Re: Aftermarket DC fast charge options

Lack of an DCFC and not affirmatively explaining its absence is criminal!

I did a ton of looking before buying and I never saw anything about his being just an option, so I'm not surprised to see others have this same experience. I was in the unfortunate circumstance to be sitting at a DCFC station trying to get enough juice to comfortably make it home the other day and couldn't figure out what was going on with the connections. It legitimately took me an hour at home that night to figure out what was happening and I'm not exactly challenged when it comes to technology or research. Fortunately I bought through Carvana, so I'll be calling them tomorrow to give them an earful about this and the missing blind spot monitoring, rear seat vents/controls, and power seats. I know that those last two aren't even options on the 2017 Bolt, but I didn't know it at the time of purchase and they advertised it as such. Hopefully I'll at least be able to snag one with DCFC and Blind spot monitoring as those are the only negatives I've found with this car in the last few days. Pretty big bummer right now.
If you can't get pics of the inlet but have pics of under the hood, https://www.chevybolt.org/threads/how-t ... ost-577370 can tell you if the car has DC FC inlet or not vs https://www.chevybolt.org/threads/how-t ... ost-577362 that you discovered the hard way.
