Hi all,

I've been lurking around here for a few weeks, and have learned a ton about this amazing car. This forum is a great resource!
I just put a down payment in on a 2017 kinetic blue premier, so I thought it was high time time to step out of the bushes and say hi! I am really excited to join the ev community, and track how little gas I use!
We live in upstate NY, Saratoga Springs to be exact, and my daily commute is about 15 miles rt so I foresee long stretches of time of not using the ice.

One interesting note: at the dealership yesterday the salesman told us that GM had just announced a brand new recall, and as such he couldn't even let the car off the lot until the parts come in and they can do the repairs. He was vague about specifics, but said it had something to do with the wheels. As the recall involves waiting for parts, he couldn't even give us a rough time line for delivery. Grrrrrr! I will call Monday and press him for details, and post an update here when I learn more.

That's good info, thanks! How have you dealt with charging in colder weather? I noticed the manual says to keep it plugged in when temps drop below 30f, which is a solid 3 months here. Do you plug in nightly regardless of charge state?
The only time mine is unplugged at home is if there is a thunderstorm coming through. Leave it plugged in all the time.
