I already tried to convince the dealer to activate Onstar on my Bolt that is still on a train somewhere so I could track it in real time, but he said he couldn't do that till he had a deal signed. Owell. LolMan,, you are chomping at the bit !!
Wish I was you! Fun times for you !
Can I come by and ride in your MD Bolt when you get it?
I would think a roof rack / bike rack is a safer bet when it comes to warranty issues vs. a trailer hitch.
But then, I've never tried to put a muddy mtn bike up on a roof rack....
Thanks for the info as I have ended up with an LT & want to go kayaking......... ;-)
That's a good looking set up. That would handle my canoes and kayaks quite well!!I got my Yakima roof rack setup last week (Yakima Skyline towers, 50" core bars, landing pads #19). Install was pretty simple.
Definitely recommend getting the locking cores though. You can pop off the bars in less than a minute...which means thieves can also pop them off just as fast!

If I ever pull down the roof liner, I'll look for through bolts. But given that body components of both the Volt and Bolt are assembled with adhesives, I am not concerned. GM knows how to glue cars together for strength, stiffness and less squeaks.I sure hope those roof rails are screwed into the roof of the bolt and not 3m taped on. I like the heftiness of what they put on the tops of Subarus and Suburbans.
Wait, are cars are glued together, not welded or bolted? That's scary.If I ever pull down the roof liner, I'll look for through bolts.

"GM used impact-resistant adhesives before the 2015 model year in some cases, Scharton noted, going back as far as the 2012 Cadillac ATS and Chevrolet Volt. (Subsequent ATS and Volt model years also have the epoxies.)"Yeah, we're gonna need a source on that. I'm guessing non-structural are glued, though. I can see that (though not impressed by it).
All of the above are used, as well as rivet's.Wait, are cars are glued together, not welded or bolted?
What you don't know, can't hurt you. Reminds me of the day I'm walking off the plane, a bunch of people are at the gate waiting to board the plane I just got off of, and the employee at the gate announced that there is a problem with the plane, and that they are flying another plane from Atlanta to replace this plane, so their flight will be delayed. The collective moan from the crowd, then the realization that I was just on that plane that got grounded gave me concern.Then you probably don't want to know what they do with composites on modern airliners...
