  2. Anything I should have checked before bumper to bumper expires?

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Gen2 Volt
    Hi- some quick background. I bought my first Volt in 2015 - a lightly used lease return 2013 Gen1. Loved it so much that my wife took it over and I bought a second 2013 for myself. Yesterday I sold my 2013 and purchased a one owner 2017 Premier with 35,850 miles on it. So I'm new to Gen2s and...
  3. Should I accept shipment of this Draw-tite hitch? Opinions wanted.

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Ordered a new Draw-Tite 24947 hitch for my 2018 Volt. It arrived yesterday, to my surprise, with no box. It was just wrapped in a few skimpy pieces of cardboard and a lot of poly-wrap. I've ordered a lot of things online in my life, and never seen anything like this! It seems to have survived...
  4. Sideview Mirror Replacement (Driver's Side)

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I was too close to the side of my garage and cracked the sideview mirror housing. It's actually ok, but some pieces around the edge of both the black plastic and blue plastic parts broke off, so it's a bit jagged. No wind noise, and no functional impact. Purely cosmetic. I was looking into a...
  5. Where do you put the trash?

    Gen2 Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I haven't seen any ideas that I am fond of for a trash can on the gen2 volt. I went through this thread: But was hoping for something a bit less obvious. Has anyone found an somewhat...
  6. Software Update for Gen2

    Gen2 Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Like Microsoft and Apple, I expect GM to continuously update Software. Improve Lane assist (sooner, tighter), know the speedlimit from Navigation, etc. Any thoughts or Intelligence on that? Insiders :)
  7. Playlists in Gen2 without Apple?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Anyone know of a good way to create working MP3 playlists for my USB stick without using any Apple products? I've searched around, and most folks who have posted about playlists are using iTunes, which, for personal reasons I'd rather not get into here, is not an option for me. Thanks!
  8. Transmission Chain

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    On the Gen2 output to wheels is linked to the differential by a chain. On the late 70's we had a Jeep that used a chain to couple the output from the transmission to the center diferencial (at the time called Quadra Track). In our particular case, we had to replace the chain twice in 10 years...
  9. Gen 2 LT Wheels Custom Paint Album and a whole lot of blather

    Gen2 Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I had been lurking and planning to buy since mid-2015 after I realized our then-new solar array was going to produce more than enough to support an EV. Test drove a Leaf (meh, and the offered lease was absurdly expensive), checked out VW e-Golf (decided I didn't want range anxiety), then drove a...
  10. POLL: Your Gen2 average EV only range

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Just pick up a 2017 myself less than a week ago, already seeing more than 20% increase on my EV only range compared to my 2013. Here in Quebec temperatures are in the low 40s (around 5 degress Celsius) so I am curious on what to expect for warmer days! In cold conditions, my average range is...
  11. 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...
