  1. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    First off, I would like to say I used to love my 2012 Chevy Volt with 83000. Recently I have ran into some minor and moderate issues. On January 27, 2015, I had a CEL with codes PLAF0, PLE00, P0CD2, PlAF2, PLE22, POAC4. According to my research, some codes it pointed to a bad battery coolant...
  2. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    Well perhaps GM designed a secret odometer into the Volt's L1 EVSE, because, literally, on the exact same day, our 2012 Volt's warranty ended because of mileage, yesterday, the charger/EVSE died. Totally shot -- no lights no clicks, nothing. (This unit was already a replacement, changed out...
  3. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    OK everyone, this is kinda urgent -- my car is in the shop today. It literally is about to go over to 100k and I took it in to get the main traction battery checked, and some other, minor problems. The dealer service department called and said that they checked for error codes and that the...
  4. Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    Has anyone heard this before? That the "old" 2012 charging cord will not work with the 2014 Volt, that it's not compatible? The only thing I can associate this with is the 8A-12A switch on the old EVSE and the current insistence of the car on setting 8 or 12 amps for charging. Is there...
  5. Wheels, Tires, Brakes - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    I got my volt brand new in march 2014 and today i have 9200km on it and when i visited my local tire store they measured the remaining thickness on the stock tire and they was really surprized to see my two front are at 6/32" and my two rear are at 9/32" tire after only 9000km !!! I went to my...
  6. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    I’m a new 2015 volt owner. When I bought the vehicle, the dealership was highly recommending an extended warranty package on top of the normal warranties. They quoted $1400 for a 6 year extended warranty. Is a warranty like this worth it? Have you had trouble with your volt where you needed...
  7. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    GMPP: any owner (not lease) here bought it? Hello, new owner here. Not new to the EV scene, as I also own a Leaf. Reading up on the Voltec system, I am amazed by Chevy's engineering team. But, I have friends who had <10 years old Pontiac that had problems left and right, I am not sure if I...
  8. Chevy Volt News, Events
    I've had issues with the 3 air dam pieces staying together since getting the car, but now the snow has done a little number on it. The air dam and the clips will no longer stick into the bumper fascia as the plastic tabs have been ripped. I wasn't doing any crazy off-road driving...just your...
  9. Wheels, Tires, Brakes - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    I noticed yesterday that my 2012 Volt with 34,000 miles has cracks in the sidewalls of two tires near the bead. One of them is slowly leaking air through the crack (I noticed the issue when I heard air coming out). I brought the car into my dealer this morning and they first tried to tell me...
  10. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    Volt - bad review has been updated - good news! ----- See updates on page 3 -------- My Volt review four months in. Let me start by saying that I really enjoy the car, and I love the idea of a primarily electric vehicle. I think that the propulsion system is really without competition in the...
  11. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    It was working, then it was not. It simply failed. No lights, and the handle light does not come on. The Volt does charge via the 120v EVSE. So it is not a Volt failure. Power is flowing to the unit, both fuses have continuity. Flipping the breaker off/on, allowing to sit overnight and flipping...
  12. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    From day one my CT-500 made a slight hum when under load. About six weeks ago it began to intermittently hum/buzz more loudly during charging. The buzz sounds very much like a loose transformer lamination. I contacted SPX who, in turn, contacted Coulomb. Coulomb policy is to replace...
  13. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    Im pretty sure the 2013 Volts destine for California will have upgraded battery warranties that will meet the California Air Resource Boards approval for the $1500 rebate and the car pool lane stickers. I'm almost postive this is correct and when my 2013 Volt ships in a couple weeks I will...
  14. Generation 1 Chevy 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...
