Re: RECALL

I'd sure to see a buyback. I can't park farther than about 13 feet from a structure on my property, and the house is right on the street. The nearest EV certified Chevrolet dealer in the US is 260 miles away. Car was bought in North Carolina, then I moved to far northern Maine. Probably a nearby dea...

Re: RECALL

Apologies if this has been discussed already. Might it be possible that the battery temperature sensor module fails in a way that always indicates that the battery is too cold? This would turn the battery heater on, and leave it on no matter how hot the battery got. Could this induce thermal runaway?

Could it be a matter of fabric tension varying due to clip placement? It'd be good if it was just a matter of removing, retensioning, and replacing the clips...

Re: Air Conditioner Test Drive at 98F

A/C much to my surprise takes only 1 kw on high setting. That would account for one aspect of our test drive a couple of weeks ago. The temperature was in the upper 90s and it seemed a long time before the air from the vents was noticeably cooler. Our LEAF cooled off much more quickly than that... ...

Re: 2017 Nissan Leaf Hits Back At Chevrolet Bolt

FWIW Bill Nye has addressed this problem in his garage by installing two vents - a low one to let cooler air in and a high one to let hotter air out. Details in his book "Unstoppable", or I'm sure elsewhere...

Re: Bumpy Ride - Stiff Suspension

Re: Chevrolet certified service mailer refers to oil changes

I got those for my LEAF too. At least they didn't offer to drain and refill the electrons in the HV battery...
