The car is astounding! Comfy, FAST (Always drive in SPORT-MODE, same as VOLT), CUV-ish (moreso than my Nissan Leaf) with excellent visibility. Huge amount of room in the back (Massive improvement over the VOLT -- you could have an adult sit in the lap of another adult in the BOLT and still have leg room!).
I was satisfied with the tight turning radius (I did a hard U-turn to test this.) The video-rearview mirror is neat, but too narrow top to bottom - it sure is WIDE though from side to side.)
I did not notice the so-called 'narrower seats' - everything was comfy and spacious (I'm pretty average size though, 5'10", 165lbs).
The shifter unit was not as flimsy as I thought it might be (I still prefer the rounder 'button-free' version on the Nissan Leaf and the 'classic' style on the Volt).
The huge (yuge!) screen on the infotainment system was my only complaint, only because the colour scheme is really ---> REALLY <--- garish. Purple, Green & White? Who thought that was a good idea? I did not ask the sales guy how customizable (although I seem to recally the early concept version of the BOLT was fully customizable, not sure if the production version still allows for customizing colour and layouts).
I may have scared the salesman a wee bit as I dropped it into SPORT mode after gently reversing out of the parking spot in front of the store, and proceeded to tear out of the parking lot in the residential neighborhood (i.e. Drive it like you Stole it!). The car handles really great, and is basically the most STATE OF THE ART commuter car on the road. I say this with only having driven it for 20 minutes or so.
I was impressed.
LOL though, the dealership didn't have any L2 Chargers in their recently renovated dealership though. Amateur hour on that front. I was told they are installing one within 24 hours. I told them to install 4 of them at least if they are serious about demonstrating their commitment to VOLTS and BOLTS going forward. The countered that they had 9 Bolts on the lot, and sold 5 of them on the first day and they were serious.
