  1. 2018 Gas Mileage sudden drop

    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...

    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.

  3. Selecting EV Home Charger

    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...
  4. 2017 battery issues and question on reprogramming

    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...
  5. ⚡️Is a 2016 Bolt / Volt evse/charge cord backwards compatible with the 2013 Volt?

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    ⚡️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!
  6. 2017 Volt Engine/Drivetrain

    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...
  7. Rattle at high speeds or high wind.

    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...
  8. Wind Buffeting in Gen 2 Windows (Front)

    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...
  9. Gen 2 "L" brake lights

    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...
  10. Gen 2 CS Mileage / Long Trip Performance / Highway EV Range - 50+ MPG, 68 EV Range

    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...
  11. 2 Gen2 Volts in Garden Grove

    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...
  12. Going to be very few Gen2 Volts with HOV stickers in CA!

    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 is usually behind and under reported. How about...
  13. Another Photo-shopped Gen 2 Volt.... silver, more from the front side...

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    A pretty good image re-work.... MrEnergyCzar
  14. Gen 2 Voltec powerful enough for other platforms?

    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...
  15. 2 More Images of the Next Volt....

    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.... MrEnergyCzar
  16. GM Volt Plans for Hamtramck confirmed

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020) I liked this article because it talks a little more about the future Volt... Can't wait for some details!
  17. Generation 2.0 Volt....

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Is it slated to come out the summer of 2015? Are they actually working on it? Does anyone know anything about Gen 2.0? Do they do these things in secret? I assume it will have a 5th seat.... What does anyone know? MrEnergyCzar
