    Toyota is telling everyone to park the car and not drive it until they determine a fix. Yikes. Subaru issues recall for about 2,600 Solterra EV's as it is functionally the same car.
  2. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    Hello, I have a 2018 Chevy Volt with very low miles. The check engine light came on and I took it to get checked and it gave a code of P04221 EVAP small leak detected. The guy at AutoZone said it could be a loose gas cap. I tightened and it didn't go away. I took it to Chevy and they said that...

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration just released a news bulletin with a “park outdoors” order at risk of catching on fire. This applies to approximately 485,000 vehicles. No, not EV's, these are gas powered vehicles. Today's recalls come after U.S. National Highway Traffic...
  4. Bolt Owners Forum - Resources, Reviews & Photos
    Hi, We lease a 2020 Bolt EV. About a month ago when we called to inquire about the long wait to get this car back into working order, we received correspondence that, while we wait for our car to receive replacement or modification of batteries, we could rent a car from Hertz at GM's expense...
  5. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    This new recall announced today on the Bolt is quite unsettling. Are the problems with the Bolt and its battery possibly applicable to Volts (specifically, Gen2 Volts)?
  6. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 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...
    "Hybrid Powertrain Control Module 2" HPCM2 software to increase time before low voltage / reduce power is engaged. It could be a serious issue in traffic for the minority of Volt owners who have developed battery problems. Mine is still amazing in summer time - even peaked 82Km estimated EV...
  8. Generation 1 Chevy 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...

    I just got a service email from my dealer saying there is a new recall. Has anyone had this done? Is it a firmware update for the nav system?: GM Program #: N150747 Date Issued: Dec 16, 2015 Program Title: SIRIUS XM TRAVEL LINK FEATURE AVAILABILITY Program Status: INCOMPLETE

    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...
  13. Generation 1 Chevy 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...
  14. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    I went to ELCO chevy out in Ballwin today to inquire about getting a new style charger. Mine is the one with the orange cord and the 12" pigtail. First they tried to tell me it wasn't under warranty, I had to point out the 8 yr 100,000 mile warranty the hybrid components. Then they never heard...
  15. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 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...

    Hello everyone. I had a very bad experience today with a local dealer today where I took my 2013 Volt for a repair and now I really need to vent out my experience.

    I was in for service on my heater this morning. They told me that a new recall had just come in for the inverter logic control module. It's a software update. He didn't have any other information. Just thought I'd share.
