Re: Good "online" place to buy used Bolt

I'm not sure the US charging ports are compatible with Euro plugs. And then there's the import taxes, etc. It's generally not recommended to import an EV from the US to Europe.

Re: Bolt doesn't acknowledge when fully charged

I dunno. Could be that the 12V is charging which means it's (slowly) depleting the main battery, so the main battery keeps charging. Or maybe something else. 1kW is a slow charge rate and parasitic losses could eat that up. Will it finally get to 95% and stop? I'd try a L2 charger and see what happe...

Re: Sierra Nevada East Side Open More DCFC Stations on US 395

Of course this is good news. I sometimes travel the 395 corridor and new chargers are welcome. It seems that people traveling to national parks use that corridor. Kinda reminds me of Rivian who's putting DCFC in remote areas so people can experience the outdoors in their new Rivian trucks. But alas,...

I'm wasn't aware of problems with Ford Focus elec. I did a quick search and see that they had some issues with the pinion shaft. Did they have other issues ?

Re: RECALL

Lemon Laws have nothing to do with the Buy-Backs. A Lemon Law needs to have a bunch of repair attempts with no solution. That's not happening here. ..... When a Bolt is on fire, it simply gets replaced under warranty, & any other burned structures handled by GM in a settlement. Only 5 (1 in 10,...

Re: Just bought a new 2021 Bolt and the AC doesn't work

I don't think your problem is auto defog, but in general you should set it to "off". It's buried in the settings somewhere and will cause your heat or A/C to come on when you least expect it if you leave it in the on position.

Re: Measured battery capacity 63.2 kWh

Good test and write up, thanks. Yes it's helpful. And you get extra points for using the term "ESR" which I haven't seen when referring to batteries but it's appropriate and helps my understanding. thanks
