  1. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    The 2014-2015 Volts have a safety feature if the car was left on in Park that alerts the driver (a horn triple honk) when they may have accidentally left the car on, plus the car will automatically shut down after 150 minutes. A recall adds this safety feature to 2011-2013 Volts. It...
  2. Electrical Systems - Chevy Volt
    Because the Volt and other EV's have big batteries, a variety of questions arise about the safety of the occupants in regard to electric and magnetic fields, or their affect on implanted medical devices like pacemakers. The short answer is there seems to be little to be concerned about. As you...
  3. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Received a "Power Smart" report from ComEd ranking my home efficiency as being just better than average for a home my size, together with a bar chart showing my monthly use compared to a lower trend line for a highly efficient home. I used 2873 kWh more than the highly energy efficient reference...
  4. Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    This topic has been discussed and debated for years. Even within the past month there were some who doubted or remained unconvinced that the low Volt battery replacement cost we have seen advertised at around $3000 by online parts suppliers was real. This despite our own WOT saying it was real...
  5. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Ok in April I traded in my 2014 Chevy Volt for a 2014 BMWi3. Now that I have been driving it for a few months I have lost the "fever" for a new car. Well I wish I had my Volt back. Wehy..the i3 is a great EV but I have found a few faults I believe the Volt is far superior. First the...

    The Volt was stopped, and the brake lights did not stop it from being rear-ended. The Volt sacrificed itself and the driver was spared serious injury or death. http://www.torquenews.com/1/chevy-volt-owner-only-gets-minor-bruises-after-being-hit-mac-truck
  7. Wheels & Tires - Chevy Volt
    I have a complete set of 2015 wheels and tires. The dealership I purchased the Volt from already had an aftermarket set installed when I bought the car. I loved them, and they sent the original with the car as well. The tires have 3 miles on them...lol. Perfect condition, no scuffs or marks...
  8. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Starting MY 2014, GM added horn-based warning to the car when you exit the car with your key and close the driver's door (earlier years do nothing). I am getting conflicting information about the type and number of horn sounds being made in the above scenario. For those willing, I'm asking you...

    Like removing the rear seat headrests, it's easy to remove the wiper blades if you know how, a frustration if you don't. Removing the Wiper Blade - The Button To remove the blade on the drivers side, press the rectangular button on the top of the assembly. Slide the blade outwards until it...

    TPMS Reporting "--" psi Has your TPMS started randomly showing the tire warning light and showing "--" for one or more tire's pressure reading? It could be RFID signal interference. Do you have a 12V power supply plugged in to the power port? Or, it could be an issue with the Remote Door Lock...

    For those aggravated by the ICE running during short trips in the winter months, there are a few mods for preventing or delaying ERDTT. Note that employing some of these mods may or may not cause warranty issues if there is a problem later on. The location of the air temperature sensor that...

  16. Toyota
    Toyota accelerated plans to introduce its first hydrogen-powered car, saying it would begin selling the sedan in less than a year at a price of about $70,000. The Japanese government is spurring the development with subsidies, and Toyota is hoping that the US government will do the same for...
  17. Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    On occasion we read about a Volt owner being stranded or having other issues that require a tow or time in the shop. Sometimes low fluid levels are either the cause or a symptom. Either way, a quick 2 minute visual inspection of the fluid levels once a month is both good practice and could save...

    This morning the Harley-Davidson LiveWire electric motorcycle broke cover. Shades of the 2010 Chevy Volt road show, Harley will tour the LiveWire across the country to see if its customers are ready to go electric. It doesn’t sound like a “fighter jet landing on an aircraft carrier” as Harley...

    I have a Chevy Volt 2013 and I just added a Rhino cross bar roof rack. I get a 12" foot. Kayak and a kayak rack that seats on top of my roof rack. Because the kayak is long it is recommended to strap the front and the back of the kayak to the car. The car have no towing hooks. Any suggestion of...

    For those who want to carry a spare tire on long trips in case they get an unfixable flat, or who simply don't want to wait for a tow truck, here's an idea for mounting the spare to the cargo deck using off-the self hardware. It would require a hole be drilled in the rear cargo deck, one that...
