Re: Heated rear seats

I love ... But in addition to that, what really sold me on the Bolt premier was the 360 degree overhead camera. That feature is spectacular !! I had my grandson convinced that I had my own personal satellite following over me, until he said: "But Papa, what happens when you go into a tunnel!&q...

Re: Chevy Bolt 225 Mile Roundtrip with 21 Percent Charge Remaining

As always, great write up! Sounds like a fun trip. I admire your persistence in writing these up. Trips like this are now so routine for me that I no longer bother.

Re: 2020 owners!

I'm doing my first DCFC in my 2020 now. I have noticed on a 58-60 degree day it is not stair stepping down on the charge rate. It has been a slow continuous taper down in charge rate. Started at 35% battery and 44kw charge rate and it has been a slow taper down. Now at 85% charge and 20 kw charge r...

Re: Heated rear seats

My 2017 Bolt has heated rear seats. That's one of the reasons I went with the Premier over the LT. (The other was the roof rails). I have kids who are often with me. They sure appreciate the heated rear seats. They now complain about their mother's car which doesn't have them.

Re: Any Bolt owners in the Northeastern PA area?

I don't live in your area, but I drive through on occasion. The in-laws have a vacation home in Equinunk, north of you. I also pass through on I-81. I sure would love to see a DCFC station go in around Scranton / Wilkes-Barre.

Re: Transformer Installed at EA's Bakersfield Station

As feared if any CHAdeMO car came by they would have to wait for her to finish on the CCS plug because they couldn't use the CCS unit 4 that I was leaving. This reminds me that good charging etiquette at a station equipped with multiple chargers but only one with CHAdeMO would be to avoid using the...

Re: Goodbye to my Beloved Bolt

Congrats on the upgrade! The biggest complaint I have with the Bolt is the DCQC speed. How fast is the eTron? 150kW or so? Have you hit up an EA station with it yet? How does the experience compare with the Bolt? Is it noticeably better, or just not as big of a deal as I might hope? Again, congrats ...

Re: Should I feel confident buying a used high-mileage Bolt?

No, if the high miles came via a family driving Uber/Lyfft/urban delivery 24/7. All the suspension, brakes, steering, doors, windows, hatch, seats, take a pounding. Why do you say that? I just purchased a new 2019 Bolt EV to replace my leased 2017 and I expect to pay off the loan in 18 months with ...

Re: Does Bolt EV have a battery buffer like in the Volt?

I'm sure the Bolt has some kind of buffer, at least at the low end. Any lithium battery will be severely damaged when fully discharged - that's not restricted to Tesla. That said, I can't imagine it has anywhere near the percentage buffer of a Volt. The Volt's battery system was perhaps the most con...
