Re: Problems with radio, onstar and compass

YES... there is an issue. I have to take my Bolt in for the same problem actually. the Red light is not good. In my case its still covered under the bumper to bumper warranty but I'm not sure it will be on an older Spark EV. For reference my compass stopped working and my on-star button is always re...

Re: Welp, bought my Spark at lease-end....

At least its the 'devil you know' and compared to what they are going for on Carvana, you did alright. I heard about others having to pay $15,000 at lease end for their 2014 so they just turned them in instead.

I'd say you did pretty darn good.. .congrats!

Re: Lots of used Spark EVs near San Jose, CA

as 2017 Bolt leases come due in the coming months, more people will buy used Bolts instead of used Sparks methinks.... just how it goes. The Spark EV will always leaving me smiling with very fond memories as my first EV car before buying my Bolt!

Re: Wheel/tire upgrade

Re: New Chevy Spark EV owner

We changed to different tires on our former 2nd Spark (much better grip) but lost 11 miles per charge in the process as fair warning.

Re: New Chevy Spark EV owner

Get some snow tires if you plan to drive it in winter! The stock tires are absolutely horrid in snow/winter conditions (yes I speak from experience) That being said, I just replaced the fronts with the same exact Bridgestone Ecopia tires so range wouldn't suffer ...be ready to get as bad as 46 mile ...

Re: Replacement Battery Cost

@NORTON Does your 2014 have DCFC? If yes, do you use it often? I have a theory about the 2014 Spark EV battery aging better and another about not using DCFC as often. Curious to know if I'm wrong. But... I also hope replacement / rebuilt batteries will be available in the near future to revitalize S...
