Hi everyone, my name is Mark and after my first 30 days of owning my new 2015 Volt I have a fair evaluation, I believe?! From the get go I have been extremely happy with the performance of this car. My mileage continues to increase with every week it seems. I have gone from 37 to 40 miles/chg which fits nicely into my daily driving habits.

A couple concerns I have had though are the lack of personalizing my radio station settings and the road noise generated by the tires.

Overall great little car and I look forward to many miles of service. I am at 1295 miles to date and NO gas money spent!

Hi Mark

Welcome. I too am a newby. Only been here a couple months .. but this is a great forum for information, tips and even help with certain questions !!! I have spent hours reading past posts and new ones to learn as much as possible.
With the radio, I have loaded hundreds of songs on the HDD and you can preset any/all stations you want. There are some posts about quieter tires.
Good luck and happy EVing.

Do you mean station presets/favorites? There are 36 (I think) favorites that can store AM, FM, or XM stations.

The radio isn't the easiest to figure out, even after reading the manual sometimes, lol
On the radio page, tune a station and touch/hold the little tab at the bottom of the screen to store it as a favorite. You can mix AM/FM/XM next to each other, doesn't need to be one page per

..I think. Haven't touched it since April, but I'm pretty sure that's how it worked.

And if you don't have enough favorites to fill all 36 spots, you can cut down the amount of favorites pages to whatever you need.

Thanks. I never have figured this out. I'll try it next time I'm in the car (after I dig it out of the snow). :)

And HuskerSailors, welcome to the forum!

For music - You can use a USB stick for a poor man's HDD, that's what I use. You can set it to random play which works for me.

Welcome to the forum. Enjoy, lots to lean from the folks here. Pretty easy to preset radio channels as mentioned. I Transport a lot of Chevys for my local dealer so I get to play with all the radios and lean how to set. Later aceinsp
