no DATA thread

Adding padding to the seat back DIY video

For those who want more padding in the seat back, someone made a video describing how to do it. The process appears more involved than adding padding in the seat bottom (shown in http://www.mychevybolt.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=6157 ), though it does not involve irreversible modifications, ...

Re: BOLT SEAT ISSUE - no DATA thread

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=6157 describes a different modification for those who find the seat bottom to be too narrow between the bolsters (adding foam under the middle of the seat cushion). This modification is easily reversible if desired.

Re: 6 Weeks & Tire Failed--Is It Covered?

Yes, that's I what I'm saying. Tire (rubber) and wheel (metal), assembled and inflated to normal pressure fit fine underneath the false floor that lies more-or-less flush with the folded rear seats. If a full size spare tire is in there, will the cargo area carpet be flat below the false floor (or ...

Re: 152 mile range when fully charged?

In recent driving just before recharging, were you getting worse economy, commonly due to using the heater?

Re: Replacement Tires

The selection of self-sealing and run-flat tires is very limited. Currently, the only option in the same size is the OEM tire with self-sealing. If you do not want to carry a spare tire, your main options are: a. Choose a self-sealing tire. b. Choose a non-self-sealing tire, and carry a tire sealant...
