Re: Battery Degradation vs Battery Limited Warranty

I was out of town so my father took the car to the dealership to have a spare key made and capacity check the traction battery. Over the phone the service manager tells me if there is a problem with the battery it will throw a code otherwise there is nothing wrong with it. Soooo, you don’t know how/...

Re: Battery Degradation vs Battery Limited Warranty

I have an appointment Thursday to have the battery checked. I'll at least know if it is or isn't below the limit. They will charge the labor to Chevrolet if the battery fails. They will charge the labor to me if it doesn't. If my luck holds I'll owe more money.... :lol:

Re: Battery Degradation vs Battery Limited Warranty

The photo on CarGurus was of the dash at that time and showed 80 miles on the guess o meter with most of a full charge so I made the...

Re: Battery Degradation vs Battery Limited Warranty

After having by wife total my first Spark EV (White 2014, no DCFC) and my son totalling my second Spark EV (Red 2015, DCFC) I traveled 700 miles to Fresno to buy a 2014 with 5900 miles on it hoping everything would be fresh.

Fire department started in with the jaws and ruined the driver door and dinged the passenger door before they realized the door would just open. I c...

Re: 2014 vs 2015

I have a 2014 and 2015. No question the 2015 is quicker. I have never seen as much range as the 2014 though. Stands to reason. 2014 is a bit heavier due principally to the larger battery.

Re: List your miles and MPGe

If your primary concern is environmentalist you will want to compare your EV to gasoline in terms of relative CO2 production. When you burn one gallon of pure gasoline you get 19.64 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) (from E10, gas containing 10% ethanol, you get 18.95 pounds of CO2). If you go to http...

Received two earthX ETX900 lithium iron phosphate batteries for the solar vehicle! I pray they are as great as they are rated on paper!
