Re: DCFC Solenoid Activation

I don't think that the warranty is over.

the charging socket is part of the "charging system", and should have an 8-year, 100K-mile warranty, not the 36-month warranty for everything else.

Re: DCFC Solenoid Activation

Bring it to a dealer ASAP - it should be covered under warranty (since it is a 2019, hopefully you bought it after May 2019).

At any rate, it seems that the charging socket is part of the "charging system", and should have an 8-year, 100K-mile warranty.

Re: Buyback Process

I seems that the closer they get to a "real" fix, the more denials are issued.

Re: Chevrolet/GM update on new battery software package

Am I mssing something? Is this any different than simply setting "Hilltop reserve" (for older Bolts) or setting max SoC to 80% on newer Bolts?

Well, I *suppose* that it does have some diagnostic features that will warn if it detects bad cell(s) ...

Re: EVgo aren't so bad anymore. In fact they are now one of the least expensive

ChargePoint aren't much better along that route. A little, as you can get to Blythe (a dual unit install east of Palm Desert and a dual unit site in Blythe) but you can't get from Blythe to Phoenix just on ChargePoint. They also should install a 3-4 unit site near New Hope. (Or maybe near the juncti...

Re: EVgo aren't so bad anymore. In fact they are now one of the least expensive

I just looked at the map of EVgo fast charging installations in the Western US. Bizarrely, there are zero in OR and almost none in NV or AZ. 12 or so in Las Vegas, 5 or so around Reno -Carson city, just 8 in Phoenix, 2 in Tucson, and 1 about halfway between those two cities. Nothing east of Palm Des...

Yet, YOU, as Moderator, later changed this thread's title to the present name: "EVgo DC chargers were horrible up until the beginning of 2018..." Actually, no. OP changed the subject/title of the first post on the thread. When I noticed that, all I did was change the title on the (then) m...

EVgo was a subsidiary of NRG (cute name, 'energy'). They started as a subsidiary of a very large power (electric) company that was accused of market manipulations, price fixing and gauging during the ~2000 Calif energy scandal. They were going to be sued by the state, but they came to an out-of-cour...
