Re: Forum Etiquette and Member Behavior THANK YOU

Yep. I'm done with the MyBolt forum. Can't get answers because everyone keeps arguing and mis-interpreting what others post.

We are a unique group 8-) .

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

I'm also pleased to share that the Bolt does not cause much, if any, driver fatigue. We went on a 170 mile drive yesterday, only getting out of the car once to try a quick charger and use the restroom, and it felt like we only went a few miles. Cruising the highway at 65-70 MPH with the A/C on doesn...

Re: Any I Witnesses?

I spotted a 3rd white i-MiEV in Cranberry yesterday while on a drive in the Bolt.

Together with a Black SE I spotted a couple months ago, this makes 5 other i-MiEVs that I know of in the Pittsburgh area.

3 white
1 white/blue
1 black

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

I'm going back through this forum and trying to tally up wishlist and some standard items for the I-MiEV to compare to the Bolt. Here's what I have so far (forum members with Dropbox accounts can add to it as well): https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/Bolt-and-I-MiEV-Comparison-k5eW5c2y2eTKula6yORxp A bla...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

I got my Eaton charging station wired for Bolt charging. 6/3 copper on a 50 amp breaker to handle that 7.2 kW charger. It fits nicely between the man door and garage door so it can reach the port on the front left fender. It's nice to see the battery still charging while pre-conditioning. Speaking o...

Re: A/C Issue.

:o Forget that! I'd DIY something for $10 first. I agree, though. For cars with quick charging, I'd consider the A/C part of the powertrain as it is necessary for quick charging. For that matter, I'd be tempted to cover the whole HVAC system under the 5 year warranty if it has the ductwork to the ba...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

Thanks. That's what this thread is for, to lay it all out. The thing that's exciting about having a big battery isn't that I'm getting 200+ miles on a charge, it's that I'm doing so much better than the EPA rating, which seems to be pretty common with the Bolt. The only thing I can figure is they dr...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

Right off the bat, you'll need the optional false cargo floor to get anywhere near a flat cargo floor. Although it is a window sticker option, it can be added later (just need to make sure you get the brackets). The rear seats lay at about a 10 degree angle. The cavity is about the same depth and wi...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

Sticker was $40,225. They got me supplier pricing and credited me the cost of the extra level 1 cord which I have no use for. All said, the Bolt cost me about $39,000 out the door with taxes, fees, and extended warranty. Then we get home and find a paper in the mail from GM that knocks and additiona...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

I decided to purchase a new Chevy Bolt. It is an LT with quick charge, comfort and convenience package, and confidence package in Orange Burst Metallic. I left the dealer with a full charge and 236 miles on the dash (regarding range, unless I specify otherwise, I'll use the median number, since the ...
