Re: Dead Car, Dead 12V Battery

It does seem amazing that 50 years after putting a man on the moon, and back in the days when cars had dynamos (remember them?), a little red lamp (with a filament.....) would come on to warn you if your fan belt had broken and the 12 v battery wasn't being charged or was otherwise faulty. Progress?

Re: Reoccuring Rodent Damage

Try a few mothballs under the vehicle

If neighbors or friends have pets offer to brush or comb them and save the fur, put it in an old sock and place near the car.. You won't smell anything but rodents will.

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
