OEM Tire warranty

Does anyone know if the OEM tires on a 2017 Bolt have a warranty? At 30k miles (mostly local pottering and not much high speed highway use) ours are quite worn and I doubt any good beyond 36k, which doesn't seem very much to me for a "non-sporting" application. The Michelin Green X 215/50 ...

Re: 2020 Bolt battery

Agree it will certainly be expensive, especially right now so soon after "release". But in a couple of years it could be the "standard" and if my original battery is ever destroyed or otherwise useless it might be an opportunity to get an upgrade.

12 volt AGM battery

Much has been said about the reliability of these batteries, but on a temporary basis ONLY what are the downsides to substituting a "conventional" SLI 12v battery? (if it fits mechanically) I realize SLI batteries don't like deep cycling, but everyone has left their lights on at some stage...

DCFC at LAX?

Any suggestions for reliable (even if a bit expensive) DCFC chargers on 405N and 101W heading northwest from LAX?

Does "Greenlots - 11107 Nebraska Ave, Los Angeles, CA" have a good reputation?

Thanks

"Power antenna" noise

If I wait in the car for about 10 minutes after a drive, there is a whirring sound for a few seconds just like a power antenna retracting. Is something turning itself off after 10 minutes?

Charge Hub

Anyone finding their Charge Hub map doesn't reflect reality? Here in Santa Maria the map shows two DCFC icons (brown), but when I called they confirmed what I suspected - there are actually none. It is confusing as one icon on the map (Community VW) states "DC fast port(s) $0.50/hr 10:30pm - 6:...

Re: When I use paddle brake on steering wheel, does brake light come on?

I think I read somewhere that it comes on at a pre-programmed deceleration, i.e. a certain negative g, but it won't be on when you are at a complete stop unless your foot is on the brake pedal
