  3. Battery Degradation - Advisor Not Responding

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    In mid September, before it started to get colder in Toronto, the battery in my 2013 Volt lost about 25% of its capacity virtually overnight and it has never come back. I have not contacted my Volt advisor for almost four years, so perhaps he is no longer doing this work. The email I sent him...

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Hello Everyone, So I took a small roadtrip to mexico. It was in the middle of the night in the highway at over 60mph. There were no signs for a bump. There was a bump and a very big one (big enough to scrape air dam at low speeds). It was too late when I saw it so I didnt even break. The car...

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt

  8. DIY Repair after Total Loss?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hello, I recently totaled my 2013 Volt (not my fault). Most of the damage is up front, and it doesn't appear to be too deep - radiators will need to be replaced, etc. Charger module got scuffed, but it's probably fine. Steering wheel and knee airbags deployed. It looks like most of the...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    So I just changed the engine oil in my 2013 Volt and noticed that this threaded plug looking thing was not fully seated and looking very peculiar. I don't think this is right. Can someone verify this is the transmission drain plug and that it's supposed to be seated or is this a feature I...

  17. 2013 Nav not accepting input

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Has this happened to anyone else here? I've searched the forums and couldn't find a post related to it. In my 2013, every so often the nav will stop accepting input. For instance, yesterday, I started driving, pressed Destination, Points of Interest. Then I stopped the car, put it in park...
