So I figured there might be interest in my adventure of acquiring a Bolt from CA and shipping it back to MD....and of course my personal experiences with the Bolt once I get my hands on it. Therefore, I have started a blog covering my experiences. Feel free to check it out. :cool:

This blog is useless without calling out the dealerships in question.
Ok, I'll give you the "good" one: Rydell Chevy in Northridge. :)

The other one? Do some detective work. ;)

Sounds like it was Keyes. I don't see how anyone benefits by not calling out a bad dealership/salesperson, as long as it's a fair critique.

Well if you want to be on the losing end of a lawsuit, sure call them out by name but it may cost you time and money. Businesses are being more aggressive than ever going after reviews / blogs in the online format.

Thanks for starting the blog and keep us posted. I assume you are leasing? I'm thinking the lease #'s are not going to be very good on the initial roll out. I might have to wait a few months.

It will soon be illegal to punish customers who criticize businesses online

FWIW: Thankfully this should no longer be the case once the Consumer Review Fairness Act of 2016 is signed into law. You can then feel free to blog/post online reviews galore!:D

Nope, purchase since only CA/OR can lease right now.

Yes, I'd rather CMA and just leave out specific names. Plus 1 guy at a dealership being a douche doesn't necessarily mean mean the whole dealership is bad. :p

Funny. We know the guy who purchased the first LEAF in Maryland (shipped from the West Coast). Good luck.

Nice read. Our Bolts are on the same shipment, so hopeful we see our cars soon!
Yeah, hopefully as soon as the end of the week!

I love how in your disclaimer at the bottom, you prohibit two specific websites from sharing your post. That cracked me up. ;)

Whereabouts in MD are you? I've got a good deal of family up there, and travel through frequently, so I'd like to keep a look out for that Bolt!
