  1. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    The 8 year Voltec warranty on my 2013 Volt has about 9 months left to run. Other than the obvious (following the factory-recommended maintenance schedule) is there anything else I should be doing, testing, having checked by the Chevy dealer, now? Only 64,000 miles on the car, so I'll be...

    Long story short, my dealer does not want to honor the Voltec warranty. In fact, I don't think they're knowledgeable about hybrid/electric Volts and Bolts. Can anyone give me a good recommendation for a dealer in the Miami area? I am willing to drove around issue I can be sure that my car is in...

    I need either a comprehensive list of all parts within a 2013 Volt that are defined (by GM) as "Voltec components" or a GM-created/approved definition of what constitutes a "Voltec Component". Does such a thing exist? Thank you!

  8. Chevy Bolt EV Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs
    Initially I was going to post about the fact that my volt (despite no hilly terrain or cold weather here in florida) has significantly reduced charge after only 4 yrs of ownership and about 50000 miles.

    So I just had my 2012 Volt at the dealer due to a "Service High Voltage Charging System" Error message, and I have to say i'm rather disappointed with the dealer and Chevy. First the car is at 90,006 Miles, and this is the second time in a year that the error appeared. First the dealer issue...

    I bought a certified pre-owned 2012 Chevy Volt 9 months ago and have driven it 10K wonderful miles. A few nights ago, while my Volt was charging, the car started honking. I looked out in the garage and noticed the smell of burning plastic. The charger was really hot and when I unplugged the...

  15. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    I bought my used 2012 Volt about 2 months ago. It would charge fine on the L1 Voltec that came with the car. After a couple of weeks the charging started to fail and after reading threads here, I discovered that the old extension cord and outlet were hot. I switched out the cord with a nice...

    Is there any cash value to a dead L1 Voltec EVSE (2d generation 'improved' Lear model with orange cord, black pigtail, and orange amp button)? The POS unexpectedly just died on me and I need to know what to do with it. Does it have any value on ebay, for parts? (How much?) Will municipal...
  18. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Has anyone had this happen? I got a text that charging was interrupted and the right light would flash red then it would click back to green for a second then go back flashing red again. It's been raining all day - do you think the charger isn't waterproof enough? It's mounted on the side of...

    We have been charging and using our Volt fine for 18 months in Canberra Australia. It is a great car and we only wish there were more people who recognized how good they are. Recently our electricity supplier has offered a new low cost off-peak rate just for electric cars. We decided to take...

    Not sure what to do next. I have a 1.9 year old Voltec that worked fine for this time, but now I'm experiencing what seems like intermittant connection. I hear the double chirp of the horn randomly at night and then sometimes i'll get a disconnect alert via sms. The strange thing is that it only...
