New White LT Bolt

Well, I've been reading this forum for about a year now, and finally signed my name after the Chevy website found the exact model I was looking for at a nearby dealer. White, LT, comfort and confidence package, and fast charging. Even though I have a Costco membership, the dealer stuck with MSRP of $39,295. There were a few other dealer-added goodies (remember the Tru-Coat scene in Fargo?) which brought it up to $42,200 before my $3000 trade-in credit and down payment.

I got a quick demo of the Onstar feature, which is free for 6 months. One of the dealer extras was something called 6th Sense, I think, which seems to have tracking and theft protection, which may overlap with the Onstar feature. I'll have to look into that.

Heck, I'm still trying to figure out the gearshift, though. Meanwhile, electrician will be installing the wall charger tomorrow, theoretically. Let's hope he shows up!

This is my first EV. I owned a Chevy 3.4 Euro Lumina in the 90s thru 2008, and researched the existing hybrids in '08. I drove a Prius and didn't care for it at all. I drove a Civic hybrid and thought the acceleration was nonexistent, so I ended up buying a gas-burning Civic, which averaged 35 mpg. The later battery problems and software "upgrade" issues with the Civic hybrid made me glad I bought the ICE Civic at the time. Though the sun visors kept exploding in the summer heat, and had to be replaced every few months. What a pain! Plus, I had a carport at the time, and the AZ sun burned the paint right off the car. Stripped it down to the metal. Lots of other heat-related issues with gaskets and other external parts disintegrating. Now I own a garage, so hopefully that won't be a problem.
