Better seats for 2019

Tue Aug 28, 2018 4:55 pm

This story sounds reliable: http://gmauthority.com/blog/2018/08/2019-chevrolet-bolt-ev-on-deck-for-better-seats-improved-suspension/
Also, the 2018 seats a tried a few weeks ago seemed like a big improvement from the early 2017 seats I had tried. Hope to buy a Bolt soon. This gives me more incentive to wait for the 2019s.

Not only seats, also that over-tightened suspension.
About time, Chevy!

This information has been corrected by GM. 1) No change in suspension. 2) Seats were improved for 2018 model. No changes in seats for 2019 model.

Now that I have my 2019 Bolt LT, I'm very happy with the seats and suspension. The seats are at least as good as my LEAF and the suspension is a big improvement. I always found the LEAF suspension to be the worst part of the car. I never had a big problem with the light steering on the LEAF but I have to admit the heavier Bolt steering is better. After driving a 10-bar LEAF, the Bolt range seems infinite :lol:

I second your comments aout the 2019 Bolt.
The seats are totally fine, the suspension is very well tuned with minimal body roll in tight curves and the steering calibration sets the bar for precise direction. I used to love the Subaru heavy steering (on many models I owned) but the Bolt's direction tightness is something.

I'm surprisingly pleased with this car.
