Seats are terrible. Model 3 has power seats (not sure if it's standard or an option but they offer them) and the Bolt seats are extremely uncomfortable.

Lack of equipment I'd consider standard for any modern car in this price range:

Telescoping visors
Integrated garage door opener


Roomy for size
Good acceleration and handling
Infotainment system - screen size is awesome

8.5 to 9 .. I really like Android Auto navigation but it would be nice to have some mapping native in the car when I'm not targeting a destination. ..
(loaded via a Micro SD card like my 2015 KIA Soul EV had) ..

The seats are adequate for me but could be improved.

Other than the above points I would say the Bolt is one of the best cars I've ever driven.

I'm going with an 8. The Bolt has me completely satisfied in every aspect except the front seats. I'm under six feet tall, not overweight, but still find the seats almost pinch me into position in the absolute center of the seat. Besides the seats, it is much quicker than most people expect, handles competently and has more features than I really want. I would prefer a more basic car, so the lack of power seats doesn't bother me.

IMHO, it is a failing that GM is very used to. Our 1990 Buick Century coupe {bought new, still have it} has extra soft, no back support seats that were great for around town, very short drives. 45 minutes in and your back is screaming for relief. The Chevy Colorado came out to replace the S10 and my boss bought 5 of them for company fleet trucks. Flat seat bottoms and straight backrests made them much less comfortable than the outgoing S10. GM still "cheaps out" on seats when they bring a new vehicle to the market. Clearly, they know how to do it right and I've never understood why they repeat this behaviour so often.

Just got my Bolt Premier 2 weeks ago. What a car. I'm 65 and have owned a few nice cars in my time..... 240 Z, Firebird, GTI and a host of family haulers. Have to say the Bolt EV beats them all. With regen braking and all that torque this car is just plain fun to drive. The technology and the Bose sound system are also great. Once you by an EV you probably wont want to go back to gas. 9 out of 10 for what you pay.
