  2. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    We have seen "gremlins" of various kinds being caused by a loose connection to the 12V battery or to its fuse block. Perhaps a dying battery could do this as well. The symptoms of loose connections can range from the dash and center console displays freezing, flashing, going "crazy", to...
  3. BMW
    Saw this ad on BMW i3 TV commercial. Unlike GM's Volt "marketing" person, BMW thinks potential buyers DO watch TV, the car CAN be explained, and they are running TV commercials here in Illinois. Sadly, the only Volt TV ad I have seen is not even from GM, its an insurance commercial. :( So BMW...

    Though somewhat rare, pebble/stone radiator punctures can happen to any car, including the Volt. I (and now GM for MY 2013-2014) agree that a bit more protection would be helpful.

    This follows about 2.5 years of days without issues. What's going on? I note that the view here can get distorted by posts about an issue someone is having. Meanwhile we in the silent majority say nothing about our non-issues. So what's going with my non-issues? I spent real money on this car...

    I would not want to be a Nissan Leaf driver in Atlanta about now. At least with the Volt you have a a backup fuel when the battery is drained. And for those who keep their Volt gas tank at a 2 gallon level, this situation illustrates why keeping a full tank might be a safer alternative...
