Re: Bolt Front Seats Recall Media Campaign

That's a nice response. And I wasn't trying to be argumentative. I'm Just baffled why some actual purchasers didn't spot the issue when evaluating the car. If it was that uncomfortable it should have been a "deal breaker' and the unhappy folks should never have become unhappy owners. Just sayin...

Re: Bumpy Ride - Stiff Suspension

Looks like the Tesla Model 3 has also chosen firmer and sportier suspension tuning. http://www.motortrend.com/cars/tesla/model-3/2018/exclusive-tesla-model-3-first-drive-review/ What’s blanching, though, is the car’s ride and handling. If anybody was expecting a typical boring electric sedan here, ...

Re: Bolt Front Seats Recall Media Campaign

I have to ask: If spending only a few minutes in the car you find the seats so unbearable - why did you buy the car? That's tanamont to admitting that you didn't do a very careful assesment of your potential purchase. The same can be said of complaints about the suspension. Even a reasonable test d...

Re: Bolt Front Seats Recall Media Campaign

" we all agree the seat problem is of biblical proportions". - a totally false statement.

Many Bolt owners and potential purchasers find the seats completely satisfactory. Myself included.

Re: Bolt Front Seats Recall Media Campaign

Bolt sales are doing pretty good. Even while being held back by the slow rollout. It's outselling the antiquated Leaf in spite of the huge Leaf incentives and discounts. New Leaf with only 150 mile range and ineffective battery thermal management is a big disappointment. Nissan has clearly blown the...

Re: Bumpy Ride - Stiff Suspension

Don't waste your time sparring with iletric. He's on a continuing crusade to trash the Bolt - and it's getting a little tiresome.

Re: Anything on the 2018 model year?

There is no heat pump in the Bolt, just a (non-heatpump) heat scavenging system for the electronics, and a resistance heater. Yep. Exactly the same system that's used in my twice as expensive Tesla. As the traction batteries get fairly large the percentage of the battery required for cabin heat (no...

Re: Bumpy Ride - Stiff Suspension

I find it interesting that there is no consensus that this is actually a problem, that some like the suspension/ride this way. Suspension design ranges from harsh but with great road feel to soft and mushy with no feedback. Picking a point along the spectrum is a design decision, it's not a "p...
