Re: Amazing low cost to run an EV

<below is not meant as an argument, just an illustration of different ways of looking at the same numbers> That's also correct, but due to the sequence of events and the decision making process we went through, we decided to invest in the Solar panels understanding they would provide an 18% return o...

Re: Amazing low cost to run an EV

So you're the guy who's always sitting in his car charging free at Whole Foods! I'm actually in the opposite position. I have Solar at home and built in a little bit of excess when we installed it to cover my future electric car. I charge at home 99% of the time, and its free, my electric bill is st...

Re: has anyone found success with TOU (time-of-use) rates at home?

" So I understand this correctly, your Solar isn't pointed optimally - but regardless, will still pay for itself in about 5 1/2 years. If you have a moment, please run us through your math." Sorry, have not revisited the thread and missed your question till now. My system cost me $26000 as...

Re: Infotainment Software 14.1.0 to 14.4.2

I'd be happy to do the update myself, but google isn't helping me. I googled Bolt V14.4.2 download, added FAT32, and some other variations and I'm not finding anything. Can someone point me toward the page or thread I need to find the download, etc?

Re: Is Chevy investigating seat complaints?

It would be absurd if they did not update the part. The most basic problems of the seat are based around a really cheap and poorly specified single piece molded foam seat pad. It costs GM less than $5. By changing the spec on the foam stiffness, perhaps the thickness, etc the foam pad could easily b...

Re: What? No Garage Door Opener?

Some of the choices Chevrolet has made have honestly been a little questionable. The terrible sun visors for example. Ugly and not overly functional. Same for their failure to include Homelink. Why are they trying to wring an extra $12 in profit out of each sale? Obviously you can keep a garage door...

Re: Single Pedal Driving safety question

I doubt Chevy will reply, too much liability setting a precedent in writing for how the car should automatically react. The marketing department can push legal to approve text when they are trying to sell a car, but post customer support will not be important enough to Chevy to let them commit to an...

Re: Single Pedal Driving safety question

I'd like to see Chevy on the record here...

As of last week they seemed to be monitoring this board again, so let's see what they say officially.

Single Pedal Driving safety question

When driving in Low, with the seatbelt engaged of course, the car will come to a full stop without the use of the brake pedal. Many of us drive this way. My question is how the car will react if we are rear ended, in low, with our foot off the brake? How will the electric drive motors, parking brake...
