Re: Considering buying used 2015 Spark EV with 22K miles

I've had my 2015 since 11-18 and am up to 22K miles and it still charges past 84. In the winter, in AZ, in a garage it fell to the mid 70's. You should be getting better than 60. The Chevy dealers here will check voltage and all things electric for free, takes about 1.5 hours, may want to check with...

Re: Methods to reduce battery degradation?

I've had my 2015 for 16 months. Have gone from 14000 miles to 21000. I don't track battery degradation. I charge at home a few times a week and depending on temperature, I live in Arizona, the car continues to charge to the high 80's, low 90's. When it was cold I got high 70's. Charged yesterday to ...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

Yeah, have had that issue when I had the BMW i-3. The support structure for Tesla is why I'm leaning that way in the future, but, waiting to see all the other manufacturers offer and if/when the charging stations get better, are more plentiful and batteries gain more miles and fast charge.

Re: 2016 Chevy Spark for $7,950 or 2016 Nissan Leaf for $9,850

Love my 2015, just turned 20K miles. It has little to no heat in colder temps. Being in AZ is great in the summer as the A/C blows cold. The heater...not so much. The heated seat doesn't warm your feet or hands or anything but lower back and glutes. Yes, VERY quick. Where do you live? It gets cold i...

Re: Problems with fast charging

I've had my 2015 for a year and have only DC'd it once at a Chevy dealer. No problem at all.

Re: Ev in extreme heat

Now that it is cooling down it charged last night to 77, level 2. My wife's Volt charged to 60, the last month or so it's been in the low 50's. When I got it last year on Black Friday it was charging up to 94, and cruising about 40mph the upper end of GOM was 117! So, temps and cruising speed return...

Re: Best way to charge for battery life

The charge gets low, I plug in at night and drive away in the morning. A few days later the charge is low, I plug it in at night and drive away in the morning. No stress. It charges, I use the charge...rinse and repeat. Don't over think it. You'll drive yourself nuts. Get in and go, wave as you pass...
