I'm with you on this, Mike. I have tight garage space, and park with my front bumper an inch or two from the wall. When backing out, the steady tone sounds when I shift from Park to Reverse, warning of the wall IN FRONT of me. Really annoying.Thanks for the tip, Don. I did that, but the beeps are still annoyingly loud, especially when I'm going down my driveway and come close to some shrubs along the side. Seems like this is something to suggest to GM Volt designers.
