Re: Moving on, but loved my Bolt

Yup. I didn't notice. The price I posted was "potential savings" (the default) and not "purchase price" ($38500). Sneaky bastards.

Re: Moving on, but loved my Bolt

I went to the tesla.com web site, and clicked "order now". That was the price that popped up. It might be because I live in CA and maybe there is a discount / rebate from the state that is automatically applied.

At any rate, FAR from the $65k someone stated.

Re: VINDICATED: Finally - GM to launch updated vehicle navigation system

I can buy a new phone for less than the GPS option cost in most new cars, AND get free map updates on the phone. Why would I want to buy GPS software for the car when my phone can send map info to the display screen in the car? It is the 21st century.

Re: Moving on, but loved my Bolt

Please let us know the financial details of your Tesla 3 purchase, and how much was "stripped down" from its $65K model to make it financially satisfactory to you. He did say "Tesla Model 3", not "model S". I just checked, and the "standard range plus" model ...

Re: My experience with the Grizzl-e EVSE that we bought

I seems to recall that several years ago Enel bought the very small eMotorWerks, (maker of JuiceBox). The experience might not be the same these days, since a multi-national and a small local business just don't run the same way.

Re: First successful charge for new 2020 Bolt Please read

I would say that is true for most charging networks - use their app. While with EA it is almost required (their CC kiosk issues are notorious), it is useful to have the app for ChargePoint and EVgo (for example). At a minimum you can see which fast chargers are in use and which are available for you.

Re: Should i be concerned with battery degradation?

Using nitrogen is a gimmick. Yes, it leaks out slightly more slowly, but if you check your tires once every 2-3 months, why pay $30-$50 for it? Air is already almost 80% nitrogen.
