  2. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    Wanted to thank all the contributors on this board for sharing your experiences. Wanted to share my experiences with the "simple" case of S-T-P (no other CELs lit). Have a 2018 Premier and started receiving the S-T-P warning message when trying to shut down the car - car will not shut down...
  3. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    When I purchased my 2016 volt in November 2015, it did not come with an android auto pre-installed. I was told that I would need to bring it back to have it installed a few months later. Since the dealer where I purchased it, was too far from my house, I took my car to the nearest dealer (Selman...
  4. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    Hi all, On a recent (and common) road trip for me, my 2018 Volt had dramatically reduced gas mileage (i.e. when using gas). I've taken this trip countless times in both my current Gen2 and my previous Gen1. The Gen2 usually had close to 40 mpg on this trip (gas only mpg), but this time it...
  5. For Sale
    Hey forum members, Selling my near mint 2017 Volt Lt. Bought it new in May of 2017. Very clean car and recently serviced. Clean history, no accidents and dealers serviced. Rare leather interior in the Lt model. It's a wonderful daily driver and gets about 60 miles on a charge and 44 mpg on the...
  6. Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hi All, just purchased a used 2017 Volt (Toronto, Canada). First post to the forum. I'm trying to track down a home level 2 charger that has the following abilities. - Plug for 6-30 socket (but I'm sure I can get adapter right?) - I need to calculate at the end of each month the cost on a...
  7. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Hi all- A couple weeks ago I noticed that when I turned on my volt (2017, 42k mi) the EV range was at 1 mi, then over 20 seconds slowly ramped up to full range. This happened a few times. The check-engine-light illuminated. Codes were as follows; P1E00, U2619, U2620, U2621, U2622, U2623...

    ⚡️Is a 2016 Bolt / Volt evse/charge cord backwards compatible with the 2013 Volt? I searched but could not find any backwards compatibility information regarding using a 2016 EVSE to charge a 1st generation 2013 Volt? Thanks everyone!
  9. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    I bought a 2017 Volt last week to replace a 2013 I've had for nearly 5 years. It's a nice upgrade, particularly the longer EV range, improved efficiency, LED lighting, and improved interior/user interface (yay, actual buttons). It drives great on electric, but on gas.....not so much. The gas...
  10. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    I have a 2017 Volt with 6000 miles on it, a solid 3000 of which are from high speed, long distance, trips on the Ohio turnpike (70 mph speed limit). I keep hearing an annoying rattle at speeds of 70 mph and above that is coming from somewhere in the rear. The rattle also occurs at lower...
  11. Care, Maintenance & Service - Gen2 Volt
    So I'll admit. I never hear of the term "wind buffeting" before looking up this issue. Yeah, I've experienced it. I'm sure we all have in most cars when rear windows go down alone in cars. I read in several articles from years past that in the Gen 1 Volt, that it was a known issue that could be...
  12. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I understand that Gen 2 Volts cause the brake lights to come on when the car is regenning in "L" drive mode. So if you push the gas and speed up or stay same, no lights, but if you take off gas and slow down, lights. Is that the correct way it works? Is there a way to stop the lights since Gen 1...
  13. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Apologies for the long title - hoping this will make it easier to search as others begin to dig into what to expect from the 2016+ on longer trips. After reading Wayne's write-up about his experience with the Gen2, I didn't have very high expectations about what should be anticipated on a long...
  14. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Just seen 2 white gen 2 Volts in Garden Grove at Simpsons Chevy. I guess one of them was dropped and is going back to GM. Other is for sale. They are not very knowledgeable about the Gen2 and kinda didn't realize the significance of having 2 in stock. Sales guy said they have been there for 2...
  15. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    The longer GM pokes around the fewer HOV sticker Gen2 Volts there will be. Should keep the resale value up when the My17 makes its way early 2016. Does anyone have a "credible estimate" on the remaining HOV stickers in CA? The http://www.arb.ca.gov is usually behind and under reported. How about...

  17. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Engineering question: with the 10-20% improvements in the various components of the Gen 2 Voltec drivetrain AND the increment to a 1.5L range-extender, would this allow the Voltec to become an option for vehicles such as the Malibu or Trax (small SUV)? I understand this isn't going to happen...
  18. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    These show the appearance of a 5th seat, aerial views.... it looks like the rear seat back goes all the way across without a split.... http://cdn.carbuzz.com/images2/380000/6000/0/386065.jpg http://cdn.carbuzz.com/images2/380000/6000/0/386067.jpg MrEnergyCzar
