  1. 2016 Blaring Car Alarm: Delayed Charge Interrupted?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Similar to some who have issues with blaring car alarms (and why oh why do these happen in middle of the night?) last night, my car alarm went blaring at 11pm. I clicked the alarm off and unlocked my doors for the remainder of the night. This morning when I got into my car, there was an...

  3. How much does mileage matter?

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    I'm in the market for a 2016 volt but dealer is trying to convince me I would be fine with an LT w/ comfort package. But I think things like driver confidence are well worth it since I am in lots of traffic and drive a lot. I moved on to Carvana and saw two with the options I wanted. A 56k mile...
  4. USB ports. Why so under powered? 0.5A output in 2016???

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I was reading on another site that the USB ports in the gen 2 volt only put out about 0.5A and I tend to agree. When I am talking on the phone with it plugged in I gain about 1 or 2% charge in 30 mins. When I am using google maps it actually loses power. Why would Chevrolet bother putting in...

    Gen2 Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Is this: 2016 Volt Reflective Window Shades Rear Window Sun Shade A mesh shade or a silvered sun shade? In other words, can I leave it in the window permanently or does it block the view for my kids? In the picture, it looks like a mesh shade, but it's described as being "reflective".

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Was cleaning up the garage last night, and something about the cars sitting together caught my eye. Here's my garage - barely 2 bays, but have done everything I can to maximize space. Show me where your volt rests at night!
  9. Crazy lock problem

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I'm hoping someone can help me because I'm confounded by my Gen II 2016. I'm a surfer, so to lock my car, I use the blade (physical) key to lock the car so I can take it with me in the water. I leave the RKE in the car, remove the cover to the cylinder lock, and lock with the blade key. All...
  10. Slow or Fast / Brisk acceleration for Longer EV range?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I have a 2016 Volt and have been reading a little bit on techniques to extend EV range. The question I have is on acceleration. Should we reach our top speed accelerating as slow as possible, Fast as possible, or somewhere in between? I had always assumed slow acceleration from a stop. One...

  17. 🚗 2016 Roof Indentation 🔨

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Something that I was unaware of since most of the photos don't really show this... the roof of the 2016 Volt has this indentation with curved ridges. I took this picture last weekend at the O.C. International Auto Show, where Chevy had two 2016 Volts. A black one and a white one.
  18. 2016 Volt - lease vs. purchase?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    What is the prevailing opinion on lease vs. purchase? Both dealers I went to both strongly advised lease only for a hybrid car due to resale value loss due to rapid technology changes. What are you other Volt buyers doing? I'm hoping to get my 2016 Volt next week and need to decide quickly on...

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    CTV News in Ottawa, Canada, did a short story on today's connected cars this past Monday on the morning show, and used a live 2016 Volt for the story. No driving, and barely any shots inside, but still mildly interesting. Looks like a Premium, given the...
