Re: Shifter starting to have problems

I'm surprised to see the shifter is a mechanical linkage from the shift lever to the motor area. I would have thought it would be electrical / fly by wire / CAN

I've now lost my 'B` mode and the other drive modes are not always where the shift lever ways they are.

Re: Shifter starting to have problems

Thanks.

I've never looked in that area. I'll have to open it up and see what can be done.

A very rare piece of glass

Apparently there is only one of these in North America and it's on its way to me from Mitsubishi. :?

Shifter starting to have problems

I've seen others have had this problem, but my shifter is starting cause problems. It no longer shifts as smooth as it used to, it won't always display the correct position. I have to shift to B twice to get it to take. Not always going into P when it should, which causes the charger not to start, a...

Re: Need a longer range ev

A local dealer has a 2013 Volt with 75k miles for $10,300. My co-worker has a relative that works there so I'm going to see if there is any friends of family discounts ;) I made the mistake of buying the MIEV without the remote FOB. Other than the car key fobs, is there any extra pieces I need to ma...

Re: Need a longer range ev

I'm leaning Bolt. May end up going Volt unless I can get a decent deal on a Bolt. I just bought a neat little cedar challet that will be my retirement place. That's why the need for 100 mile range. Once I recover financially from the closing I will make a decision on the car. Maybe end of year if th...

Re: Need a longer range ev

Just checked, it's an LT trim. $34,755 msrp, sale price $28,688 with employee discount and $1500 for existing lease. The only options are comfort package and interior protection package

I need to learn more about the model options. But that looks Iike a very good price.

Re: Need a longer range ev

Sounds like a newer Volt is my best bet. There is a 2018 at a local dealer for just over $30K. That's for employee discount with a current lease. I can get employee discount through my brother in law but don't have a gm lease. Not sure the trim level for that either. But with the federal rebate it w...

Re: Need a longer range ev

Thanks for the responses. I think I can rule out the I3 based on the heater setup. The only public charge stations on my 100 mile route are within 30 miles of my house. So I would need to go end to end without charging. A decent hybrid would be fine for the long trip as long as I can go 30+ mile on ...
