  2. Carmax said there were no recalls! The dealer just performed TWO!

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    One week after picking up my new 2015 Volt Premium from Carmax (where they said in writing that it had NO outstanding recalls), I had 2 of them taken care of at my local dealer. I brought it in because the MyChevrolet APP said that it had a Liftgate Strut Rod Detach #14274 recall. When I picked...

  6. Odd Fix for Cadillac Ignition Switch Recall

    General Motors and General Automotive Topics
    So I took my Cadillac in for the GM recall on the faulty ignition switch. They needed both keys. When "the work" was finished I had the same keys but with an extra, lightweight circular wire coil added (the kind that connects the fob to the key) and a service invoice that had a page of text that...
  7. DoChevy dealers care about Volt owners? My recent Chevy service issues.

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Two months ago a front tire went flat so I called OnStar at 9:00 AM. After a completely wasted day of moronic tow companies not showing on time or not showing at all, I finally got my car out of the dealership at 5 PM with a bill about $40 more than every other local independent tire store...

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    So, I took my 2012 Volt into the dealer for its 2nd oil change (35K miles) and tire rotation. The dealer told me that there are two warranty services needed. 1. The battery coolant check and 2. Power Module reprogramming. I have heard of the first one. In fact, it was addressed last year...

  17. My Volt is in for the battery enhancement etc.

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Just wondering how many other owners have had this done and how well did it go? I have to say that I don't like relying on my gas powered vehicles. It's amazing how without the volt you feel like you are buying gas every other day and when I'm "volting"gas stations become a nostalgic...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I just got my Volt back after having the battery enhancement thing done. My clock was wrong, but that's the only thing I noticed. If my car lost the time, why did I not lose my radio presets? I thought that was strange. I'm not completely happy with the dealer though. They didn't seem to...
