Re: Questions and Data tracking

I wonder if dealers even have the proper equipment. Here is a link to the Idaho National Laboratory's battery capacity testing on four 2015 Spark EVs. This is data I believe and it does show battery degradation. https://avt.inl.gov/vehicle-button/2015-chevrolet-spark Very interesting write up by IN...

Re: Battery degredation

My warranty booklet says 35%, hopefully that's not a typo. Any chance you'd post a picture of the front of your warranty manual and where it says 35%? I can not for the life of me find any specific battery degradation warranty info on the web regarding the 2015, and I bought mine second hand (no ma...

Re: A "funny" thing happened on the way to CarMax

Follow up: Spark has been back in my possession for two weeks (had vacation and food poisoning since, eventful). Paid a $116 ransom, in the end, all I received worthwhile was a carwash. Prior to picking up/paying for the vehicle, I spoke with an attorney very familiar with lemon law. GM/Chevrolet h...

Re: L2 portable generator charging

As an aside, picking fruit under hot sun should not be American job, either. I knew some guys who used to work in auto plants. It was mind numbing with some intermission. Pay was artificially high due to UAW. They liked the pay, but hated wasting time and mind. Hopefully automation continues to inc...

Re: Lexani LXTR203 Tires - ~5,000 mile review

Initially, efficiency numbers suffered.... After ~2,000 miles (a month of driving for me), efficiency had gotten better. Occasionally I've seen some trip numbers doing local driving, where wind and elevation aren't really factors, that just boggle the mind 9+mpkwh. On the highway, it still doesn't ...

Re: Battery degredation

Hopefully this one will come in a little higher because if the degradation continues at that rate I won't be able to make my 54 mile round-trip commute in a year or two. ....was hoping the Spark could bridge the gap til then. My wife loves driving the car and has a much shorter commute so we may ke...

Re: Battery degredation

I recently ordered a 2015 Spark EV from Carvana that just came off a 3-year lease with about 17,500 miles on it.... ....it showed exactly 15kWh capacity. I'm sending it back and requested another one. Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately, this battery capacity level (~15kwh) is pretty much what is t...

Re: A "funny" thing happened on the way to CarMax

Well here we go. Just received a phone call from service. We can't figure out what's wrong, come pick up your vehicle, owe an hour diagnostic. I'll email GM corporate and see what they say. Driving a nice new Bolt doesn't feel so great all of a sudden... Edit: I'll go talk with the higher than servi...

Re: Aftermarket speakers?

Ohms are important, but not really. Size of the speaker is important but not really. Just get as close to the original as possible right size and don't go overboard on the watts should do the trick. I'm also looking at possibly putting in those baffles in may help with the rear bass response... the...
