  1. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I have had the car for about a month and just a couple of days the center stack is making a kinda of a fan sound like something you would hear when a computer is on. It is always making the sound even when its turned off and when im driving.

    I have a 2013 with the engine assisted heating. I have two options: turning the assisted heat on when the outside is cold or very cold. Which one should I use to maximize efficiency in the Chicagoland area? Also, when the car is charged they say to keep it plugged in..is that necessary and is...

    The 2013 Volt comes with an EVSE that defaults to 8 amps which takes about 15 hours to charge. The user has a choice of selecting 12 amps to charge in 8-10 hours. Unfortunately the user is required to select 12 amps again after each drive or the car defaults back to 8 amps. Do you think that...

    Came back to my Volt after shopping at Bella Terra in Huntington Beach and was glad to see an older "brother" next to me, getting a charge.
  6. Mechanical Systems - Chevy Volt
    2013 Volt appx 3300 miles on the car. Two days ago while on the highway I started to notice a feeling of resistance when trying to make small adjustments at highway speed. Its become rather annoying as I'll apply more pressure to make the adjustment only to have less reistance and cause an over...
  7. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    The question is whether or not I should charge every time I get home. Here is the situation. This week I have been shuttling the kids to and from school total round trip of about 1.5 miles. So when I get home I just plug in to "top off". But I recall that for the cell phones or laptops that...
  8. Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    I'm completely ready to get one of these cars, probably via a lease. I filled out a "contact me" form via edmunds.com and have 6 Arizona dealers (salespeople, managers, etc.) calling and emailing constantly. I gave out both my email and cell phone number and basically asked for and received...

    Hi everyone. I just picked up a new 2013 a couple days ago. I just found this site and this is my first post. I'm looking forward to reading every single post on this forum :D My gps nav map spins and is basically useless because of it. It spins whether a destination is entered or not...
  10. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    After posting a screenshot of my 2013 Volt yesterday, I discovered that many folks didn't know of the new screen & DIC widgets (Power Gauge, FCA, LDW, etc). So after a brief discussion on the Forward Collision Alert system in that previous message, I wanted to show what it looks like and...
  11. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    :D In this morning's Orange Co. Register (Southern California) newspaper, Premier Chevrolet in Buena Park had plenty of 2013 Volts for lease at $199/month. There is also a deal for a 2012 Volt. With gasoline prices going nuts in this area, these Volts may not last very long! See photo of the...
  12. Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Hi all, we got a new 2013 Volt yesterday (Friday). So far only 10 miles of driving with it. Did have a problem last night. I tried to use the voice recognition system and after saying a command it would do nothing for thirty seconds and then reboot. Tried about twenty times, same result...

    If you are a 2013 Volt owner, be sure to assign yourself to the "2013 Model Year Volts" group that I created on the Volt Stats website. This way, you can compare your 2013 Volt to other 2013 Volts around the country (as well as with all the other Volts, regardless of year). Not yet a member of...

  15. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Thought I'd share a pic of the center console controls on the 2013 with nav from my owners manual: Comparing it to the owners manual from the 2012: 1. Top row is the same 2. Fav button is replaced with Phone on 2013 3. Tone button is replaced with Info on 2013 4. Radio/Band is replaced with...

    It says unless you manually program the car "each" time you charge and choose the 12 amp 10 hour charge option. Is this true? http://insideevs.com/2013-chevrolet-volt-specs-revealed-more-range-hold-mode-and-slower-charging-2/ MrEnergyCzar

    Does anyone have a good idea about why the leather seats are being changed from perforated to non-perforated for 2013? I'm no expert, but info online suggests that perforated seats are found more in luxury vehicles, and the intent is to improve ventilation, which keeps the seat cooler in the...
