Hi,

I own a 2011 Opel Ampera (similar to chevy Volt) and i have been noticing a strange "bumpy" feeling when the car is in a regen situation and then engages power, it looks like if it is engaging a gear or something similar.
Does anyone experience anything similar?

I don't remember any reports of this and I certainly haven't experienced it. It could be a problem which you're only experiencing when regen is working. Is that at higher speeds or lower speeds? Does it show up when you're in Charge Depletion or Charge Maintenance Mode? There is a very slight change when the clutches engage/disengage for MGA but that's almost imperceptible. I normally can't feel it.

I would definitely get it checked out.

What do you mean by bumpy? When the car switches from deceleration (regen) to acceleration (engaging power), there is a slight hesitation that is normal. If you're observing something else, I would have it looked into.
