    Chevy Bolt EV Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs
    We had the Service Vehicle Soon icon pop up on the drivers' info center. Nothing seemed amiss, after checking a few things it turned out to be low windshield washer fluid, none was hitting the rear window.

    Chevy Bolt EV Charging
    OK, after Scott's 5,000 mile Tesla trip and Lagodaboy wandering all over CA in his Bolt, I decided to venture outside the Chicago metro area this weekend to attend a wedding in Cedar Rapids, IA area, a 460 some mile round trip. With no DC fast chargers along the route, I used some public L2...

    Chevy Bolt EV Accessories, Mods, Wheels & Tires
    Like I did with my Volt, I painted my Bolt EV calipers while they were new and shiny. I use an expoxy paint system from G2, bought on TireRack. They seem to have the best price. To paint the caliper, you have to take the...

    Bolt Owners Forum - Resources, Reviews & Photos
    I test drove a Bolt EV Premier at Community Chevrolet in Burbank, CA courtesy Oscar Gutierrez who was very helpful and knowledgeable about the car. Remarkably so. He has a Volt, so I think that helps. I can't comment on this dealer's pricing, but if you want to give them a try, I highly...
