  3. 2012 Broken down Volt, transmission and AC compressor replacement $7500!!

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    My 2012 Volt broke down and the dealership is quoting me $7500 for repairs. They would replace the motor 1? in the transmission and the AC compressor. To make a long story short my Volt coasted to a stop and would never turn back on, this was after a self-repair on the bearing that makes the...

  8. How do we get GM to re tune HVAC software on 2013 onwards Gen 1

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    GM installed Automatic climate control to allow for lower energy consumption an maximum range. The 2013 onwards Gen 1 (at least the ones I've seen) need a revisit of the K33 software as they are: 1) Wasting electricity running the A/C unnecessarily counteractive to heating! 2) Running the A/C...
