  1. Switching out the 2014 chevy volts radio system for something nicer?

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I'm in the market for a cheap plug in hybrid. Right now its between the 2014 Ford Fusion Energi and the 2014 chevy volt. I know that the chevy volt is more efficient and a little cheaper but I just can't get over the center console/radio system. I know this may be an unpopular opinion but its...
  2. Center Console and Steering Wheel Accents Color Change?

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I have a 2013 Base model Volt with ceramic white center console cover and steering wheel accents with jet black cloth seats. Is it possible to change to a more subdued look by replacing both with the dark accent pieces used with jet black leather seats that year? If it is possible, any idea...

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    I bought me 2013 Volt on April 20th. It has been in the shop for more than 10 days on 5 different occasions with the exact same problem and to date no solution. Each time they have updated the software, rebooted the system and each time I have had to re-enter all my saved data. I depend...
  5. How Often Do You See This Screen?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Every now and again, when I start up my Volt I see the following screen on the center console. I think I've seen it three times in the five months I've had my car. How random is it? Or is it random at all? :confused: I'm not complaining because in my Lexus, you have to "agree" to their...
  6. Center Screen/Console Frozen

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    I have a 2013 Volt and my center console screen froze today at start up. I was not able to adjust the audio/change the station. Clock was frozen. Power button for stereo did not work. I think it may have something to do with the fact that I was plugging my IPAD in as I turned the car power...
  7. Can you get the dark gray center console on a base (no option) Volt ?

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I'm considering leasing a "base model" Volt with no options on it. I prefer the dark gray center console compared to the white center console. All of the dark gray center console Volts I've seen appear to have a "leather trim package" on them. Can you get a base model Volt (with no options)...

    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...
  9. Center Console Redesign

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    "Just a little bit of restraint would have gone a long way in making the Volt’s infotainment system more intuitive. As proof, I’ve created a better solution in five minutes with Photoshop." I have no personal experience (yet), but...
