Re: Looking.. and looking.. for my first EV

FWIW, we had 2 2014 Spark EVs *have 2 Bolts now in case you are wondering. Neither of our Spark EV cars had DCFC.

Re: 2051 Spark EV body paint are kind of thin.

Having come out of a crappy ultra thin paint from a 2012 VW, the 2014 Spark EV I had for 2 years had less chips so it's all relative. What you need to keep in mind is the Spark (in general) is the cheapest economy car sold by Chevy so it wouldn't surprise me that paint is also cheaper quality than s...

Re: 12 volt battery life ?

2014 Spark EV OEM 12V battery replaced with OEM original AGM when the car was 5 years old due to too many incidents of idiot lights and battery unable to keep charge above 12.4 consistently. New battery meant no more problems and no more fast draining down to 11.2 to 11.9

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...
