Re: Really want a Bolt - Tell me about yours

Never used lane assist or adaptive cruise...not even sure the car has it. The Bolt has two drive modes, "D" and "L". To me, regen for D is practically non existent, but L is aggressive. There's also a regen paddle behind the left of the steering wheel that when pulled, makes rege...

Re: Really want a Bolt - Tell me about yours

'19LT with confidence 1 and II packages. DCFC also. Stiff suspension means you feel the bumps in the road...kinda like a harsh ride but not mushy like a 20 year old pickup with blown shocks. It's not all that bad but it's not a plush ride, at least to me. Hope this helps. Edit: Tesla does not offer ...

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 t...

Re: Spare Tire Kit and Other Accessories to Recc

I think Chevy Cruze wheels fit? You should check
Personally I don't want to put slime in my tire---it gets on the wheel and makes it hard to balance.
I carry a tire plug kit and an small portable air compressor, and a pair of pliers.

Re: How Much I Paid for My Bolt

How long the battery fix takes depends on your place in line. The '19 models that were made in the last half of '18 are more suspect than the others and are being fixed first. I think Chevy wants to get this over with as soon as possible, so maybe 6-9 months for the rest of them? Just a guess.

Re: Melted 240 outlet

The pictures aren't showing but from your description, I'd say the total current available is 35 amps. So to meet code, you shouldn't use more than 80% of that, or 28 amps for your charger

Re: Melted 240 outlet

35 amp breaker? Code says to only use 80% of breaker amps for continuous use (like charging). So your max current should be 28 amps. If the outlet worked ok for 10 months but recently caught fire, sounds like a connection worked loose. That can happen as wires heat and cool, expand and contract, and...
