Re: myChevrolet app vehicle status does not update

Mine did not work after delete app/reinstall either. But after I set up keypass again it worked - both when connecting via onstar or by Keypass. The onstar rep suggested this and he stayed with me on the phone throughout the procedure. He admitted that the onstar servers were down and only were full...

Re: Vehicle status - "KeyPass Setup Required"

Posted on another form that GM is having issues with the on star server. They are aware of it and promised a fix sometime on Monday.

Re: More good press!

Not a single problem with my 4 month old Bolt with nearly 5K miles. A lot more reliable than my Tesla Model S. Its needed several repairs that would have cost many thousands if out of warranty. That's only one data point but I don't think my experience is too far from normal. I only hope the Tesla M...

Re: September sales up - 2,600

I'm glad to see this too. My Bolt, in many ways, is just as satisfying as my Tesla model S. Bolt is smaller, lighter, simpler, and actually more practical for many uses. But I love them both! EV adoption is still way too slow, but I feel like the "tipping point" is coming faster than many ...

Re: BOLT SEAT ISSUE - no DATA thread

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2dgxWTOnVn8 I cannot, for the life of me, understand why people don't do this simple mod. It only takes a few minutes and costs maybe $5. If you can't do it, I'm sure an upholstery shop could follow the YouTube video and do it for you. I used only one 1/2 inch layer of ...

Re: Transmission leak?

Great to hear! I was pretty sure they'd get it resolved. After several more days of normal use, you're confidence should be mostly restored. My Tesla Model S (like many earlier ones) required a complete drive unit replacement. Some have had the unit replaced multiple times - so far only once with my...

Re: Transmission leak?

I sure understand your frustration with the drive unit leak. I've had a couple of new cars over 50 years of driving that had to have major repairs when nearly new. Both times the outcome was completely satisfactory and both went on to become reliable and satisfying vehicles. I recount this only to e...

Re: BOLT SEAT ISSUE - no DATA thread

Buy a $5 piece of foam and spend 15 minutes installing it. Your seat will feel better.

Re: Bolt Front Seats Recall Media Campaign

I don't understand why Chevy seems to be slighting Canadian buyers. There were a few Bolts brought to Fl from CA before the order books opened here. I got a brief test drive but was allowed all the "seat time" I wanted in several in-stock cars. Sat probably a total of 30-40 minutes in a co...

Re: Bolt Front Seats Recall Media Campaign

Another observation: Early Tesla Model S had seats that were deemed uncomfortable by many. It took Tesla 2.5 years to offer a $2500 "upgrade" to slightly better seats. Tesla never came up with a "fix" for earlier cars and never offered any remedy. It's not reasonable to expect Ch...
