Re: Cargo Area Light - 2020 Bolt

Ya know what else isn't rocket science? Parking the Bolt in the garage, and at night opening the liftgate and then looking into the garage every 10 minutes to see if the light has gone out. If you *really* want to know exactly how long, then do it twice and the 2nd time go sit in the garage the 10 m...

Re: So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

I'll have ended up paying $17,000 in "rent" , oh plus the $2500 I put down, and my residual is $25K, which adds up to MSRP, like magic! So where the fuck did my $7500 federal rebate go?!?!?!??!? Oh that's right, The lease company ate it, which is what they do. . That is the way leases ARE...

Re: charging cable for sale

Good luck getting $350.

Anyone can buy a 120V/240V (both), 16 amp charging cable for about $200, which will charge faster than the one shipped with the Bolt.

Re: Safety issues

From a general safety standpoint you should have your brake covered when stopped anyhow. Obviously, this will turn the lights on. Why? I enjoy the habit of "one foot driving" that I have developed with my Bolt EV (so much so that I have to remember to train myself the opposite way when no...

Yeah, buy a used Bolt. Hasn't somebody already talked about that? Isn't there a thread for that?

Oh, yeah, THIS one!

Re: EVgo DC FC pricing changes coming Feb 12, 2019

I am very aggravated by EA's connection fee, and I don't understand why we should pay a buck just for the privilege of plugging the car in. OK, I'll explain it to you: Credit card fee . Credit Card companies charge businesses for "the privilege" of accepting client payment using their net...

Re: Help me understand how regen works

If I remember my high school physics from a few years ago, the generation of electricity when "running a motor backwards" is the opposite of "running the motor forwards". By that, I mean that to accelerate (increase torque) using the motor one increases the current flowing in the...
