I've been saving up for some time to buy an all electric vehicle, and had decided that the Bolt was the one. Went for a test drive a few days ago when Bolts arrived at my local dealership. All was a dream....until I sat down to discuss an order with the manager.
I was absolutely flummoxed to learn that you have to upgrade to the premier in order to have the option of getting cross bars installed. C'mon, Chevy, you've been advertising this car as an SUV. Why should a buyer have to spend an extra $5K to get cross bars on an SUV?
Of course I know at some point there will be after-market clamp on bars available somewhere, but I have a true aversion to those. I want to be able to purchase the not infrequent 2x4 and put it on the factory installed ergonomic roof rack that is custom made for the vehicle.
I've written and called Chevy about this. Maybe there are more of you out there that share my beef. If so, please let Chevy know you want the cross bar option on the LT. These marketing decisions are constantly remade by management, and if enough of us squawk, maybe they'll do the right thing for their entry level buyers.
