Re: Off grid charging the Bolt

FWIW, a similar problem and solution was discovered by the Leaf community as well. I think this will be true of most EVs.

Re: Trailer Hitch

Thanks for the link. That's not a big deal if I ever wanted to reverse it. Truth is, having a small 5" x 3.5" hole in the back bumper probably wouldn't bother me once it's there. It's just that initial cut. Funny you mention the VW bus. My wife and I are eyeing that to replace her '15 CMax...

Re: Trailer Hitch

I own my car, and hope to keep it for another 8-10 years. I'm just nervous about cutting the plastic. I don't think there is a way around it, and it sounds like a minor operation, so I really just should man up and do it. It's my "bravery test" for those of you who remember Bob Ross. https...

Re: Trailer Hitch

Did the hitch installation require cutting the bumper or fairing?

Re: WiFi Switch in Settings/WiFi

Wow, thank you for sharing that tip! It does bother me that turning WiFi "off" through the infotainment system does not actually turn off the signal.

Re: ground clearance on Bolt EV

Hmm. So there is room to lower it after all. Good. The Bolt sits WAY too high for my taste. Ha! I feel the opposite. I would like more clearance for driving over uneven ground etc. Sheesh! it even bottoms out when going over the speed bumps in our son's school parking lot! Any ideas for gaining a b...

Re: So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

... I take issue with the lack of built in nav too. First, it was promised to us. Second, there are plenty of trips I take into the mountains where there is no cell service and it can be easy to get lost. With Google Maps it's pretty easy to download the mapping data for a region before you go out ...

Re: So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

FWIW, while I have no issue with the seats, I've never claimed that noone does. Comfort is subjective. Clearly the Bolt's seats offend more people than a typical car. A Buick version would likely be more comfortable. And even the Bolt could see newer seats as part of a mid-cycle refresh. I have had...

Re: So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

By 2020 a 2017 Bolt will be akin to a Model T. Given that the 2019 Bolt only has marginal improvements over the 2017, you are expecting miracles to happen in the next year. I would be happy if they pushed up the QC rate on the 2020 Bolt from 55kW to 100+kW and changed nothing else. But I'm not hold...
