Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

We just got our Bolt EV about 2 weeks ago. In general, it is wonderful. Two EV-centric niggles: no light in the charging port, and no coasting in D. We are a tall family, and we fit in the Bolt EV better than any other car (let alone any other EV!), so there's that. It is the longest range EV that w...

Re: Used 12 SE Premium or Used 14?

You can add a backup camera for reasonable money - the camera is powered up when the backup lights come on, and some are wirelessly connected to the monitor.

Re: Nissan Leaf

You may well be right.

The thing we know for sure is, the bug eyed headlights are no more.

Re: Rear windshield wiper removal

Right - I got a Trico 'Exact Fit' 12-B replacement wiper for a bit less than $16, at Advanced Auto Parts. If you lift the arm away from the window, then pull the bottom out away from the arm. There are dentented slots on the sides, which resist a bit, and then it pivots about 45 degrees. Then you sl...

Re: Chevy Bolt production version

unfortunately the shape and size gives the Bolt about the same Cd as our iMiev, around 0.3x or so. If GM put the same hardware into a Volt body and gives it a heatpump heater, it'll be a winner. The lower Volt's Cd, around 0.2x i think, probably can push the range north of 260-mile on the highway. ...
