Re: How Much I Paid for My Bolt

At present, used Bolt prices are an anomaly in the marketplace. There are so few for sale in any given locale, chances of finding a steal deal are slim and none. Having said that, keep looking regionally; anything can be anywhere. Bottom line - if you can find the right deal and get in line for a ne...

Re: Texas Bolts

Yes, the Bolt is near perfect for 99.9% of daily vehicle use. The Bolt as a useful medium distance road trip vehicle depends upon the driver/passenger's ability to adapt and change. There are many Bolt owners who laud the every 150-200-mile stops to recharge as a benefit; a more relaxing mode of tra...

Re: Driving in L uses More Energy?

Yes, in a vehicle designed to accommodate that style of driving. No, it's not possible in a Bolt, but then it's very easy and intuitive "To driver perfectly in Low you must perfectly reflect your intention in the pressure you put on the accelerator." Maybe, accept that the methods OP sugge...

Re: The Chevy Bolt Requires Little Maintenance

2017 four years in and zero maintenance and zero trips to the dealer; the underhood is only lightly dusty. The brakes will last forever. We drive for weeks without ever using the friction brakes.

Re: WHEEL SPACERS?

FWIW, the Bolt is a very tight fit around the OEM tire/wheel. There is essentially no extra space for a wider wheel or a taller tire. Suggest before investing any money in spacers and/or custom wheels and/or other than OEM tire size, do a trial fit.

Re: No roof rack for the LT???!!???

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 t...

Re: What is the fate of the market for 2017-19 Bolt EVs?

Yes, No, Maybe. No one on a public forum has sufficient information to answer your question. There will be WAGs and lunatic fringe opinions and a few well-reasoned discussions, but it's unknowable at this juncture. Get back to us in a year with what you learned.

Re: RECALL

But overall I agree that GM needs to . . . . show the general public they're on our side, My experience over many years is corporations are never, ever "on our side." Short term profits and long-term survival are the only decision points which get serious discussion in high level meetings...

Re: Wheel Spacers

The Bolt front suspension and sheet metal is wrapped so tightly, fitting wider/taller tires and wheels is problematic. My recommendation is don't buy any spacer, wheel or tire for the Bolt unless the seller money-back-guarantees it will fit and not rub anything under any condition.

Re: How do you disengage the cruise control in single pedal L mode?

New owners cruising in L will soon develop the reflex of positioning the the foot on the accelerator pedal so as to avoid the rapid decel when either button or lever is activated.

Some only cruise in D or develop a three step process of shifting to D and then deactivating cruise.
