  1. HID woes, 20 amp fuse for headlamps?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hello all, I was hoping to get the best possible headlights with as much infrequent bulb replacement as possible. I fell onto GTR lighting and purchased a 55 watt 9012 kit. So I go and install them and they don't light up. At all. I have reversed the polarity to no avail and the HIDs do work...
  2. How common is the "Engine Not Available" situation?

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    I was planning to buy a 2017 Volt, but in researching it I discovered this recurring situation on forums like this one and review sites of the Volt losing propulsion power while driving. The driver then sees "Engine not available" on the dash and the car has to be towed. How common is this...

  4. Chevy or the dealership standing behind the lemon would be nice

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    Chevy or the dealership standing behind the lemon would be nice. Issues 1. Every time it gets cold the car acts up. 2. Dealership does not enter the service into Chevy's database, so when you call you "volt adviser" they have no record of you car being worked on. 3. Even when they pull...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi everyone, As some of you know, I've been without my Volt for a few days now because of brake problems. I'm really bummed because I haven't even had the car for a month, and it's already in the shop. I probably won't get it back until later this week. Prior to buying it, I swore up and...

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    I was reading the Edmunds Inside Line Blog today and came across the Volt review. He states that it cost him $4.16 to charge his Volt and drive it 25.6 miles. His math is off, for one. Saying that he was charged "$.33/kw", when he clearly paid .$22/kw. He then states that he is upset that he...
