  1. Click / Thunk Noise on Accelerating or Stopping?

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Hi there, I just bought a higher mileage 2012 Volt and have noticed a problem I am concerned about -- when accelerating from a dead stop, there is a noticeable click or thunk noise from under the hood. Like a metallic, suspension or drivetrain type noise. You can really hear it with the...
  2. Volt needs a Snow / Low Traction Drive mode for predictable braking

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
