    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    QQ: If a dealership service department is unable to properly replace the windshield wiper blades on a Volt after two tries should I give them a third one? LQ: Should I trust such a service for anything on a Volt? The Volt has symmetrical opposing left (part no. 22742323) and right (part no...

    Has anyone had to have their Blink charger repaired? I'm curious what your experience was like with Blink. My charger died a week ago today. By dead, I mean that it won't do anything. It won't charge the car, nothing appears on the screen, etc.. When I flip the circuit breaker off and back...
  6. A Great Service Experience at Ted Britt Chevrolet of Sterling

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    As you know me, I am a rather "glass half-empty" type and quick to criticize and point to errors and omissions. So this praise is indeed sincere and well-deserved. I had a short list of minor items that needed addressing so this morning I took my Volt to Ted Britt Chevrolet in Sterling. The...
  7. Hesitation/Power Loss

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I have had my 2012 Volt a little over 2 months. I absolutely adore it, but it is doing something that gives me cause for concern. I have noticed that it occasionally seems to hesitate or lose power for a few seconds when it should be accelerating. It seems to happen most often early in a...
  8. Have you had ZERO problems with your Volt?

    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...

  11. Impressed with dealer white glove treatment for battery enhancement...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Dropped the Volt off for the airbag check and battery enhancement service and got a loaded Buick LaCrosse to use through July 4th. This is basically a land yacht. I couldn't get a Vette but had a choice of 8 GM models. The dealer has a detailing company come in to detail the car and they're...
  12. Check engine light on after 419 miles (402 EV)

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    So yesterday I noticed that my check engine light was on in my new 2012 Volt so I pressed the blue OnStar button. The OnStar agent came on and ran a 'diagnostic' to check what was causing the light to be on. She told she needed to transfer me to a diagnostic specialist, after talking to the...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    After only 1500 miles on the odometer, my Volt has developed a problem. It's no longer charging. I plug in the 120V charger and about fifteen minutes later the green lamp goes to yellow. A few minutes later it goes green again for a couple of minutes and then yellow again, then out...
