Re: Gauging battery health

Unfortunately there isn't a way to find out before you purchase the car. I got my 2017 a couple months ago with 21K miles, knowing that the Bolt has thermal management and I did months of YouTube research also. If you find a used one that has a reasonable amount of annual mileage on it I wouldn't b...

Re: 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 Always check the comments on PlugShare.com. That's the most up-to-date source on availabi...

Re: Recargo's DCFC Station Contract on 101 in Central California

Paul, thanks for the writeup and links. Ask anyone who has ever tried to build anything and they will tell you about the difficulties of overcoming the myriad of legal and regulatory requirements.

We are approaching the two-year anniversary of leasing a 2017 Chevy Bolt EV. This is a good time to take stock of any degradation in the Bolt's traction battery capacity and how that compares with a 2015 Nissan Leaf we leased previously. Everyone who uses a smartphone understands that lithium-ion ba...
