Most likely this is due to time and not mileage. The oil life also counts days, its around 18 months for the life of the oil so if the oil has not been changed and the car was made about 6 months ago then this is normal. Only on a Volt is the time also a factor in the oil life.

Yep. Perfectly normal. Don't give it a second thought. Do you like the rest of the car?

FYI, you've posted this in the Bolt EV section of the forum. You'll probably get more responses if you post it in the Volt section.
Thread moved! :)

The oil life meter in the Volt takes both usage and age into consideration. Even if the car has no miles, it will eventually zero out oil life over 2 years. If it is at 65%, I am assuming it was put in service about 8 months ago.

Don't let that prevent you from enjoying the Chevy Volt. Read the owner manual, and follow all recommended maintenance schedules, including oil changes. Let the oil life drop to 10% then change it.

I think the oil interval timer counts down over 24 months if the engine usage does not cause it to go faster than that. So if the car were manufactured 11 months ago, that would be right.

Brand new as in "off the assembly line in April, 2017"? Or brand new as in, "it's been sitting on a lot somewhere for a year before being sold to you"?

Note: sure would be nice if people posted their model year when posting questions.

FWIW my 2017 Volt also has ~110 miles but the oil life is at 95. If I recall correctly, it was just delivered to the dealership when we got it. They said to bring it in when it drops below 20.
