  1. Using a Chevy dealer repair shop, vs. a good, trusted general auto repair service

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    This question arose and was touched on in another thread, where I mentioned taking my Volt to the close-by auto repair shop that I've been taking my other/prior cars to for 10 years, without complaint. Someone responded that I should take it to a Chevy dealer, because they'd be more up-to-date...

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Hi - After a number of glorious years, my stock EVSE stopped working. The top light turns green and the bottom light flashes red three times, pauses, and then flashes red three times again. Rinse, repeat. I've tried different outlets with the same outcome. I took it to a dealership who...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hello, I recently totaled my 2013 Volt (not my fault). Most of the damage is up front, and it doesn't appear to be too deep - radiators will need to be replaced, etc. Charger module got scuffed, but it's probably fine. Steering wheel and knee airbags deployed. It looks like most of the...
  5. Attention Volt owners

    Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    I was driving into work one day, climbed a hill just fine and as soon as I started down the hill the gas engine shut off and no acceleration, the only thing that was on was the display and the ACC lights. I had it towed to the Chevy dealership. They were able to charge the battery and got it to...

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Just turned over 90k miles on my 2011. I have the hatch strut recall and I wanted to take it in to the dealership before I reached 100k miles anyway. I just bought the car used a month ago. I have no idea what maintenance has been done. I'm going to have the tires rotated and oil changed...
