Re: Used 2017 Bolt with 115,000 miles-need advice

by the way, upon making appointments for our Bolts for the battery replacement, I asked the Service Manager about the 100,000 miles warranty. I was told that the recall is effective regardless of the mileage. So yeah, jump on whatever best deal out there before the replacement

Re: Changing cooling fluid.

In fact, the battery pack cooling system should have been drained, replaced, and purged as the coolant lines were disconnected in order to put in the new battery pack.

I believe the Bolt has 2 other coolant loops: the electric drive motor system and the cabin heating/cooling system

Re: Changing cooling fluid.

I think it's a total money grab. The one challenge with DIY coolant change is the procedure to purge all air bubbles. My plan is simply drain the reservoir, add new coolant, drive a few days; repeat a few more time. The idea is to slowly dilute the old coolant with newer coolant without ever introdu...

Re: Battery Degradation with high mile usage

I'm one of those "Tesla" user living at the supercharging stations. The Bolt's charging profile is really conservative, maxing at about 54kw and tapering to 24kw rather soon. That's less than the 1C of the 60kwh pack. My 2016 with 90kwh Tesla is now limited to 120kw max. I don't think it's...

Re: Used 2017 Bolt with 115,000 miles-need advice

So, here are my questions. The recall and software update. The car is obviously out of warranty due to the mileage. Is this something I really need to worry about? Am i in danger of spontaneously combusting into a fireball in front of Raymond James stadium? In Florida weather, what's the battery si...

Re: Electrify America EV Charging Payment SNAFU

Finally got the chance to use EA on I-5 in CA between SJ-LA. The over all system is improving, though there is room for improvement, mainly in operational reliability. Some observed problems: some stations put out only 15kw while the next one can go over 50kw, most touch screen exposed to hot sun ar...

Re: Installing a AC120V pure sine wave inverter.

Best to keep the big DC line short and run the higher voltage 120vac long. Also mind the max wattage and size the DC cable accordingly. Has any one found a way to keep the Bolt on for longer than 90-minute ?

Re: Really want a Bolt - Tell me about yours

we have a 2017 LT+DCFC and another 2017 Premier, also a 2016 Tesla 90D. The DCFC is a must in my opinion. One Bolt is approaching 90Kmiles and the other in the 80Kmiles. It's too bad there is no pre-owned Bolt for sale currently, awesome deals could be had. The Tesla is great for long distance trave...
