Re: Winter performance?

Haha, thank you. You really made me smile, no, laugh out loud. I see other cars (like Kia and Hyundai) using more efficient heat pumps in their electric cars. Wish Chevy had done the same. Still, I'm hoping the Bolt does a bit better than the Spark. I'll still probably get the Bolt, regardless, and ...

Winter performance?

I'm seriously thinking about getting a Bolt. I live in New York. Can anyone give me an idea about what I might expect for a drop in range over the winter? I just bought a Spark EV last year, and while I was expecting a winter drop, I was a bit surprised at how severe the drop has been. If I use the ...

Re: free Sirius XM

You know, I don't think I will ever buy Sirius XM radio. Here's what happened to me. I bought a used 2015 Spark EV with XM radio, March of 2021. Just for fun, turned on the XM. Nothing. just the demo channel. Tried again after a few weeks. Nothing. Again after a few weeks. Nothing. At the end of the...

Re: Really want a Bolt - Tell me about yours

Since the 2019 allows me to limit my charge up to 93% (the 2017 model would drop back to below 90%), I use that feature so that I will have one-pedal driving (regenerative braking) right from the start, which is not the case when I charged up to 100%. I found with full time driving the one-pedal fe...

Re: Really want a Bolt - Tell me about yours

Wow, thanks everyone. A few more things: How is the performance, handling, acceleration? I've read mixed reviews. some quite good, others, just so so. I've seen the same thing with my Spark, some good reviews, others, tentative. I find my Spark an absolute blast. 0 - 60 like an older, entry level sp...

Re: Really want a Bolt - Tell me about yours

Do you ever use the lane assist? Does it work well? Does it allow you to take your hands off the wheel? I rented a Hyundai Sonata, and the combination of lane assist and adaptive cruise control really did "auto-drive". Well, sort of. It wasn't very reliable. With good lane markings and the...

Re: Really want a Bolt - Tell me about yours

The Bolt is a great car for the money. The electronics are great, better than Tesla IMO. Some people don't like the seats but I didn't have a problem. To me, suspension seems a little stiff. It's a great commuter car. It's a capable road trip car, but fast charging is not all that fast compared to ...

Really want a Bolt - Tell me about yours

Hi All, not a Bolt owner but hope to be soon. About 7 months ago, I bought a 2015 Spark EV for my son. Now I'm hooked. The systems are just amazing. The efficiency is just amazing. The driving dynamics are just amazing. It's a pocket rocket. For myself, I need a car with greater range and the Bolt s...
