Re: miles added with DCQC

So it looks like your Bolt must be less than 20% charged to get the advertised "90 miles in 30 minutes". That makes sense, given the taper profile. That's true, but I thought it was interesting that charging for a half hour anywhere from between 40% and 60% results in roughly 200 miles of...

Re: miles added with DCQC

Very informative. Most interesting is that the "sweet spot" for a half hour of DCFC is 40-60% of charge remaining. Anywhere in that range gets you back to right around 200 miles.

Re: CARB Rebate Processing

I'm pretty sure you can simply upload that document again. You might want to do that since you are likely to be asked to do it eventually. The income verification process is a bit mysterious. They don't ask for a 1040 which would be the obvious way of screening for eligibility. If you are selected (...

CARB Rebate Processing

I uploaded my documents on January 3, but didn't notice the separate submit button, so the application sat for a couple of weeks. I fixed that when they notified me of the "incomplete" application on January 17. They say applications not selected for income verification are processed withi...

I've seen this condition a couple of times. It seemed to reset on its own, eventually.

Re: Bolt self started/moved, and backed into garage wall/cabinet

Does it have an "electrinic" parking pawl? My gut says yes. But it may not. If not, it makes the accident described in the original post 1000 times more likely. Yes, it seems to have one. If you set the parking brake with your foot on the brake pedal you feel it go down, and you can hear ...

Re: Bolt self started/moved, and backed into garage wall/cabinet

The problem is wireless / keyless starting and running. If the physical key were needed like the good old days this wouldnt be an issue. Why is turning a key then taking it out with you when you leave such an inconvienence that we have done away with this safety feature? I suspect there's no going ...

Re: Dammit! Is my Bolt a lemon?!

This is the early adopter's lament with any new tech product. You have to know from the outset that you are volunteering to be a beta tester and hope that the company will be anxious to make things right with the product, and to treat you right along the way. Never having dealt with GM before that's...

Re: Dammit! Is my Bolt a lemon?!

GM should be all over early adopter problems like this, if only because they can't afford bad press, and they should be anxious to discover quickly whether they have any engineering problems. Please let us know how they treat you.
