front license plate bracket

I live in Michigan, which doesn't require a front plate, so none was installed on the Bolt when I took delivery. My VW had it in the trunk, so I could install it myself, but Chevy apparently doesn't do this. Is it an extra-cost item, or can I just ask the dealer for it? My vehicles sport a National ...

Re: 120 volt charge cord included?

We've now moved into "how to piss off a customer without really trying": Having printed off this thread, I returned to the dealer, looking for a refund of the $500.00 for the 'extra' charge cord. I had called and spoke with the salesman first, so he knew I was coming, and what my purpose w...

Re: 120 volt charge cord included?

LB, Thanks for that info, I never saw an order form, it was all done verbally. I told the salesman that I wanted a Bolt, Premier, loaded. This dealership is relatively small, in a small town, and doesn't even stock the Bolt, in fact probably isn't really authorized to sell it, but they're affiliated...

RE: turning on the surround cameras: I found the function. I think I prefer the Leaf's hard button.

Re: 120 volt charge cord included?

Thanks fellas, it's as I suspected. It's probably an honest mistake on the dealer's part, as they don't sell many in this area (lower SE Michigan), and might not realize that the cord is included. Mine might even be the first for this dealer. And, I am aware that the technical term is EVSE. While I ...

120 volt charge cord included?

Took delivery of my new Bolt on Monday, and now trying to get familiar with it. One question: Shown on my detailed invoice is "120 volt charging cable, dealer installed, $485.00" Sure enough, there's 2 cables in the storage compartment, exact same part #. I'm assuming that the Bolt, like t...

Re: Bolt EV gripes

FWIW: I've driven a Leaf for nearly 3 years now, and have only charged away from home a very few times. There are no DCFC stations anywhere nearby anyway. A few more L2 stations might be nice, but for my use, even those are pretty superfluous. It'll be even more so when I get into a Bolt.

Re: A Car Dealers Won’t Sell: It’s Electric

robaroni said: A couple of things - I'm wondering if dealers are forced to take cars in from the manufacturer that they wouldn't normally stock. The dealer I drove the LEAF from had no idea what he was selling, neither did the salesman. That probably depends on the manufacturer, I don't think Nissan...

Re: A Car Dealers Won’t Sell: It’s Electric

FWIW: I drive a 2016 Nissan Leaf and had a 2013 for 2 years before, so I have a little bit of experience. My Nissan dealer is in no hurry to sell Leafs, has probably moved fewer than 40 since December of 2010, when the car was introduced. Other close-by dealers are no better. Here's an interesting t...
